“A man whose hands were cuffed behind him in the back seat of an Arkansas patrol car shot himself in the right temple with a handgun he apparently concealed from arresting officers, according to an autopsy report released Monday that listed the death as a suicide. The state crime lab report, signed by three medical examiners, said the muzzle of a gun was placed against Chavis Carter’s head when it was fired. Jonesboro police released the report to news organisations under a Freedom of Information Act request. The report said the manner of death was ruled a suicide based on autopsy findings and investigative conclusions from the Jonesboro police department…”.* Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur discuss on The Young Turks.

Dolan also said Engeldinger may have chosen to spare some former co-workers…”.* Are these mass shootings so common now that the media is less interested in covering them?

Kill Gay People – North Carolina Pastor’s Outrageous Sermon

“North Carolina Pastor Charles Worley shared with his congregation this weekend how he thinks the country should deal with the scourge of gay men and lesbians: Lock them into a pen with an electrified fence, drop food down to them, and because they can’t reproduce, they will die out. The Pastor’s leper colony-esque proposal came in response to the president’s endorsement of same-sex marriage…”.* Ana Kasparian and Cenk Uygur break it down on The Young Turks.

Pastor: Schools Teaching ‘How to be Homo’ Caused CT Shooting



Views:61823|Rating:4.79|View Time:6:6Minutes|Likes:2125|Dislikes:92
“Pastor Sam Morris, of the Old Paths Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Tennessee, told his congregation on Sunday that mass shootings in the U.S., such as the one in Newtown, Connecticut, were increasing because “governmental schools” were teaching kids “how to be a homo,” reports RawStory.com.

Morris said: “Why do you still send your kids to the governmental schools? What’s behind this shooting that we saw on Dec. 14 in Newtown, Connecticut and the other one’s like it? What’s going on. Well, number one, deception… I got news for you, when you kicked God out of schools, you’re going to be judged for that.”*

Pastor Sam Morris has theories of what caused the gun massacre in Newtown Connecticut. Crazy, baseless theories about “government schools” that “teach kids to be a homo” and other ridiculous pro-gun ideas. Cenk Uygur breaks it down.

Cannabis Church Explained



Views:77598|Rating:4.60|View Time:5:40Minutes|Likes:2067|Dislikes:180
The International Church of Cannabis is about to open. Ana Kasparian, Brian Unger, and Amberia Allen, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you how you can be a parishioner. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“DENVER ― The International Church of Cannabis is slated to open its doors on April 20 and welcome the first-ever congregation of “Elevationists,” as it calls its members.

The church’s stated purpose is to serve as “a home to adults everywhere who are looking to create the best version of themselves by way of the sacred plant.” Just how that will be achieved is still up in the air, but church leaders told 9News that programming is expected to include guest speakers, comedians, artists, musicians and film screenings.

And while city officials ― and skeptical neighbors ― are concerned that founders Steve Berke and Lee Molloy are merely exploiting a legal loophole to create a cannabis club, the two promise the church isn’t just a smokescreen for illegal activities. No marijuana will be sold at the church.

“First and foremost, this is a community church,” Berke told Denver publication Westword. “There are rumors that this is a rasta smoking lounge or a nightclub. It’s not. It’s a safe place to congregate and consume.”

Police Murder Confused Elderly Man

The victim was reportedly holding a small wooden crucifix. Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian, hosts of The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“”He should have passed away surrounded by family, not surrounded by police and bullets”

The 73-year-old California man with dementia who was shot dead by police Monday may have been waving a wooden crucifix that was mistaken for a weapon, his family said.

Francisco Serna was in the early stages of dementia and had recently begun carrying around a crucifix that was about 6 inches long and waving it at people, according to one of his daughters, Laura Serna.

“There were moments where he thought he was going to die of old age,” his daughter told TIME on Tuesday. “He was just carrying that around. I don’t know if it was like for his security. They could have mistaken that for a weapon.”

