Missouri Woman Makes History As First Openly Gay Miss America Contestant | KTLA

TRUTHBOMBS: Yes, let us all celebrate with glee and pomp as our nation descends deeper into the fiery pit of hell. Wake up and say something people.

Smiling as she sits in a float at St. Louis’ annual pride parade,Erin O’Flaherty gleams with a crown atop her head, a prize she clinched after being crowned Miss Missouri last month.For O’Flaherty, being a part of the event had personal significance, as she is the first openly gay Miss America contestant in the pageant’s 95-year history.Her experience in the run-up to this September’s Miss America pageant, she said, has been an atmosphere that is nothing short of inclusive.“The Miss America organization has done a great job of wrapping their arms around me,” O’Flaherty, 23, told CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield. “Everyone who I’ve come into contact with has been nothing but supportive.”She added that she has never encountered any problems with fellow contestants, and that everyone has become lifelong friends, “bonding through the process.”O’Flaherty has previously voiced concern over the lack of LGBT representation in the public sphere, and her personal platform issue for this year’s competition will be suicide prevention, an issue both inside and outside her community.While competing in the pageant, O’Flaherty said, she wants to use the national stage to foster a greater conversation about suicide.Working with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention and the Trevor Project, O’Flaherty said she hopes to be a trailblazer for ending the stigma that often surrounds suicide and mental illness.“I lost someone to suicide when I was 13,” O’Flaherty told Banfield. “It changed my life. I hope that by sharing my story I can inspire others to speak out on their experiences, because suicide is a subject that is often taboo.”

Majority of Americans Think Euthanasia Should Be Legal, Poll Finds

TRUTHBOMBS: This is what happens when a society values people based on what that person can do instead of being the image-bearer of God.

Should a doctor be allowed to end a patient’s life by painless means if the patient requests it? In the 1940s and 1950s, most Americans thought the practice should be illegal, but now 69 percent say it should be legal, according to a new study.As many as 69 percent in the U.S. say physicians should be allowed to end patients’ lives by painless means, and 51 percent say they would consider ending their own lives if they personally had a disease that could not be cured and they were living in severe pain, a new Values and Beliefs poll by Gallup found.”When a person has a disease that cannot be cured, do you think doctors should be allowed by law to end the patient’s life by some painless means if the patient and his or her family request it?” Gallup asked this question on telephone interviews conducted May 4-8, with a random sample of 1,025 adults, aged 18 and older, living in all 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia.Gallup also asked if doctor-assisted suicide is morally acceptable or morally wrong. A slight majority, or 53 percent, said the practice is morally acceptable.In 2005, 59 percent said euthanasia is morally acceptable, perhaps due to the Terri Schiavo controversy at the time.Schiavo was in an irreversible persistent vegetative state after suffering a cardiac arrest in 1990. In 1998, her husband argued in court that Schiavo would not have wanted to prolong her life with any artificial support without hope of recovery, and elected to remove her feeding tube. Her parents, on the other hand, argued in favor of continuing artificial nutrition and hydration and challenged Schiavo’s medical diagnosis. Schiavo’s feeding tube was removed five years later.

Swedish music festivals hit by reports of rapes by ‘migrants’

TRUTHBOMBS: No it couldn’t be! [sarcasm] Not more violent acts committed by the multiple perpetrators who ascribe to the Islamic faith. I am starting to think that Islam teaches this kind of behavior. Oh Wait:      Qur’an 23:1-6—The Believers must (eventually) win through—those who humble themselves in their prayers; who avoid vain talk; who are active in deeds of charity; who abstain from sex, except with those joined to them in the marriage bond, or (the captives) whom their right hands possess—for (in their case) they are free from blame.

Qur’an 70:22-30—Not so those devoted to Prayer—those who remain steadfast to their prayer; and those in whose wealth is a recognized right for the (needy) who asks and him who is prevented (for some reason from asking); and those who hold to the truth of the Day Of Judgement; and those who fear the displeasure of their Lord—for their Lord’s displeasure is the opposite of Peace and Tranquility—and those who guard their chastity, except with their wives and the (captives) whom their right hands possess—for (then) they are not to be blamed.

