Christian summer camp fires 18 year old counselor for being gay, because Jesus

Published

on

A Washington State 18-year old says the Christian summer camp he loves fired him as a counselor because he’s gay.

Jace Taylor tells Q13 Fox that Firs Camps & Retreats told him, “we don’t support homosexuality, and it’s against the Bible.”

Firs acknowledges the termination of Jace Taylor for his “sexuality.”

“When it became evident in the application process that [Taylor] did not personally align with our statements of faith (in particular, one regarding sexuality) we determined we could not use him in this role,” Firs Executive Director Tom Beaumont said in a statement, adding that Jace has worked at the camp before and is “well known and loved.”

Calling it a “quandary,” Beaumont says in “order to be consistent to our beliefs and our mission we felt compelled to pass on someone we truly liked.”

Jace Taylor sees it a bit differently.

“At first I wanted to bawl my eyes out because all of my life I’ve wanted to work as a Fir Creek camp counselor and make an impact in their lives like they did when I was younger,” Taylor said. “They made me feel loved, they made me feel accepted especially by God and Christ.”

“I am still in shock, this whole thing seems unreal,” Taylor adds. “This can happen, I hear stories about it all over the world; never thought it could happen to me.”

Flynn has had a difficult go in his court case, but information Flynn gave was helpful, according to the DOJ.

Kian is an Iranian-American businessman who was charged with conspiring to hide his lobbying work for Turkey without registering as a foreign agent for the Turkish government.

“It’s as bad as it looks”: Pelosi under fire for debt ceiling deal that hands GOP power to kneecap progressive agenda

Published

on

"It sets up a crisis of the first year of the next president's administration," said a former congressional staffer. "We're letting them light the fuse on another bomb and place it squarely in the middle of the next president's first year."

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi may have helped temporarily avert a looming fiscal crisis on Tuesday by striking a budget deal with the Trump administration, but progressives warned the agreement hands Republicans power to kneecap the next president's agenda by suspending the debt ceiling until after the 2020 elections.

FLASHBACK: Mueller makes GOP lawmaker look like an absolute fool during 2013 hearing

Published

on

While previewing former special counsel Robert Mueller's upcoming testimony before the House of Representatives, CNN on Tuesday played a clip from six years ago showing Mueller schooling Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), who tried to corner the then-FBI director about his agency's work on the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing.

During the hearing, Gohmert tried to get Mueller to explain why the FBI supposedly hadn't visited the mosque that was frequented by the Tsarnaev brothers, the two American citizens of Chechen descent who carried out the attack.

"Why did no one go to the mosque and say, who are these guys?" Gohmert asked. "Why was that not done?"
