This Week’s Show

- Man is Rev O Jermaine Simmons Sr, pastor of Jacob Chapel Baptist Church in Tallahassee, FL
- Ben Stephens was called by the school to pick up their 6yo son. When he arrived home he found pastor hypocrite banging his wife, Claynisha, in his daughter’s bed

- Jan 25 the SD Senate passed SB 55 which says in part
“No teacher may be prohibited from helping students understand, analyze, critique, or review in an objective scientific manner the strengths and weaknesses of scientific information presented in courses being taught which are aligned with the content standards established pursuant to § 13–3–48 [the section of the state code that governs the state education standards revision cycle].”
- This is basically saying that it’s okay for a teacher to “teach the controversy” which is pseudoscience nonsense.
- Jeff Monroe (R-District 24), a sponsor of SB 55, also sponsored SB 112 in 2014, which would have prevented school boards and administrators from prohibiting teachers from teaching “intelligent design.”
- The National Center for Science Education’s, Glenn Branch, told the Sioux Fall’s *Argus-Leader *that SB 55’s passage could allow teachers to present creationism, climate change denial, or white supremacy with impunity. He also observed that local school boards could be put in a legal bind whether or not they tried to prevent maverick teachers from miseducating their students about science, warning, “This is a recipe for legal disaster.”
- The SD House now has the bill.
- The Russian parliament voted 380–3 to decriminalize domestic violence in cases where it does not cause “substantial bodily harm” and does not occur more than once a year.
- Eliminates criminal liability in such cases, makes a violation punishable by a fine of roughly $500, or a 15-day arrest, provided there is no repeat within 12 months.
- Reverses a ruling by the Supreme Court last year, subsequently backed by parliament, that decriminalized battery that does not inflict bodily harm, but retained criminal charges involving battery against family members.
- Andrei Isayev of the main Kremlin faction, the United Russia, said lawmakers are “heeding the public call” by correcting a mistake they made last year.
- Russia is one of three countries in Europe and Central Asia that do not have laws specifically targeting domestic violence, according to The Economist .
This Week’s Stories
- Hava Celebic, or ‘nana Hava’ as she is known to locals in her village in Bosnia and Herzegovina, has supposedly cured 5,000 people using the unusual technique.
- only person in the world who possess the ability to heal with her tongue, which makes the 10 euros she charges seem something of a bargain.
- Hava uses her tongue to remove pieces of lead, iron, coal, sawdust and glass from eyeballs after sterilizing her mouth with alcohol.
- You might recall Limpopo’s controversial “Prophet of Doom” from great stories like
- Don’t Drink Toxic Chemicals
- Don’t Drink Toxic Chemicals 2: Task The Spray
- People Let Me Park On Them
- and People Let Me Park On Them 2: I Needed A Speaker Stand
- Well, Pastor Lethebo Detective Rabalago, of Mount Zion General Assembly, finally got arrested apparently.
- The Limpopo department of health had brought an urgent application for the court to interdict the doom-spraying prophet and members of his Mount Zion General Assembly church in Zebediela from spraying people with Doom.
- Rabalago’s legal council Lubisi expressed strong confidence that the case – which involves the law and faith – is not a strong one‚ adding that the two should be kept separate.
- A group of about 60 people wearing T-shirts with the words “Touch not the Anointed One” written on them, all scrambled to secure a spot inside the court, where the pastor was to make his first court appearance.
- Other supporters‚ most of them women, who could not get a seat inside the court, were seen singing outside the high court building on Biccard Street.
- Supporters inside the court hailed and cheered the pastor when he finally appeared in two-toned formal shoes and a slim fit maroon jacket. He was accompanied by bodyguards, who kept an eye on him all through.
- On their way to catch a bus after the court session‚ Rabalago’s supporters were singing: “Where there is Doom‚ there are no problems.”
- Hours before his court appearance, Rabalago said he was not afraid of jail. The embattled pastor dared law enforcement to arrest him, saying jail would not stop him from performing miracles. He further told The Sowetan he believed God could make him disappear from the jail cells.
“Right now, it’s real easy. Right now, they don’t make it important to be personally responsible because they know that they have a backup of ‘oh, I can just go get an abortion.’ Now, we both know that consenting adults don’t always think smartly sometimes. But consenting adults need to also consider the repercussions of the sexual relationship that they’re gonna have, which is a child.”
