San Diego church sues state agency over requirement to provide abortion coverage

Skyline Church
Feb 8, 2016

 

SAN DIEGO — A lawsuit was filed in state court Feb. 4 against the California Department of Managed Health Care for forcing churches to pay for elective abortions in their health insurance plans.

The Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF) attorneys representing Skyline Wesleyan Church, La Mesa, Calif. in the state suit, said it is similar to the lawsuit filed in federal court in October of last year on behalf of three other California churches.

“Churches should not be forced to pay for the killing of innocent human life,” said ADF Senior Counsel Erik Stanley. “The government has no right to demand that church health insurance plans include coverage for elective abortions – something that violates the most sincerely held religious beliefs of this church and nearly all churches throughout the state. “

Stanley said that California is violating its own laws and constitution by strong-arming churches into having this coverage in their plans.

Jim Garlow, pastor of Skyline Church, does not want the church to be forced into funding the practice of abortion through its health care coverage and has said that it defies every fiber of his being.

“I feel that not only [that] the killing of babies in the womb is wrong foundationally, but as a father who had the privilege of adopting four children … was repulsive beyond words,” Garlow said in previous interviews.

ADF filed the lawsuit, Skyline Wesleyan Church v. California Department of Managed Health Care, in the California Superior Court for the County of San Diego. It cites violations of the church’s rights and freedoms under state’s Administrative Procedures Act and both the federal and state constitutions.

In 2014, ADF and Life Legal Defense Foundation filed formal complaints with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services against DMHC regarding California’s mandate and its violation of federal conscience law. Those came on the heels of a complaint filed directly with DMHC, which responded by affirming its decision to force all plans to cover all abortions without any explanation as to how that decision squared with state and federal law.

“California forced abortion coverage into churches’ health insurance plans without their knowledge or approval,” said ADF Legal Counsel Jeremiah Galus.

Galus believes that Californians should not be forced to choose between following their deepest convictions and submitting to unlawful and unnecessary government mandates.

“Because Obamacare requires employers to provide health insurance coverage, the California mandate has left churches with no way to opt out of paying for abortions,” said Galus.

The ADF complaint explains that DMHC based its mandate on a requirement in state law “that employer health plans cover ‘basic health care services.’ Until the Mandate, however, the DMHC had not interpreted ‘basic health care services’ to include voluntary and elective abortions. In fact, existing law and regulations define ‘basic health care services’ to include services only ‘where medically necessary….’”

Although DMHC and its director “knew that employers like Skyline Church have sincerely held religious beliefs against paying for or facilitating abortions,” the complaint continues, the two “Defendants nevertheless required that any group health insurance plan sold to them cover abortions, including voluntary and elective ones. Thus, by issuing the Mandate, Defendants caused Skyline’s group health plan to include coverage for voluntary and elective abortions without its knowledge and in violation of its religious beliefs.”

VIDEO The Classiest Debate Moment That No-One Noticed, Never Leave A Good Man Down…

Trump and Carson

February 7, 2016 by sundance
Few people will talk about this, and fewer will even want to acknowledge it, but what Donald Trump did before the debate even began shows the measure of a real man’s worth.

At the beginning of the ABC debate, each of the candidates were being introduced in a specific order. The first name called to the stage was Chris Christie. The applause was loud and lingered through the time when Martha Raddatz called the second candidate Ben Carson.

Dr. Carson did not hear his name called (easy to understand why when you listen to the video) and stood in the entry-way. The moderators, with their backs to the candidates, didn’t notice his absence and called the third name on the list, Ted Cruz.

Ted walked past Dr. Carson and onto the stage. Carson remained in the awkward, and embarrassing position, ‘no-mans-land’, on-camera but out of sight of the live audience.

What happened next shows the remarkable character of Donald Trump.

The fourth name called was Donald Trump, but by then the back-stage crew and candidates were aware of Dr. Carsons’ position. Trump slowly approached, and then realized the embarrassing position of a fellow candidate hanging in the wind.

Trump showed his leadership by standing right next to his friend, and not walking onto the stage.

The other names continued to be called, and proceeded as mentioned. But not Donald Trump, he remained with his colleague thereby reducing the internal anxiety felt by Carson.

