 Disney Channel Show Introduces First Ever Gay Storyline
 Show audience median age: 10-years-old

The Disney Channel is once again wading into the culture war with one of its most popular shows set to feature a male teen’s transition into homosexuality.
On Friday, the second season of the show Andi Mack premiers, which according to The Hollywood Reporter, will introduce the network’s first gay storyline.

The show, based around fictional female lead Andi, “will feature a young male — one of the show’s main characters — beginning to realize that he has feelings for a male classmate,” reports THR.
“Friday’s episode finds Andi awkwardly sorting out her feelings for her classmate Jonah (Asher Angel). At the same time, Cyrus, also 13, realizes that he, too, has feelings for Jonah and confides in Buffy — the scene and Buffy’s reaction are intended to serve as a positive role model for both kids and adults — even as he struggles with how to share this revelation with his new girlfriend. This kicks off his journey to self-discovery and ultimately self-acceptance as a gay individual, as seen in subsequent episodes.”

As noted by THR, Andi Mack is “top-rated in its time period among kids 6-14,” and has a median viewer age of 10.
A spokesman for the Disney Channel said the series update is about educating audiences on “inclusion.”
“Andi Mack is a story about tweens figuring out who they are; Terri Minsky, the cast and everyone involved in the show takes great care in ensuring that it’s appropriate for all audiences and sends a powerful message about inclusion and respect for humanity,” a statement to THR reads.
A spokesman for the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) lauded the show because “more and more young people [are] coming out as LGBTQ.”
“Television reflects the real-life world, and today that includes LGBTQ youth who deserve to see their lives depicted on their favorite shows. Disney has been a leader in LGBTQ inclusion, and there are so many young people who will be excited to see Cyrus’ story unfold,” said GLAAD president Sarah Kate Ellis.
This wouldn’t be the Disney Channel’s first foray into the gay issue – previous shows have also featured gay characters.
“However, this story arc is a first for the network, which has not previously told the story of a character’s journey of realizing that he or she is gay and embarking on that journey of self-discovery,” writes THR.
Earlier this year one of the channel’s animated shows, Star Vs. the Forces of Evil, also featured the network’s first same-sex kisses, slipping in a scene in which people in a crowd delivered same-sex kisses to their gay and lesbian partners.

Islamic State jihadists, reeling from heavy territorial losses in Syria, have slaughtered “scores of civilians,” including women and children, in the once predominantly Christian town of Qaryatayn.
The victims were either shot or beheaded. One town resident described the Islamic State jihadis as “monsters,” which they certainly are. The resident went on: “These are people who don’t know God, they don’t know anything. They killed children and women with knives, they beat women, broke their arms.”
Where are the voices and influence of top Christian leaders? Why aren’t they speaking out about the ongoing jihadi brutalities against Christians and other minorities because of their faith? Where are the Pope, the World Council of Churches, and Western leaders who preach tolerance, harmony and diversity? The foremost voices of influence are not advocating for these Christians. Nor are they opening their borders to the most brutalized victims of this jihadi intolerance. Why? Because it would be “Islamophobic” to cast light on these atrocities.
The inconvenient truth is that such violence (including mass rapes of infidel women and girls) are sanctioned in Islamic doctrine. Not all Muslims practice this, but such abuses are widespread globally, affecting millions, and Western leaders remain largely petrified and afraid to address this fact for fear of being called “racist,” “Islamophobic,” and into
Islamic State jihadists are now also quickly increasing their presence in the West, as they return enraged and driven by a desire vengeance for their losses in Syria and Iraq. They are flooding Britain in the tens of thousands; flocking to the US despite bans; and holding training sessions in the Caribbean, particularly Trinidad, where they have vowed to attack tourists during the Christmas season.

“ISIS Slaughters Scores of Civilians, Including Children, in Revenge Killing at Christian Town”, by Stoyan Zaimov, Christian Post, October 24, 2017:
The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, however, which regularly reports on terror attacks and the civil war in the country, said that at least 128 people were executed by IS. Most of the bodies were apparently found dumped in farms and ditches.
International Christian Concern noted that Qaryatayn was once a predominantly Christian town, though most believers fled when IS first captured it back in 2015.
The town has been captured and retaken back and forth by Syrian and IS forces on a number of occasions, though Christians returning home in November 2016 were relieved to find that the famous relics of fourth century saint Mar Elian survived despite IS destroying his monastery.
“After the destruction of the monastery, we thought his relics were lost, but instead we were able to find them. This gave us great consolation,” Father Jacques Mourad, a priest who was previously captured by IS, said at the time.
He added that Christians are looking forward to “placing the bones of Mar Elian back in the places where they were kept, and to pray again around that relics.”
Abdullah AbdulKarim, a former resident of Qaryatayn, said that the latest slaughter was revenge killing specifically targeting people and their relatives who IS accused of collaborating with government forces.
“They came into town with a hit list,” the former resident said.
AbdulKarim added that the militants went door to door for three weeks hunting down individuals……

Does the Rev. Steve Bailey think that once it abdicates its own cultural identity, Britain will have any ability to stand up to jihadis and Sharia supremacists?
Most likely, he has never given that a moment’s thought. He no doubt assumes that Islam is a Religion of Peace, and that if we show enough good will and provide enough money to the Tiny Minority of Extremists among Muslims, they will be integrated into British society, and everyone will march together into the glorious multicultural future.

