Christian Hate Group ‘Repent Amarillo’ Terrorizes Texas Town, Harassing Gays, Liberals, And Other ‘Sinners’

An evangelical Christian hate group called “Repent Amarillo” is reportedly terrorizing the town of Amarillo, Texas. Repent fashions itself as a sort of militia and targets a wide range of community members they deem offensive to their theology: gays, liberal Christians, Muslims, environmentalists, breast cancer events that do not highlight abortion, Halloween, “spring break events,” and pornography shops. On its website, Repent has posted a “Warfare Map” of its enemies in town.

Calling Repent an “American Taliban,” blogger Charles Johnson notes that the group’s moniker “Army of God” is a rough translation of “Hezbollah.” Led by a man named David Grisham, a security guard at a nuclear-bomb facility called Pantex, Repent first gained media attention in Texas following a campaign to boycott Houston for electing a gay mayor. The group, which is associated with Raven Ministries, collaborates with other Christian groups as well as forced pregnancy advocacy associations like “Bound 4 Life.”,,,,,,,,,,

if you dance you MUST pay the piper

if you hang with secretive shadowy religious cults (who helped support proposed laws in uganda which will allow people who are gay, people who KNOW someone is gay and don't report them and people with aids TO BE PUT TO DEATH) and deny that cult even exists (all the while watching some of the members f**k their brains out with spouses other than their own), well then you're going to EVENTUALLY have to account to US ALL ain't ya?

Did secretive religious group subsidize Congressman’s rent?
By David Edwards and Muriel Kane

Rep. Bart Stupak (D-MI) has been making headlines recently by threatening to torpedo health care reform unless the bill excludes coverage for abortion.

MSNBC's Rachel Maddow believes that Stupak is just looking for publicity with "this antiabortion stunt" and that "it is not rational to think that the Democratic-led House and the Democratic-led Senate are going to let him use health reform as a way to effectively ban abortion."

She points out, however, that Stupak's new notoriety means that he may "end up having to answer for some of the unexplained things that no one cared to have [him] explain before."

"For example," Maddow noted on Thursday, "Bart Stupak famously was one of the conservative politicians who lived at C Street -- a $1.8 million town house on Capitol Hill that featured in the Mark Sanford sex scandal and the John Ensign sex scandal and the Chip Pickering sex scandal. The house is home to a number of members of Congress. It has been reported to be run by the secretive religious group known as the Family."...............

Stupak has insisted, "There is no such thing as 'the Family.' ... I rent a room, that's really about it. ... There is no theocracy that I'm a part of." He has also declined to comment on author Jeff Sharlet's claim that he is "very involved" in the religious aspect of the Family and has mentored other members.

"But here's the rub," Maddow explained. "Everyone who has been living at C Street, including Bart Stupak, has been getting a sweetheart deal. ... These are rooms in this really swanky town house that come with meals, they come with maid service ... How much do you think that's worth on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., just blocks away from the Capitol building? How about $600 a month?"..........

i'm not sure i understand this

does this mean cuccinelli invites people to beat the shite out of 'the' gays? does this mean 'the' gays don't GET EQUAL RIGHTS WHICH EACH AND EVERY SINGLE ONE OF US IS ENTITLED TO?

next thing ya know, the NEGROS and the lil' WOMEN won't be allowed equal rights either....

if i were one of the good citizens of the commonwealth of virginia, i'd sure demand equal rights for ALL. please let your voices be heard

Virginia attorney general to colleges: End gay protections

Washington Post Staff Writer
RICHMOND -- Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli II has urged the state's public colleges and universities to rescind policies that ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, arguing in a letter sent to each school that their boards of visitors had no legal authority to adopt such statements.

In his most aggressive initiative on conservative social issues since taking office in January, Cuccinelli (R) wrote in the letter sent Thursday that only the General Assembly can extend legal protections to gay state employees, students and others -- a move the legislature has repeatedly declined to take as recently as this week.

The letter demonstrates an increasing split in the region's policies on issues related to sexual orientation. It comes in the same week that the District began issuing marriage licenses for gay couples and a week after Maryland's attorney general announced that his state will recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states.,.............

Apparently your boyfriend is freaked out by your NuvaRing and doesn’t understand how the Pill works. And apparently unmarried ladies and gents across America are similarly confused! (PDF)

Here are some very frightening statistics:

-Among people who are in sexually active relationships and want to prevent pregnancy, 19% use no contraception at all. 24% use contraception inconsistently.

-42% of men and 40% of women believe that your chances of getting pregnant within one year while on the birth control pill are 50% or greater (the pill is actually about 92% effective with typical use).

-18% of men believe you can reduce the risk of pregnancy if you have sex standing up..........

what can i say?

(other than, takes one to KNOW one)


how cool is this?

Thomas Dolby and ETHEL: Music for the morning after

Face it, music friends: plenty of times you come home from a club or theater convinced you've seen an amazing performance. The morning after, as evidence of the concert leaks onto the Interwebs, you are disappointed to learn that what you see and hear doesn't match what you experienced in the moment. It doesn't mean the moment was any less transcendent; it just means that the transcendence didn't last. That makes it even more welcome that rare time when the morning after is as great as the night before.