It would have been very easy for Trump to walk by Ben, just like all the other candidates did. But instead he chose to wait, and remove the embarrassment factor by infinite magnitudes.

Then, like a boss, when Dr. Carson was called to the stage, Trump waited and allowed Ben to get the audience response and appreciation. It takes a lot of courage to make split second decisions like this, and it shows a remarkable insight into the man’s character.

Watch.


People often mistake Donald Trump’s self-confidence for arrogance or even narcissism. But there is not a narcissist on the planet who would have put themselves into a position like that to assist a competing colleague.

Here’s Mr. Trump talking to an audience member several years ago, and reminding them that no-one is “less than”.

VIDEO Billary Clinton: Rapist And Coverup Team Par Excellence

Billary Clinton is the rapist and coverup team of Bill and Hillary Clinton. Bill rapes, Hillary covers up. ‘Twas always so. They are a psychopathic duo.

Billary Clinton – the rapist and coverup team of Bill and Hillary Clinton – is the monster that never seems to die. It is truly mind-boggling to consider that the pair of them are not behind bars. Billary Clinton has committed so many crimes it would take a court years to go over the evidence for all of them. Despite all of this, not only are Bill and Hillary free, but Hillary actually has the audacity to run for President, while being an accomplice or actively participating in countless acts of obstruction of justice, accepting bribes, perjury, theft, rape and murder (just to get started). Since the scope of the Clinton’s crimes is so broad, this article will focus on just one – rape. Specifically, we will look at how Bill has raped his way through the world right from the start of his career, and how Hillary has been there to cover it all up – with threats of lawsuits and murder to scare victims into silence.

Billary Clinton: Bill the Rapist, Hillary the Coverup Agent

Bill Clinton is not just a womanizer. He’s a sexual predator and he’s arapist. Bill has repeatedly raped women right from the time he was a Rhodes scholar. Former Clinton insider Larry Nichols is one of several witnesses who has attested to the truth of it, with numerous stories of how he and the gubernatorial or presidential circle surrounding Clinton had to cover up for Bill the philanderer and rapist. Bill developed a nasty habit of biting his victims’ lips, which is a common technique used by rapists to break down a woman’s defense. In numerous instances, he also grabbed women’s breasts, vaginas, exposed himself and demanded oral sex. Here is an brief and incomplete list of some of the women Bill has raped:

  • Eileen Wellstone, an English woman who stated Bill raped her after she met him at a pub near Oxford in 1969. Clinton admitted having sex with the girl, but claimed it was consensual. The victim’s family declined to pursue the case;
  • Juanita Broaddrick, a volunteer in Clinton’s gubernatorial campaign, stated Bill raped her in 1978. She sustained a bruised and torn lip which she claimed she got when Clinton bit her during the rape;
  • Carolyn Moffet, a legal secretary in Little Rock Arkansas in 1979, stated she met then Governor Clinton at a political fundraiser. When she got an invitation to meet Bill in his hotel room, he was apparently sitting on the couch, wearing only an undershirt. As Moffet states, “He pointed at his penis and told me to suck it. I told him I didn’t even do that for my boyfriend and he got mad, grabbed my head and shoved it into his lap. I pulled away from him and ran out of the room.”;
  • Elizabeth Gracen (nee Ward), the Miss Arkansas who won the Miss America crown in 1982, told friends she was forced by Clinton to have sex with him shortly after she won her state crown. She stated publicly the sex with Clinton was consensual, but close friends of hers say she still maintains privately that Clinton forced himself on her;
  • Paula Corbin Jones, an Arkansas state worker, filed a sexual harassment case against Clinton. Same kind of story: she alleges Bill, then Governor, exposed himself and demanded oral sex. Clinton settled the case with Jones for $850,000;
  • Sandra Allen James, a former Washington DC, political fundraiser claims Bill, presidential candidate at the time, invited her to his hotel room in 1991. She alleges he pinned her against the wall and stuck his hand up her dress. She screamed, at which point Clinton released her and she fled the room. When she reported the incident to her boss, he advised her to keep her mouth shut if she wanted to keep working;
  • Myra Bell “Sally” Miller, who in 1992, had the back windshield of her Jeep smashed in and shotgun shells placed on her driver’s seat. These are the exact tactics that Clinton operative Anthony Pellicano (who Hillary hired and is now in jail) was known for. Sally also got letters saying things like “Marilyn Monroe was snuffed”. This is a death threat;
  • Gennifer Flowers, who Bill lied about. Flowers’s apartment was broken into multiple times and it was ransacked in 1991, most likely by Clinton goons. A home ransacking is a psychological rape;
  • Christy Zercher, a flight attendant on Clinton’s leased campaign plane in 1992, says Bill exposed himself to her, grabbed her breasts and made explicit remarks about oral sex;
  • Kathleen Willey, a White House volunteer, reported that Clinton grabbed her, grabbed her breast and forced her hand against his erect genitals in the Oval Office in 1993. Willey told her story in a 60 Minutesinterview.

