I don't understand a word of this, can anyone intrpret for me?

Well, part of that last paragraph:

Was from here:

In another segment on Fox & Friends the same day, the hosts brought on Pastor Robert Jeffress, the leader of a Dallas mega-church who's best known for his frequent anti-gay and anti-Muslim statements, and for his repeated proclamations that President Obama is "paving the way for the anti-Christ."

Who better to discuss police brutality? Jeffress declared that Sharpton is "prostituting his pastoral position by using the unrest in Ferguson to further his own agenda." He added that according to the Bible, law enforcement officers are "ministers of God, sent to avenge evildoers.

Police didn’t search database showing Calif. shooter had bought guns

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — With the toughest gun-control regulations in the country, California has a unique, centralized database of gun purchases that law enforcement officers can easily search. It offers precious intelligence about a suspect or other people they may encounter when responding to a call.

But this rare advantage wasn’t enough to help authorities head off the May 23 rampage in Santa Barbara that claimed six victims.

Before a half-dozen sheriff’s deputies knocked on Elliot Rodger’s door last month in response to concerns raised by his mother about his well-being, they could have checked the database and discovered he had bought three 9mm semiautomatic handguns. Several law enforcement officials and legal experts on gun policy said this might have given deputies greater insight into Rodger’s intentions and his capability for doing harm.

The deputies did not check the database. They left his apartment after finding him to be “shy, timid, polite and well-spoken,” in the words of Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown. The deputies saw no evidence that Rodger was an immediate threat to others or to himself.

Boehner Says He’s ‘Not Qualified’ To Talk About Climate Science. Here’s How Scientists Responded.

When House Speaker John Boehner told a group of reporters on Thursday that he would not discuss climate change on the grounds that he, himself, was not a scientist, he joined the ranks of other prominent Republican politicians who have refused to talk about the issue on the same grounds.

“I’m not a scientist,” said Florida Governor Rick Scott last week, when asked if he thought man-made climate change was affecting the weather. “I’m not a scientist,” said Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) in 2009, his first in a long line of statement denying climate change. “I’m not sure, I’m not a scientist,” said Rep. Michael Grimm (R-NY) said of climate change in 2010 (Grimm changed his mind on the issue this past April).

The tactic is an interesting (and seemingly effective) way for politicians to avoid acknowledging or denying the reality of climate change while still getting to fight against any regulation to stop it. But actual climate scientists say the tactic is irresponsible, dangerous, and ignores the fact that credible scientific information is readily available.

Republican gay rights groups denied booths at party's Texas convention

DALLAS (Reuters) - Two Republican gay rights groups said on Thursday they had been denied booths at the party's upcoming Texas convention after being told their sexuality runs counter to the party's views.

The Metroplex Republicans and the national Log Cabin Republicans said at a news conference in Fort Worth that state GOP leadership had denied them permission for the booths at the June 5-7 convention.

"It’s time that the Texas GOP's hypocritical policies and procedures are replaced by new ones that match the general opinion of Texan Republican voters," Log Cabin Republicans of Texas Chairman Jeffrey Davis said.

----

The party platform states: "The practice of homosexuality tears at the fabric of society and contributes to the breakdown of the family unit. Homosexual behavior is contrary to the fundamental, unchanging truths that have been ordained by God, recognized by our country's founders, and shared by the majority of Texans."

Phil Robertson: GOP needs to ‘get Godly’

NEW ORLEANS -- "Duck Dynasty" star Phil Robertson on Thursday urged his fellow Republicans to bring their party back to God as it seeks its way forward.

Speaking to the Republican Leadership Conference here, the bearded Louisianan said the party and the country have moved too far away from the founding fathers' vision of religion's role in American government -- and that the current version of the separation of church and state is a "lie."

"GOP, you can’t be right for America if you’re wrong with God," Robertson said. “You want to turn the Republican Party around? Get Godly.”

Robertson spoke in a somewhat meandering fashion for about half an hour at the conference, where he was a late addition.

Video and Petition: Children Say ‘Andrew Jackson Has Got to Go’


Video and Petition: Children Say ‘Andrew Jackson Has Got to Go’


A group of students from Massachusetts are petitioning the Obama administration to remove Andrew Jackson from the $20 bill and replace him with “someone who was more committed to liberty and justice for ALL.”

“Although Andrew Jackson was a war hero, a champion of the common man, and a popular president, his shameful treatment of slaves and Native Americans should disqualify him from being on the $20 bill,” says the petition.

“While leading troops against Native Americans, Jackson favored killing women and children after massacres to eliminate future threats. As a prosperous slave owner, he sympathized with those who wanted tribal land for cotton production. As President, he passed the Indian Removal Act and initiated the forced removal we now call the Trail of Tears. When the Supreme Court sided with the Cherokee, Jackson became the only president to openly defy a Supreme Court ruling,” the petition continues.