“Vicar bans Onward Christian Soldiers hymn from Remembrance Sunday service in case it offends non-Christians,” by Amie Gordon, Mailonline, October 27, 2017:
A vicar has banned the rousing Onward Christian Soldiers hymn from a Remembrance Sunday service ‘in case it offends non-Christians’.
Furious members of a Royal British Legion club are now planning to boycott the service at St Peter’s Church in Oadby, Leicestershire after the Reverend Steve Bailey banned the hymn.
Participants march into the church to the traditional hymn at the end of the service every year.
But RBL members claim this year the vicar vetoed the hymn because people at the service would not necessarily be Christian.
Pete Green, chairman of the Oadby Royal British Legion club, said: ‘It is absolutely unbelievable. I have been going to Remembrance Services in Oadby since 1967, and Onward, Christian Soldiers has been sung ever year apart from one.
‘That was a few years ago, when another vicar tried to ban it. There was uproar then, and there is uproar now.
‘I’m disgusted, to be honest. As a result of the vicar’s decision I’m refusing to enter the church. I’m just going to lay a wreath.
‘We had hoped he might change his mind, but he is adamant it won’t be sung. He has refused point-blank. He says it is because we live in a multi-faith society – but people of all faiths serve in the British military, and have died for this country in wartime.
‘We also have many different religions within our 400 members here, and no-one has ever complained to me about it. The whole thing is quite upsetting really.’
Mr Green, 71, added: ‘Every year we lay our wreathes in Oadby, then walk half-a-mile or so to the church and walk in to Onward, Christian Soldiers. It is tradition, and I don’t see why he has to change it.
‘I’m hoping it will be changed back for next year. Sadly I think the church might be half-empty for the service this year – people really do feel that strongly about it.’
Onward, Christian Soldiers is a 19th-century English hymn which was adopted by the Salvation Army as its favourite processional.
The words were written by Sabine Baring-Gould in 1865, and the music composed by Arthur Sullivan in 1871.
The theme is taken from references in the New Testament to the Christian being a soldier for Christ.
Ramanlal Anand, a Hindu member of the legion, said he was ‘shocked’ when he heard the song had been banned.
The 77-year-old added: ‘I couldn’t understand it. I don’t see why anyone would have a problem with it at all.’
Ian Thorpe, 61, vice-chairman of the Oadby club, said: ‘I am not aware of a single complaint ever being made about the hymn being sung. If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it.
‘I have been attending that service since I was a child, and can always remember it being sung. Everyone here is very annoyed. It’s political correctness gone mad really.
‘If we went to a mosque we would not expect them to change their service to suit us, we would respect their traditions.
‘Its been sung by the legion since 1921 and its been part of the service since at least 1967.
‘The parade has people from all nationalities and backgrounds, from Sikhs to Hindus, and bikers, and each one of them is proud to stand there and sing this hymn.
‘We’re a multicultural town and proud of it but this is tradition and to change that out of fear of offending someone is ridiculous.
‘We know the hymn isn’t about soldiers of war, it was written before the wars, but it is symbolic and we should be able to sing it.
‘It is simply to honour the fallen and one family is planning to stand outside the church to sing it anyway, and I think many people will join in defiance.
‘Its just one man’s decision which has gone against the will of most people, from various religions, who all think we should be allowed to sing the hymn.’
In a statement issued by the Diocese of Leicester, Rev Steve Bailey said: ‘We agreed the change in hymn with the Oadby Royal British Legion who run this major civic event because members of the community from a wide range of cultural backgrounds attend this parade, service and laying of wreaths at the war memorial.
‘It is because the legion’s committee recognised that people from different faiths served in the Armed Forces that we will be singing All People That On Earth Do Dwell instead of Onwards Christian Soldiers….

