Oklahoma City LGBTQ advocacy center ‘won’t be intimidated’ after their office was shot up

Published

on

Over the weekend, the office of an Oklahoma City LGBTQ advocacy group was shot at five times while no one was there. The office’s weatherproof windows received damage, and one shattered.

According to NBC News, the suspected anti-LGBTQ vandalism at the offices of Freedom Oklahoma are neither a first for gay and trans advocates in the state, nor are they the first time the group has experienced threatening behavior.

Troy Stevenson, Freedom Oklahoma’s executive director, said he received death threats after his group’s work on a case in Hitchcock, Oklahoma, where a gay couple’s house was burned down and their family was ran out of town.

“It was a gruff voice, calling and saying ‘I’m going to kill you,’” Stevenson said of the calls he got. “I would block the number, and they would call back a couple days later, the same voice at 7 a.m. on my personal cell.”

In March, the Tulsa office of Oklahomans for Equality were also shot at by an early morning shooter, which lead Stevenson to believe the attack on his organization might also be anti-LGBTQ.

“We’re obviously going to take extra security precautions,” Stevenson said. “But we won’t be intimidated. It’s part of the nature of what we do.”

Rudy Giuliani’s devotion has escorted Trump straight to impeachment

"Step by step, [Rudy Giuliani] has escorted President Trump to the brink of impeachment," The New York Times said in a piece following the president's top lawyer and his impact on the scandals facing the 45th president.

Two associates of Giuliani's have already been indicted, Giuliani is under criminal investigation from federal prosecutors, and he was never graced with a top position in the Trump government.

"The separate troubles he has gotten his client and himself into are products of the uniquely powerful position he has fashioned, a hybrid of unpaid personal counsel to the president and for-profit peddler of access and advice," The Times said Sunday.

Trump supporters lose their minds when church shows Nativity scene in immigrant cages

Published

MAGA supporters are losing their minds after a photo of the Nativity scene at Claremont United Methodist Church was posted to Facebook.

The scene depicts Mary, Joseph, and the baby Jesus separated and put in their own cages, a reference to the families separated at the U.S.-Mexico border. Inside the church, the family is shown as reunited.

Senior minister Karen Clark Ristine shared the image on Facebook with the message hoping that everyone in the United States could see the photo and read the story for Christmas.

"The theological statement posted with the nativity: In a time in our country when refugee families seek asylum at our borders and are unwillingly separated from one another, we consider the most well-known refugee family in the world," she wrote. "Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, the Holy Family. Shortly after the birth of Jesus, Joseph and Mary were forced to flee with their young son from Nazareth to Egypt to escape King Herod, a tyrant. They feared persecution and death."

Columnist nails Republicans for only caring about Hunter Biden now that his father is running for president

Published

One of the critical questions that must be answered by Republicans, according to one Washington Post columnist, is why they didn't care about Hunter Biden's position at Burisma for so many years.

In a Sunday piece, James Downie asked why Republicans didn't do anything about Hunter Biden five years ago when it was first revealed that vice president's son was on the board of a Ukraine energy company. The House and the Senate were being run by Republicans until this year. They haven't had problems with other partisan investigations against high-profile leaders. There were ten investigations into the Benghazi attacks, three hearings, 29 witnesses, and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton testified for 11 hours. Yet, it was only after Joe Biden announced he was running against President Donald Trump that Republicans discovered an issue.
