I hope Neil Young will remember, he’s said some outrageous things too, treat others the way you want to be treated. If [Whoopi’s] wrong (and I think she probably is), it’ll come to light as soon as we engage in a conversation.

We keep moving, i just hope people come to their senses. I’m a voice crying out in the wilderness, but I was put here because God saved me. What you’re seeing on planet Earth is spiritual warfare… The grace of God, it’s a free gift. So boy, if you’re on the wrong side of this thing, you really ought to rethink it.
I hope that people would quit accusing each other, we’re all guilty of sin. We all make mistakes. Therefore, you have no excuse to pass judgment on someone else. That’s what people do. They find a mistake you made when you were 18 years old or something you said on the internet long ago. Then they go after you with a vengeance. You’re condemning yourself by passing judgment on others. Do you think you’ll escape God’s judgment? In a culture of accusations, shame and condemnation, I’m just trying to speak out about the word of God… Just forgive each other and move on for crying out loud.
No regrets at all – none, i just went on. I never called AE and said, ‘What are you doing?’ I never said a word when they came to visit me about 10 days after this all went down. I said, ‘Guys, did y’all ever hear from me with some kind of irate phone call? ‘Cause you were firing me?’ They said, ‘Mr. Robertson, you never said a word.’ … I quoted a Bible verse that dealt with homosexual behavior. I just quoted the Bible verse that God had written through Paul the Apostle by the power of the Holy Spirit… I didn’t dream it off the top of my head. It didn’t go any further than that.
The ones who attacked me, I didn’t hold it against them, they asked me a question about a particular sin, homosexual behavior. And they asked if I believed it was a sin. I thought to myself, that’s a weird question to ask someone, but I just quoted a Bible verse… I quoted what God had to say about that sin and nine other sins, but it was in the list of sins… As we were doing ‘Duck Dynasty,’ the upper crowd at AE decided to drop the ax on me without first looking into what went down.
At what point is it appropriate to make your point? I just kind of wanted to dig into that, i would hope we could see the flag and realize even in our differences that it kind of pulls us together although, we see maybe it doesn’t. I’ll still stand [during the National Anthem]cause that’s what I’m going to do and just because someone -- especially our guests that came in -- just because they don’t’ doesn’t make me dislike or hate them at all. I can understand it better.
During the (former U.S. President Barack) Obama administration, pressure on rights connected with TPP (trade) negotiations helped the cause of human rights activists and political dissidents, the early visit of Prime Minister (Nguyen Xuan) Phuc in 2017 to the Trump White House saw human rights completely dropped from the agenda.
This is the start of the downward slide for what little remains of political and press freedom in Singapore.

President Trump should raise human rights concerns with Kim Jong Un, but I would be very surprised if he does, he will not let human rights stand in the way of a deal, that's for sure.

Human Rights Watch's going to be very important for front-line states to provide full and unimpeded access to the UNHCR and assess whether they are eligible, the one-year deadline is only going to happen if there are impartial assessments( of refugee status claims) by international agencies like the UNHCR.
Australia is basically paying blood money to a much poorer, less developed state with a shoddy record of refugee protection to take people that Canberra doesn't want, when they get there, the refugees will find huge hurdles to integrate, jobs that are few and far between, and a resentful local population wondering why this group should get a time-limited year of Australian assistance when ordinary Cambodians do not.
The Singapore judicial system’s shameful recourse to using torture – in the form of caning – to punish crimes that should be misdemeanors is indicative of a blatant disregard for international human rights standards, one of the defendants said that sentencing day was the darkest day of his life, but in reality every day that Singapore keeps caning on its books is a dark day for the country’s international reputation.
This is a tally sheet exercise, with the Thai side trying to figure how many cases and how many officials the U.S. government wants prosecuted in order to give an upgrade, thailand's efforts this year have been a lot of talk, shuffling of assignments at government inter-agency committees, but little substantive action to effectively end trafficking.
Never before has a group of villagers successfully sued the government to require they clean up an industrial site, success here could lead to further lawsuits pressing for responsibility for industrial poisoning of communities in seriously affected areas like Map Tha Phut in Rayong, and the gold mines in Loei and Phichit provinces.
This is a test case for whether rule of law really means anything in Thailand when the poor and powerless take on a state agency that has been negligent, if the (Pollution Control Department) can defy an order from the Supreme Administrative Court without facing severe consequences, it spreads the word that government agencies can do what they want.
