Catholic school students walk out in protest of gay vice principle's forced resignation:

http://www.komonews.com/news/local/Eastside-Catholic-students-protest-resignation-of-gay-official-236613461.html

Probably won't amount to anything, as private religious schools have virtually carte blanche to discriminate against their employees for any reason. But its beautiful to see so much support, showing that the school's anti-gay prejudice is not a universal principle held by their student body.

It is nice to see on a few levels.
1. That the students don't care if he's gay, and think it's wrong.
2. That the students care about there education.
3. I always find it hopeful when a group of people decides to stand up to the establishment.

Man appears constipated, subjected to narcotics investigation and medical torture.

http://reason.com/blog/2013/11/05/dont-appear-to-be-clenching-your-buttock

New Mexico police department pulls over a man for for failing to come to a complete stop at a stop sign. The man appear to be "clenching his buttocks", which prompts the police officer to get a warrant for a cavity search and drug investigation.

The man is taken to a nearby hospital which refuses to perform the search.

At this time, the warrant has expired, the cop should have released the suspect. Instead, the cop takes the man to another hospital where he is subjected to the following non-consentual procedures:

1) abdominal x-ray, twice
2) rectally probed by doctor, twice
3) given an enema and forced to defecate in front of doctors and police three times
4) sedated and given a colonoscopy, three times.

Quantity of drugs recovered: zilch.

The victim is suing police department, the hospital, and two doctors.

Thanks for nothing, War on Drugs.

Makes me ashamed of my country, Russia as well and really just ashamed of people's narrow views on things.

It's disheartening.

In a terrifying gesture to roll back human rights, India Supreme Court recriminalizes homosexuality:

http://www.washingtonpost.com/world/court-in-india-criminalizes-homosexuality/2013/12/11/ea7274a6-6227-11e3-a7b4-4a75ebc432ab_story.html

India’s Supreme Court overturned a historic lower court decision on homosexuality Wednesday, making consensual same-sex acts once again a crime in the world’s most populous democracy.

The court ruled that India’s colonial-era homosexuality law — which says that gay sex is “against the order of nature” and punishable by up to 10 years in prison — is constitutional. Changing it should be left up to the country’s Parliament, not the courts, the judges ruled.

Gas attack at Moscow gay club.

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/25/poison-gas-russia-gay-club_n_4337823.html

Only a week after two men opened fire outside of popular gay club Central Station in Moscow, Russia, the same club has become the subject of another attack -- this time involving a form of harmful gas.

On Nov. 23, assailants sprayed "some harmful gas" inside of the club, which contained roughly 500 patrons at the time. Employees immediately used a smoke removal machine to filter the gas from the club.

“Today is the fourth provocation against the club arranged by unknown persons," stated Andrey Leschinsky, the club's general director. "We believe that they are connected with the building owner. They are spraying the gas inside the club premises, thereby trying to express their extremist views against [the] LGBT community, which likes to visit our club."

Several attendees sought medical attention, though none reportedly went to the hospital.

"The President agrees that the minimum wage should be raised to $10.40 an hour but, unsurprisingly, Republicans oppose any increase. In this as in many other dimensions, the conservative mind is remarkably flexible. The minimum wage must not be increased, they say, lest employers lay off millions of low-wage workers. But record levels of CEO pay must not be tampered with because corporations need to attract top talent. The poor must have less if they are to be adequately motivated, but the rich must have more in order to ensure their maximum effort. Food stamps and unemployment insurance must be curtailed to prevent laziness among the needy, yet special tax loopholes that subsidize the wealthy (such as "carried interest" for private-equity and hedge-fund partners) must be retained. The 22 percent of American children now in poverty don't merit free school lunches or health care, but it is necessary and just that the richest 1 percent of children receive $10 million free of estate taxes."

Thanks /r/nottheonion. Environmentalism as explained by Concerned Women for America:

"What do you think of when you hear the term “environmentalism”? For most people, the word probably brings to mind images of harmless hippies out to curb pollution and encourage recycling. 

But the reality is much more sinister. What most people don’t realize is that environmentalism may very well be the most anti-human, anti-life agenda on the planet. Humans are seen as a blight on the world, population levels are considered far too high, and it is believed necessary to dramatically reduce the number of people globally through brutal methods. [ . . . ]

Christ warns His followers, “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves” (Matthew 7:15). Environmentalism is similarly deceptive, requiring us to employ spiritual discernment. Although it may seem outwardly attractive, underneath environmentalism’s glistening veneer of social justice is actually an incredibly evil set of values."
