Churches Defaced in SC, CA With Obscene, Pro- Gay Messages

So – – churches in America are now being defaced by gay radicals – two in the past couple of weeks.

In California, a Catholic church was defaced with obscenities and pro-Gay messages over the Easter Weekend.

St. Jude Catholic Church of the City of Westlake Village was defaced on Easter weekend. The following brief story appeared in the April 11, 2013 issue of The Acorn, a community newspaper that serves Agoura Hills, Calabasas, Oak Park, and Westlake Village in California:

“Vandals targeted the 32000 block of Lindero Canyon Road sometime between Fri., March 29 and Sat., March 30, authorities said.

“The graffiti included a reference to homosexuality, several four-letter words and a swastika, a source told The Acorn. One scrawl reportedly said, ‘God is gay.’”

The story got no attention outside the small communities mentioned above.

And in South Carolina, a Christian church sustained $10,000 worth of damage.

The Guilford County Sheriff’s Office is investigating after a church was vandalized sometime between Friday night and Saturday morning.

Bales Memorial Wesleyan Church in Jamestown was spray painted, had flowers torn up, parking signs were ripped up and windows were broken.

The church sign was also broken and letters removed and the front entrance to the church was egged and sprayed with silly string.

One spray-painted message on the church door reads, “God loves (expletive)!!! He hates you!” Another said “Gay’s ok!”

The church bus was also damaged by the suspects keying the hood and pushing a sign through the front grill.

Damage is estimated at about $10,000, according to the Guilford County Sheriff’s Office. Members of the church spent Saturday cleaning up.

Note that these anti-Christian bigots mimicked the Westboro Baptist church’s (un-Christian) hateful message.  Instead of “God hates fags”, they said  “God loves (expletive)!!! He hates you!”

Sadly, the way our culture has been going, we’ll be seeing  more of this in the months to come.

Meanwhile, in another part of the world, a Christian church in Egypt was also the target of radicals, this past month.

At least seven people were wounded in an attack on a Christian church in the Egyptian province of Minya late Friday, in the latest incident of violence against the country’s Coptic Christian minority. The church had been established to commemorate the 20 Coptic Christians beheaded in Libya by the Islamic State militant group. Thirteen of the victims came from Minya’s al-Our village, where the church was being built, Daily News Egypt reported Sunday.

Coptic residents of al-Our had obtained permission to build the church in the aftermath of the beheadings in Libya, which left the impoverished village’s Christian community devastated. Thousands of people had mourned the victims following the release of an Islamic State video last month showing the men being executed. The beheadings prompted the Egyptian government to begin an air campaign in Libya targeting the militant group, also known as ISIS.

And in Mosel Iraq,  ISIS destroyed Christian grave sites. 

Via Fox News:

Even Iraq’s dead Christians aren’t safe from ISIS.

The Islamic State’s campaign of terror across the war-torn nation, which has already seen countless beheadings, destruction of priceless art and religious artifacts and insistence that Christians submit or die, now includes mass desecration of graves. Photos of the black-clad, extremist ghouls smashing headstones in cemeteries in the key northern city of Mosul were posted Thursday online under the title “Leveling Graves and Erasing Pagan Symbols.”

The ideological cousins of militant Islamists, are militant homosexuals, strangely enough. (Note, I say “militant” – as in fanatical, unhinged ideologues. Obviously most gays do not fall into this category, but unfortunately a rather loud and influential cohort does.) Both are fascistic, totalitarian freaks who demand that their worldview be embraced or there’ll be hell to pay. Both wish to totally control the culture and humiliate and subjugate those who don’t embrace it.

That one type of fascism is more bloodthirsty than the other only adds irony to the mix. Homosexuals, of course, are among the most persecuted individuals in Islamic societies.

15 Muslim Migrants Arrested In Italy After Hurling 12 Christian Refuges Off Boat

A massive influx of refuges and migrants from war-torn and impoverished African nations have been making their way across the Mediterranean from Libya to Sicily. According to the Italian Coast Guard, more than 10,000 people have made the desperate journey on rickety, often un-sea-worthy boats since last weekend.

CNN reports that as many as 400 migrants have been lost at sea.

The tragedy adds to the mounting death toll among those fleeing war and poverty in Africa and the Middle East.

So far this year as many as 900 have lost their lives. Last year at least 3,200 died making the journey. Since 2000, according to the International Organization for Migration (IOM), almost 22,000 people have died fleeing across the Mediterranean.

12 Christian refuges lost their lives during a particularly harrowing trip — not due to their boat capsizing – but through Islamic violence.

The IB Times reports:

Italian police have arrested 15 Muslim immigrants in Palermo, for allegedly having thrown Christian refugees off the rubber boat that was taking them to Italy after a fight for “religious reasons”, according to media reports.

Those arrested – from Mali, Guinea and Ivory Coast – were part of a group of 100 that were rescued off the Libyan coast by the Italian coastguard.

