Young children at Franklin D. Roosevelt Middle School in Bristol, Pennsylvania have been sexting each other with a video showing minors performing incestuous sex according to local authorities who are warning parents that children who forward such materials via the Internet face criminal charges under Pennsylvania law forbidding minors to transmit nude images of anyone between the ages of 12 and 17, including "selfies".

The video, discovered on Tuesday being shared by students during an after school event, shows two minors engaged in activities “that are inappropriate and, in fact, illegal,” said Superintendent of Schools Samuel Lee in a statement posted on the district’s website.

When school officials discovered the video, Lee said he “immediately notified local law enforcement and child welfare agencies and the parties involved in this video are now part of an active investigation.”

“A number of cellphones have been secured by police for investigation, which is ongoing,” police said.

As part of their inquiry, [Bristol Township Police acting chief Lt. John] Godzieba said, investigators confiscated 10 cellphones from pupils at Roosevelt, on Veterans Highway near Winder Drive in Bristol.

In a statement distributed Wednesday, Samuel Lee, superintendent of the Bristol Township School District, said school administrators caught wind of the video late Tuesday and turned over all information about the footage to police and child-welfare agencies.

Under a 2012 amendment to Title 18, the state's criminal code, it's illegal for minors to possess, view or distribute sexually explicit depictions of other minors.

Gov't Says Syphilis Soaring Among Homosexual Men

The federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported this week that the number of cases of the sexually-transmitted disease syphilis increased over ten percent in just one year and that male homosexual behavior (anal sex) accounts for 75% of the increase.
"Syphilis is like the canary in the coal mine for HIV. People are going to be positive for syphilis before they are diagnosed with HIV. This means that there is a potential increase in HIV cases."

Primary and secondary syphilis is the stage at which the sexually transmitted disease is at its most acute and infective. People in these stages can pass the disease to others for up to two years after becoming infected. If diagnosed early, syphilis can be treated with penicillin or other antibiotics.

Gay and bisexual men continue to be most affected by the disease.

The uptick in syphilis cases locally began back in 2010.

From "Syphilis on the Rise Among Gay, Bisexual Men: CDC" by Steven Reinberg, HealthDay Reporter 12/16/14

"There are over 20 million cases of sexually transmitted diseases [STDs] every year in the United States, and they continue to pose a risk of lifelong complications for millions of Americans," said Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of CDC's National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention.

There are a variety of reasons that put gay and bisexual men at high risk for syphilis, said Mermin.

"Some are the high number of sexual partners and sexual networks that create a vicious cycle where the prevalence of syphilis is higher. And that leads to higher incidence, which leads to higher prevalence, and that cycle can increase the frequency of infection," he said.

The sores caused by syphilis make it easier to get or give someone HIV. . . .

From "Men Still Drive STD Increases" by Michael Smith, North American Correspondent, MedPage Today 12/16/14

[The CDC] found, rates among men were increasing, while those for women were falling or stable.

Women continue to have the most reported infections -- some 993,348 cases in 2013 for a rate of 623.1 per 100,000 -- at least partly because they are more likely to be screened for the disease, the report said. The rate was a 2.4% decline from 2012.

On the other hand, there were 408,558 cases among males for a rate of 262.6 cases per 100,000 males, up 0.8% from 2012.

In jurisdictions where information for both sex of partner and HIV status was relatively complete -- defined as 70% or greater for all cases -- 52% of men who have sex with men with syphilis also had HIV. The co-infection rates for men who have sex with women and for women were 9.9% and 5.2%, respectively.

Illinois School Sexting: Police Find Nude Selfies

Lincolnshire police in suburban Chicago are investigating several boys and girls at Stevenson High School District 125 who have been electronically sharing photographs of themselves naked.  Distribution of child pornography, a felony crime, reminds parents of a Stevenson homosexual teacher forced to resign recently after a police investigation of his sexting a student.  This teacher was subsequently hired by a Texas school.
“We should know. We’re the parents. If this has something to do with one of my kids, I’m going to be in shock. I think we all need to know what’s going on.”

High school spokesman Jim Conrey says the sexting suspects are juveniles. There are several, he says, both boys and girls. And the lewd photos appear to be selfies.

“It’s a regrettable situation all around. Because anytime you’re talking about sexting, not only does it diminish the person whose image is being shared around, but secondly it also diminishes the value of the person who is sending the images around. Everybody gets hurt by this,” he says.

The school two months ago sponsored a forum to discourage students from sexting.

Lincolnshire Police Investigator Adam Hyde confirmed police are investigating fewer than five students who were sexting pictures at the school. Hyde said, he could not discuss details of the case because it is a juvenile matter.

Conrey said punishment can range from loss of privileges to a school suspension. He said the punishment depends on each individual case, and whether the student has been involved in past misconduct.

This is the latest Lake County [Illinois] school to have a major sexting scandal break since November.

