News Stories Three You Otherwise Might Not See
*Jessica Bates, a single mother of five, recently filed a lawsuit against the Oregon Department of Human Services for allegedly denying her adoption application due to her Christian religious beliefs, according to a press release from the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). The press release stated that Bates attempted to apply with the department to adopt children in 2022. It added that her application was (allegedly) denied because her Christian beliefs would not allow her to “respect, accept, and support … the sexual orientation, gender identity, [and] gender expression” of the children in her care as the department’s adoption regulations require. It was not that long ago that it was considered a very good thing if parents wishing to adopt children possessed Christian values. Placing kids with a “good, loving, Christian family” was a thing. No longer, apparently. Progress?
*As it does annually at this time of year, the Returning to the Mount movement announced that it was offering rewards of tens of thousands of shekels for anyone who attempts or succeeds to sacrifice a Paschal lamb on the Temple Mount. Rafael Morris, the head of the Returning to the Mount movement, was recently detained by police on suspicion of doing just that. The officers who detained Morris informed him that they were going to search his home as well. If America’s Democrats had their druthers, they would set the lambs free and gleefully sacrifice Trump and his supporters, and traditional Christians in general.
*The “Associated Students of the University of Nevada at Reno” (ASUN), the university's student government, recently hosted a “Wolf Pack Drag Show” featuring drag show performer “Monique Heart.” An Instagram post advertising the annual event encouraged students and community members to attend the affair and experience "empowering performances" and to "bring one-dollar bills" to "tip & support" the performers. Yes, and encourage kids to bring their lunch money. Wieners or tuna tacos, kids? Or both! Yum! Maybe children who’ve lost a tooth could place it in a drag queen’s g-string. That would give new meaning to the term “tooth fairy!” Even better, perhaps the kids could get more than, say, a dollar for their lost tooth. Maybe the fairy could bring them a new crotch! Yay!