Francisco Serna was out for a brisk walk at about 12:30 a.m. when a Bakersfield police officer opened fire while responding to a report of an armed man, authorities and the man’s relatives said.

Authorities said Serna was unarmed when he was shot and killed. Serna’s family believe he had the crucifix with him at the time; they have not found it in the house since his death.

Bakersfield police did not comment on whether a crucifix was found with Serna at the time of the shooting. Sgt. Gary Carruesco, a police department spokesman, said in a statement that officers were responding to a report of a man “brandishing a handgun.” One officer shot Serna several times in a neighbor’s driveway after a witness pointed to him and has since been placed on routine administrative leave.”*

Atheist Group Sues IRS For Exempting Electioneering Churches



Views:72417|Rating:4.86|View Time:3:36Minutes|Likes:2535|Dislikes:74
“The Wisconsin-based Freedom From Religion Foundation on Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the IRS for failing to audit thousand of churches that allegedly violated federal tax law by engaging in partisan advocacy.

“[T]he Internal Revenue Service, under the direction of the Defendant Shulman, has followed and continues to follow a policy of non-enforcement of the electioneering restrictions of §501(c)(3) against churches and other religious organizations,” the lawsuit states. “As a result, in recent years, churches and religious organizations have been blatantly and deliberately flaunting the electioneering restrictions of §501(c)(3), including during the presidential election year of 2012.”*

Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss the tax exempt status held by many churches. Is it fair for the IRS to turn a blind eye to electioneering? Then, shouldn’t agnostics and atheists get similar status?

“A Florida woman who had sought medical attention at a hospital for breathing difficulties died when doctors kicked her out, going so far as having police handcuff her and forcibly remove her, the Tallahassee Democrat reports.

Barbara Dawson, 57, was taken to Calhoun Liberty Hospital by ambulance complaining of stomach pain on Sunday night. She was discharged by hospital staff hours later. But Dawson complained that she still wasn’t feeling well and didn’t want to leave. But family members told the Democrat the nursing staff “banned” her from the hospital.”

Gone Girl Oral Sex Scene Raising Eyebrows In Hollywood

“In the prudish ‘90s and early aughts, including a scene of a man going down on a woman would earn you an ugly NC-17 rating. Now, thankfully, the MPAA has loosened up… a bit.

In the past, a scene like that—depicting a woman well on her way to achieving orgasm—would have earned the film a big, ugly NC-17 rating from the relentless prudes at the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA), a shadowy trade organization that’s long deemed any degree of corporal violence as far more acceptable than female sexual pleasure, and has done more to shame male-to-female oral sex than Michael Douglas. But recently, the MPAA has loosened the stick in its collective ass and allowed women to go there whilst maintaining an R rating.”

The Young Turks (Winner – Best Political Podcast & Best Political News Site of 2009) were the first original talk show on Sirius satellite radio and the first live, daily webcast on the internet. But that is not the revolution.

We are a rare show that combines all of the news that people care about in one place. We are not afraid to talk about politics and entertainment and sports and pop culture. But that is not the revolution either.

The real revolution is in daring to be honest with people. We don’t patronize our viewers or lie to them. We have real conversations and deliver the news honestly.

Republicans Furious Over Bo Obama Holiday Card



Views:102242|Rating:4.80|View Time:3:41Minutes|Likes:2146|Dislikes:88
“Larassa Kabel never expected to be chosen when she submitted her painting to be considered for the White House holiday card this September.

The Des Moines, Iowa, artist said “it was a very surreal moment,” when she got the call from the White House secretary’s office while cooking pizza for her family one night, hearing that first lady Michelle Obama had chosen her piece.

The White House released the 2012 Christmas card, painted by Kabel, this morning.”*

This year, the Obamas have released a card for the holidays with a picture of their Portuguese water dog, Bo, playing in the snow. But this has infuriated Republicans because there are no Bible verses or mention of Christmas on the card. Cenk Uygur explains the card and its similarity to a Ronald Reagan card no one had a problem with.
