Christian Couple Will Divorce if Gay Marriage Passes in Australia

At this point, if I found irrefutable evidence that Christians were indeed right, I think I would choose a cozy fiery hell over spending an eternity with these douchebags.

A Christian couple with nothing better to do has said they’ll get divorced if same-sex marriage becomes legal in Australia.

Nick and Sarah Jensen have been married for 10 years but are apparently prepared to end their decade-long marital run if gay people are granted marriage equality. Mr. Jensen is the director of a conservative public policy group and made the announcement in a letter to the Canberra CityNews.

“My wife and I, as a matter of conscience, refuse to recognise the government’s regulation of marriage if its definition includes the solemnisation of same sex couples.”

In an interview with Fairfax Media that you can listen to here, Jensen went on to say that he felt expanding marriage equality to include same-sex couples would lead to polygamy.

‘Out of control’ Texas officer who threw girl to ground at pool party resigns


From The Guardian:

Eric Casebolt, the Texas police officer who threw a black girl to the ground and waved a gun at other teenagers during a pool party incident that quickly went viral and led to protests, has resigned from the police force in McKinney, Texas.

Officials were quick to place full blame on Casebolt as “out of control”, seeking to quell international attention on this small Dallas suburb after video footage spread and protesters descended upon the town at a time when relations between police and communities of color are under increased scrutiny.

“Our policies, our training, our practice doesn’t support his actions,” McKinney police chief Greg Conley said at a press conference. He described Casebolt’s actions as “indefensible” – even though Casebolt had been accused of racial profiling before, according to a withdrawn civil rights lawsuit filed against the police department.

Casebolt will retain his pension and benefits.