Billary Clinton: Hillary the Coverup Agent

Hillary got pretty good at covering things up – and threatening – in order to ensure Billary remained in power.

Hillary got pretty good at covering things up – and threatening – in order to ensure Billary remained in power.

The common theme to Bill’s raping is Hillary covering it all up. At some point, the two must have reached an agreement that in order for both of them to get into power, Hillary would have to play the coverup agent to Bill’s reckless and violent sexual indulgences. Hillary has terrorized many of Bill’s rape victims into silence with all kinds of threats (including death threats). The general pattern seems to have been to either force them to into silence, or to falsely state the “sex was consensual”. Some of these victims have probably also joined the infamous Clinton body count. One example is Suzanne Coleman, who had an affair with Clinton when he was Attorney General of Arkansas, and died of “suicide” with a gunshot wound to the back of her head, who was 7 months pregnant at time of her death and who had told her friends it was Bill Clinton’s child. Another example is Judi Gibbs, a Penthouse model and prostitute, who was a regular call girl for Bill. There were apparently photos of him having sex with her that threatened his Presidential campaign. Another example is Gary Johnson, who was an attorney that happened to live next door to Gennifer Flowers, and had incriminating video evidence of Bill visiting her apartment for sexual encounters. He was attacked on June 26th, 1992, beaten and left for dead.

Hers is what Juanita Broaddrick said about Hillary threatening her:

“I almost got nauseous when she [Hillary] came over to me … I just want you to know how much Bill and I appreciate what you do for him … she took ahold of my hand and squeezed it and said, ‘Do you understand: everything that you do’. I could have passed out at that moment …”

Kathleen Willey says in addition to having her character smeared, she was not so subtly threatened:

“Along with the smears were acts of intimidation … Two days before her (Willey’s) testimony in the Paula Jones case, she says she was approached at dawn by a stranger while walking in her neighborhood. The man threatened her and her children by name, and references were made to her damaged car and missing 13-year-old pet. The message, she said, was clear: Remain silent.

A day after the deposition, she found an animal skull on her porch.”

On top of all of this, here is a excerpt of Hillary laughing about defending a rapist who she managed to get off the hook for raping a 12 year old girl.

Conclusion: If Americans Knew The Truth About Billary Clinton …

Now that Hillary is fighting it out with Bernie Sanders to capture the Democratic nomination, it’s more important than ever that people know the truth about the psychopathic duo of Billary Clinton. It’s bad enough that the two of them are still at large – let alone Hillary trying to be President. If enough people share this information and investigate the truth for themselves, we can at least hope to thwart the Hillary 2016 campaign and stop the Billary Clinton juggernaut from taking office again.

VIDEO MASS anti-Islam protests break out across Europe; who showed up in the crowd… – Saudis Prepare To Invade Syria

MASS anti-Islam protests break out across Europe; look who showed up in the crowd…

30F0984C00000578-3435093-image-a-9_1454781120490

Progressive Europe is waking up to the costs of “tolerance” from their welcoming attitude towards Muslim refugees.

Cologne was just the tip of the iceberg when it came to New Year’s sex attacks carried out by migrants. You probably didn’t hear that similar attacks were carried out in Düsseldorf, Dortmund, and Bielefeld.

Nearly half of Germans now want Angela Merkel out of office. Hardly a favorable turn of events for one who was just crowned Time Magazine’s person of the year.

