Christians outraged after Ohio high schooler suspended for trying to ‘heal’ gay students with Bible verses

Published

A Christian news website is outraged after a high schooler in Ohio was given a suspension for posting Bible verses around her school in the belief that they would “heal” some of her LGBTQ peers>

According to Faithwire, Gabby Helsinger was suspended by  Lebanon High School principal Scott Butler over the verses she shared in response to rainbow flags flown by her school’s Gay-Straight Alliance (GSA) club.

In a video posted to Facebook by her mother, the teen said she was called in after responding to the GSA while at the same time saying she had no idea what the club was.

“On Thursday when I got to school, I see that there were pride flags, posters around my school,” Helsinger explained in the video, adding, “And I felt the need to write down some Bible verses so I could put them around my school. And I wrote them down and I put them around the lockers, the walls.”

According to the teen, she later saw school officials taking them down.

“The next day, I got called to the office and there is a letter that says that I have an ISS, which is an in-school suspension, and the reason why I have it is because ‘abuse of others, disrespect, rudeness’ because I put Bible verses up ‘targeting the GSA organization,’” she continued. “I did not know what the GSA organization was or meant.”

She then accused the school of being anti-Christian, and said she only wanted to share the “word of God” with gay students whom she feels are in need of “help.”

“Seeing that there [were] people in my school that needed help … ,” she confessed. “They don’t need to be living in the confusion of wondering if they should be gay, bi, lesbian, trans — anything like that. And I know that God is the only way that they can be healed by that, and that’s why I did it. I was not targeting any kind of organization.”

According to Faithwire, “The question that remains, then, is why Gabby received the suspension to begin with. If the student’s testimony stands, and she was not ‘targeting the GSA organization’ as Principal Scott Butler allegedly claimed, then it appears her only offense was not receiving prior approval to post the verses, which is a far cry from the accusations of ‘abuse’ toward other students.”

“The concept of same-sex ‘marriage’ and transgenderism’s denial of God-given biological sex are in direct conflict with Scripture,” the piece editorialized. “But if a school claims to allow for these incompatible belief systems to coexist with equal protections, people are bound to get offended every now and then. That is the price of such freedom of expression.”

‘Bond is dead’: White dudes flip out over casting of a black woman as next Agent 007

Published

on

On Monday, the Daily Beast reported that the new 007 -- the special agent in the James Bond series -- will be portrayed by the black actress Lashana Lynch.

The announcement set off predictably racist and sexist reactions.

Perhaps the most prominent right-winger to voice his displeasure was Ben Shapiro, who complained that it didn't make sense for Bond to be a woman because of the character's signature seduction moves.

"Bond is about the guns and the girls," Shapiro said, noting that a woman in a seductive role was not realistic.

Published

on

Federal investigators have been able to “dramatically expand” their investigation into financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein as prosecutors bring sex trafficking charges against him, Assistant U.S. Attorney Alex Rossmiller said in court on Monday.

The government revealed the expansion of the case at the day’s bail hearing. In searching the defendant’s house, investigators found an old passport with Epstein picture and a fake name that listed Saudi Arabia as the location of his residence, the prosecutor said.

The judge was surprised at this revelation, NBC News reported, asking the attorney, “Say again?”

Will Hurd becomes first GOP lawmaker to condemn Trump’s ‘racist and xenophobic’ attacks on Dems

Published

on

Rep. Will Hurd (R-TX) on Monday became the first Republican lawmaker to unequivocally condemn President Donald Trump's racist attacks against four Democratic lawmakers.

When asked by CNN's Christiane Amanpour about Trump's weekend tweets, in which he told Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), Ayanna Pressley (D-MA) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) to “go back” to their countries despite the fact that all four are American citizens, Hurd did not hold back on repudiating the president's statements.

"Those tweets are racist, and xenophobic," he said. "They’re also inaccurate. The four women he’s referring to are actually citizens of the United States."
