Headlines

Like a good laxative. The shit is out. – dpo.st/29qr6Ps

  • Gordon Klingenschmitt lost his bid to become a CO state senator
  • Gave up his seat in the CO house to run for Senate
  • Lost his bid by losing the primary to Bob Gardner 61.7% to 38.2% (nice, wide margin)
  • Bob Gardner (another Air Force veteran) looks to be just as conservative as the douche-nozzle that he beat in the primary, but baby steps…

Slap on the wrist for murder – bit.ly/29ugJby

  • Followup from Episode 71: David Stephan and wife Collet Stephan who killed their son Ezekiel by not treating his menignitis, have been sentenced… barely.
  • If you’ll remember, they used naturopatic “remedies” and the boy died
  • Jury found them Guilty in April, but sentencing was just handed down.
  • First of all they only face a maximum of five year in prison, but they were actually sentenced to:
  • Father: four months in jail, mother: three months of house arrest
  • At least the judge said their three remaining kids will have to see a (real) doctor once a year and a public health nurse four times a year.

Catholic school can fund their own work – bit.ly/29i4bjD

  • Santa Ana City Council in California was considering giving $2.5 million to a Catholic high school to help them construct a new building and parking garage.
  • FFRF legal fellow Ryan Jane wrote a letter to town saying the following:

    “We are writing to object to the proposed grant to Mater Dei because distributing public money to a private religious school violates both the Federal Constitution and the California state constitution.

    The Establishment Clause of the First Amendment prohibits the government from supporting religious activities with public funds… The city of Santa Ana violates this principle when it funds the expansion of a private parochial school.”

  • Letter worked and now the city is no longer considering the grant

Board-Certified New York Psychiatrist Thinks “Demonic Possession” Can Be the Correct Diagnosis – bit.ly/29rsTAB

  • Richard Gallagher, a board-certified psychiatrist and a professor of clinical psychiatry at New York Medical College, has a book coming out that literally gives the devil his due. It’s about demonic possession, which Gallagher says is totally a real thing.
  • despite having trained at Yale and Columbia, and being, in his own words, “a man of science” as well as “a man of reason,” Gallagher became convinced

Christian Blogger: Christy Sheats Rightly Killed Her Daughters Because They Were Seeing Black Guys bit.ly/29fBn0P

  • Christy Sheats is the Texas mother who shot and killed both of her children (ages 22 and 17) before being gunned down by police.
  • narrative surrounding her includes the fact that she opposed any sort of gun regulation, saying on Facebook as recently as March that “It would be horribly tragic if my ability to protect myself or my family were to be taken away.”
  • Christian writer Jennifer Mayers found a way to make it so much worse. On her blog (tagline: “Spreading Positivity through Jesus Christ”), Mayers defended the killing of Sheats’ daughters because — wait for it — they were dating black guys.
  • Looks like this one is bad satire or at the very least a troll… or, for the sake of our own sanity, we’re going with that side of the argument – 7/7
