At long last, Pastor Ernest Angley , the year-old head of Grace Cathedral church in Akron, Ohio who admitted to having gay sex with one of his staffers in an audio recording obtained by the Akron Beacon Journal , has settled a lawsuit alleging sexual abuse. The settlement includes a non-disparagement clause, which means neither side will be able to trash-talk the other in the future. Just a few years ago, members of his church sued Angley for never paying them despite working at his for-profit Cathedral Buffet restaurant. The case that was settled last week involves a former staffer, Brock Miller , who sued for sexual abuse that occurred over the course of several years.

By the end of the gunfire, fourteen Nazis and four policemen had been killed; the putsch had failed and the Nazis' first bid for power had lasted less than twenty-four hours. The seats won by his party were much reduced in the December election, and his name was too far down the list to return him to the Reichstag. He felt great contempt for the "legalistic" path the party leaders wanted to follow and sought seclusion from public life.
Robert Biedroń, Nazism’s Pink Hell
Upon the rise of Adolf Hitler, gay men and, to a lesser extent, lesbians , were two of the numerous groups targeted by the Nazi Party and were ultimately among Holocaust victims. Beginning in , gay organizations were banned, scholarly books about homosexuality, and sexuality in general, were burned, and homosexuals within the Nazi Party itself were murdered. The Gestapo compiled lists of homosexuals, who were compelled to sexually conform to the "German norm. Between and , an estimated , men were arrested as homosexuals, of whom some 50, were officially sentenced.
