Python Inside Toilet bites man's penis in Thailand

As a man this is my worst fear. For as long as I can remember everytime I go pee this is always on my mind. It's why I will not use porta potties and why I will not use others bathrooms. I have no idea where my giant fear came from but I am glad to hear that my struggle for 35 years was not without merit.

A man in Thailand was rushed to hospital after a python bit his penis in a terrifying toilet encounter.

Pastor Larry DuRant Sentenced to 20 Years for Sexually Abusing Children

A jury decided Larry DuRant used his position of power in the church to coerce a teen into sexual activity


A Sumter pastor was found guilty of using his position in the church to sexually assault a teenage girl and now faces 20 years in prison.

A Sumter County jury found Larry DuRant, 61, of Sumter guilty of one count of criminal sexual conduct with a minor, according to a news release from S.C. Attorney General Alan Wilson’s office.

Judge Roger Young sentenced DuRant to 20 years in prison, the maximum sentence.

DuRant, pastor of Word International Ministries at 1010 N. Guignard Drive, used his position of authority as a pastor to sexually assault a minor, the release stated.

DuRant was found guilty of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old female member of his church on multiple occasions.

The victim testified in court, along with three other teens ranging in age from 13 to 18 who say they were assaulted in a similar fashion under the guise of religious reasons between December 2012 and May 2013.

Family members told police DuRant coerced victims into having sex with him several times between 2011 and 2013, convincing the girls it was part of the “healing process” and “private prayer.”

Sumter police said the incidents occurred at the church and at the pastor’s residence.

The S.C. Secretary of State’s database showed Durant registered Word International Ministries in July of 1999. The nonprofit’s status was listed as in “good standing” in the database.

Muslim mob in Egypt strips elderly Christian woman in violent attack

A christian woman's son has a relationship with a muslim woman. To punish the couple a mob of muslim men strip his mother naked and parade her through the streets?
What the hell Egypt? What the hell muslims? It's truly hard to believe that civilization began in this backwards seeming part of the world.
You were a society since time out of memory -- what the hell happened and why did you let it?
If this happened the other way round there would be rioting and wars. Yet there is peace from Christian and turning the other cheek showing mercy in the face of evil, challenging because I'm not sure I could do that!
This is really a shame on humanity ...

Seven Christian homes ransacked and torched following rumours woman’s son had affair with Muslim woman.

S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley signs 20-week abortion ban

I applaud SC Governor Nikki Haley for signing legislation outlawing abortions after 20 weeks in their state. That is good news! It is a step in the right direction and will save lives. We need to pray that ground will continue to be gained and that Roe v. Wade will eventually be overturned in this country. Senator Chip Campsen who voted for the bill said, “I believe that an unborn child is human life and therefore I am compelled to be opposed to abortion.” He is absolutely right—abortion is “taking a human life.” Let Gov. Haley and all of the bold legislators who support this law know that you appreciate their stand in the comments below. All lives matter—born or not yet born.

Only exceptions to the ban are if the mother's life is in jeopardy or a doctor determines the fetus can't survive outside the womb.

Transgender Teacher Claims $60k After Co-Workers Use Wrong Pronoun

Misgendered? A transgender 5th grade teacher in Oregon was awarded $60,000 from the school district after she complained that she had been harassed and “misgendered” by coworkers, despite an official investigation stating differently. The school’s principal emailed the staff new policies which “require that all staff address transgender or gender non-conforming employees with their correct names and pronouns. The email also contained this threat, “If you are found to be in violation of these policies, you will be subject to discipline to and including dismissal.” That’s incredible! Use “correct” pronouns? Doesn’t a person’s DNA or birth certificate count for anything? Shouldn’t fact override fantasy? God created people male and female.

Rev. Scott Morey of Shevlin, Minn gets 33 years in jail for sexual abuse

Minnesota ex-pastor get 33 years for sexually abusing children

May 26, 2016 | UPDATED: 16 hours ago

BAGLEY, Minn. — A former pastor in northwestern Minnesota was sentenced Wednesday to 33 years and 10 months in prison for having sexual contact with children.

The Rev. Scott Morey of Shevlin, Minn., was charged in 2014 with eight first-degree, three second-degree and three fourth-degree criminal sexual conduct charges.

Clearwater County, Minn., Pastor Scott Morey, 43, of Shevlin, was arrested in January of 2015 and charged with multiple counts of felony criminal sexual conduct for acts that allegedly occurred between 2009 and 2014. (Forum News Service)

A jury found the 43-year-old guilty April 20 on 13 of the 14 counts, and he was acquitted on one count of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

At Morey’s sentencing hearing Wednesday afternoon in Clearwater County District Court, the prosecution asked for 44½ years in prison, and the defense countered with 15 years in prison.

Judge Eric Schieferdecker then sentenced Morey to the 33 years and 10 months. He also included a good time contingency, where if Morey successfully completes a sex offender program, he could ultimately spend two-thirds of his sentence in prison, which would be about 22 years.

“In his case, because of the nature and volume of offenses, he’d be on additional release probably for the rest of his life,” Clearwater County Attorney Richard Mollin Jr. said, and he’d be “closely watched” or could be in some lesser form of jail for monitoring.

