Blindsided by Bias
In the recent United States Presidential Elections (and in the previous Brexit vote in the United Kingdom), we have seen just how wrong the media experts can be. Many are describing the mainstream media as the lamestream media. A new word has been added to the English vocabulary: presstitutes. It is now being said that so many in the mass media prostituted journalism in being so partisan in pushing propaganda to promote the Clinton and Obama secular humanist globalist agenda - instead of reporting the news. Most so called news reports, in both the print media and on TV, seem to be more biased views than non-partisan news.

Bakers Lose Appeal to GayGB Court Ruling
Ashers Baking Company in Belfast, Northern Ireland, have lost their appeal to a ruling, which said that the business broke the law by declining to decorate a cake with a support gay marriage campaign slogan.
Last year (2015), they were fined for refusing to ice the slogan “Support Gay Marriage” on to a cake ordered by a campaigner to mark International Day Against Homophobia. They were charged with discrimination under the Equality Act (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2006.The McArthur family, who own and run Ashers, said they could not fulfil the order because it conflicted with their Christian beliefs about marriage being between a man and a woman.They declined the order not because the purchaser was homosexual, but because they did not wish to be associated with the political statement expressed in the slogan.
