Canada’s first trans mayor elected in village near Montreal known for its very Christian name and huge church

Incredible…

The small village of Très-Saint-Redempteur, Que., near the Ontario border, is known for its towering historical Catholic church — and now, for being home to Canada’s first openly transgender mayor.

The election of Julie Lemieux last Sunday flew under the radar as the surprising victory of Valérie Plante, Montreal’s first elected woman mayor, stole the headlines.

The irony of her religiously-rooted village having been the one to create the milestone was not lost on Lemieux.

“It’s quite funny,” she told CBC News over the phone Friday.

That church is now a community and cultural centre, she noted, and saving the old building by making it so was what got her into politics in the first place.

I guess the best man won… 😉

Man fed up with wife’s nagging flees, lives in woods for a decade

If a tree fell in the forest and she didn’t hear it, would he still be wrong? 😉

A gardener got so fed up with his wife’s nagging he ran away from home and lived in the woods for ten years.

Malcolm Applegate, 62, was married to his wife for three years before upping sticks after the relationship reached breaking point.

He then made his way from Birmingham, where they lived, to London – making half the three-week journey on foot after his bike was stolen.

Malcolm said: ‘I was married to her for three years, but unfortunately it got too much.

‘First of all I met her in Eastbourne and I married her in Birmingham.

‘For three years it was alright, we got on with one another and the gardening got too much for her.

‘She said, “Why don’t we have more time together?’ I said, ‘How can I? I have been recommended to people”.

‘I just upped and left, I got fed up with her because we used to get so many arguments.

I guess he took Proverbs 21:19 to heart! 🙂

You Know Your Church Has Lost the Plot When it Hosts a Satanic Fashion Show…

Reblogged from Zwinglius Redivivus:

St Andrew’s Church in Holborn received criticism after it offered up its building as part of London fashion week on Monday evening. The Anglican church’s alter was transformed into a runway for models wearing inverted crosses, devil horns and vampire costumes to walk down in Turkish designer Dilara Findikoglu’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection. Dr Adrian Hilton from the Archbishop Cramner blog told Premier the church’s decision to host the event was “bizarre”.

He said: “How can the Church ask godparents to reject Satan in its liturgy of christening when it’s hosting this sort of event?  There are people dressed up of Lucifer! There are women and men walking around with demonic symbols.” The Turkish designer who grew up with Muslim parents in Istanbul has admitted to constantly wanting to explore. She told Vogue magazine: “I’m into parapsychology and all the occult and magic stuff, so when I was reading those books, they thought I was going to be a Satanist.”

A spokesperson for the Diocese of London issued a statement to Premier in which the church apologised for permitting the event. It read: “The parish of St Andrew’s has always supported London Fashion Week. “We took this booking in good faith and were not aware of the content or design before the show took place.  “This was obviously a mistake, and the content of this show does not reflect the Christian faith of the Church. “We will be looking at our booking processes going forward to ensure this does not happen again.”

Hey, here’s an idea-  don’t book outside events that have nothing to do with Christianity.  Let the secular venues handle that garbage.

 

Millennial Chick Can’t Stop Having Sex with Trump Supporters

Hilarious.

Of course, she could, if she’d stop being a slut, but that’s impossible for millennial progs.

Vegan tranny feminist SJW turns on PETA

Moar intersectionality, please!

And pass the buttered popcorn. 🙂

Like Chris, I think that person is right in attacking PETA, but then I think anyone is right in attacking PETA.

This reminds me a bit of the way Pinktober has gotten attacked from the Left; eventually, progs turn on their own, and start going after them, in ever narrower purity spirals.

Bring it! 🙂
