Iowa boy and family fear retribution for resisting LGBT indoctrination at school

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa, October 4, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — An Iowa boy and his parents are fearful of retaliation by teachers and school officials after the stepfather objected to seeing his stepson subjected to LGBT propaganda sponsored by a local junior high school.

Judd Saul, a local Christian activist and documentary film director, told LifeSiteNews that Robert Michael is worried about the repercussions of his encounter with a state senator, a former teacher, and a junior high school principal on September 23. That morning, Michael’s stepson sent a text to his mother asking to be taken home. It read: “Can I leave school today? Everyone is in gay flags and the gays are taking over.” It went on to say, “They are handing out gay stickers and donuts. You should let me leave.”

The text was accompanied by a photo that showed that rainbows and pro-LGBT messages and paraphernalia were being distributed to kids at the public Peet Junior High in Cedar Falls. When Michael arrived at the school with his wife, they found that the event had ended and that organizers were preparing to leave. According to Saul, members of the school’s gay/straight alliance slapped rainbow stickers on students as they arrived or handed rainbow flags. Colorful doughnuts were also made available.

Man who choked and assaulted sex worker in Vancouver park gets 4 1/2 years

A man who choked and sexually assaulted a sex-trade worker in a Vancouver park has been sentenced to 4 1/2 years in prison.

Ezaz Ahmed Razak, 25, was found guilty in May of sexual assault causing bodily harm, robbery, attempt to choke to enable the robbery and sexual assault, unlawful confinement and uttering a threat against the sex-trade worker, who cannot be identified due to a publication ban.

In the early morning hours of Sept. 2, 2017, Razak, who was 23 at the time of the offences, had consensual sex with the sex-trade worker, who is only identified in a ruling by the initials M.F., in the park.

Afterward, Razak attacked M.F., choking her throat from behind and demanding that the sex continue. He forced her to perform various sexual acts, including unprotected intercourse, choking her to the point where she had difficulty breathing.

Razor directed degrading and demeaning verbal attacks toward M.F. during the assault and issued threats of further violence.

“She was made to kneel down and ‘pray to her God’ while Mr. Razak told her that he could kill her or have her killed,” noted B.C. Supreme Court Justice Shelley Fitzpatrick in her sentencing ruling.

The violent attack only came to an end when the victim managed to escape from Razak and run to a nearby home. She suffered injuries to her shoulders, upper back, arms and knees, including scrapes and bruises.

Although M.F. didn’t provide a victim impact statement, during the trial she said she still has flashbacks and suffers depressed anxiety. She attributed three suicide attempts to the trauma arising from the attack.

The judge heard that several months before the attack an “extremely intoxicated” Razak had been involved in a bloody altercation with his brother that did not result in charges.

Several months after the attack on M.F., and while on bail on those charges, he attacked a woman with whom he’d had a relationship, sexually assaulting her and uttering a threat. He is to be sentenced for those offences in provincial court in November.

In her ruling, Fitzpatrick said that the aggravating factors in the attack on the sex-trade worker were that it was a “serious and violent” attack and a violation of M.F.’s personal integrity. Other aggravating factors included that many of Razak’s actions and demands were designed to humiliate and degrade her, and that the attack was on a vulnerable sex-trade worker.

“The circumstances relating to M.F. are another example of a sex-trade worker being attacked late at night in an area where she was alone and extremely vulnerable to this type of violent behaviour,” the judge said.
