PHILADELPHIA, PA–He was the only one who didn’t run. Now Darrin Manning may never father children after his encounter with a police officer earlier this month.

While on his way to a basketball game after school, the straight-A student and his teammates had an encounter with officer Thomas Purcell. Apparently one of the teammates may have said a snide remark to the officer, who then approached them. The boys ran, but Manning stopped and stayed.“I didn’t do anything wrong,” he said to Philly.com .

What happened next is hard to believe. Darrin was handcuffed, frisked, and his genitals were pulled and twisted with such force by the female officer that they literally tore off.

“I felt her reach, and she grabbed my butt. And then she grabbed and squeezed again and pulled down. And that’s when I heard something pop, like I felt it POP,” Manning said.

Manning is being charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and resisting arrest. The charges have outraged Manning’s mother, Ikea Coney.“He’s not a bad child. He’s not in the streets.” Manning’s principal, Veronica Joyner, said Manning is a model student with no history of wrongdoing.“I believe he was sexually assaulted,” she said.

You don't know the difference between a constitutional right and a legislative law.

But back to the baker:

""Indeed, the Colorado baker who has kicked this whole debate off by refusing to make a wedding cake for a gay couple was happy to sit down with the couple to discuss their order, and even offered to bake brownies for the reception. However, he declined to bake the wedding cake itself because he felt that that constituted participating in the substance of the proceedings, in contravention to his religious beliefs.

The judge in the case included in his ruling the factual finding “Phillips [the baker] believes that if he uses his artistic talents to participate in same-sex weddings by creating a wedding cake, he will be displeasing God and acting contrary to the teachings of the Bible.”""

Free people should be allowed free expression and free association

by Donna Rachel Edmunds

Yesterday the editor of The Libertarian Republic Austin Petersen wrote about Julie Borowski, the ‘Token Libertarian girl’ and her video about businesses who discriminate against gay couples. Borowski has come to the conclusion that businesses should be allowed to refuse service on the grounds that businesses run by bigoted owners would quickly fold under weight of public opinion.

The libertarian angle is, in reality, much more interesting than that.

I agree with her conclusion in general, but in this specific case her reasoning rests on a fallacy: that business owners who refuse to deliver goods or services for gay weddings are bigoted or motivated solely by hatred for gay people."""

Incredulous, instead of harassing gay men who are not child molesters why not go to Muslim sites? Momo married a 9 year old girl and many Muslim men believe this is quite normal:
Raped to death, in brief. This is a practice widespread in many of the most backward muslim countries, and in certain parts of India. I don’t know how the estimates below are generated, there is likely some advocacy in those numbers, but child marriage is real and little girls do suffer horribly from it:
Al Nahar, Lebanon, has reported that an eight year old child bride died in Yemen on her wedding night after suffering internal injuries due to sexual trauma. Human rights organizations are calling for the arrest of her husband who was five times her age.
The death occurred in the tribal area of Hardh in northwestern Yemen, which borders Saudi Arabia. This brings even more attention to the already existing issue of forced child marriages in the Middle Eastern region.
“According to the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), between 2011 and 2020, more than 140 million girls will become child brides. Furthermore, of the 140 million girls who will marry before the age of 18, 50 million will be under the age of 15.”
It is reported that over a quarter of Yemen’s young girls are married before the age of 15. Not only do they lose access to health and education, these child brides are commonly subjected to physical, emotional and sexual violence in their forced marriage.
When muslim men lust after and then marry child brides, they are only emulating their “magnificent” prophet. Mohammed married a 9 year old girl. That is why this practice is so difficult to stamp out. A law was passed in Yemen a few years ago to make this kind of marriage illegal, but more radical islamists came back to power and they abrogated it. It is very likely there are millions of little girls presently suffering under these situations in muslim countries. I read the story of one 11 year old Afghani girl who bled for many months after giving birth to a child at her ridiculously young age. Of course, she received essentially no medical care, and had to continue slaving away for hew husband/owner in their mud hut. Then there is the epidemic of boy rape among Pashtun men in Afghanistan and Pakistan – which our sick goverment doesn’t allow our troops to do anything about, even when they catch these depraved men in the act.
http://veneremurcernui.wordpress.com/2013/09/...
check out the picture of the 8 year old bride.
You have gone off the deep end again. This discussion has absolutely nothing to do with that case. No one is going to defend those marriages so please quit pretending anyone involved in this discussion would.

