‘A Desire Is Born, and Then the Desire Is Passed on to the Child’
Bishop Neophytos Masouras of Morphou’s Church of Cyprus, a Greek Orthodox Church in Akaki, told primary school students that men are gay because their parents engaged in an “abnormal sexual act,” and the mother enjoyed it. The enjoyment is apparently a pre-requisite.
“It happens during the parent’s intercourse or pregnancy. It follows an abnormal sexual act between the parents. To be more clear, anal sex,” the Bishop told students during “spiritual meetings of dialogue,” the UK news site Metro reports.
The Bishop cited a recently deceased saint, Saint Porfyrios, who he says said “that when the woman likes that, a desire is born, and then the desire is passed on to the child,” Metro reports, citing the LGBTQ organization Accept LGBTI Cyprus.
There is, in fact, zero evidence of this unscientific claim.
On the Facebook page where the video is posted, commenters were only too happy to mock the Bishop’s false claim. Here’s one, translated by Facebook:
“So, my father, if the woman in time does oral, the child will become a dentist? Just a question my father!!!!! HAVE MERCY!!!!!!!!”
Pink News adds that the “clip went viral on social media in the country, with LGBT rights group ACCEPT asking: ‘How are lesbians created?'”

Sinema Slammed After Spokesperson Says It’s Sexist to Discuss Her ‘Thumbs Down’ Vote Against $15 Minimum Wage
Senator Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) on Friday offered up a dramatic “thumbs down” vote on increasing the minimum wage to $15, which NCRM and other news outlets reported. While she was one of eight Democrats to vote against the legislation, she was the only one to mimic the late Republican Senator John McCain, also of Arizona, who famously stopped Republicans from killing ObamaCare.
Sinema was also the only one to bring cake to the Senate floor, giving her critics ample ammunition to compare her to Marie Antoinette.
But now Senator Sinema is fighting back.
According to HuffPost, Sinema’s spokesperson says it’s sexist to discuss her thumbs down act.
“Sinema’s office responded to a question about the gesture by making the absurd claim that the inquiry is sexist,” the news outlet’s Sara Boboltz reports. “‘Commentary about a female senator’s body language, clothing, or physical demeanor does not belong in a serious media outlet,’ Hannah Hurley, a spokesperson for Sinema, told HuffPost.”
On social media news of the “sexist” claim spread quickly, and did not go over well. Some responses:
They want everyone arguing about whether it’s sexist to criticize Sinema’s thumbs down and not focusing on why ALL of these assholes, and by extension the entire Democratic Party, belong in a garbage disposal. https://t.co/oSbpWeEG8M

Sen. Sinema really trying to say people are sexist for critiquing her thumbs down is the biggest white woman energy right now.
She is privileged. The VAST majority of those making below $15 are brown and Black women. Her enthusiasm to keep people oppressed SHOULD be critiqued.

It’s not sexist. @SenBooker is my Senator. If he ever did that on a thumbs up or down vote I’d say the same thing. @kyrstensinema is regretting being sassy for herself, the cameras, or both. She created this moment.

looking for suggestions: anyone know how to dunk on the disproportionate number of women and woc minimum wage workers without being sexist? i guess this whole thumbs down thing has been poorly received. thx, office of sen. sinema https://t.co/Aokh87BwDv https://t.co/8q4t35cfaG

Criticizing Sinema for gleefully giving a minimum wage hike a thumbs down = not sexist https://t.co/VodHBV7e37

Is it sexist if a woman thinks her little thumbs down dance was sickening? Asking for all the female minimum wage earners Sinema fucked over today.

Mike Lindell: I Have Another Documentary That Will Convince SCOTUS Trump’s Election Loss Was ‘Attack on Our Country’
In February, right-wing conspiracy theorist and MyPillow founder Mike Lindell announced that he would be releasing “the most important documentary” in history, claiming that it would prove, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the 2020 presidential election had been stolen from Donald Trump. When Lindell released his documentary, it consisted almost entirely of him interviewing fellow voter-fraud conspiracy theorists as they made the same baseless allegations they had been making for months.
In the wake of this “documentary,” Lindell was sued by Dominion Voting Systems for $1.3 billion because of the false claims he had repeatedly made about the company and its voting machines. But Lindell remains undaunted, as he appeared on The Victory Channel’s “Flashpoint” program Thursday night where he announced the forthcoming release of a new “documentary” along with a new lawsuit that he predicted will finally prompt the Supreme Court to take up the issue, resulting in a 9-0 ruling that the election was stolen from Trump.
“There are great things coming,” Lindell declared. “Within the next 10 days or so, there’s going to be a platform I’m putting out that’s going to be the focal point where everyone can go out and there’s they can’t stop [us, like they do on] YouTube and all this stuff. What we’re gonna do, we’re gonna put out evidence every single day, more and more. The stuff that’s going on right now, you guys cannot believe it.” (Following the January 6 insurrection, a number of hard-right social media personalities were banished from platforms, including YouTube and Twitter.)
“As we build this up, and all this other evidence is showing, I’m going to come out with another documentary showing all the foreign interference,” he continued. “Everybody’s gonna know about this, in spite of the media. We’re bringing it up, we got the case, it’s almost ready, and when we bring it in five, six weeks before the Supreme Court; now let me tell you, by the time it gets there, everyone’s gonna see, everyone’s gonna know it, including all nine of them justices. This time they’ll have already seen the evidence, they’re gonna have to accept this. And I’m telling you, it’s going to be a 9-0 vote going, ‘Wow, this was an attack on our country by foreign actors and domestic.’ And I don’t know what they do after that—I’ve said that in my movie—but I will tell you this: They will do something. They have to.”

Ex-Top Trump Aide Larry Kudlow: Texas Power Outages Are ‘The Consequences’ of Electing Joe Biden
Former White House adviser Larry Kudlow suggested over the weekend that massive power outages in Texas are “the consequences” of electing President Joe Biden, who has only been in office a month.
During an interview on Sunday, Kudlow spoke to Fox News host Howard Kurtz about his new Fox Business program.
“I think they’ve moved very rapidly toward the progressive left position on a lot of these issues,” Kudlow said of the Biden administration. “He tried to temper it with talk about unity. There was some talk about moving to the center, that there would be more balance, there wouldn’t be a far-left progressive agenda.”
“Unfortunately in the early weeks — what, we’ve got a month here — it has been a left, progressive agenda,” he continued. “He’s gone after the energy sector. You saw some of the consequences in Texas. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.”
Kudlow did not immediately explain what Biden had done to cause the power outages.
