The couple had been dating for nearly two years before they were engaged. And a fairytale proposal deserves a storybook event, so the Kunal Ghose, 29, and Jason Aronne, 32, had two spectacular celebrations in San Diego.

They invited friends and family and had a large wedding party. “Jason’s family is like a true Italian family,” Ghose explained. “It’s huge and full of fun people, and they are all coming to wedding and Sangeet. From my side, only my younger sister supports me; my father has distanced himself from me and my lifestyle here. Hopefully one day he comes around.”

Aronne wore a khaki-colored suit with a red shirt and Ghose wore traditional red-and-gold Indian sherwani. The grooms exchanged custom rings—Aronne’s 18K white gold with black and white diamonds from Charles Koll; Ghose’s platinum with 1.5 carat diamonds—and included their pooches in their walk down the aisle.

Enslaved Africans Were the First to Celebrate Ramadan in the United States.
In line with the start of Ramadan this year, its important to note how the history of Islam in America is inextricably linked with the arrival of enslaved Africans. Whilst some may think the second-most practiced faith in the United States does not have a long-standing history in the country, social scientists estimate that 15 to 30 percent, or “as many as 600,000 to 1.2 million,” slaves in antebellum America were Muslims. Forty-six percent of the slaves in the antebellum South were kidnapped from Africa’s western regions, which boasted “significant numbers of Muslims.” 
The failure to not recognize this fact is not only an ignorant viewpoint that erases both the history of early African-American presence and Islam in the US, but also sheds light on racist historical perspectives that exist both in American and Muslim societies.
With many of these individuals coming from communities throughout the Western coast of Africa, many sought to keep their faith intact as best they could, including the observation of Ramadan. Due to the harsh conditions of slavery, this was not always easily done and with time, many traditions were lost through the brutality of the system of slavery that prevented or outlawed the passing on of many significant cultural practices that were brought to the United States through enslaved Africans.

Polish doctor that refused to perform abortion named a “hero”
Dr Bogdan Chazan was visited by an expecting mother (32 weeks into pregnancy), who already had 5 miscarriages before and was worried about her health. It turned out that the fetus had hydrocephalus, undeveloped brain and was missing many bones from its skull. The Doctor refused to perform an abortion and didn’t send the woman to another hospital which could do so (according to polish law, if a doctor doesn’t want to perform an abortion, he has to choose another hospital which will agree to do so). Chazan was named a “local hero” and “true warrior of Jesus in the name of life of the unborn” by many polish politicians and catholic activists. He used conscience clause as an excuse for his actions.
The woman gave birth to the child through a C-section. She and her husband spent 10 painful days watching their deformed child die a horrible death. When she finally decided to speak out, she said:
“During these 10 days, no priest, no pro life activist or even dr Chazan came to see the child, to ask if they can help. It was really hard to look at our child. We knew what was coming, but it was still very hard to cope with”
Congratulations, pro-lifers - another “life” saved, another “happy” child and “happy” family. 


This is not pro-life. This is pro-control. Pro-pain. Pro-heartbreak. Pro-soul death. If you care about the family or the child, then support them after you make this deeply personal and painful choice for them. I’m not sure if Jesus would support abortion, but I am sure that Jesus would not support leaving that family to grieve and care for a dying child on their own with no compassion or care. He is not a hero, and for sure not a hero for Jesus

There ARE laws against this. It’s called rape by deception or fraudulent rape and basically, it’s anytime the conditions of your consent are compromised. In a situation like this, you consented to protected sex. By having sex in a way you did not consent to, a crime WAS committed and he could be charged if any physical effects like pregnancy or STD occurred. Remember, ANY SEXUAL ACTIVITY YOU DON’T CONSENT TO IS RAPE. 
If a guy does this, it’s rape. Call the cops. Ruin his life since he has no problem risking yours. Make him fucking learn. Rapists belong in jail. Rape by deception is rape, not a funny “meme”.