Via the Associated Press:Protesters rallied against Islam and immigration in several European cities Saturday, sometimes clashing with police or counter-demonstrators amid growing tensions over the massive influx of asylum-seekers to the continent.

However, a familiar face showed up on some of the protesters’ signs. Donald Trump’s suggestion about temporarily banning Muslim immigrants in the United States seems to have found favor in Europe as well.

Riot police clashed with demonstrators in Amsterdam as supporters of the anti-Islam group PEGIDA tried to hold their first protest meeting in the Dutch capital. Only about 200 PEGIDA supporters were present, outnumbered by police and left-wing demonstrators who shouted, “Refugees are welcome, fascists are not!”

Dutch riot police detained several people as officers on horseback intervened to separate the two groups of demonstrators. It was not immediately clear how many people were detained.

In Germany, up to 8,000 people took part in a PEGIDA rally in Dresden, according to the independent group Durchgezaehlt, which monitors attendance figures. Up to 3,500 people took part in a counter-demonstration on the other side of the Elbe River that divides the city, it said.

No incidents were reported at the event.

In the northern French city of Calais, police dispersed a rowdy anti-migrant protest with tear gas after clashes with protesters and detained several far-right demonstrators.

Around 150 militants from the anti-Islam, anti-immigration group PEDIGA gathered Saturday chanting slogans like: “We must not let Calais die!”

Calais has been a focal point for migrants who want to slip into Britain via the Channel Tunnel. Several thousand have been living there in slums for months.

PEGIDA, whose German acronym stands for ‘Patriotic Europeans against the Islamization of the West,’ has become a magnet for far-right and anti-immigrant sentiment since it was founded in Dresden two years ago. After a drop in attendance last spring, the group saw a rise in support from people angered by the unprecedented influx into Europe of refugees from Africa, Asia and the Middle East.

Smaller PEGIDA-style protests were also taking place in France, Britain, Poland, the Czech Republic, Ireland, Denmark, Finland and Estonia.

As the article stated, no incidents were reported at these events. The same can’t be said for the women of Cologne, Düsseldorf, Dortmund and Bielefeld.

Porn Study Reveals A Lot About Teens – PORN HARMS – Children And Pornography

PORN HARMS: JUST ASK THOSE IN THE INDUSTRY

Shelley Lubben

 

At the moment there are several government inquiries being held in Australia about porn, young people, and sexualisation. And overseas people are beginning to wake up to the very real dangers of pornography as well. For example, last month a Utah lawmaker introduced a bill to deal with the porn scourge. Here is how one news report covers the story:

A Utah state senator is taking a stand against pornography, blaming skin flicks for creating a “sexually toxic environment,” increasing the demand for prostitution and ruining families. Sen. Todd Weiler introduced his legislation on Friday, asking that the state recognize that porn is creating a public health hazard. He called for a reform to take on the “pornography epidemic that is harming the citizens of Utah and the nation.” The politician told the Daily News that porn was more addictive than powerful drugs, and the public needed to start seeing adult films as a national epidemic.

“I have read books and I have experts tell me pornography is more difficult to overcome than cocaine,” he said. He compares the public perception of porn to cigarettes in the early 20th century, when doctors and celebrities openly smoked and advertised them as healthy. He said he hopes to shift the public opinion on adult entertainment the same way it has on cigarettes.

It is not just the consumers of porn who are harmed. Those who make the films, especially the actresses, also suffer greatly. The common impression is that porn stars – like prostitutes – are just so happy to be there, and have no problems with what they do; it is just another career choice. The reality is much different.

Simply letting the women tell their own gruesome stories is the best way to proceed here. There are now a growing number of porn stars who have left the business and are telling the world what a lousy hellhole the porn industry is. One of the leaders in all this is Shelley Lubben. Here is part of her story:

Lubben ShelleyShe landed in the San Fernando valley with no food and no money. ‘A “nice” man saw I was upset and told me how sorry he was.’ Still shocked and angry about being kicked out the house, so ‘that I didn’t care any more . . . I sold myself for $35.’

