This closing would never happen in the United States, but Private citizens in Moscow, 'helped' close an Art exhibit called "Jock Sturges: Absence of Shame." The US photographer is described as being known for his 'nude images of adolescents and their families'

The closure of the exhibition came after influential conservative senator Yelena Mizulina on Saturday released a statement on her website calling it "a public demonstration of child pornography materials" and said it "must be closed urgently". Russia's children's ombudswoman Anna Kuznetsova then weighed in, condemning it on Facebook a few hours later as "child pornography". Of course this being Russia, the Moscow gallery curator Natalia Litvinskaya told journalists the show had "nothing to do with paedophilia" but that she took the decision to close after receiving "threats from absolutely delusional people".

November Election
The US election is between Hilary and Trump, and it’s the most important election in our lifetime! What we do now will change the lives of our families and their children!

I come not to defend Trump, but to vote for him, though he is adopting the GOP Platform, will nominate good, non-activist conservative judges, and will defend the rule of Law. He is learning, and is becoming more Presidential
The alternative is Hillary who will continue the attempts to force cloistered nuns to pay for artificial birth control, force Churches to allow self-proclaimed transgenereds to use opposite sex bathrooms during Church activites open to the public (which ones aren't?) and continue to spend our grandchildren's National Inheritence, expand abortion on demand by government funding through an eviserated Hyde Amendment, as well as being a liar.
Pray for both, but vote for Trump.

Protect student privacy.
In May 2016, the federal government issued a mandate demanding that schools must let boys in the girls’ locker rooms, shower facilities, and restrooms … and vice versa. This mandate is not limited to certain areas of the country. It impacts all public and private educational institutions, from preschool to post-graduate school, that receive federal funds.

All children have the right to privacy and cannot be forced to share intimate facilities, undress, and even shower with the opposite sex. The common sense and compassionate solution to respect the privacy and safety of everyone is to offer single-sex facilities for those who are uncomfortable using locker rooms and showers designated for their biological sex. But the new federal mandate is not focused on common sense or real compassion. . .One of several federal lawsuits highlighting this issue is now being considered for review by the U.S. Supreme Court. Please help to make sure the Supreme Court knows where the American people stand on this issue, visit the Alliance Defending Freedom web site to see their friend-of-the-court brief.

God Bless America