incredulous: Even deliveries are high risk. There are reasons minors are not 'free' to do what they want. It is not authoritarian, it is about being a responsible parent. Teens should be given the ability to make decisions and take responsibility for themselves but this is a gradual process AND according to each child.
ALAN: I had a younger brother, raised in the same family who was not free to invite friends over when my parents were out for the evening and get drunk with his friends, but he did so anyway. What should my parents have done, put him in prison? But bars on his windows and locks on his doors? He was brought up right, he knew right from wrong and he did wrong. He did not have the maturity to make decisions he made his decisions with his immaturity and no one was going to tell him any different. I was glad when he was arrested and went to jail, he was out of control and I am glad he died when he was 25 years old because I think the rest of us are alive today because he died.
incredulous: Your gay cousin was abused which could be a very good reason he is gay. The abuser was also gay and it sounds filled with self hatred.Perhaps that abuser was abused as well. Maybe mental illness is familial.
ALAN: My gay cousin was always gay as far as I can remember, we just didn't know what it was called but we always knew he was different. He was abused by his Christian father not by some homosexual. If my uncle was gay he sure did a great job hiding it. He was an homophobic as you are in here. That is why my cousin asked to live at our house, his Christian raised father was abusing him and driving him crazy.
incredulous: I have to question why you were taking showers together in high school because that seems very odd.
ALAN:Odd? We took showers every day with 60 guys, it was California state law that after 50 minutes of P.E. you had 10 minutes to shower and put your street clothes back on. It was the law. If you got caught not taking a shower you would be forced to take a shower and you would get detention after school. I only went to the public school 3 years out of the 6 but most kids took showers with 60 to 100 other boys for 6 years.
Do you read what I write or does your very homophobic imagination color it all?
Geez, your upbringing certainly seems colorful. Your parents certainly were not very informed because giving alcohol so young is unhealthy and irresponsible....even the French realize the hazards of this practice. I have no doubt your brother had issues with alcohol abuse when your parents gave you wine when you should have been drinking milk. You were talking about taking showers with your cousin at home which was why he had access to touching you during those showers. Certainly, if your incestuous cousin touched you in front of 60 other boys, I would think there would be some discussions about this with your parents and the school.

So your uncle was not sexually abusing your gay cousin? Either way, there was clearly some mental illness in the family. Your cousin's gayness was simply an expression of this familial trait. Homosexuality is oftentimes a result of abuse.

They should be able to serve anyone they want it's a private business. Just like I don't have to let just anyone into my home.
So what part of the Bible is a Christian business following when they refuse service to gays and lesbians? There are 7 passages that speak of same sex activity in the Bible. Of course the most serious one is: Leviticus 20:13 ESV
If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them.

Notice it says they shall be put to death but it doesn't say WHO can do that. It also doesn't say ANYTHING about how others are to treat these sinners. Let’s look at another source often used as well to justify discrimination against gays and lesbians and then see what else it says. The book of Romans is often used to say that God views same sex activity as a sin.

Romans 1:26-28 ESV
“For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error. And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.”

But that passage says nothing about how others should treat those who sin. The answers are found later on in Chapter 13.

Romans 13:1-5 ESV
Submission to the Authorities
“13 Let every person be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and those that exist have been instituted by God. 2 Therefore whoever resists the authorities resists what God has appointed, and those who resist will incur judgment. 3 For rulers are not a terror to good conduct, but to bad. Would you have no fear of the one who is in authority? Then do what is good, and you will receive his approval, 4 for he is God's servant for your good. But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer. 5 Therefore one must be in subjection, not only to avoid God's wrath but also for the sake of conscience.”

Now I am sure that these people honestly want to follow their faith. Yet they are not following the instructions given. In fact they ignore a previous warning given at the very beginning of the text.
Romans 2
God's Righteous Judgment
“2 Therefore you have no excuse, O man, every one of you who judges. For in passing judgment on another you condemn yourself, because you, the judge, practice the very same things. 2 We know that the judgment of God rightly falls on those who practice such things. 3 Do you suppose, O man—you who judge those who practice such things and yet do them yourself—that you will escape the judgment of God? 4 Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? 5 But because of your hard and impenitent heart you are storing up wrath for yourself on the day of wrath when God's righteous judgment will be revealed.
6 He will render to each one according to his works: 7 to those who by patience in well-doing seek for glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life; 8 but for those who are self-seeking[a] and do not obey the truth, but obey unrighteousness, there will be wrath and fury. 9 There will be tribulation and distress for every human being who does evil, the Jew first and also the Greek, 10 but glory and honor and peace for everyone who does good, the Jew first and also the Greek. 11 For God shows no partiality.”