Thus Shelley entered the ‘glamorous’ life of prostitution, but the money, jewelry, and gifts soon included bizarre sex with strangers who stalked her, slashed her tires, and threatened to kill her if she demurred from performing certain sex acts. One man tried to kill her with his truck, and she often had to lie her way out of frightening situations. During her eight years as a prostitute and exotic dancer, she had two miscarriages and one birth. Little Tiffany grew up living ‘with a lewd wild woman.’

Now a single mom, ‘Jesus kept tugging at my heart,’ Shelley writes, ‘but I ignored him. I figured, God wasn’t taking care of me, so I had to do whatever I could to survive.’ Most of her prostitution money went for drugs and alcohol to blot out the trauma of her life. To avoid the rapes and arrests for prostitution, she turned to pornography because ‘it seemed safer and more legal.’

However, even prostitution did not involve the brutal kinds of rape and degradation that she endured while ‘starring’ in pornography. Soon she was required to do very hardcore scenes. ‘[O]nly more drugs and alcohol could get me through them. . . . I sold what was left of my heart, mind and femininity to the porn industry and the woman and person in me died completely on the porn set.’ After becoming infected with herpes, I quietly left the porn industry but went back to prostitution to survive.

A more recent article about Lubben contains even more gruesome details on the sordid, dangerous and high-risk world of porn. Says Lubben:

It’s a vicious circle [being] a sex worker, because you’re stripping, taxi dancing, and you just get burned out in prostitution. After prostitution I got burned out, and I was lied to that I would be safe from STDs (sexually transmitted diseases) and I would make all this money. I was a single parent, so what the heck, might as well do sex on camera. But it was completely and utterly the worst, darkest thing I’ve ever been involved in.

We didn’t use condoms in porn. There’s no condoms allowed, so we’re forced to do unprotected sex – and I can’t tell you how many people alter their tests. Just last year, they had 4 HIV cases, a high bunch out of a very small group of people…we know that most of the porn stars have had an STD at one time or another, and they estimate between 66% to 99% have herpes. They don’t test for herpes, so all these people are involved with rampant STDs.

Even the LA Public Health Department shows they’ve been monitoring and they came up with thousands and thousands [of cases] of chlamydia and gonorrhea. They’re the highest group in California to have that many STDs. So when people click [on porn], they’re contributing to sex trafficking, they’re contributing to STDs, they’re contributing to people who are mostly alcohol to drug addicts. Now I’m speaking of the majority. Not every porn star’s a drug addict, but the majority of them are. And I can’t tell you, when I went through recovery, I had PTSD. I had all kinds of disorders, serious traumas.

Consider just one more sad story, this time of former porn star Veronica Lain. Here is justa small part of it:

The next thing I knew, I was in Las Vegas at a porn convention signing autographs and posing with fans. I wasn’t even famous but yet they made me feel like I was and it hooked me even more. I did some more movies in Las Vegas and did not sleep much at all. I wasn’t even old enough to gamble. You can make a porn movie in Vegas but you can’t gamble or drink. That’s just wrong.
It was all so overwhelming for me so I came back to Colorado but I ended up going to the convention 2 more times again. I loved the attention and by then I was jaded and use to the whole porn world. I continued to work in Colorado doing, movies, parties, prostitution, photos.

Yes Porn Stars are also prostitutes! Anything and everything that had to with sex work I did it. I learned to depend on men to take care of me. I wanted a father so much. I was young and loved the attention and money. Porn was not “glamorous” though. I definitely did some things I did not want to do. I saw girls gagged and choked on the set during filming. I was one of those girls who was gagged and choked. I also saw empty douches and enema boxes laying around. I also met women who couldn’t work because of STD’s. I was treated like meat and saw other women going through the same, or worse. I would stay up and party all night on drugs. I wasn’t even old enough to drink.

At about 20 years old, I flew out to Los Angeles and stayed for a month and a half in Hollywood! Wow, I was a real “porn star” now. Everything seemed pretty great up until I started getting terrible abdominal pains so bad that I couldn’t get out of bed. I was so sick that I went to a clinic and found out I had several bacterial infections and Chlamydia all at the same time! The medicine made me throw up and I hated it. I came back home to Colorado and decided to work at a topless bar for about 2 years to get away from porn.