Three students from Warren Township High School, one from Grayslake Central High School, and one from Carmel High School in Mundelein were charged the first week of November for sexting lewd images and cyberbullying a freshman at Warren.

Atheists' Complaints Motivate Christmas Fervor

The more anti-Christmas threatening letters that the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) sends to towns displaying nativity scenes on public property, the more visible the Christmas displays become in those towns — examples abound across America, including Jay, Florida and Dallas, North Carolina and Brookville, Indiana.
“This issue is in our own backyard, and we as a community will not be bullied. Jesus’ birth is the point of Christmas, and we think the Nativity should be there.”

The city traditionally places a Nativity scene outside Jay City Hall, however, this year the town received a letter from the Madison, Wis.-based Freedom from Religion Foundation that said the display was unconstitutional, Town Clerk Linda Carden said. The foundation threatened to take legal action against the town if the Nativity scene was not removed.

The town council discussed the issue Monday and concluded it would be in the community's best interest to remove the display rather than risk lengthy and expensive litigation, Carden said.

The council declared the Nativity scene surplus and gave it to the North Santa Rosa Ministerial Association. The association asked for and was granted permission from the council to erect the display at the corner of Commerce Street and Highway 4.

From "Atheist Group's Complaint Backfires, Lands Nativity In Full Public View" by Brittany M. Hughes, 12/15/14

The FFRF, known for protesting any and all religious displays in public places, sent a complaint letter recently to local officials in the 526-person city of Jay, arguing against the life-sized nativity that had been set up on the site every Christmas for nearly 40 years, the group said in a press release.

“It now stands at a busy corner at the town’s main stop light—ironic, say nativity supporters, because many more people will see it there,” the APN [American Pastors Network] said in a news release, adding that the more prominent display shows the citizens of Jay “have no intention of removing the real meaning of Christmas from public display.”

“The truth remains that public displays of the nativity scene on government property in no way violate the Constitution. FFRF’s attempts to stifle religious liberty, however, do,” [APN President Sam Rohrer] added.

[The] nativity display in Brookville, Ind., is still standing despite the FFRF’s attempts to force the local government to remove it, the group added.

From "First Amendment dispute pits nonprofit against Nativity display" by Kristine Guerra, Indianapolis Star posted at Palladium-Item (Richmond, IN) 12/16/14

Every year for the past five decades, about a dozen Brookville residents have built a Nativity scene outside the county courthouse.

The Freedom From Religion Foundation, a Madison, Wis.-based nonprofit, has been sending letters to the county commissioners since 2010, asking the county to take down the “unlawful” display from public property. A second letter, sent in December 2013, says the Nativity scene is a constitutional violation that shows the government endorses one religion over another.

The county commissioners ignored the letters. The volunteers continued putting up the display every year. Others advocated for keeping the town’s tradition.

. . . a group of people marched Friday evening from the Brookville Public Library to the Nativity display to show their support. . . .

[Franklin County Commissioner Tom] Wilson said the county commissioners will not issue a formal response unless the Freedom From Religion Foundation files a lawsuit.

Community members told WBTV the religious decorations had been placed in Dallas' Courthouse Square for 40 years.

This year, town leaders moved it off public property after they received complaints from the Freedom from Religion Foundation. The foundation claims it violates the separation of church and state.

The Nativity is now on private property about a block away from the Courthouse Square.

In response to the move, dozens of people in Dallas gathered over the weekend to put on a live nativity.

More than a hundred people staged a live Nativity scene on the [Dallas, NC] courthouse square Saturday night to celebrate the birth of Jesus. Participants dressed in costumes as biblical figures depicted in the story of Jesus’ birth.

Many of those who came said they were outraged the display would not adorn the courthouse square lawn this Christmas.

The owner of Beaty’s Service Center on West Trade Street agreed to erect the town’s Nativity scene at his auto repair shop on Friday. Jordan said she’s happy to see it up, but it’s a temporary fix. She hopes the demonstration will evolve into something bigger.

Dallas officials are searching for a solution. Mayor Rick Coleman said Friday town attorneys are working with several Christian legal organizations to try to return the nativity back to public property . . .

Liberals Launch Salvo at Gov. Jindal Prayer Rally

As Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal prepares his foray into the Republican presidential primary, liberals in the media can't decide whether to criticize him as a radical right-wing Christian fundamentalist who believes that God controls disease and natural disaster, or if he's just another political opportunist wooing the powerful Christian base of the party.

American Family is covering the cost of the event, scheduled for 10:30 a.m.-4 p.m. on Jan. 24 at the Maravich Assembly Center. The mass meeting is billed as a group meditation -- a response, if you will -- to the multiple crises facing the country.

The Day Two tells believers to meditate on God’s vengeance, beginning with the plagues God sent to Egypt for enslaving the Jews.

