Friend of Christian couple who vowed divorce over gay marriage brutally uninvites them from her wedding

Published

on

Calling it a “flippant, fit-of-pique publicity stunt,” an Australian woman brutally disinvited a Christian couple from her own non-gay wedding, after they claimed they would get divorced if gays were allowed to wed.

Writing at NewsAU.com,  Annie Hagar wrote that she and her fiance have known for Nick Jensen and his wife Sarah for over ten years, attending their wedding although with different partners at the time. While she had previously invited the Christian couple to her upcoming wedding, his “publicity stunt” announcement caused her to change her mind, particularly when Jensen texted her fiance afterward asking him if they were still invited.

After wavering a bit, Hagar and her partner decided to teach their high school friend a lesson, with Hagar writing, “My fiance and I have decided the best thing to do is to make sure Nick understands how little he and his twisted world view matters. Couples all over the world of mixed race, mixed religion and now, at least in some countries, the same sex, enjoy a married life their forebears could not have dreamt would one day happen — and Nick and Sarah’s sham divorce will have zero impact on their lives. None.”

As to the “sham divorce,” Hagar delivered a devastating beat-down on Nick Jensen’s “crappy googling” skills, pointing out that getting a divorce in Australia isn’t as easy as jumping “back over their broomstick.”

“Google ‘divorce in Australia’, and in three clicks you’ll know that to apply for divorce you have to prove that you have been separated for 12 months, and there is no reasonable likelihood of resuming married life. While you can live under the same roof and still be considered ‘separated’, you need to provide evidence that married life has broken down irreparably,” she wrote. “Given that Nick and Sarah have as publicly as possible said they’re going to still refer to each other as ‘husband’ and ‘wife’, are going to try to have more children together and that for all intents and purposes, their lives will continue unchanged as a de facto couple, I’m pretty confident they have zero chance of getting a divorce.”

Then Hagar dropped the hammer, writing, ” I don’t want you anywhere near my wedding. You and your views are not welcome, because you’re right — the institution we’re marrying into isn’t the same one you think you’re in.”

The few police willing to join in solidarity with protesters

Published

on

Reports of the protests across the country are focusing on the violence, clashes and property damage caused by a small few rather than the peaceful protest of those rallying against injustice and the police standing in solidarity with them.

A few captured positive moments of cities where officers support the protests and believe Black lives do actually matter.

There were moments of protesters fist-bumping police, hugs with police, and in one incident in New York City over the weekend, one officer was separated from his unit. Protesters surrounded him with locked arms to protect him from those being violent. In Miami, Florida and Seattle, Washington, police joined protesters in kneeling.

Trump shows all the signs of being ‘rattled’ now that the White House is under siege from protesters: columnist

Published

on

In a column for the Atlantic, longtime political observer Peter Nicholas stated that Donald Trump is showing all the signs of a scared man as massive protests have broken out across the country over the murder of George Floyd at the hands of four former Minneapolis cops -- and angry Americans are taking their case all the way up to the White House gates.

As Nicholas wrote, "Presidents live within a protective cocoon built and continually fortified for one purpose: keeping them alive. But inside the White House compound these days, Donald Trump seems rattled by what’s transpiring outside the windows of his historic residence."

According to the man -- identified as Daniel and who was wearing a COVID-19 mask and a New York Yankees hat -- his brother was also murdered by police and the cops walked free.

"You've been marching all day," Hunter began. "Look, I have two questions for you: what was it like watching the U.S. this week from London? Does it resonate?