I also started drinking heavily. I was trying to kill the pain with alcohol and pot daily. I went back to prostitution and I turned tricks out of my apartment. I risked my life over and over and tried to quit many times. I tried to get regular jobs here and there. I wanted out so bad. But I pretty much did sex work off and on from the time I was 18 until age 32. The money was always there and I didn’t know anything else.

On Lubbens’ home page she provides this helpful collection of shocking information, not only about the negative impact on porn workers, but other bits of information as well:

Porn Industry Statistics

  • 36 porn stars died that we know of from HIV, suicide, homicide and drugs between 2007 and 2010.
  • 66% of porn performers have Herpes, a non-curable disease.
  • 2,396 cases of Chlamydia and 1,389 cases of Gonorrhea reported among performers since 2004.
  • Over 100 straight and gay performers died from AIDS.
  • 26 cases of HIV reported by Adult Industry Medical Healthcare Foundation (AIM), since 2004.
  • 70% of sexually transmitted infections in the porn industry occur in females according to County of Los Angeles Public Health.
  • Chlamydia and Gonorrhea among performers is 10x greater than that of LA County 20-24 year olds.
  • The largest group viewing online pornography is ages 12 to 17.
  • More than 11 million teens regularly view porn online.
  • There are 4.2 million pornographic websites, 420 million pornographic web pages, and 68 million daily search engine requests.
  • 50% of men and 20% of women in the church regularly view porn.
  • Of 1351 pastors surveyed, 54% had viewed Internet pornography within the last year.
  • Of all known child abuse domains, 48 percent are housed in the United States.
  • At the 2003 meeting of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, a gathering of the nation’s divorce lawyers, attendees revealed that 58% of their divorces were a result of a spouse looking at excessive amounts of pornography online.
  • Child pornography is one of the fastest growing businesses online, and the content is becoming much worse. In 2008, Internet Watch Foundation found 1,536 individual child abuse domains.
  • Worldwide pornography revenue in 2006 was $97.06 billion. Of that, approximately $13 billion was in the United States.

Porn harms everyone it touches. It certainly harms those caught up in this sordid industry. It is time to say no to porn.

Porn Study Reveals A Lot About Teens
beware Porn harms

Jan 30, 2016 by Tony Perkins

 

As far as most young people are concerned, ignoring garbage is worse than watching it! That’s just one of the shockers in a blockbuster pornography study the Barna Group plans to release this spring. When asked, most teenagers (56 percent) say “not recycling your trash” is “usually or always wrong,” compared to the 32 percent who think watching porn is wrong. Unfortunately, the news gets much worse for parents of the next generation. While teen sex may be down, watching it is not. Most high schoolers and young adults are turning to pornography “because it is less risky than actually having sex.”

But that’s not necessarily true, studies say. There are plenty of dangerous side effects to pornography that can destroy lives just as easily as promiscuity. Pornography creates problems in marriages, children, and even society.

Men who look at pornography are more likely to feel dissatisfied in their marriage — making it a prime pathway to infidelity and divorce. At its core, pornography is a love-killer.

In one analysis, the more porn a man was exposed to, the more likely he was to prefer that women be submissive and subordinate to men. And as MARRI’s research bears out, men with this addiction also have a higher tolerance for things like rape, sexual aggression, and promiscuity. Child sex offenders, for instance, are more likely to view pornography, which helps fuel the demand for sex trafficking.

And if you think adult entertainment spares you from disease, think again. Pornography leads to sexual permissiveness, which is the gateway to STDs. It’s physically devastating, too — even fundamentally altering the brain! And yet, women are more into pornography than ever — a sad irony for an industry built on their exploitation.

In a world where these images are a cell phone away, parents need to be especially vigilant. “Sexting” is rampant, Barna Group found. A whopping two-thirds of teens told the researchers that they’ve gotten a nude photo on their phone (41 percent have sent one).

As discouraging as Barna Group’s findings are, they may be exactly what pastors and parents need to hear. It’s time for America to wake up to the fact that too few Christians are talking about the problem of pornography. And until they do, there’s no one to blame for the country’s cultural condition but us.

CHILDREN AND PORNOGRAPHY

generic_graphic_crime_child_porn

As has been documented so often, porn impacts everyone and is exceedingly harmful. Of real concern is the easy access children have to pornography nowadays. One older study found that 10 to 15-year olds can readily access porn sights, and they have a “remarkably blasé” attitude towards Internet porn. They even said porn filters were unnecessary and unwelcome.

