School teaches sex-ed lesson from Baptist website: Women are ‘cheap prostitutes,’ gays going to hell

Published

on

A New Zealand high school has come under fire after it provided students with a conservative Christian handout that called women “cheap prostitutes” if they had sex outside of marriage, and warned that LGBT people would go to hell.

According to 3News, Papanui High School obtained the pamphlets from U.S.-based Bible Baptist Publications and provided them to 15-year-old students.

“Either you are married or you are not married,” the booklet states. “If you are not married, yet you have sexual relations, then you are a wicked fornicator.”

Other phrases in the “Safe Sex” handout warned students that “death and hell” were waiting for students who engaged in gay sex.

“A couple who lives together without marriage is a couple who has become habitual and irresponsible fornicators,” a version of the pamphlet on the company’s website opines. “He thinks she’s a fine lady, yet she’s nothing more than a cheap prostitute who allows herself to be used for his sexual gratification in exchange for what seems to be a stable and secure home life. This make-believe game may fool people, but it doesn’t fool God. This is a sin, and it will be punished!”

“The only SAFE sex is MARRIED sex between a man and a woman. Any other form of sex is SINFUL sex. Death and Hell await those who continue in such wickedness.”

Principal Jeff Smith told the New Zealand Herald that concerns about the handout had been “an unfortunate misunderstanding” because the school was to make sure students were “informed” when it came to making decisions.

But Labour education spokesperson Chris Hipkins called on the materials to be pulled from the classroom.

“It’s fine for schools to be using stuff to provoke kids into thinking but there’s a fine line between provoking critical thought and something that’s offensive,” he observed. “That, I think, crosses the line.”

Secular Education Network coordinator Peter Harrison argued that the school may have also been violating the New Zealand Bill of Rights and the country’s Human Rights Act.

“I think they should be examined in a social studies context, probably as something that we should be fighting against, because that kind of thing is intolerant,” he said.

In the future, Smith said that the school would continue using the handout, but teachers would make an effort to put it in context as one of many views on sexuality.

Cincinnati sheriff deputies replace American flag at the Justice Center with ‘thin-blue-line’ flag

Published

on

Cincinnati police were filmed replacing the American flag that hangs over the Justice Center in Ohio's third-largest city. They then replaced it with the thin-blue-line flag, that was created to advocate for law-enforcement during Black Lives Matter Protests.

During the Charlottesville, Virginia riots, right-wing and white supremacist activists carried the thin-blue-line flag along with the Confederate flag to speak out against Black Lives Matter.

While the flag may have been created in support of law enforcement, it has been adopted by white supremacists and taken on a darker meaning.

WATCH: DC protesters turn over ‘agitator’ to police — then the agitators try to start a fight with cops

Published

on

Protesters in Washington, D.C. were captured on video handing over an agitator to police, while other agitators in paintball tactical gear appeared to try and start fights with police.

Former FBI assistant director of counterintelligence, Frank Figliuzzi, revealed that his former colleagues and law enforcement he knows recognize that far-right agitators are attempting to start significant conflicts between police and protesters.

"There is a minimal presence of Antifa, but a far more disturbing presence of right-wing race-based hate groups, such as the Boogaloo Boys who think there will be a race-based civil war coming," he said on MSNBC.

Trump could use Antifa conspiracy theories to ‘investigate his political opponents’: Ex-FBI assistant director

Published

on

According to former FBI assistant director for counterintelligence Frank Figliuzzi, there are far more white supremacists and anti-government agitators infiltrating the peaceful Black Lives Matter protests than Antifa. He fears Trump will use Antifa as an excuse to investigate his political opponents.

Speaking to MSNBC on Sunday evening, Figliuzzi told host Brian Williams that his sources in law enforcement are telling him that President Donald Trump doesn't have his facts straight on Antifa.

"We're seeing components of legitimate frustrated protesters responding to Mr. Floyd's demise and others," explained Figliuzzi. "Then we are seeing people who are exploiting this for their own purposes, and some of them are more than just opportunistic criminals. Some of them are organized, and some of them have diverse agendas but are coming together to wreak havoc. And I think what we need to pay attention to here is what we have evidence of, what we don't have evidence of, and what we're hearing from the White House and the attorney general."