Mars To Come Closest To Earth In 11 Years

In Roman mythology, ‪#‎Mars‬ was/is the god of War. And I don't know what that means for Earth on May 30th, but somehow I blame Trump for being such an aggressive narcissist that his big head is gravitational-ly(?) pulling Mars closer to our planet. Well, at least that's my working theory.

Mars is approaching its closest point to Earth for 11 years, offering a rare chance for astronomy fans.

Sky watchers will get their best chance in more than a decade to see Mars, as it moves to be just 47.2 million miles from Earth.

Why Are So Many Muslim Refugees in Europe Suddenly Finding Jesus?

The Daily Beast : Why Are So Many Muslim Refugees in Europe Suddenly Finding Jesus?

Whether out of conviction or convenience, thousands of migrants in Europe are converting to Christianity.

AMSTERDAM — Hundreds of Pakistanis and Afghans have been lining up at a local swimming pool in Hamburg, Germany, to be baptized as Christians. In the Netherlands and Denmark, as well, many are converting from Islam to Christianity, and the trend appears to be growing. Indeed, converts are filling up some European churches largely forsaken by their old Christian flocks.

All of which raises a question, not least, for the United States: If American presidential candidate Donald Trump gets elected and bars Muslims from entering the country, as he says he will, would the ban apply to Christians who used to be Muslims? How would one judge the quality of their faith?

For the moment, that quandary is a ways off for U.S. Homeland Security, but in Europe even now the phenomenon is fraught with echoes of the past, problems in the present, and omens for the future. Forced conversions of Muslims and Jews during the Spanish Inquisition were a dark page in Europe’s history. More than a little suspicion surrounds some of the current conversions, seen by some to be cynical bids to improve the chance of getting asylum. And, looking forward, it’s potentially quite dangerous for those who embrace the Gospel to return to homelands where abandoning Islam for another faith can be treated as a capital crime.

Still, many preachers are pleased. The German pastor of the Evangelical-Lutheran church in Berlin calls the conversion phenomenon “a gift from God.” In his modest community a staggering 1,200 Muslims, mainly Afghans and Iranians, converted in just three years.

In Hamburg, where German ARD TV showed the Pakistanis and Afghans lining up to be baptized by the pastor of the Persian Church community, more than 600 people reportedly were received into the congregation.

There is no reliable overall figure for converts in northern Europe, but judging by reports from different media outlets, it is safe to assume the number runs into the thousands, maybe even tens of thousands who say they want the Gospel, “the good news,” offered by Jesus Christ.

One young Iranian woman convert told the German news magazine Stern, “I’ve been looking all my life for peace and happiness, but in Islam, I have not found them,” Another convert told Stern he had found in Christianity an element—love—that was missing from the faith he was brought up in. “In Islam, we always lived in fear,” he said. “Fear God, fear of sin, fear of punishment. But Christ is a God of love.”

India recently launched a "mini space shuttle" for just $14 million. 

India recently launched a "mini space shuttle" for just $14 million. Many people commented, expressing their unhappiness at India investing in space travel while so many of their people live in poverty. The space industry is worth more than a hundred billion dollars worldwide. Most of this is dominated by just a few countries. If India can break into this industry at a lower cost, it could provide a massive stimulus to their economy.

And let's take a look at a few of the things that were more expensive than their latest launch, shall we?

God is a talking God, He is communicating to us non-stop

"Being that God is a talking God, He is communicating to us non-stop, with unrelenting enthusiasm.

Again, the reason we do not perceive the full expression of His Person is that He reveals Himself on wavelengths we have not learned to recognize and receive.

That's why I have abandoned the age old question, 'Why isn't God talking to me?'. I've concluded that such a proficient communicator as God is 'speaking' in a million ways, His voice filling every atom in the universe.

My concern is not that God remains silent, but rather that He's talking to us on so many levels that we do not know how to interpret the spiritual bandwidths through which He communicates." -Larry Randolph (from The Physics of Heaven, Chapter 10)

Boston Muslim inmate PLOTTED TO KILL President Obama: “I wish to fulfill Allah’s wishes”

Prisons are a hotbed of jihad activity. Convert the violent, the broken, the vicious - perfect candidates for Islam.

This CBS report never mentions motive, Islam, jihad until the ninth paragraph. Scrub-a-dub.

“I am a brother in faith, a martyr; and as a martyr I wish to fulfill Allah’s wishes and not to live among infidels. The mujahedeen movement is hard but pure."

An inmate at a Bridgewater prison is being charged with threatening to kill President Barack Obama in a “lone-wolf style” attack.

Target Sales Drop Amid Transgender Promotion, Consumer Boycott, $10 Billion Stock Crash

Target stock is tumbling after they announced a pro-transgender restroom policy allowing men to use women’s bathrooms and changing rooms. Stock value has fallen 20% and shareholder value has lost $10 billion since they began promoting this dangerous policy. According to the media,Target CEO Brian Cornell says it’s due in part to “unfavorable weather trends in the Northeast.” Really? He must be in denial. Wake up corporate America and stockholders—American families clearly do not want this. Over 1.2 million people have signed the online petition to boycott Target stores. This is sending a strong message, and I hope that millions more will sign it. I urge you to sign the petition at this link today:https://www.afa.net/action-…/sign-the-boycott-target-pledge/

Pastor Chris and Anita are back together .

