my thoughts on some weird ideas of the fanatical religious right.

Filed under: Bigotry, Gender, Health, Homosexual, News, Political, Religion — Scottie @ 22:55

I am waiting for the laundry to get done, and then I have to go to bed as I have a doctors appointment first thing in the morning.   However I admit somethings confuse me and so far here is a minor list.

  • How can a state supreme court over rule a federal judge’s orders, even several federal judges.   Any first year law student knows the supremacy clause of the constitution and these guys are thought to be lawyers.   So here are some people letting their personal beliefs over rule the rule of law in our country.   Here is a group so committed to stopping what they don’t want they are violating the law, and even showing they are willing to repeat the actions of “Wallace in the school house door way”  You would have thought they would have learned.  http://www.lgbtqnation.com/2015/03/ala-supreme-court-orders-probate-judges-to-stop-issuing-same-sex-marriage-licenses/

  • The idea that rights of the minority are not to be subject to the will of the majority is well recorded in our constitution.   However some people think that their ideas have a greater position.   Look it is well known that king George did not think the colonists ( our forefathers had rights ) and we did, and the blacks were not to have rights and yet they did.  If we let the people of the time vote on blacks rights , well they would still be slaves, and if we let the people of the time vote on mixed race couples, it would still be outlawed.   The same reasons used then against them are used today against gay rights.   Rights of people are rights.   It means the same.   Learn from history people.   http://www.ontopmag.com/article.aspx?id=20498&MediaType=1&Category=26

  • This compares to cross burning’s and hate crime vandalism. Look no one has the right to take and destroy other peoples belongings.   It really is that simple, if it doesn’t belong to you, leave it alone.   i have had the horrible experience of waking up to find your stuff being stolen.    This is worse, imagine running to make sure your children were OK and then trying to shield them from this act.  No drinking doesn’t give this guy a pass.  He terrorized a family with children.  Think if it had been your home, your stuff, your flag, your CHILDREN.   Time to make sure this stuff stops and the message is clear.   http://www.queerty.com/gay-couples-pride-flag-burned-by-neighbor-outside-their-home-20150302
  • ————————————————————————————————————————————-
  • OK some people just refuse to see the truth even when it is shoved in their face.  So many religious fanatics get the idea that “hiv and aids are a homo disease” and they are so far wrong it is scary.   First hiv and aids is well know on how it is transmitted and how it started and where it came from.   Also it is clear that it effects far more heterosexuals in the world than gays.  It started in the heterosexual communities and it spread there the fastest.   It is proven.   I get so angry when I hear the uneducated claim it is a gay thing when the knowledge is so available.   I wonder if the people who cling to this false idea are embarrassed when they are shown the truth, the data on the infections and all the indications of how wrong they are.   They simply have two choices, they can admit they are stupid and uneducated, or they can admit the facts don’t matter to them.   http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/david-barton-bible-says-there-will-never-be-vaccine-hiv-because-aids-penalty-homosexuality

  • I was not going to post this one until I listen to the audio which screamed ” not promoting the GODLY WOMANHOOD!   What the heck.  SO girls and females are not totally subservent to men so that is ungodly.   Get the heck back to the 1600’s please.   This who view that to be holy one gender must totally be the slave of the other is so disgusting I had to post this.   Do not let any one think that any deity would have any gender less than another.  It is stupid, it is a way for males to enslave females and it makes no sense.   http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/beware-lesbian-abortion-cookies-rights-history-boycotting-girl-scout-cookies
  • —————————————————————————————————————————
  • This is importaint.  Dispite some people not understanding the fact is that we know now that many people are not in the right gender.   Some people really are born with the wrong sex organs and because of that people try to force them into gender molds that are not correct for them and very harmful.   It is sad that so many people have to wait almost till the end of their lives to try to fix the problem.   This is not a fad, it is not an easy thing for any person.  Look if you don’t feel right in your body it really is no one else’s right to force anything on you.  I can not understand why so many people, mostly men , get all upset and fight this so.  You would think they are being forced to undergo gender reassignment them self.   You would think it involved their bodies when it doesn’t.   Look I know it happens at a young age because my own nephew told me at age 7 he wished he was a girl, that he wanted to be a better girlfriend, that he did not understand why he was forced to pretend to be a boy when in his mind he was a girl.   Now at the time I was snuggling with being gay in a family that had no room for either homo’s nor gender questioning so I did not have much chance to help him or my self.   So unless it is your gender being talked about, lets let the people in the know, the doctors and medical community deal with it, and they say help these people change to the gender they feel they are.    http://m.motherjones.com/politics/2015/02/transgender-inmate-sues-georgia-prisons-torture

  • WOW these boys are truly nuts.   Do they really believe these things or are they trying to get more attention? I wondered about the last one where they say gays like sex because of the devil?  Does this mean they don’t like sex.   Do straight people not like sex?   Maybe that is why they are afraid of gay marriage, because they all hate sex?  Weird.  http://www.queerty.com/the-world-according-to-the-benham-brothers-20150303
  • ——————————————————————————————————————————–
  • First they have no idea of the history of arraignment and many people have tried to explain it to them.  Plus they are so dumb that they can’t figure out not only history but the Constitution and the founding fathers.   They have become so myopic in their views as to be almost not worth paying attention to.   So you can skip this one, it is lame and so are they.   http://www.rightwingwatch.org/content/brian-brown-gay-marriage-victory-threatens-gun-rights-future-republic

Charlotte, NC City Council Rejects LGBT Non-Discrimination Ordinance in 6-5 Vote: VIDEO| Gay News | Towleroad.

