Two gay men challenge Tennessee denial of service law

Two gay men challenge Tennessee denial of service lawTwo men have filed a lawsuit against Tennessee and its governor saying their constitutional rights as gay individuals are violated by a new law that allows mental health counselors to refuse to treat patients on the basis of "sincerely held principles."

The law, signed by Republican Governor Bill Haslam in April, has been criticized as discriminatory against the gay community.

The lawsuit, filed on Tuesday by Bleu Copas and Caleb Laieski in the Chancery Court for Anderson County, asks the court to void the statute because it violates the Tennessee Constitution and the U.S. Constitution's 14th Amendment, which guarantees equal protection to all citizens under the law.

Patchy reporting undercuts national hate crimes count

Patchy hate crime reportsThe AP identified more than 2,700 city police and county sheriff's departments across the country that have not submitted a single hate crime report for the FBI's annual crime tally during the past six years — about 17 percent of all city and county law enforcement agencies nationwide.

Advocates worry that the lack of a comprehensive, annual accounting disguises the extent of bias crimes at a time of heightened racial, religious and ethnic tensions. The nation was stunned last June when nine black parishioners were shot dead at a Charleston, South Carolina, church, in an attack labeled a hate crime, and community groups have reported a notable increase in violence against Muslims and mosques in the wake of last year's terror acts in Paris and San Bernardino, California. Gay and transgender people also are regular targets.

Appreciation: Muhammad Ali was a champion in and out of the boxing ring

Muhammed Ali dies at 74As Cassius Clay, which Ali called his "slave name," he was raised a Baptist in a lower-middle class neighborhood of Louisville and had limited formal education. He was an enormously gifted, dedicated athlete who was encouraged to take up the sport by a Louisville policeman who operated a boxing gym.

Thus began an unprecedented, extraordinary journey from humble beginnings in the segregationist South to gold medalist in the light-heavyweight division at the 1960 Rome Games to world-wide acclaim as a conqueror of Liston, Foreman and Joe Frazier in epic ring confrontations.
