Army veteran avoids prison sentence after brutal attack on gay couple

Lambert Borgardt was sentenced this week over a 2012 attack on Andrew Oppleman and Nick Soret. Mr Oppleman lost five teeth in the attack, while  Mr Soret was left with a fractured nose.
The men were targeted by Borgardt during the city’s Pride parade – but KXAN reports a grand jury declined to charge him with a hate crime. He instead pleaded guilty to two counts of aggravated assault.
A judge sentenced Borgardt to 10 years deferred adjudication (probation), with 200 hours of community service – but he will serve no prison time unless he re-offends.

The 30-year-old had apologized to his victims, saying: “I apologize from the bottom of my heart, and I’ll do whatever it takes, whatever I can, whatever can work to pay you guys back for that.”
However, Mr Oppleman said: “I feel like it was an apology for the situation he’s in rather than a direct apology for what he did and why he did it.”
Borgardt’s attorney Bill Hines said: “We’re pleased that the judge did the difficult work of balancing the really serious injuries with the incredible lifetime of honor and service [Borgardt] had in the military.”

There is still a charge pending against Borgardt, who could see his sentence increased over the attack.

Battle Lines Drawn In Florida Over Gay Marriage Ruling

Florida is preparing to begin issuing marriage licenses next month to gay and lesbian couples after the Supreme Court refused to delay implementation of a federal judge's ruling striking down Florida's ban on gay marriage. But the state continues to argue that gay couples will only be allowed to marry in the one county named in the lawsuit.
The Supreme Court's decision not to intervene in Florida is noteworthy because it is the first case in which the high court has denied a stay in a case challenging a state marriage ban before a federal appeals court has weighed in. (Though an appeals court has declined to stay the ruling.)

In a statement issued late Friday, Attorney General Pam Bondi appeared to be digging in her heels on which counties may begin issuing marriage licenses to gay couples after January 5, when the current stay expires.
“Regardless of the ruling it has always been our goal to have uniformity throughout Florida until the final resolution of the numerous challenges to the voter-approved constitutional amendment on marriage,” Bondi said.
The Florida Association of Court Clerks and Comptrollers issued a statement on Tuesday backing Bondi's claim and warned clerks that the issuance of an improper marriage license is a misdemeanor offense.
Lawyers representing the plaintiffs have repeatedly said that the ruling applies statewide.
A county that wants to continue enforcing the ban would face a steep incline in federal court after the Supreme Court's decision.
Activists on Friday said that they were prepared to sue each of the state's remaining 66 counties, if necessary.
Attorney Carrington Mead told First Coast News: “I think that if what they want is for each clerk to be sued, then we should accommodate them.”
Nancy K. Brodzki, a family lawyer in Coral Springs, tweeted on Saturday: “I'm ready to file suit against any and all clerks of court who refuse to issue marriage licenses!”
How many clerks are willing to risk costly litigation to delay issuing marriage licenses to gay couples remains to be seen.
Florida's 3-day waiting period means that the first gay couples will tie the knot on January 10.

I know other sites have been reporting that state AG Pam Bondi has conceded after the Supreme Courts decision, but doesn't look like the bitch is giving up to me.

Poland rejects gay civil unions for a third time

Polish lawmakers has voted against putting a gender-neutral civil unions bill on the agenda of this parliamentary session.
MPs on Wednesday (17 December) voted down the bill proposed by the Your Movement party by 235 ballots to 185, with 18 abstentions.
This is the third time parliament has rejected the legislation, which was first introduced in 2012. In January 2013, a draft bill for same-sex civil partnerships was thrown out by just 17 votes.
The bill includes a range of benefits which currently are only granted to married heterosexual couples, including protections and responsibilities, inheritance, pension funds, notary, and medical rights. Joint tax benefits and adoption rights are not included in the bill. Currently there is no legal recognition of same-sex couples in Poland. Article 18 of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland (1997) defines ‘marriage’ as a union of a man and a woman.

Church that fired gay music director closing down after congregation quits

From Pink News:
The First United Methodist Church in Alexandria, Indiana, sacked music director Adam Fraley in January after nearly six years with the church.
Mr Fraley – who has a male partner – said his sexual orientation had not been an issue before, but after a new pastor took over, he was pressured to resign and was eventually sacked.
Less than a year later, the church has taken the decision to close – citing financial problems and falling attendance, after the congregation walked out en masse in protest at the sacking.