For Christian evangelicals, blaming gays and women for catastrophes is nothing new. Even as the Twin Towers in New York City burned on Sep. 11, 2001, the late evangelist Jerry Falwell said the attacks were the result of the U.S. “throwing God out of the public square.”

Okla. Abortionist Arrested, Patient Claims Torture

A probable cause affidavit filed Tuesday in Oklahoma County District Court says Patel prescribed the three undercover agents abortion-inducing drugs even though they were not pregnant. A jail official said Patel was being booked early Tuesday afternoon with a $2,000 bail.

This young woman does not want to be identified, but wanted to share her experience of going to Patel's women's clinic for an abortion earlier this year – an experience she kept secret for a very long time.

She learned Patel is charged with three counts of obtaining money by false pretense for prescribing abortion inducing drugs to patients who were not pregnant. He is also accused of performing an abortion on at least one woman who was not pregnant.

She feels Patel was taking advantage of women who were at their most vulnerable. Now that she is expecting another child, she wants to encourage women who also had a questionable experience with Patel to come forward.

She claims Dr. Patel lied to her about how far along she was in order to charge her more money for an abortion.

“I actually felt like I was having a heart attack a lot of the time. I’d gone into the hospital on two other occasions with chest pains,” she said.

She decided to get an abortion and went to see Dr. Naresh Patel at his Warr Acres clinic.

“I went back, and they quickly did this ultrasound and he immediately said ‘You’re two weeks further along than what you’re telling me,’ and I said, ‘I don’t know how that could be,” she said.

“They said, ‘Well, that’s going to be another $500,” she said.

Undercover agents from the Oklahoma Medical Licensure Board, the Oklahoma City Police Department and the Attorney General's Office set up appointments with Patel where the doctor performed ultrasounds and pregnancy tests on the women where he is alleged to have fraudulently identified each undercover agent as pregnant. Afterward, he prescribed them an abortion-inducing drug, provided directions for administering it and charged the female agents for the unnecessary treatment, according to the AG's office.

If convicted, Patel could face up to three years in jail and a maximum fine of $15,000.

Agents from the Attorney General's Office, Warr Acres Police Department and Oklahoma City Police Department also executed search warrants on Patel's business and home Tuesday morning.

According to the AG's office, an investigation into Patel's dubious practices arose from a complaint that he had performed an abortion procedure on Pamela King, even though she was not pregnant. King was diagnosed and died from complications of cervical cancer later that year, and her autopsy determined that she had not been pregnant in the time frame that the abortion procedure occurred.

Patel is an abortionist with a long and particularly horrific history of Medical Board disciplinary actions, malpractice claims, and criminal cases. Nevertheless, financial documents found amid the medical records and waste indicate that Patel owns $39.4 million in real estate. His personal income exceeds $1.4 million annually. His net worth is listed at $28 million.

Board discipline

In 1990, Patel was disciplined by the Oklahoma Medical Board for Unprofessional Conduct for “failing to maintain dispensing records for dangerous drugs and keep complete and accurate records of purchase and dispensing of controlled drugs.”

. . .

Rape and sodomy charges

In 1993, Patel was charged with one count of “forcible oral sodomy” and one count of sexual battery after a patient alleged that he had sexually assaulted her on an examination table prior to an abortion. She then recorded two phone conversations with him in which she alleged that he asked if she was angry about the assault and apologized for it.

Three victims came forward and told of their encounters with Patel.

Employee obtains protective order

In 2003, one of his employees sought and received a protective order after she told the court that Patel became angry over a difficult patient took it out on her.

A judge ordered Patel to pay $240,000 in damages to a 15-year-old girl left permanently injured following an attempted abortion in June 1989. . . .

Another malpractice case was filed by a patient who underwent an abortion by Patel only to find out later she was 20 weeks pregnant. That suit was also dismissed.

According to emails from the city clerk, [self-proclaimed atheist, Preston] Smith put in his request to speak this summer, hinting he would sue if not allowed. He told us over the phone his goal is to get local governments to stop praying before public meetings.

"I don't want these guys to pray. I want these guys to study, I want these guys to do their homework," said [Chaz] Stevens, who is an atheist, but chose to do a satanic prayer to get more attention.

He lives in Deerfield Beach, but calls Lake Worth the "battleground." He said the city of Deerfield Beach continues to put off his request for a satanic prayer in from of that city council.

Smith said he chose to lead an invocation in Lake Worth because it's closest to where he lives. He also put in a request to lead the invocation at a Palm Beach County commissioners meeting, but was told only county commissioners lead the invocation at those meetings.

Smith’s invocation mentioned Allah, Satan, Zeus, Jesus, Krishna and Thor, ending with “let us, above all, love one another, not to obtain mythical rewards for ourselves now, hereafter, or based on superstitious threats of eternal damnation, but rather, embrace secular-based principles of morality – and do good for goodness’ sake.”