Prophecy Newswatch  Oct. 27, 2017

Vice President Mike Pence announced Wednesday night that President Trump has ordered the State Department to shut off funding for “ineffective” United Nations programs to help persecuted Christians in the Middle East, saying the administration will take over those efforts directly.
“From this day forward, America will provide support directly to persecuted communities through USAID,” Mr. Pence said at the In Defense of Christians annual solidarity dinner in Washington. “We will no longer rely on the United Nations alone to assist persecuted Christians and minorities in the wake of genocide and the atrocities of terrorist groups.”
Saying Christians have been victims of a genocide at the hands of the Islamic State across the Middle East, Mr. Pence said the “sad reality” is that the U.N. spends about $1 billion per year on humanitarian aid in the region that doesn’t help Christians enough.
“While faith-based groups with proven track records and deep roots in these communities are more than willing to assist, the United Nations too often denies their funding requests,” Mr. Pence said. “My friends, those days are over. This is the moment. Now is the time. And America will support these people in their hour of need.”
The vice president said the U.S. will “stand with those who suffer for their faith because that’s what Americans have always done because the common bond of our humanity demands a strong response.”
“And so as a nation, we pledge to support them in these trying times, and every day — every day — I know the American people offer forth a chorus of prayers for these communities from our hearts to the heart of heaven,” he said.
Mr. Pence told faith leaders of various religious groups that the Obama administration “devoted well over a billion dollars in humanitarian aid to the Middle East, but routed the lion’s share through programs run by the United Nations.”
“Yet the United Nations has too often failed to help the most vulnerable communities, especially religious minorities,” he said. “The result has been that countless people continue to suffer and struggle needlessly.”
The vice president said the U.N. claims that more than 160 projects are in Christian areas, “but for a third of those projects, there are no Christians to help.”
 Trump Pulls UN Funding, Gives It to Faith Based Orgs Helping Persecuted Christians
 Trump Pulls UN Funding, Gives It to Faith-Based Orgs Helping Persecuted Christians In a speech Wednesday night, Vice President Mike Pence announced that the Trump administration “will no longer rely” solely on the United Nations to disperse funds meant to aid Christians being persecuted in the Middle East. Pence made the remarks in Washington at the In Defense of Christians’ annual Solidarity Dinner for Christians in the Middle East gala. According to the Washington Examiner, the Obama administration relied on the United Nations to disperse over $1 billion in funding meant for humanitarian aid in the Middle East. “My friends, those days are over,” Pence said. Instead, the pulled humanitarian funding will now go to faith-based organizations to distribute. TRENDING: Smug Lib Exec Fired After Uploading Vid of Himself Bullying Chick-fil-A Employee “Our fellow Christians and all who are persecuted in the Middle East should not have to rely on multinational institutions when America can help them directly,” Pence said. From now on, the United States Agency for International Development will administer the relief, Pence said. “Tonight, it is my privilege to announce President Trump has ordered the State Department to stop funding ineffective relief efforts at the United Nations and from this day forward, America will provide support directly to persecuted communities through USAID,” he said. The audience greeted the announcement with a sustained round of applause. “The United States will work hand-in-hand from this day forward with faith-based groups and private organizations to help those who are persecuted for their faith,” Pence said. “This is the moment. Now is the time. “And America will support these people in their hour of need.” Let’s face facts: The United Nations is not the most effective organization when it comes to distributing aid to certain groups. One of those groups is made up of persecuted Christians, who aren’t high on the priority list at the U.N. Then, why would you leave any of these decisions in the hands of an organization that’s vehemently anti-Israel and anti-American? The Trump administration is making the right decision here — and the more money pulled from the U.N.’s more ineffectual efforts, the better.

 Gorka: Deep State Withholding of JFK Files 
“Stinks to High Heaven”

Trump blamed for keeping documents secret despite being furious about it

Former Deputy Assistant to the president Sebastian Gorka says the deep state’s move to withhold many of the JFK files “stinks to high heaven,” and that Donald Trump had nothing to do with it.
2,800 records relating to the assassination of John F. Kennedy were released by the National Archives yesterday, but more have been held back and will be reviewed during a 180-day period. According to Trump confidant Roger Stone, CIA director Mike Pompeo is responsible for the documents being kept secret.
Gorka said it was “fake news” that Trump had any role in ‘covering-up’ the release of the documents, telling host Lou Dobbs, “This is nothing to do with President Trump, this is the FBI and the CIA requesting to redact some of the documents.”
“To hell with them, I mean that seriously, to hell with them,” responded Dobbs, asking, “Why should we or the president or any administration put up” with intelligence agencies keeping the documents secret for so long.
“There’s only two reasons you would do that redaction right now, the reasons are you protect active operations or you protect sources and methods – neither of those can be true 50 years later – so what is it? Something embarrassing,” remarked Gorka, adding, “It really stinks to high heaven.”
According to reports, Trump is apparently furious that the remaining documents were not released.
A White House official told CNN Trump was, “unhappy with the level of redactions” and that the agencies were “not meeting the spirit of the law.”
“JFK Files are being carefully released. In the end there will be great transparency. It is my hope to get just about everything to public!” Trump tweeted this morning.