Notice that Allah commands Muslims to abstain from sex, except with their wives and with “those whom their right hands possess.” Allah gave the same sexual rights to Muhammad:

Qur’an 33:50—O Prophet! surely We have made lawful to you your wives whom you have given their dowries, and those whom your right hand possesses out of those whom Allah has given to you as prisoners of war …

The Muslim practice of having sex with captured women is reported often in the Hadith, where we learn that Muhammad’s only objection to sex with captives was his condemnation of birth control.

Sahih Muslim 3371—We went out with Allah’s Messenger on the expedition to the Bi’l-Mustaliq and took captive some excellent Arab women; and we desired them, for we were suffering from the absence of our wives, (but at the same time) we also desired ransom for them. So we decided to have sexual intercourse with them but by observing azl (withdrawing the male sexual organ before emission of semen to avoid conception). But we said: We are doing an act whereas Allah’s Messenger is amongst us; why not ask him? So we asked Allah’s Messenger, and he said: It does not matter if you do not do it, for every soul that is to be born up to the Day of Resurrection will be born.

Sahih al-Bukhari 4138—We went out with Allah’s Apostle for the invasion of Bun Al-Mustaliq and we received captives from among the Arab captives and we desired women and celibacy became hard on us and we loved to do coitus interruptus [same as “azl” above]. So when we intended to do coitus interruptus, we said: “How can we do coitus interruptus before asking Allah’s Apostle who is present among us? We asked (him) about it and he said: “It is better for you not to do so, for if any soul till the Day of Resurrection is predestined to exist, it will exist.”

Sahih Muslim 3384—Jabir bin Abdullah reported that a person asked Allah’s Apostle saying: I have a slave-girl and I practice azl with her, whereupon Allah’s Messenger said: This cannot prevent that which Allah has decreed. The person then came (after some time) and said: Messenger of Allah, the slave-girl about whom I talked to you has conceived, whereupon Allah’s Messenger said: I am the servant of Allah and His Messenger.

Clearly, Muslims were taking full advantage of Muhammad’s teachings about female captives and slave girls. Nevertheless, Muslims eventually captured women along with their husbands, so they wondered if Allah would allow them to have sex with these married captives (since adultery is otherwise forbidden in Islam).

 

ARTICLE: Police in Sweden are investigating five reported rapes and nearly forty instances of groping at two music festivals over the weekend.

“Foreign young men“ were blamed by police for the attacks at one of the festivals and at least two unaccompanied migrant youths were under arrest.

Police recorded five reports of rapes and 12 of sexual molestation at Bravalla, Sweden’s biggest music festival, and 35 reports of sexual molestation at Putte i Parken, a free festival in Karlstad, where the youngest victim was just twelve years old.

Two of the seven young men suspected of mounting a campaign of aggressive groping at the second festival were unaccompanied refugee youth, reportedly living at a nearby accommodation centre.

Police are looking for a man who speaks “flawless Swedish” in connection with one of the five rapes at the first festival.

“The descriptions [of perpetrators] are diverse, with the one common denominator being that these are all young men,” police at the first festival reported on Sunday night.

The fresh reports of sex attacks involving young asylum seekers at Swedish music festivals triggered an angry response from activists, politicians and performers.

Pop singer Zara Larsson, known in the UK for her hit single with the rapper Tinie Tempa, said the perpetrators of the attack at Bravalla, where she performed, “deserved to burn in hell”.

“Damn you people who shamelessly rape a girl in public,” she wrote on Twitter.  “Damn you guys who make girls to feel unsafe when they go to the festival. I hate guys. Hate hate hate.”

The country pop singer Pernilla Andersson, who performed at Putte i Parken, called for the authorities to “fight hard” against those responsible.

“For an artist to go up on stage thinking that there might be a girl out there being molested or raped during the concert is just totally crazy,” she wrote in the Expressen newspaper on Monday.