My good friend Richard and I have been talking about this all morning.   We both served in situations that were co-ed, where the bathrooms were unisex.  In my case all toilets were individual stalls, all shower rooms were individual rooms, and the shared areas were the sinks and stuff like that.   It was never a problem to have both sexes in the bathroom at the same time.    I some times laugh at people who make assumptions that the way we do things here in the USA is the way it is done everywhere, always.   It is not.   As shown by the following comment left on the web post I linked to.   Now I love talking to Richard as he is smart, far smarter than I , he can see the points I miss, and he is not afraid to speak his mind in an open non judgmental or pushy way.   He says what he believes, reads or listens to what I believe, and either agrees or doesn’t and lets me know why.  I like that.  I have never felt it is my job to force others to see everything the way I do.  I only have to be true to my self.  My ideas and the reasons for them.  I feel it is important to listen to others even if I don’t agree.  I may see something to change my mind in what they say.  Or I may become even more convinced I was in the right place on a subject.   However I feel I owe it to my self to be able to present the best argument for why I feel or believe as I do.   I also respect those who I have found to have more expertise or have a better education on a subject, and people like Richard or Randy who are just naturally very very smart to begin with.   Hugs

““All over the world, there are restrooms for men and restrooms for women,” said Driggs, a Republican. “It does not place an unreasonable burden on them and it does not stigmatize them.” — Guess he’s never actually been to a European country. Many European countries have unisex bathrooms. It isn’t a big deal.

Man Who Threw Beer on Native American Kids Charged With Disorderly Conduct – ICTMN.com

I post this for those who asked me to keep them up dated with what more I could find out.  I do not agree with the charges and I agree with the parents that the charge is way to light for what the man did.   He should be charged with assault on children at a minimum.   I also agree it is simple bigotry against the Native people that is preventing the harsher charges.   I hope the the parents and the kids know there are many people out here who are sorry for what was done to them and wish there was a way to make it go away, to make the person responsible be punished for what he did to them.  Hugs

Man Who Threw Beer on Native American Kids Charged With Disorderly Conduct – ICTMN.com.

A man who hurled beer and racial slurs at a group of Native American kids last month at a hockey game in Rapid City, South Dakota, will be charged with disorderly conduct, officials said Wednesday in a statement.

Suspect Trace O’Connell, 41, of Philip, faces up to 30 days in jail and a $500 if convicted, police said. O’Connell is accused of pouring beer on a group of Native American students during a Rapid City Rush hockey game at the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center. He’s also accused of telling the kids to “go back to the reservation.”

‘Strive To Serve God’ Mission Statement In Michigan City’s Mission Statement | The Abandoned Piety Blog.

Some people, mostly the Christians who support making a theocracy out of the country like O’Brien, argue that it’s a waste of public resources to fight these issues.  I wholly disagree.  Every little step we allow these people to take in ruining our secular government compounds the issue.  It all piles up.  They don’t stop with simple phrase displays, once they know they can get away with it they will take more and more bold steps.  It also gives them the excuse that if it’s already been done here and there, it shouldn’t be a big deal to keep going and also fuels their bullshit excuse that it’s historical.

Everyone who values the Establishment Clause and the profound freedom it bestows needs to take notice of these moves and tell Christians “no more” and “also remove the violations you’ve already imposed”.  America is not a Christian nation, it never has been, and we need to ensure it never becomes one.  Make no mistake, that’s exactly what these people think and want.

Survey: NPR’s listeners best-informed, Fox viewers worst-informed | Poynter..

People who watch no news at all can answer more questions about international current events than people who watch cable news, a survey by Fairleigh Dickinson University’s PublicMind finds.

NPR and Sunday morning political talk shows are the most informative news outlets, while exposure to partisan sources, such as Fox News and MSNBC, has a negative impact on people’s current events knowledge.

People who watch MSNBC and CNN exclusively can answer more questions about domestic events than people who watch no news at all. People who only watch Fox did much worse. NPR listeners answered more questions correctly than people in any other category.

The Oklahoma Emergency Bill To Whitewash America’s Attrocities Throughout History In High School Classes | The Abandoned Piety Blog

The Oklahoma Emergency Bill To Whitewash America’s Attrocities Throughout History In High School Classes | The Abandoned Piety Blog.

The Black Robe Regiment is a resource and networking entity where church leaders and laypeople can network and educate themselves as to our biblical responsibility to stand up for our Lord and Savior and to protect the freedoms and liberties granted to a moral people in the divinely inspired US Constitution.

These people are a danger to this country, especially to children.  History may not change as it’s impossible to effectively erase the past, however it can be obscured and retroactively erased.  Imagine new generations growing up thoroughly indoctrinated in the Christian religion, unable to distinguish fact from fiction and having been told that slavery was just fine; that blacks enjoyed it, that the Native Americans willing gave up their land to white supremacy, and that every war America has been in and will ever be in is justified.

That’s not to say all wars have been pointless, of course.  The bigger picture is to have a generation who grow up routing for an America that goes where it wants in the world and does what it wants.  All under the guise of the Christian god’s approval and a ‘world-police’ mindset where America can do no wrong and commit no atrocity.

Question Everything • Jesus has been described as the best known figure….

This was interesting.  I often wondered if a man was alive in that time what he would have for looks, customs and ideals.   Seems someone worked it out for me.   Hugs.
