Fact check: 'Kingdom of God' comment by SCOTUS contender Amy Coney Barrett is missing context in meme

  Fact check: 'Kingdom of God' comment by SCOTUS contender Amy Coney Barrett is missing context in meme A 2006 remark about the "Kingdom of God" is missing context in a meme that also falsely attributes views on ending separation of church and state. The widely cited reference to Barrett encouraging a “Kingdom of God” is taken out of context.

The offending man was found guilty of committing a hate crime, reckless use of fire, and being a repeat offender after h. A US judge in the state of Iowa passed down a judgment of at least 15 years in prison for 30-year-old Adolfo Martinez, who stole an LGBT pride flag from a church and burned it.

After the interview is seemingly over, he gestures wildly while insisting that "even nonbelievers would agree with [me] on any given day" that he did the right thing by burning the flag . It was not clear whether he was intoxicated at the time of his arrest , and he was not charged with public intoxication.

Clemens said witnesses followed Arndt from a distance, giving updates to police, and a short time later he was found nearby and arrested on one count of aggravated assault.

Police said they would be contacting the owner of a nearby shop—Zambroz, on Phillips Avenue—to enquire about damage caused to their flag.

"That's one of the things we're looking at, if there is any damage to the flag," Clemens said. "Obviously we had the threat with the knife so that was the serious charge. There is a possibility that there could be some other charges."

In a widely reported case in Iowa last December, a man was jailed for 15 years for stealing a pride flag from a church and setting it alight outside a strip club.

Adolfo Martinez, 30, admitted during an interview from prison that stealing the flag from Ames United Church of Christ was motivated by homophobia.

"I burned down their pride, plain and simple. It was an honour to do that. It's a blessing from the Lord," he said.