Seems to me we need to remember the old adage about where the horse should be placed. Nowhere in any of these passages does it tell these people to do what they are claiming it tells them to do.

I'm not sure where your head is at. But from what I know about myself and from what I have learned from other people, a person's sexuality develops very early.

To say that minors are not allowed to understand facts about human sexuality is a recipe for disaster as is evident today.

What we have is another stage mother who can't grip reality:

The fact is that ballet requires certain physical requirements, not just for aesthetics but for actual performance. She will need to learn toe, which usually ends the careers of many aspiring ballerinas who aren't packing all their weight on 1 square inch. Many girls are injured every year trying to gain the technique.

The biggest problem or her case is that the girl wasn't damaged by it; she was happier in her old school anyway.

You Can't Say That! The Growing Threat to Civil Liberties from Anti-Discrimination Laws
Almost Anyone Might Find Himself in Trouble for His Speech or Thoughts
JULY 07, 2010 by GEORGE C. LEEF
The chiseling away of constitutional limits on government power is a topic familiar to readers of these pages. For a long time the First Amendment’s prohibition against laws that infringe freedom of speech remained relatively untouched by people who would like to use state power to silence their opponents. But as David Bernstein, a George Mason University law professor, reports in You Can’t Say That! the First Amendment is now taking some heavy blows.
http://www.fee.org/the_freeman/detail/you-can...
The Fourteenth Amendment only applies to government.
The book is loaded with cases that illustrate the author’s concerns. For example, when the San Francisco Ballet’s preprofessional school rejected applicant Fredrika Keefer because she did not have the body type expected for ballerinas, her mother sued on the basis of a city ordinance banning discrimination based on weight and height. Even though Fredrika was able to dance elsewhere, the irate mother took the matter before the San Francisco Human Rights Commission. At the time of the book’s publication, the case was still pending, but Bernstein skewers the whole controversy:“Properly interpreted, the Constitution’s protection of free expression from government interference bars San Francisco from legislating ballet standards.”

Anti-Gay Activist Lisa Biron Found Guilty of Child Pornography After Video Taping Daughter
By Ashley Davis, Fri, January 11, 2013

Lisa Biron, a New Hampshire lawyer who worked with an anti-gay Christian-right organization, has been found guilty of child pornography after she videotaped her own daughter having sex with two men on several occasions.

According to Salon, Biron, 43, is facing a minimum sentence of 25 years after she was convicted by a jury on Thursday. It took the jury less than an hour to deliberate.

In November, Biron was arrested by the FBI and accused of eight felony counts after she videotaped a 14-year-old girl having sex with men. Later, the girl was identified as Biron's daughter.

Biron also videotaped herself having sex with her daughter.

On Biron's Facebook page, she claims the Bible is her favorite book and that she worked for Alliance Defending Freedom.

Alliance Defending Freedom is a "servant ministry" seeking to transform the legal system "for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, and marriage and family."

The group is blatantly anti-gay, and issues "dire warnings" about "the homosexual agenda," particularly in their book, authored by president Alan Sears an senior director Craig Osten.

In the book, they explain that the "homosexual agenda" will destroy religious liberty and free speech. One chapter claims that pedophilia on college campuses is a result of homosexuality, and that homosexuality and pedophilia are linked.

As Biron's case broke out and she was arrested, ADF removed all traces of her from their website and Facebook page. They even clamed in a "CBS News" report that Biron never worked for them.

According to an LGBT blog called Joe.My.God, ADF is continuing to remove her name from their site and Facebook, and is deleting any mention of her name by users on their page.

While it is true that Biron might not have been a formal employee of ADF, she did participate and was a member in their "Honor Corps," according to John Aravosis at Americablog.

The Honor Corps is a group that recognizes allied attorneys who participate in 450 hours of pro bono services for the group. Those who become members receive ADF perks, like referrals, job opportunities, and access to resume postings.

In March of 2011, she was listed by the ADF as an "Allied Attorney Success Story."

You assume facts not in evidence. Jim Crow laws forced business leaders who did not want to discriminate to discriminate. If you get the government out of the way the problem is solved. Government just replaced one bad law with another.
