Bronx Gang Member Gets Seven Years In Prison For Brutal Anti-Gay Attack

6a00d8341c730253ef0133f5173759970b-800wiNelson Falu, a member of the Latin King Goonies gang that in 2010 brutally attacked and sodomized two teen boys and a thirty year old-man, will serve seven years in prison for his role in the horrific crimes that took place in the Bronx, The New York Daily News reports:

Nelson Falu was among
eight members of the “Latin King Goonies” who tortured and beat two
teenage boys and a 30-year-old man over the course of several hours in a
Bronx home, while using anti-gay slurs. Prosecutors say the gang members sodomized two of the men with a
plunger, chained one to a chair, and used a cigarette lighter to inflict
burns. Falu, 20, and two other participants, took guilty pleas in June. Falu, who copped to a robbery plea, declined to say anything before his sentencing, and his victims were not in court. Prosecutor Theresa Gottlieb told Bronx Supreme Court Justice Steven
Barrett her office made the plea offer because the victims don’t want to
relive “the nightmare” on the witness stand. The cases against the other gang members are still pending.

Russian TV Official Dehumanizes Gays On Popular News Program: VIDEO

Put_it_in-tiff

Deputy General Director of the Russian State Television and Radio Broadcasting Company, Dmitri Kisilev recently dehumanized gays on a popular, government-run television program broadcast by the state-owned network Rossiya 1.

His translated comments state, “I think that just imposing fines on gays for homosexual propaganda among teenagers is not enough. They should be banned from donating blood, sperm. And their hearts, in case of the automobile accident, should be buried in the ground or burned as unsuitable for the continuation of life.”

The audience applauded after Kisilev’s comments.

The New Civil Rights Movement adds that Vesti — the show where Kisilev delivered his comments — is “Rossiya 1′s top news show — which airs all across Russia every two hours,” and that Kisilev has served as Deputy General Director of state broadcasting since 2008.

Regarding Rossiya 1, the BBC notes: “Russian TV is dominated by channels that are either run directly by the state or owned by companies with close links to the Kremlin. The government controls Channel One and Russia One – two of the three main federal channels… TV is the main news source for most Russians… Russia is a regular target for criticism and condemnation from media freedom watchdogs.”

Crosswalk at Russian Embassy in Sweden Painted Rainbow Colors in Protest of Anti-Gay Laws: PHOTO

Embassy

Here’s what the crosswalk outside the Russian Embassy in Stockholm, Sweden looks like today, via Street Art Utopia.

The Local reports:

Gay rights supporters have painted the zebra crossing outside the Russian embassy in Stockholm in the colours of the rainbow following angry exchanges during last week’s Pride festival over the country’s treatment of LGBT individuals. Stockholm police have been in regular contact with the Russian headquarters since the earlier manifestations but were unaware of the latest incident.

“We have no case on it but probably it is classed as vandalism or a violation of traffic regulations,” Ulf Lindgren of Stockholm police told Dagens Nyheter.

He added that the police are not responsible for restoring the walkway to its regular pattern of black and white.

“Protesting is one thing, it has to be done. But this is wrong even if the objective is something else. It can affect people who are using the zebra crossing. There’s a risk it can create danger for those using the crossing as they should look a certain way. It’s confusing if they are different,” added Lundgren.

On Saturday a group of naked men marched back and forth across the rainbow crossing outside the embassy. One of the group took pictures but it remains unclear if they are connected with the stunt.

Sumatran Orangutan Captured on Camera Giving Birth at UK Sanctuary: VIDEO

Orangutan

Last month, UK conservationists captured something on camera they’d never seen before: Dana, an endangered Sumatran orangutan, giving birth. Backstory on the birth here.

According to conservationists at the Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust, “The Sumatran orangutan population, classified as Critically Endangered (IUCN Red list of threatened species), is thought to number a mere 6,600 individuals, and reportedly loses 10 to 15% of forest habitat to logging and palm oil plantations every year.”

Qyote Of The Day – Sylvia Thompson

“Finally, a prominent nation is taking on the homosexual agenda and rejecting it outright. A number of African nations have done the same, but third-world countries are not newsworthy to mainstream media. The irony is stunning that a Communist nation would understand that preserving the value of men and women marrying and producing children makes for demographic survival, while many American Christian leaders cower in the shadows, in fear of activist homosexuals and their leftist supporters. I say ‘cheers’ to the Russians on this one. That nation will probably outlive America.” – Sylvia Thompson, writing for Alan Keyes’ Renew America.

RELATED: Earlier this summer Renew America published a column calling for states to secede in order to prevent gay marriage.

Anchorage Pastor Kicks Out Boy Scout Troop: ‘No Homosexual Will Enter the Kingdom of God’

The Anchorage Baptist Temple in Anchorage, Alaska has kicked out Boy Scout Troop 1316 and Cub Scout Pack 316 over the organization’s decision to allow gay youth, the Anchorage Daily News reports:

PrevoThe church’s decision came now, months later, because “we were just hoping there would be enough repercussions that the Boy Scouts might reconsider, and they haven’t,” the church’s chief pastor, Rev. Jerry Prevo, said Thursday.

Prevo said he wasn’t worried about backlash. The Bible’s message is plain, he said: “No homosexual will enter the Kingdom of God.”

Rev. Tom Cobaugh, the Baptist Temple’s education minister who serves as liaison with the Boy Scout troop, later clarified the decision:

“Troop 1316 and Pack 316 were ministries of the Anchorage Baptist Temple,” Cobaugh wrote. “ABT has not changed its position because the Bible has not changed its position on sexuality (see Leviticus 18:22, I Corinthians 6:9). The BSA has changed. They caved on their position because of political pressure and the threat that it may affect their bottom line financially, through donations and/or their tax-exempt status.”
