The Many Things In My Toy Box ….my view may change due to verifiable evidence

The program to change the US in to a theocracy continues.   This push comes after tRump notice a softening of his frantic fanatic Christian base.   These people will stop at nothing to change history to their narrative of a founded Christian nation which is not true, and to insert their church doctrine in our secular laws to force everyone to follow the precepts of their religion.   Remember not only do these people want to discriminate against those they do not like, but they want to criminalize people like me just for existing.   They want to copy the very Islamic theocracies they claim to hate yet only they want to do it in the name of their Christian religion.    Please read the article, this is the enemy we fight.     Hugs

Nine Federal Agencies Propose Undoing Obama-Era Executive Order On Grants To Religious Organizations

The Washington Post reports:

Nine federal agencies, including the Education Department, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Justice Department, are proposing rules that would reduce requirements for religious organizations. The rules would lift an Obama-era executive order that compelled religious organizations to tell the people they serve that they can receive the same service from a secular provider.

The Education Department plans to issue guidance that will require local school districts to certify that they have no rules or regulations that conflict with students’ right to pray at school. It will also require states to notify the Education Department if there are complaints against a school system regarding the right to pray. The department does not have similar reporting requirements for states when a school district is accused of other types of discrimination.

The Washington Examiner reports:

Camilla B. Taylor, an attorney with the LGBTQ civil rights group Lambda Legal, said the changes would affect huge swaths of government contracts. She said that when people they think of religious groups and social services, they “think a neighborhood soup kitchen in a basement”

“But we are talking about government grants to the tune of millions and millions of dollars. And increasingly, they are excluding members of the public from receiving services based on who they are,” Taylor said.

The Rev. Stan J. Sloan, chief executive of Family Equality, which supports same-sex families, said “once again, the Trump administration is putting the personal beliefs of taxpayer-funded service providers above the needs of vulnerable children, families and people they serve.”

There are quotes from other news sources and anti-LGBTQ+ groups, and from pro-LGBTQ+ groups.   Hugs

    These are not simply acts of unkindness which are for a certain segment of the population to move them into a preeminent position in what they hope can be a White Christian country. These are acts of evil as people will be judged by what these people feel is appropriate. Gone will be homosexuality as it will be an illegal offence which can be treated in church with aversion therapy or in prison maybe. No more single males adopting children, no more same sex marriages. Probably no more Black people in jobs of authority and Latinos will fare no better.relegated to jobs as waiters. Religion has no place in governance and very little place in schools except maybe to discuss the differences in worship. Maybe each child can experience another religion to see how it feels but they shhould not be practised in schools. Religion is a private thing within a family and that’s where it should stay.

      Hello David. Well said. I agree. Their religion seems to be built on anger and hate and they want to have a government based on that. We can not let that happen. Hugs
