Posted: 17 Dec 2017 12:30 PM PST
The City of Palm Springs, California has sworn in a man who identifies as a woman, as well as a woman who identifies as bisexual, making its city council all-“LGBT” as its other three members identify as homosexual. Lisa Middleton, a man who identifies as a woman (pictured), and Christy Holstege, an attorney who identifies as bisexual, were both sworn in on Wednesday after being elected last month.
They join Mayor Robert Moon and Councilman Geoff Kors, who both are “married” to men, and Councilman J.R. Roberts, who likewise identifies as homosexual. Holstege and Middleton won with 30 percent of the vote, as compared to the 13 percent received by the nearest candidate.

|DEVELOPING: Power outage cripples Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson airport
Posted: 17 Dec 2017 12:18 PM PST
A power outage at Atlanta’s Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, the world’s busiest airport, is leaving thousands of passengers stranded and planes grounded.

|Growing Number Of Americans Ditching Jesus During Christmas
Posted: 16 Dec 2017 07:04 PM PST
If there ever was a “war on Christmas” in America, Santa may have won. Nine in 10 U.S. adults celebrate the holiday, according to the Pew Research Center. However, that celebration is shifting in a secular direction. And a growing number of Christians discount key elements of the biblical Nativity story. Just three years ago, 51% of U.S. adults said Christmas for them is more a religious holiday than a cultural one.
But that has slipped to 46% in the new Pew survey, released Tuesday. Neither does this trend trouble most people. Only 32% say it “bothers” them even somewhat. President Trump’s demand that Americans all say “Merry Christmas,” which drew cheers at his rallies, now draws shrugs from most U.S. adults: 52% say it doesn’t matter how they are greeted in stores and businesses, and 32% say they prefer to hear “Merry Christmas.” READ MORE
|Atheist Group Opposes Politician Bell-Ringing for the Salvation Army
Posted: 16 Dec 2017 06:53 PM PST
Atheists have reportedly set their sights on a Connecticut lawmaker, taking aim at his decision to volunteer as a Salvation Army bellringer and claiming that his actions violate the separation of church and state. State Sen. George Logan, a Republican, recently found himself drawing the ire of the Freedom From Religion Foundation, a Wisconsin-based atheist activist group, over his decision to volunteer as a bellringer outside of a Walmart in Naugatuck, Connecticut. Why, you ask? The Salvation Army is a Christian organization and,
thus, the FFRF took issue, writing a letter to Logan that encouraged him to “consider supporting only secular charities in the future,” The Connecticut Post reported. According to the activist group, Logan should do this so that he can “ensure that representatives do not give the appearance of promoting an overtly Christian mission.” Additionally, the atheist group said that such an action would “prevent citizens from feeling ostracized by their elected representatives because of their religious beliefs or sexual preference.” READ MORE
|Erdogan warns Muslims may lose Mecca if they fail to hold on to Jerusalem
Posted: 16 Dec 2017 06:39 PM PST
Muslims may lose Mecca and other holy sites if the US decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israeli capital isn’t reversed, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has warned. “If we lose Jerusalem then we won’t be able to protect Medina. If we lose Medina – we will lose Mecca and Kaaba,” Erdogan said in a speech at an award ceremony in Istanbul. Erdogan has been one of the most vocal critics of President Trump’s controversial decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. The Turkish president has
slammed other nations for their “weak” response to the US move. On Saturday, Erdogan urged the UN Security Council to annul Trump’s decision. If the UNSC fails to act on the issue, Turkey will do everything necessary within legal frameworks to fight the US recognition, he promised. “If the [UN Security Council] will not, we will approach relevant authorities within a legal framework,” Erdogan said. “Turkey will not stop defending Palestine or Jerusalem just because Israel wants it to.” READ MORE
|Pentagon secretly set up program to investigate UFOs
Posted: 16 Dec 2017 06:24 PM PST
The Defense Department secretly set up a program ten years ago to investigate unidentified flying objects, or UFOs, at the urging of then-Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, according to new reports. Both The New York Times and the website Politico published stories Saturday revealing the existence of the Pentagon’s now-defunct Advanced Aerospace Threat Identification Program. The New York Times said the UFO program began in 2007, while Politico reported in began in 2009.
According to the reports, Reid, a Nevada Democrat, helped steer money under the program to a donor’s aerospace research company. A Pentagon spokesman said the UFO program ended in 2012, though The New York Times said the Defense Department still investigates potential episodes of unidentified flying objects. “The Advanced Aviation Threat Identification Program ended in the 2012 timeframe,” READ MORE
