Howdy folks! Guess who is on the news desk? You guessed it, me! In this post, I am going to consolidate a few stories into one with the goal of easier mental digestion. The title of this blog entry kind of gives away the goodies, doesn’t it?
OK, let’s jump right in!
1. Creepy Pastor Busted
Did you hear the news? A horribly anti-gay pastor has been caught soliciting a minor. Here’s what happened. Timothy Lee Reddin, the head clergy over at Turner Street Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Arkansas, was busted and disgusted on August 3 after he came on to someone who is believed to be a 14-year old boy.
But wait there is more. The “boy” was an undercover police officer.
Now I am not going to take credit for this story. Instead, I will hat tip Queerty for the scoop because I’m just that kind of guy.
At any rate, local KARK-4 reports:
“Lee” described himself in his profile as a 62-year-old white male, 6’1″, 215 pounds and married. The profile description said, “I just wanna have fun…I like younger guys. But hell, at my age that’s just about everybody! Discreet, intelligent, witty, professional guy. Love to meet new friends. Especially naked ones,” according to the affidavit.”
2. Luke Evans in a Speedo
Are you a fan of Luke Evans? How about pictures of Luke Evans looking all yummed out? If the answer is yes, you wouldn’t be alone. That dude is HOT AF!
Well, if you want to see this man in a delicious speedo, make sure you head on over to the OMG Blog. There, you will find a variety of pictures that will make the trip worth it!
Oh, and the best part. There is a somewhat NSFW(ish) quality to what you’ll see – but not so much that it will cause your grandma to freak. Here’s the semi-safe for work link.
3. Nasty, Anti-Gay Postal Worker
It’s still hard to believe there are people who work with the public who think it’s OK to mouth-off anti-gay comments. But given the times in which we live, maybe it isn’t all that shocking?
At any rate, word comes to us from the folks at LGBTQ Nation about a nasty, homophobic postal worker who called a gay couple “fa**ots”.
Worse, the name calling didn’t happen just once. Instead, it apparently occurred multiple times. Thankfully, some things were caught on camera as one of the couple whipped out his smart-phone.
As it should have, the incident has made headlines. Now, the United States Postal Service has put out a statement and shared they are taking the incident seriously.
Here’s an official statement from USPS:
“The allegations made against a Postal Service employee are very concerning,” the statement said. “These actions – if true – are not consistent with and don’t represent the values of the Postal Service organization and will not be tolerated. You can be assured that this alleged incident is being fully investigated and that the Postal Service will take whatever action is appropriate.”
Well, that’s my news roundup. Thanks for stopping by!