People go to TED for many reasons: the quality of the content, the quality of the networking, the ability to say "I went to TED." (Mark has written about some of this year's standouts, among them talks by Bill Gates and Temple Grandin.) I go, in part, for the music. For many years, Thomas Dolby has been the conference's music director, booking an eclectic, surprising, yet entirely appropriate cast and also leading a house band (a new one every year) to kick off each of the conference's dozen or so sessions. This year Dolby chose the rogue string quartet ETHEL as his accompanists, and they were standouts through the event, playing a wide variety of covers (including Led Zeppelin, New Order, Tracy Chapman, and The Verve), backing other performers (David Byrne, Andrew Bird, Jake Shimabukuro), and showing up in at least one club and one hotel lobby for semiplanned jams............

Marine reportedly killed by opium-fueled private contractors
By John Byrne

Pentagon originally said Marine killed in combat

The Pentagon confirmed late Tuesday that it is investigating the death of a 24-year-old Indiana Marine after he was shot to death in Afghanistan, allegedly by several US-paid private security contractors.

The contractors, according to a fellow Marine in Afghanistan who communicated with an investigative reporter in Chicago, were Afghanis who were found with "copious amounts of opium" and had been paid by the United States as guards.

"He was killed by American Hired Local National Contractors that were high on opium the morning of the 19th," the ABC reporter quotes a friend and fellow colleague of Lance Corporal Joshua Birchfield as saying in an email message.

Lance Corporal Joshua Birchfield was killed after being shot in the head Feb. 19. The Department of Defense originally reported that he died of "small arms fire" while in combat...............

yup, having people

strapped at bars and at starbucks is a DAMN FINE idea!

believe me, if someone can shoot two people guarding the pentagon (grazing wounds but they were shot at mind you) i sure as shite am NOT going to be sitting next to a 'citizen' at a public coffee house or on a bar stool who has a piece at his or her side.

and please don't tell me you'd use the gun to defend yourself. if NO ONE (but military and police) had guns we all wouldn't feel the NEED to pack heat to 'defend' ourselves
Shooting at Pentagon entrance eaves 2 police officers hurt, lone gunman dead
By Allison Klein, Clarence Williams and Martin Weil

An armed man walked up to an entrance to the Pentagon on Thursday evening, approached two police officers, calmly pulled a gun from his coat pocket and opened fire, wounding the officers before they shot him. The suspect later died, the Associated Press reported early Friday.

There was no immediate explanation for the attack at a doorway to the nation's defense headquarters, one of the busiest, most prominent and closely guarded buildings in the Washington area.

The wounds to the two officers did not appear serious. Richard S. Keevill, chief of the force that guards the Pentagon, described them as grazing wounds....................

i'm NOT sayin', but i'm just sayin'...............

(IF he was there) i'm SURE he was there just to observe how the sodomites drink and fornicate and make jesus weep. i'm SURE of it!

NOTE: the manager of the club said she didn't see him there (doesn't mean he was or wasn't)

now i'm not saying he's gay, straight, trans, bi, lesbian or a(sexual that is). i don't care. normally i wouldn't post about someone who was allegedly in a gay bar (it's NOT news). i WILL post it if a state senator with a record for treating 'the' gays like shite is arrested after ALLEGEDLY coming out of a gay bar, driving drunk (allegedly) with another man (allegedly) in the car. HELL YES i will

Sources: Family Values GOPer Was At Gay Club Before Drunk Driving Arrest

A California Republican family values legislator who was arrested early Wednesday morning for drunk driving had recently left a gay club, sources tell a local news channel.

State senator Roy Ashburn was pulled over by the California Highway Patrol on Wednesday at 2am in Sacramento, after police saw the car he was driving swerving erratically. An unidentified male passenger was in the car with Ashburn.

The sources told CBS13 that Ashburn, a father of four, had that night been at Faces, which touts itself as "Sacramento's premier GLBTI Nightclub since 1985."

Ashburn was arrested and charged with driving under the influence, and driving with a blood alcohol level higher than .08 percent -- both misdemeanors. He was released from jail on $1400 bond...........

OK Go's Rube Goldberg music video

i happened to find more info on the video over at dangerous minds

this is the very sad story or ruchika girotra

her name could easily have been sally or bat-tziyon or maria or bolanile or Раиса

whatever. it doesn't matter what her name is. it matters this happens EVERYWHERE. it matters blame is placed on victims (and in many cases just like this one, their families). it is caused by poor people and rich people. it is as i said EVERYWHERE

now ruchika has a little bit of justice. not enough mind you, but the tides are turning. each and every one of us must NOT let this happen here or anywhere

Abuse Case Rouses India’s Middle Class

PANCHKULA, India — She was a gifted 14-year-old tennis player who idolized Steffi Graf and hoped to turn pro. He was a senior police official and president of the state lawn tennis club. He lured her to his office with a promise of special coaching that could make her tennis dreams come true, then groped her.

