Public School’s LGBT-Supportive Mural Deemed ‘Obscene’ by Church So Administrators Have It Painted Over

Why is a public school is being housed in a building owned by a church, and required to not do anything that would violate “Catholic moral values, ethics and faith”? A New Jersey taxpayer-funded public charter school run by a private non-profit organization has the Catholic Church for its landlord. Last week administrators at the Bergen Arts and Science Charter School had a portion of an LGBT-supportive mural, created by a 16-year old junior at the school, painted over because Rev. Paul Prevosto, the pastor of Holy Trinity Church which...

In First Amendment Attack Trump Orders Boycott of White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner

In what could be an attack on the First Amendment President Donald Trump has ordered a boycott of the annual White House Correspondents’ Association Dinner. Trump has never attended as president, and last year was furious over comedian Michelle Wolf’s justified criticisms of his administration, especially press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. “The message was conveyed to agency chiefs of staff on Tuesday morning by White House Cabinet Secretary Bill McGinley, who indicated that the order was coming from the president himself,” Politico reports. “Trump has already announced he will be...

Watch: Buttigieg Says He’d Like to See Pence ‘Evolve’ on LGBT Rights – and Not Use Religion ‘To Harm People’

“My problem is when those religious beliefs are used as an excuse to harm other people,” Buttigieg charges. 2020 Democratic candidate Pete Buttigieg is responding to attacks from Vice President Mike Pence, who says the South Bend, Indiana mayor’s belief that God makes people gay infringes on his First Amendment right to freedom of religion. The Vice President is “entitled to his religious beliefs,” says Buttigieg, who has been mayor since 2012, which includes Pence’s tenure as Governor of Indiana. “My problem is when those religious beliefs are used as...

‘I Am Confidant I Will Do So Again’ U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo does not appear to be taking seriously the First Amendment concerns raised by his “faith-based media only” conference call that caused tremendous outrage last week. The Secretary banned all regular State Dept. press, all mainstream press, and invited only reporters from “faith-based” media outlets to attend. Amid questioning from U.S. Rep. Susan Wild (D-PA), not only did Secretary Pompeo defend his decision to exclude all reporters except those from “faith-based” outlets, he promised to do it...