An anonymous 15-year-old girl told Expressen newspaper that no fewer than five of her six friends had been sexually molested by “foreign youths” during the Karlstad event.

A man had come up behind her and started grinding against her, she said. A young man had groped one of her friends through her jeans.

Alexandra Larsson, 17, told MailOnline that she had not seen exactly who had assaulted her at Putte i Parken.

She stressed, however, that that the group of 18-19 year old boys standing behind her were “not from a Swedish background”.

“They were probably immigrants. I hate to say it. But it is the truth,” she said.

Muslim ‘refugees’ threaten Minnesota community with rape

TRUTHBOMBS: Way to go liberals. Once again you failed to make the world a safer place for your constituents, but instead are increasing violent crime (even though Obama will not report that crime on his national statistics).

A mob of up to 30 young Somali men paraded through one of Minneapolis’ more upscale neighborhoods last week, yelling disparaging comments and threats against homeowners. A female resident of the neighborhood, obviously shaken in a TV interview, related how she was screamed at by a Somali man who threatened to kidnap and rape her. […]

Noah’s ark of biblical proportions ready to open in Kentucky | Fox News

WILLIAMSTOWN, Ky. – A 510-foot-long, $100 million Noah’s ark attraction built by Christians who say the biblical story really happened is ready to open in Kentucky this week.Since its announcement in 2010, the ark project has rankled opponents who say the attraction will be detrimental to science education and shouldn’t have won state tax incentives.”I believe this is going to be one of the greatest Christian outreaches of this era in history,” said Ken Ham, president of Answers in Genesis, the ministry that built the ark.Ham said the massive ark, based on the tale of a man who got an end-of-the-world warning from God about a massive flood, will stand as proof that the stories of the Bible are true. The group invited media and thousands of supporters for a preview Tuesday, the first glimpse inside the giant, mostly wood structure.”People are going to come from all over the world,” Ham said to thousands of people in front of the ark.The ark will open to the public Thursday and Ham’s group has estimated it will draw 2 million visitors in its first year, putting it on par with some of the big-ticket attractions in nearby Cincinnati.The group says the ark is built based on dimensions in the Bible. Inside are museum-style exhibits: displays of Noah’s family along with rows of cages containing animal replicas, including dinosaurs.The group believes that God created everything about 6,000 years ago — man, dinosaur and everything else — so dinosaurs still would’ve been around at the time of Noah’s flood. Scientists say dinosaurs died out about 65 million years before man appeared.An ark opponent who leads an atheist group called the Tri-State Freethinkers said the religious theme park will be unlike any other in the nation because of its rejection of science.”Basically, this boat is a church raising scientifically illiterate children and lying to them about science,” said Jim Helton, who lives about a half-hour from the ark.Ham said the total cost of the ark surpassed $100 million, a far cry from a few years ago, when fundraising for the boat was sluggish and much larger theme park plans had to be scaled back.Millions of people first learned about plans for the ark during a debate on evolution between TV’s Bill Nye “the Science Guy” and Ham in early 2014.A few weeks later, a local bond issuance infused tens of millions of dollars into struggling fundraising efforts. And earlier this year, a federal judge ruled the ark could receive a Kentucky sales tax incentive worth up to $18 million while giving a strict religious test to its employees.Months later, the tax incentive ruling still has some opponents of the boat scratching their heads.”It’s a clear violation of separation of church and state. What they’re doing is utterly ridiculous and anywhere else, I don’t think it would be allowed,” Helton said.The court ruled in January that Kentucky officials could not impose requirements on the ark that were not applied to other applicants for the tax incentive, which rebates a portion of the sales tax collected by the ark. That cleared the way for the group to seek out only Christians to fill its labor force. New applicants will be required to sign a statement saying they’re Christian and “profess Christ as their savior.”Philip Steele, one of the thousands who got an early preview of the ark Tuesday, echoed Ham’s often repeated comment that the sales tax generated by the ark wouldn’t exist if the ark was never built.”I just don’t think they understand it,” Steele said of the ark’s critics. “They’ll be able to keep a portion of (the sales tax) to further their ministry, but so be it.”When Ham was asked about the tax incentive at the Tuesday event, he drew loud cheers when he proclaimed no taxpayer money was used to the build the ark.As much of a boon as the $18 million tax break would be, Bill Nye’s agreeing to debate Ham may have helped turn the tide of years of sluggish fundraising.Nye, a high-profile science advocate and former TV personality, debated Ham on evolution and drew a huge online audience. Nye later said he didn’t realize the attention it would draw and said he was “heartbroken and sickened for the Commonwealth of Kentucky.”The video of the debate posted by Answers in Genesis on YouTube has 5.4 million views.About three weeks after the debate, Ham announced that a bond offering from the city of Williamstown had raised $62 million for the project, and a few months later Answers in Genesis was breaking ground at the site of the ark.