Pastor David Mantor blamed a “downward spiral” at the publisher, saying: “This is a problem that’s going on everywhere, and that’s why we’re closing.”
Of the mass walkout – which reportedly lost as much as 80 percent of the congregation – Mr Mantor claimed: “This closure is not due to that situation whatsoever.”
“My wife and I have been involved in ministry for years and years. We will follow where the Lord leads us.”

The Church will close on December 31.

That Perfect Moment When A Sub Should List His Complaints

Anti-gay Pastor Busted For Groping Man In Park

Gaylard Williams leads a church in Seymour, Indiana, which preaches that homosexuality is a sin. This week, the 59-year-old pastor was arrested for allegedly approaching a man parked at a lake, squeezing his genitals and asking to perform oral sex. The man told the pastor he was 'barking up the wrong tree.' The man took down the pastor's license plate and called police. Williams told police he was in the area looking for a friend who goes fishing there, according to WLKY.
Gay pornography was also later found inside the pastor's car. Williams told police it was not his porn, that he was taking it back to someone else. Williams has been charged with battery and made an appearance at Jackson County Superior Court this week and is currently free on a $355 bond. The Praise Cathedral Church of God states of homosexuality:
'We will engage in those activities which glorify God in our body and which avoid the fulfillment of the lust of the flesh.' The church is also against same-sex marriage.

Salvation Army Accused Of Discriminating Against Its Gay Officers

A report published Thursday accuses The Salvation Army of discriminating against its LGBT officers.
The Salvation Army in recent months launched a campaign in which it denies allegations of discrimination against the LGBT community.
“The Christian charity discriminates against LGBT people, but it doesn't want anyone to know about it,” wrote Graham Gremore in publishing two internal documents that appear to contradict the organization's public message.
Last month, the Salvation Army posted a video in which it denied that it discriminates based on sexual orientation or gender identity.
“For the past few years during the holiday season, a lot of chatter on social media was saying the Salvation Army was anti-gay and discriminates against people in the LGBT community. I felt we needed to be proactive on this,” Lt. Colonel Ron Busroe, the group's national spokesman, said of the campaign.
The organization, however, has a long history of opposing LGBT rights and even supporting therapies that seek to turn gay people straight. In 2004, the group threatened to close operations in New York City unless it was exempted from offering benefits to the partners of its gay employees. In various countries, the Salvation Army has opposed repeal of laws which criminalized gay sex (New Zealand) or prohibited the discussion and/or “promotion” of homosexuality (Britain).
In 2001, The Washington Post reported the “Bush administration is working with the nation's largest charity, the Salvation Army, to make it easier for government-funded religious groups to engage in hiring discrimination against homosexuals, according to an internal Salvation Army document.”
The document “defines the charity's objectives as making sure states and localities can't 'impose the category of sexual orientation to the list of anti-discrimination protections' or mandate 'equal benefits to domestic partnerships' unless religious non-profits are exempt from such provisions.”
Appearing in 2012 on Talking Liberally, Army Major George Hood told host Stephanie Miller that discriminating against gay men and lesbians would violate the organization's mission. Less than a week later, Hood, the group's chief spokesman at the time, told the Chicago Tribune that being gay was a “personal choice” that goes “against the will of God.” Miller, who is openly gay, later issued an apology for not challenging Hood's statements on her show.
One of the documents published Thursday is a 4-page memo from midwest Commissioner Paul Seiler dated February 21, 2014 and emailed to officers in the Salvation Army's Central Territory, which serves Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa and Indiana.
In his “not for public use” memo, Seiler reiterates the group's opposition to marriage equality and expectations that unmarried officers “be celibate in their expression of their sexuality.”
“Leadership roles in denominational activities such as teaching or holding local officer roles require certain adherence to consistently held spiritual beliefs,” the letter states. “This would apply to any conduct inconsistent with Salvation Army beliefs and would include same-sex sexual relationships.”
Siler also states that Salvation Army officers cannot marry gay couples or attend the wedding of a same-sex couple in uniform, and that doing so may result in “termination.”
Jennifer Byrd, director of communications for the Salvation Army, told Gremore in an email that the organization “serves 30 million people a year without discrimination” and “our non-discriminatory employment practices have been overlooked, misconstrued or misunderstood in recent years.”
“We are not trying to argue with the Salvation Army's theological views,”Gremore wrote. “It can believe what it wants to believe. The problem is, these beliefs, which are shared privately among SA insiders, are at direct odds with the organization's public message, which states, in blanket terms, that it does not discriminate based on sexual orientation.”