After their arrival in Palermo, the other migrants informed police that 12 Christian refugees were hurled off the boat and killed after a religious row with the 15 Muslims that were later arrested. Among the arrested is a 17-year-old, according to Repubblica newspaper.

Rep. Trey Gowdy: Witness list will include Cheryl Mills,Huma Abedin and Sid Blumenthal

On Wednesday’s “Hugh Hewitt Show, House Benghazi Select Committee Chairman Rep Trey Gowdy, the chairman of the House Select Committee on Benghazi, said Cheryl Mills, Huma Abedin, Sidney Blumenthal, Susan Rice and Ben Rhodes will be on his witness list to testify before the committee or commit to a transcribed interview.

Asked if his witness list would include Cheryl Mills, the former Secretary of State’s chief of staff, Gowdy responded,  “absolutely, and it was always going to include Ms. Mills. But, if you studied the correspondence between the State Department and Secretary Clinton after she decided to return the public record to the public a couple of months ago, that correspondence was directed to Cheryl Mills. So, Cheryl Mills needs to be talked to, not only with respect to Benghazi, but also with respect to the retention of the public records by Secretary Clinton after she separated.”

Huma Abedin will also be included on the witness list, Gowdy said because, “you have to if you want to write the final, definitive accounting of what happened before, during, and after Benghazi.”

He also said that Sidney Blumenthal, Ben Rhodes and Susan Rice will be on the list, “because I think your listeners would be interested in the chronology. We are taking the witnesses from the Department of State and CIA whose identities need to be preserved, we’re doing them first, and those are transcribed interviews. Then we are moving into the people who are more well known, the Susan Rice’s, the Ben Rhodes, and yes, you can include Sidney Blumenthal.”

Racist Judge Olu Stevens!!

The Watcher: What kind of excuse for a judge scolds a three-year-old and her parents in court who were victims of a home invasion and armed robbery as ‘racists’ because the little girl admitted she was now afraid of black men?

Meet Louisville, Kentucky 30th Judicial circuit Judge Olu Stevens.

At the sentencing trial of one of the robbers, a victim’s impact statement written by the little girl’s mother was entered into evidence. Part of it said, “Whenever we are running errands, if we come across a black male, she holds me tight and begs me to leave. It has affected her friendships at school and our relationships with African-American friends.”

Judge Stevens’ response? To excoriate the victims of the crime in open court as racists and to sympathize with the criminal who traumatized a young child and her family.

“I am offended. … I am deeply offended that they would be victimized by an individual and express some kind of fear of all black men,” he said.

“This little girl certainly has been victimized, and she can’t help the way she feels,” he said. “My exception is more with her parents and their accepting that kind of mentality and fostering those type of stereotypes.”

Not only did he chastise the victims of the crime, but he let Gregory Wallace, one of the two black perpetrators who pleaded guilty to the March 21, 2013, crime off on probation because “he deserves a chance to redeem himself.”

Can you even imagine the headlines nationwide if a white judge let off a white armed robber who had victimized a black family out of racial solidarity? But since this is a black judge, other then the local Courier-Journal, this passed by with barely a mention.

It’s interesting times we have in America. Even innocuous words and phrases are viciously attacked as ‘trigger words’ capable of excusing incredible excesses of rage, injustice and frequently violent reactions provided the perpetrator is white, heterosexual , male, and/or a religious Christian or Jew. Yet outright bigotry and racially motivated violence by select ‘protected groups’ isn’t even mentioned in the media, let alone criticized. To do so in the mainstream media or academia is to become quickly unemployable.

Here we have a little three-year-old who was sitting in her living room watching television with her parents when two thugs forced their way into her home and held up her mom and dad at gunpoint right in front of her. Since they were black males, is it any wonder that a child traumatized in that fashion would be frightened of other black males? In fact, her mom’s statement actually says that in spite of their best efforts to disassociate her from her fear of black males, the child is still fearful even around the family’s black friends.

But if course, it must be ra-aa-a-aacism, right judge? So of course they have to punished by being demonized, and by letting an armed robber off with probation on the grounds of racial solidarity.

You see, it’s no longer enough merely to not practice ra-a-aa-cism. You must be prepared to take responsibility for anything that people like Judge Stevens merely perceive as racist. Even if it’s just for the purpose of intimidation and the shaming of supposed ‘thought criminals.’

Judge Stevens will undoubtedly go unpunished for his racism and his perversion of justice. He’s just like certain judges back in the old Jim Crow days who issued rulings from the bench based on race. But as history shows us, those who practice bigotry and injustice against others frequently have it visited upon themselves eventually.

And payback is always a real bitch.

Enjoy your Weasel, Judge Stevens. As a disgrace to your office and your profession, you definitely rate it.

Check back next Tuesday to see who next week’s nominees for Weasel of the Week are!