Glory Latest reports suggests that embattled founder of Christ Embassy, Chris Oyakhilome may have settled his differences with his wife, Anita Oyakhilome and are back together again.
According to sources, Pastor Chris and Anita were seen together at a reunion service, hugging and holding hands. Pastor Anita had filed for divorce in April 2014 on the grounds of adultery, a claim which was immediately squashed by Pastor Chris and his lawyers.
A Facebook user who attends Christ Embassy had uploaded a photo on his page with a caption which read " Thank You Jesus. Glory!" , supporting the claim that the popular pastor and his wife are back on track and have chosen to mend their marriage.
However, when Pulse.ng reached out to Christ Embassy via a telephone conversation, the church officials refused to divulge any information concerning the supposed reconciliation.

Grace Baptist Church children's pastor Jason Kennedy arrested for seeking sex with underage girl

Two Tennessee pastors arrested for seeking sex with underage girl

NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Sr. Pastor addresses youth pastor's arrest

WVLT - Knoxville, TN

Two men of God were arrested for seeking sex with a young girl instead of tending to the souls of their flocks.

Jason Kennedy and Zubin Parakh were nabbed in an undercover sting operation in Knoxville, Tenn, after answering an online ad to have sex with an underage prostitute.

Kennedy, a 46-year-old children’s pastor for Grace Baptist Church, and Parakh, a 32-year-old creative pastor at LifeHouse Church, were among 32 men and women arrested by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation in an anti-trafficking operation, the agency said Friday.

A police report from Kennedy’s arrest seen by WVLT said that he had agreed to pay $100 for a half hour with two girls, one of whom was 15.

Two Tennessee pastors have been arrested in a prostitution sting — including LifeHouse Church creative pastor Zubin Parakh.

The Baptist preacher was fired from his position and now faces patronizing prostitution and a trafficking charge that could land him up to 60 years in prison.

“The actions of the children's pastor for which he has been arrested were part of his life outside the church, and we have received no questions or concerns related to his conduct within the church or its ministries,” Kennedy’s church said in a statement.

It added that a background check had been done on him before he arrived two-and-a-half years ago, and said that it was praying for the pastor’s family.

(KNOX COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE)(KNOX COUNTY SHERIFF'S OFFICE)

Grace Baptist Church children's pastor Jason Kennedy (left) and Parakh (right) were both charged with patronizing prostitution and trafficking.

A cached page on the Grace Baptist website said that the man of the cloth is married and has three children.

Parakh, was also charged with trafficking, and like Kennedy, remained in custody as of Saturday morning ahead of hearings on May 31.

The fate of his job was not immediately clear, though his group distanced itself by saying he was only a volunteer.

Grace Baptist Church said that had conducted a background check on Kennedy, and that it had not received any reports of wrongdoing.

(WBIR NEWS/NBC)

References to him were stripped from his parish’s website, which had listed him as a pastor.

A previous page on the church’s site seen by KGW said that he was gifted at music and “committed to seeing lives changed.”

His social media profiles also showcased a number of performances where he sang about God’s love.

TBI’s “Operation Someone Like Me,” the anti-trafficking sting that led to their and others’ arrests made ads on Backpage.com that attracted more than 300 contacts, including more than 24 for an underage listing.

Among the 32 people arrested were men charged with patronizing or promoting prostitution and five women charged with prostitution.

Atmospheric Administration say there is a 75 percent chance El Niño's warm weather patterns will flip to La Niña by fall of 2016

Multiyear weather cycles keep happening, tho, overall, things keep getting gradually warmer. The US west, where most of my friends and me live, may be in for a cooler winter in 2016-17. Then again, emphasis on the word may. Hard to predict.

Last few winters have seemed warmer than usual. Less chance to test out the better heating in my new (as of 2013) apartment.

La Nina also means the likelihood of dryer conditions in California and the Southwest. After this year's "El Nino driven slight reprieve" of rains in Northern California, drought remains a serious threat in the Golden State.

Who knows. From year to year, warm and cool spots shift around via trillions of tons of heat storage in ocean waters, but over the decades, everything gets gradually warmer.

Conditions are looking ripe for the cooler climate pattern to take over in the Pacific.

T. Rex would've had lips, Toronto paleontologist says

So the original Tyrannosauruses may have actually had feathers and lips? So they looked like giant turkeys with lips? How goofy is that? Not so intimidating really.

"The available evidence would suggest that none of these animals - none of the theropod dinosaurs - should have their teeth sticking out of their mouths. They look more ferocious that way but that's probably not real."

A Tyrannosaurus rex may be normally depicted baring dozens of sharp teeth, but a Toronto researcher says the dinosaur likely had lips to cover them.

Reisz says only a few land animals, such as elephants and wild boars, have exposed teeth and these have no enamel.
