A New Hero in the Kennedy Clan

A New Hero in the Kennedy Clan

Last week in Aspen, Colorado, Conor Kennedy, the grandson of Robert F. Kennedy, was arrested charged with disorderly conduct.

A bar fight broke out at the Bootsy Bellows nightclub and Kennedy was seen punching a man. Witnesses have stated that a friend of Kennedy’s was called a homophobic slur by a group of men and the men refused to apologize. Kennedy’s lawyer stated “Multiple witnesses to the incident have reported that two men assaulted Kennedy after he rebuked them for directing a homophobic slur and threats to his close friend.”

Robert Kennedy Jr., Conor’s father, stated “Conor has always reacted against bullying. I’m happy he stood up for his friend.”

Could politics be in Kennedy’s future?  Fingers crossed.

Seattle Woman Shuts Down Homophobic Neighbor With Christmas Display

Seattle Woman Shuts Down Homophobic Neighbor With Christmas Display

Lexi Magnusson, a Seattle mom who is new to the neighborhood believes her new neighbor found out she was raised Mormon and therefore thought making derogatory comments about the LGBTQ community was accepted.  But Magnusson did not start a neighborhood brawl.  Instead she decided to use her Christmas display to let her neighbor know where her family stands on LGBTQ issues.

Magnusson told The Huffington Post that she and her husband no longer attend the Mormon Church. Regarding her neighbor Magnusson said, “I imagine she thought we still held the same belief about LGBTQ issues as the Church does. We absolutely do not. It’s why I left the Mormon church.”

The neighbor told Magnusson that she had moved to protect her children from the dangers of a gay lifestyle. Magnusson said that she only responded verbally with “‘Your kids are going to be exposed to this no matter where you take them. Kids these days get it. They know not to be horrible to other kids based on how they were born.” Magnusson let her Christmas lights do the rest. She mounted 10,000 Christmas lights on the bushes lining her house in the color of the rainbow, the LGBTQ rainbow.

Looks like Magnusson’s neighbor may have to move again.  Merry Christmas!