And a study by the former Australian Broadcasting Authority found that almost half of Australian children who use computers have been exposed to pornography on the Internet. They usually stumble upon the objectionable material while searching for something else, or by unsolicited emails. The study says this happens even though 84 per cent of parents supervise their children’s Internet use.

A more recent study found that nearly one in five Australian children has been approached online by a stranger. And 47 per cent have been exposed to pornographic or other inappropriate material. Another study found that one in six children as young as eight have been exposed to porn while on the Internet, and that 40 per cent of children aged between eight and 13 have found websites they know their parents would forbid them seeing.

A still more recent Australian study found that 97 per cent of girls under 15 had seen Net porn, while 100 per cent of boys under 15 had seen it. Other research paints a similarly depressing picture: “An estimated 70 per cent of boys have seen pornography by the age of twelve and 100 per cent by the age of fifteen. Girls are also increasingly exposed to pornographic images… Australian author Joan Sauers found that 53.5 per cent of girls twelve and under in Australia have seen pornography, 97 per cent by the age of sixteen.”

And a US study of 1,500 teens found that 42 per cent of Internet users aged 10 to 17 said they had seen online pornography in the past year. Two-thirds of these said it was uninvited. Other recent figures are also greatly concerning: “The average age of first exposure to porn is 11, but children as young as 6 are asking their parents about pornography they saw on the smartphones of older children.”

What is worse, children accessing porn on the Internet and elsewhere are now acting out what they have seen. For example, child protection experts are warning that Internet porn is creating a new generation of sexual predators as young as six years of age.

The Children At Risk Assessment Unit in Canberra has warned of a huge increase in kids under ten sexually abusing other kids, mainly because of browsing porn sites on the Internet. A social worker at the Unit said that many of the kids thought that pornography was the Internet’s sole purpose.

But let’s put a human face to all this. Consider for example this tragic case from the UK:

A 13-year-old boy told a UK court that he raped his 8-year-old sister after viewing pornography at his friend’s house. The teenager told police he “decided to try it out” on his sister because she was small and “couldn’t remember stuff,” reported theLancashire Telegraph. The boy, who cannot be named for legal reasons, pleaded guilty on Monday in a Magistrates Court to rape, indecent assault, and inciting a minor to perform a sexual act on him. The boy has been released on bail to live with his family while his sister is receiving support from specialist officers.

However we sadly have many other similar cases of this occurring. The same article goes on to say this:

But the 13-year-old rapist is not an isolated incident. There have been numerous cases in recent years in which children acted out what they saw in pornography.

-November 2013: A different 13-year old UK boy pleaded guilty to raping an eight-year old girl when he was 10. A pornography addiction since age 9 was said to have played a significant role in his crimes.

-March 2013: Two boys aged 14 and 15 admitted to a British court that they were re-enacting scenes witnessed in violent online pornography when they beat, brutalized, then raped a 14-year-old girl they had tied to a chair.

-March 2013: A UK report found that thousands of British children had committed sexual offenses. In all, 4,562 minors – some as young as five – committed 5,028 sexual offenses over a three year period from 2009-2012. Experts blamed “easy access to sexual material.”

-January 2012: Children’s aid and sex abuse organizations in Australia largely blamed 414 cases of children sexually abusing other children on the explosion of pornography made accessible to children.

-August 2012: A 13-year-old Canadian boy pleaded guilty to repeatedly raping a 4-year-old boy who lived in his foster home. The boy said the idea came from watching “gay porn” on his foster parents’ home computer.

-April 2012: A child therapist reported a case of a 13-year-old boy who raped his 5-year-old sister after developing a “complex fantasy world” warped by “two years of constant porn use.”

