Sweet justice: Anti-gay Pastor who celebrated Orlando shootings is getting booted from his building

Published

on

Baptist pastor Roger Jimenez of the California-based Verity Baptist Church drew widespread condemnation when he praised Omar Mateen’s terror attack on a gay Orlando nightclub — and now he’s getting some much-deserved comeuppance.

Local news station WMAZ 13 reports that Harsch Investment Properties, the company that owns the building where Jimenez’s church now resides, says that it will not renew the church’s lease and is even asking Jimenez to consider moving immediately.

“We have many places of worship and other religious organizations in the properties we manage,” the company said in a press release, which also noted that the company will not tolerate “tenants who advocate hatred and the taking of innocent lives.”

Sadly, the lease doesn’t expire until next March, so Jimenez and his church might be able to stay in the building for several more months. That said, Harsch Investment Properties has made it very clear that Verity Baptist Church is not welcome on their property.

In case you don’t recall, Jimenez said during his sermon at the church in the wake of the Orlando shooting:

Are you sad that 50 pedophiles were killed today? I think Orlando, Florida, is a little safer tonight. The tragedy is that more of them didn’t die. The tragedy is I’m kind of upset he didn’t finish the job.

Before approving the rules, the Senate voted down several amendments proposed by Democrats seeking to subpoena witnesses and documents from the White House and State Department.

These are the next phases in Trump's impeachment trial, just the third of a president in US history:

Chief Justice Roberts admonishes lawyers at Senate impeachment trial

Published

on

Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court John Roberts made his first major intervention in President Donald Trump's impeachment trial shortly before 1 a.m. Wednesday morning.

After House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) finished his closing arguments on why former National Security Advisor John Bolton should testify, the White House team went on the attack. Yelling and demanding apologies, the president's team was more animated than they'd been all night. Roberts then admonished the House and White House on their language.

Claiming the Senate is the "world's greatest deliberative body" -- despite what he had witnessed during 12 hours of the impeachment trial -- Roberts complained about language that was "not conducive to civil discourse."

White House lawyers begin yelling at Democrats during late-night impeachment trial — after Trump starts tweeting

Published

on

President Donald Trump woke up and began tweeting around midnight EST during the Senate impeachment trial over the amendments over the rules. That's when a noticeable thing changed on the Senate floor: Trump's team started yelling.

Nearing 1 a.m. EST Tuesday morning while the president was tweeting about impeachment, his team began attacking Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) personally. They called him a liar and accused him of attacking the president and demanded an apology. After nearly 12 hours this was the first time the White House got even remotely animated after a dull defense of the president.
