Jehovah’s Witnesses enraged the internet with its latest video brainwashing children against their same-sex parents. So, it isn’t unreasonable that a Dutch reporter would attend their international convention and ask questions about it. Once they realized he was making fun of things, he was kicked out, according to Patheos.
Despite being an “open” event, the POWNed journalist was shown the door after asking event spokesperson Herman Maijer if homosexuals were welcome to attend.
“Sure, sure, no problem” a rough translation of what Maijer said when asked if anyone could attend. “In theory, everyone is warmly invited.” In practice, it might be something else. “We have sympathy for all kinds of people, homosexuals included.” He explained that the objections the church has are with the “behavior” of homosexuals and he believes they should change who they are. “There seems to be a possibility that someone can do what’s necessary to conquer those feelings.”
The reporter walked around interviewing others who talked about the video and LGBT people saying that it isn’t what God intended and against God. One young man rationalized, “Because you give yourself to God, you can control yourself.”
An older gentleman got a little graphic when thinking about homosexual sex, “Now, penetrating someone, to express it very crudely… No! There will be a certain number born with this anomaly, but that doesn’t mean you have to practice it.
Not long into the interviews, the film crew was told they were generating turmoil and the “implied invitation is hereby revoked. So, you are no longer welcome here,” a Jehovah’s Witnesses official said.

‘Absolute immunity:’ Kayleigh McEnany claims Trump has monarch-like powers despite Supreme Court ruling
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany on Thursday said that President Donald Trump continues to believe that he has "absolute immunity" from prosecution despite a Supreme Court ruling that said otherwise.
At a White House briefing, McEnany argued that a high court ruling which gives prosecutors the right to subpoena Trump's financial records is actually a "win for the president."
"The president was making general point about deference and on the principal of absolute immunity," she explained. "He believes there should have been more deference [to him by the court]."
Trump’s is appealing to an electorate that is ‘dissolving before his eyes’: columnist
Writing in The Atlantic this Thursday, Ronald Brownstein says that Donald Trump is running for reelection for an America that "no longer exists."
"Trump in recent weeks has repeatedly reprised two of Richard Nixon’s most memorable rallying cries, promising to deliver 'law and order' for the 'silent majority,'" Brownstein writes. "But in almost every meaningful way, America today is a radically different country than it was when Nixon rode those arguments to win the presidency in 1968 amid widespread anti-war protests, massive civil unrest following the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., white flight from major cities, and rising crime rates. Trump’s attempt to emulate that strategy may only prove how much the country has changed since it succeeded."
Trump is a friendless ‘psychopath’ who now sees Kavanaugh and Gorsuch as enemies: Art of the Deal ghostwriter
Brett Kavanaugh and Neil Gorsuch, who were nominated by Donald Trump, voted with the majority on Thursday against the president. Tony Schwartz, the ghostwriter behind “Trump: The Art of the Deal,” says that the president now views the two Supreme Court justices as his enemies.
“The psychopathy is why he does what he does,” Schwartz told CNN. “He has no conscience and so breaking the law for him is no big deal.”
The Supreme Court rejected claims by Trump's attorneys that the president enjoyed absolute immunity, but the rulings may still allow him to keep his financial records secret until after the November election.