Germany: Leftist pol raped by Muslim migrants, lied to police to avoid encouraging racism

TRUTHBOMBS: Remember, the truth fears no questions!!

A young left-wing German politician has admitted she lied to police about the racial background of three men who raped her in case it triggered reprisals against refugees in her country.Selin Gören, the national spokeswoman of the left-wing youth movement Solid, was attacked by three men in January in the city of Mannheim where she works as a refugee activist.The 24-year-old was ambushed late at night in a playground where she said she was forced to perform a sex act on her attackers.After the assault she went straight to the police – but she did not tell them the ethnic make-up of the men, that they were speaking Arabic or Farsi.Selin, aware of the backlash that migrants suffered after the events in Cologne on New Year’s Eve – when hundreds of women were sexually assaulted and robbed by marauding gangs of immigrant youths – instead said she was robbed and said her attackers spoke German.Now she has told Germany’s Spiegel magazine why she lied. After her initial interview at the end of January she returned to the police 12 hours later to tell them the real story.She said a friend talked her into going back to the police with the real story because another woman had been raped in the area – an accusation later retracted by the alleged victim.Selin, who has visited refugee camps in Iraq where she was shocked at the squalor people are living in, did not want to stoke ‘more hatred against migrants ín Germany.’To help her cope she wrote an open letter to a fictional refugee and posted it on Facebook. It read in part: ‘I am really sorry that your sexist and line-crossing treatment of me could help fuel aggressive racism.‘I’m going to scream… I will not stand by and watch, and it can happen that racists and concerned citizens name you as the problem. You’re not the problem. You’re usually a wonderful human being who deserves as much as any other to be safe and free.‘I will not stand by and watch and let it happen that racists and concerned citizens name you as the problem.’She now says people must never ‘twist the truth’ even if it is politically expedient to do so…

Three suicide attacks in Saudi Arabia extend global wave of bombings and a bloody week – The Washington Post

July 5 at 11:30 AM
Suicide bombers suspected of links to the Islamic State struck for the fourth time in less than a week, targeting three locations in Saudi Arabia in an extension of what appeared to be a coordinated campaign of worldwide bombings coinciding with the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.

The triple attacks Monday ranged across the kingdom: near a U.S. consulate in Jiddah, a mosque frequented by Shiite worshipers in an eastern district, and at a security center in one of Islam’s holiest sites, the historic city of Medina. The Saudi Interior Ministry told the state-run television station that four security guards died in the Medina attack and five were injured.

The attacks offered further evidence that in the two years since it declared the existence of its so-called caliphate, the Islamic State has developed the capacity to strike at will in diverse locations around the world.

If You Want the Government to Forgive Your Criminal Mistakes, Run for President – Hit & Run : Reason.com

We know today that the FBI, despite determining that Hillary Clinton had more than a hundred emails on her private server that had information that was classified at the time, and despite her publicly making claims otherwise, has decided that she should not face federal prosecution.The FBI determined that clearly seriously poor decisions were made here, describing the handling of classified information under Clinton’s administration as Secretary of State as “extremely careless.” But despite the violations of the law, the FBI determined no “intentional and willful mishandling” of classified information, and thus decided that an attempt to prosecute probably would not succeed.