This encounter set in motion a saga that has taken almost 20 years to unfold. The family of the girl, Ruchika Girotra, threatened to press charges. Shambhu Pratap Singh Rathore, a senior officer in the Haryana State Police, then waged a campaign of harassment and intimidation against Ruchika so severe that she eventually committed suicide. Her brother, Ashu, was falsely accused of stealing cars, and said he had been beaten and tortured in custody.

All the while Mr. Rathore, a flamboyant, mustachioed presence with deep ties to many of the state’s top politicians, rose through the ranks, retiring in 2002 as a state police chief.

Ruchika Girotra’s ordeal is hardly unique. Girls are molested all the time in India; powerful officials often abuse their office to avoid criminal prosecution; sclerotic courts are painfully slow and often corrupt.............

faux 'news'

i have an idea

i'm sure there are PLENTY of worth charities that do the same things the catholic church does for dc (and most likely they do it the same OR BETTER). so don't let the catholic church THREATEN you dc by saying THEY will cancel their contracts with you (c'mon now, that is VERY unlikely). KICK THEIR asses to the curb. give the 22 million to organizations who do the same jobs BUT AREN'T HOMOPHOBIC ASSHOLES (who have a HISTORY in the entire world, not just in the us of burying case upon case upon case of pedophilia). and guess what? your jesus is WEEPING because he knows you're soul-less hypocrites.

Same-sex marriage leads Catholic Charities to adjust benefits
Employees at Catholic Charities were told Monday that the social services organization is changing its health coverage to avoid offering benefits to same-sex partners of its workers -- the latest fallout from a bitter debate between District officials trying to legalize same-sex marriage and the Catholic Archdiocese of Washington.

Starting Tuesday, Catholic Charities will not offer benefits to spouses of new employees or to spouses of current employees who are not already enrolled in the plan. A letter describing the change in health benefits was e-mailed to employees Monday, two days before same-sex marriage will become legal in the District.

"We looked at all the options and implications," said the charity's president, Edward J. Orzechowski. "This allows us to continue providing services, comply with the city's new requirements and remain faithful to the church's teaching.".............

hey kentucky he just gave the finger to

2000 of YOUR working citizens (well before today they were working that is)

Sen. Bunning is Angry: 'This Is a Senators Only Elevator!'

ABC's Jonathan Karl and Z. Byron Wolf report from Washington:

An angry Senator Jim Bunning refused to answer questions from ABC News about his decision to block a bill extending unemployment benefits.

The exchange took place as Senator Bunning was getting into an elevator in the Hart Senate Office Building.

“Excuse me! This is a Senators only elevator!” Bunning thundered.

I tried again to ask his reasons for blocking the bill, Bunning said he already explained his reasons last Thursday, when he said he wanted the $10 billion cost of the bill to be paid for, rather than simply adding to the national debt.

“Excuse me!” he yelled. “I’ve got to go to the floor!” ..............


Senator Bunning was even more expressive before the cameras arrived, using a little sign language.

When Senate producer Z. Byron Wolf spotted Bunning exiting his office, Bunning said, “I’m not talking to anybody.” When Wolf asked him to stay and talk to our cameras, Bunning walked toward the elevator and shot the middle finger over his head..........

well they've done it AGAIN

stolen my debit card NUMBER (not the card mind you, the number). i had a message on my machine when i came home today from visa fraud prevention. i figured it was going to be all ok, because i DID order something online and it was in pounds sterling (their profilers are some great skilled people the foreign charge was knitting related and i think they knew I DID THAT ONE). well that was NOT the charge they were calling about. they called about some measly assed $37.00 charge to a leasing company (the peeps that steal the cards ALWAYS do a test charge for a piddly amount. i've learned that from EXPERIENCE). experience, a rose is a rose? yes EXPERIENCE. i am THE QUEEN of having my debit card number stolen. once it was stolen three times in a row. no sooner would i get my replacement card than the new number was stolen. i don't use my card at 'shady' atm machines. i do my bill paying on secure computers, but somehow it keeps getting ripped off. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

so then i called webster bank to have them issue me a new card. they will but it takes a week. i can go get a temporary card, but i can't pay bills with the temp.

anyway, thanks to visa and thanks to webster for being so vigilant and to the thieves, EFF YOU

The Difference Between Male and Female Vegetarians: Self-Sufficiency!

Christopher R. noticed that the sibling sites www.youngwomenshealth.org and www.youngmenshealthsite.org had nearly identical advice for being vegetarian or vegan, except for one small detail. He writes:

Both pages are generally the same (pretty much word for word), except for the last section on convincing parents to let you be vegetarian. The female version includes the suggestion “read vegetarian cookbooks or nutritional information with your parents and offer to help with the shopping and cooking,” as well as an extra article titled “What are some healthy meals that I can prepare?” I guess the difference between male and female vegetarians is their ability to cook and shop..............

DAMN awesome!
