Netanyahu’s Lust for Power Revealed in All Its Sickening Glory

To paraphrase Ben-Gurion: Every Hebrew mother should know that she has placed her children’s fate in the hands of a prime minister, other politicians and a school system that are unworthy of it. If there was ever a justification for a civil rebellion (not violent, but also not so polite and photogenic as the social protests of the summer of 2011), here it is – in all its sickening glory.

2 killed in mass shooting in Norway; more than a dozen hurt

“I saw a man arrive at the site with a bag. He picked up a weapon and started shooting,” Roenneberg told NRK. “First I thought it was an air gun. Then the glass of the bar next door was shattered and I understood I had to run for cover.”

Norway experienced one of the worst mass shootings in Europe in 2011 when a right-wing extremist killed 69 people on the island of Utoya after setting off a bomb in Oslo that left eight dead.

Workers can’t be fired for being gay or transgender, Supreme Court rules

The Supreme Court on Monday ruled 6-3 in a landmark decision that gay and transgender employees are protected by civil rights laws against employer discrimination.

A set of cases that came before the court had asked the justices to decide whether Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, which forbids discrimination on the basis of „sex,“ applies to gay and transgender people.

Diskriminierung am Arbeitsplatz: Supreme Court stärkt LGBTQ-Rechte

Hintergrund ist der „Civil Rights Act“ aus dem Jahr 1964, der Diskriminierungen unter anderem aufgrund des „Geschlechts“ („sex“) verbietet. Einige Gerichte und auch die Regierung von US-Präsident Donald Trump legen dies so aus, dass es dabei nur um den Unterschied zwischen Mann und Frau geht, nicht um sexuelle Minderheiten. LGBTQ-Aktivisten verlangten vom Obersten Gerichtshof deswegen eine Klarstellung, dass auch eine Diskriminierung aufgrund der sexuellen Identität verboten ist.

Tulsi Gabbard once touted working for anti-gay group that backed conversion therapy

During her run for state legislature in 2002, Gabbard told the Honolulu Star-Bulletin, „Working with my father, Mike Gabbard, and others to pass a constitutional amendment to protect traditional marriage, I learned that real leaders are willing to make personal sacrifices for the common good. I will bring that attitude of public service to the legislature.“ The quote, which CNN’s KFile found during a review of Gabbard’s early career, shows how closely she aligned herself with her father’s mission at the time.

Amtsantritt Bolsonaros: Brasiliens evangelikaler Kulturschock

Der von Jair Bolsonaro angekündigte „große Kulturwandel“ wirkt bereits – in Form von Angst, Aufrufen zum öffentlichen Denunziantentum und hemmungsloser Verbreitung von Fake-News über politisch Andersdenkende. Brasilien, das einst als gelassen und tolerant galt, erlebt jetzt eine Welle von Hass und Aggressivität. Ein Teil der rechten Revolution ist das Projekt „Schule ohne Partei“ (Escola sem Partido), mit dem staatliche Schulen und Universitäten ideologisch umgekrempelt werden sollen.

Bolsonaro ist Brasiliens Präsident: Am Weg zurück in die Militärdiktatur

(30.10.2018) Am absurdesten war aber wohl der „Gay Kit”, der im Rahmen eines LGBT Aufklärungsprogramm dazu dienen sollte, Homosexualität bei SchülerInnen zu fördern – gegeben hat es den „Gay Kit” freilich nicht. Obwohl mit dieser Kampagne Bolsonaro einerseits gegen das Gesetz verstößt, das die Offenlegung privater Wahlförderung vorschreibt, und andererseits gegen das Verbot gefälschter Inhalte zur Manipulation von Wahlen, annullierte das Gericht zur Überwachung der Wahlen seine Kandidatur nicht.

LGBT Alarm as President Trump Signs ‘Religious Liberty’ Executive Order

(3.5.2018) The order—first reported Wednesday night by Religion News Service—will “help ensure that faith-based organizations have equal access to government funding and equal right to exercise their deeply held beliefs,” Trump said.

But if those last three words—“deeply held beliefs”—sound familiar, it’s because they are often used to justify anti-LGBT legislation in the name of “religious freedom.” Indeed, LGBT advocates say that the executive order is yet another federal action that could potentially encourage discrimination against LGBT people in the name of religion.
