Papa don't preach, she's gonna keep their baby.

Tom Cruise’s future father-in-law apparently isn’t a happy camper.

Katie Holmes’s dad is said to be very upset because his unmarried
daughter is pregnant with Cruise’s child. And, what’s more, the devoutly
Catholic Martin Holmes reportedly is none-too-thrilled about his
daughter’s involvement in her husband-to-be’s controversial religion,
Scientology.

[Martin Holmes] was very upset and got into a real spat with Katie, the
forthcoming issue of Life & Style Weekly quotes a close friend of Cruise
as saying. Tom had promised her parents that they would do the right
thing and get married before any baby came along. After scolding his
daughter, according to the mag, Martin Holmes berated Cruise by
declaring You’re no good.

He said he and his wife were very upset by the news, according to the
source, and demanded the pair get married quickly.

Furthermore, a member of Christ the King Church, which the Holmes family
belongs to, told L&S that Cruise and Holmes’ publicist, his sister Lee
Anne DeVette, sent a letter to parishioners, asking them not to talk to
reporters. Although a family friend told the mag that the Holmes family
is thrilled by the news of a grandchild, they’re also concerned.

It seemed like Katie was being controlled by Scientologists, the friend
told L&S. Now they wonder if it’s a Rosemary’s Baby situation, where
Katie is being groomed to provide Tom with a child.

DeVette didn’t respond to The Scoop’s repeated requests for comment.



Personally I've met Katie Holmes, about 4-5 years ago at a UCLA screening series led by Curtis Hanson. She was one of the most gracious celebs I've ever met, and she's damn smart too. I'm choosing to believe she's actually in love, and when she decided she might not be...I'd expect we'd hear about that too. Enuf of this whole child bride being held captive by Scientologists, if she wanted out I think she'd go...of course there could be an evil alien inside of her that's keeping her by Tom's side...but that's an entirely different matter altogether!

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

STATEMENT BY THEFAYTH ABOUT THE BISEXUAL COMMUNITY

By thefayth, BiNet USA President
With additional edits/support from Juba Kalamka, BiNet USA VP

Bisexual communities have been notified of my intent to remove my networks, support and help from those who center white supremacy or practice trans exclusionary radical feminism. Simply put, I do not believe bisexual exclusionary communities (or beci's) to represent the bisexual community.

When I emailed, messaged and tweeted at "Jayne Shea" and messaged her last Tuesday, I did so because I'd seen Seattle continuing to thrive with TERF's, or people who exclude trans people.

It occurred to me, that the same group reported to BiNet USA for allowing cis only women was possibly closely associated with Jayne Shea; this has now been confirmed. And now the rest is history, Black-bisexual-intersex-trans history as I, thefayth, recently became more public in my transition from assumed cis female to known intersex trans multi-gender…

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag

No, I didn’t attempt to steal the bisexual pride flag
(but people I knew said I did, so did "the news")
By the artist formerly known as Faith Cheltenham, and the activist formerly known as thefayth

With my stepping away from bisexual community; I am returning home to those who love me; not something always found in bisexual, or LGBTQIA communities. The true upheaval for me personally is most profound in that I turn away from the concept of giving, entirely. thefayth is no more as I must admit I have no faith in humans, if I ever did. Further, I decline to serve with my body, my mind or spirit to provide such faith to humans without benefit to me first and always.

My bigger shame? Direct donating hundreds of thousands of dollars to advocacy between 2004-2017 focused on bi communities worldwide, while also working for free at same time; I should have picked one or the other!

My shame is particular, in that I feel, I may have been treated better if I’d been giving only to peopl…

DEATH OF KHALIL LAWAL BY PHILLY COP JAMES POWELL 

PHOTO OF KHALIL FROM www.socialistalternativephl.org
On January 29th, 2018, after accidentally hitting a pedestrian, Khalil Lawal was approached by Philadelphia Police Officer James Powell—who was off duty at the time—and shot 15 times mere seconds after the encounter. James Powell shot Khalil first at point blank range and then several more times as Khalil was already laid on the ground.

Khalil was unarmed and had not been committing any crimes when Powell approached him from behind with his gun already in hand. Khalil was shot directly in his left eye, his temple, his neck, chest and legs but succumbed to his injuries almost 2 hours after the incident.

In April, the Lawal family discovered that the Philadelphia Police Dept. still had not taken a statement from Powell—about 3 months following the s…