Also consider this horrible, and very recent story:

Liz Walker was only six years old when an older girl from up the street squashed in next to her on the school bus and excitedly whispered “Hey do you want to see something?” It was a magazine she found under her brother’s bed and full of graphic pornography. “I felt this sense of disgust, but also arousal,” Ms Walker remembers. “I was catapulted into an awareness of my sexuality I wasn’t ready for. In my six-year-old brain I thought that’s what you had to do to get noticed.”
She started looking at porn every afternoon after school, and trying out the scenarios she saw on other children. Her early sexualisation saw her lose her virginity at 12 and have multiple sexual partners during her teens. “I was seeking out those sexual interactions wherever I could because I had been conditioned to think that’s what women did,” Ms Walker recalls. “I had a reputation as a slut from a very young age.”

She ended up binge drinking and taking drugs to cover up her “emotional deficit”, and spent her late teens and early 20s in and out of psychiatric wards. And she attributes it to that fateful morning on the school bus. “It was all because of seeing that porn once. Before that I’d had no sexual awareness, I had a healthy home environment, there were no other contributing factors.”

Ben Shapiro offers a helpful – and shocking – summary of what we are dealing with here in his 2005 book, Porn Generation:

Internet porn doesn’t only affect adults. Kids are the hardest hit by the internet porn hurricane. The average age of first Internet exposure to pornography stands at eleven years old. The largest consumers of Internet porn are kids aged twelve to seventeen. The statistics are incredible: 80 percent of fifteen- to seventeen-year-olds report having had multiple exposures to hard-core porn, and 90 percent of eight- to sixteen-year-olds report having viewed porn online, most while doing their homework.

Yes exactly right. It is time to take a stand against the porno plague. It is harmful to adults, to relationships, to societies, and it is especially harmful to our children. Enough is enough.

Right now there is a federal inquiry into this subject. You have one more month to put in a submission. Please do, no matter how short. Our children need protection. See here for details.

VIDEO Anti-White Agenda Revealed at GitHub’s Diversity Team – Truth About Political Correctness

 

8 Feb 2016    by CHARLIE NASH

Online source code repository and team collaboration service GitHub has been under fire after an anti-white agenda was revealed within the company’s “Social Impact Team.”

According to Tech Insider’s reveal on GitHub’s current situation, CEO Chris Wanstrath is radically changing the company. The former flat structure that eliminated substantial hierarchy has been replaced with supervisors and middle managers, and the ability for employees to work remotely has been cut back in favour of mandatory office working environments. These changes have prompted many long-term employees to leave, with some reportedly being ousted if they cannot meet the new requirements.

GitHub’s Social Impact Team, which is “in charge of figuring out how to use the product to tackle social issues” has also faced heavy criticism. Headed by diversity consultant Nicole Sanchez, the team’s previous achievements include working with the White House to fit “low-income homes” with free Wi-Fi around the country, but the team is now focused on diversifying the company’s workforce.

“It is very hard to even interview people who are ‘white,’” claimed an anonymous GitHub employee speaking to Tech Insider. It’s a claim that seems shocking but should come as no surprise considering Sanchez’s previous outspoken statements on diversity.

In February 2015, Sanchez wrote an article for USA Today entitled “More white women does not equal tech diversity,” and during a diversity training talk Sanchez even stated that technology was “not work for white folks to lead” and that “some of the biggest barriers to progress are white women.”

Danilo Campos, the technical director at GitHub’s Social Impact Team, is also no stranger to controversial comments about race.

“Don’t think we’ll succeed teaching white, male middle managers empathy and compassion anytime soon. So let’s limit their scope of damage,” wrote Campos in one tweet.

Soon after the Tech Insider piece was published, Campos was quick to deny all allegations against him and the Social Impact Team.

“Don’t believe EVERYTHING you read, but: I’m proud to be part of an expert team telling the truth on tech diversity,” wrote Campos in another tweet featuring a link to the article. “All right, now I’m gonna get baked and watch the pilot of the West Wing because I am living my best life,” he added a few hours later.

Campos wasn’t the only employee to respond to the situation, with Sanchez making her Twitter account private; a tactic commonly used by figures of controversy in order to temporarily hide and delete statements which may be used against them.

Diversifying the workplace is not uncommon in today’s technology landscape, with leading giants such as Twitter, Dropbox, and Yahoo engaging in a variety of diversity programmes, but GitHub seems to have taken the mantle for most racially controversial. Many users on social media, including regular users of GitHub, have expressed outrage.

 

GitHub has not yet publicly responded to the situation.
