This is seriously important.   Words have consequences.

How many times have I been saying that it is just not Muslims that commit acts of terror?   How many times have I said that white guys doing those acts do not get the label.  Please wake up people.  Fascism is here in the USA and it is getting stronger.  Now we are exporting our harmful ideas , instead of exporting the great hope for a better future we use to do.  

Please read the article as it as more information than I am including.   Here is the link again:  http://www.joemygod.com/2018/04/16/quebec-mosque-terrorist-loved-trump-wore-maga-hat-followed-breitbart-infowars-coulter-ben-shapiro/

The Montreal Gazette reports:

Evidence from Alexandre Bissonnette’s computer presented in court Monday indicates the Quebec mosque shooter was obsessed with U.S. President Donald Trump, Muslims, Dylann Roof, mass shootings and feminists.

In the month before the shooting, Bissonnette was checking Trump’s Twitter feed every day and reading news about Trump on a daily basis, according to evidence presented at his sentencing hearing in Quebec City.

Racial Stereotyping: You see a black guy, white guy, pretty girl committing a crime. What you do?

PLease watch this.  I know some of my readers do not like videos, but the time spent is of value.   It shows clearly that even when people claim not to be racist they act very differently to the skin color of the actors.   Thank you to Xena for posting this in her comments section.  Hugs

White Christian Privilege

I was challenged recently about my assertion of white christian privilege by Amanda.   Well here is some well known evidence for it.   It does exist and it has continued to cause problems to this very day.   Hugs.

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2018/04/11/under-catholic-church-rule-hollywood-films-couldnt-feature-interracial-couples/

There were movies made during that time that we now consider classics, but they also perpetuated a view of the world that was white, straight, and God-friendly at all times. Movies better reflected reality after the Church got out of the business of policing Hollywood.

How did the Catholic Church impact the “Golden Age of Hollywood”? They made sure that very Hollywood movie from 1934 to 1954 followed a strict moral code that forbade nudity, excessive drinking, mocking the clergy, showing interracial couples (yep), and acknowledging the existence of gay people.

That’s what God wanted, after all.

Really? We have that many white supremacists race / ethnic bigots

I wouldn’t have guessed there was 17 thousand white supremist in the entire country, much less in one state.  We have a bigger racism bigotry problem than I ever thought.   I ask why we put up statues to a group of traitors to this country?   Confederate generals and politicians waged a war against the USA and  lost.  So why do we post statues and memorials to these people?   Why do people brag about supporting the losing traitors?   Hugs

Theocratic Constitution Party Makes Their CPAC Debut: Sexual Deviants Deserve No Legal Favor Or Protections

Filed under: Bigotry, Gender, Harm, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 19:46

http://www.joemygod.com/2018/02/22/theocratic-constitution-party-makes-cpac-debut-sexual-deviants-deserve-no-legal-favor-protections/

The goal of the Constitution Party is to restore American jurisprudence to its Biblical foundations and to limit the federal government to its Constitutional boundaries.

The above logically leads to this:

No government may legitimately authorize or define marriage or family relations contrary to what God has instituted. We are opposed to any judicial ruling or amending the U.S. Constitution or any state constitution re-defining marriage with any definition other than the Biblical standard.

We reject the notion that homosexuals, transgenders or those who are sexually deviant are deserving of legal favor or special protection, and affirm the rights of states and localities to proscribe offensive sexual behavior. We oppose all efforts to impose a new sexual legal order through any courts or legislatures.

Finally, we oppose any legal recognition of homosexual or civil unions. We affirm the value of the father and the mother in the home and we oppose efforts to legalize adoption of children by homosexual singles or couples.

You’ll be shocked to learn that the Constitution Party raised money for Roy Moore’s Senate run.

Again christians push their god on everyone through the power of the state.

The Oklahoma Senate is getting closer and closer to passing legislation that would require every public school classroom, library, and other state-funded buildings to prominently display the phrase “In God We Trust.”

The bill was pushed through the committee on the backs of politicians who think forced adherence to God and Jesus are more important than the spirit of secularization and the separation of church and state, but there were some objections. 

============================================================================

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2018/02/21/lesbian-couple-sues-trump-admin-after-application-to-be-foster-parents-is-denied/   

                                                         A married lesbian couple, both of whom are professors at Texas A&M University, have sued the Trump administration after being denied the right to serve as refugee foster parents via a government-funded non-profit. They were told they had to “mirror the holy family,” according to the lawsuit.

Fatma Marouf and Bryn Esplin tried to become foster parents for refugee children last year, but Catholic Charities of Fort Worth, which receives taxpayer funds, rejected the application on the basis of their sexual orientation. The charity said they were denied as soon as it became clear they were in a same-sex marriage.

The Catholic Charities of Fort Worth receives taxpayer funding to help find foster parents for refugee children, in the form of sub-grants from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, which receives grants from the Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Refugee Resettlement.

This isn’t the first time in which we’ve seen alleged abuses linked to the Trump administration’s refugee settlement offices. They have also been accused of denying safe abortions to young teen immigrant women, pushing a blatantly biased, anti-choice agenda.

I am often asked why

Filed under: Atheism, Bigotry, My Life and Rants, News, Questions, Reason, Religion — Scottie @ 15:08

I am often asked why I post so much against religions.   The truth is I am defending a secular state from those who would force a theocracy on us.   Think not?   Here is a recent sample from just two websites.     I did not even both to list the many from the friendly atheist http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/  .   What do you think of these:

Pride parade refused.                                       http://www.joemygod.com/2018/02/21/mississippi-town-denies-permit-pride-parade/

The two people who spoke against having the parade were resident Dorothy Isaac and pastor of Josey Creek Missionary Baptist Church Thomas Rogers. Isaac said, “God created Adam and Eve. Do not turn our city into a sin city. It should not be this.”

Porn is a bigger danger to the health of our children than assault weapons.                http://www.joemygod.com/2018/02/21/florida-republican-reps-declare-porn-health-risk-refusing-discuss-ban-assault-weapons/

The House chose not to consider the gun-control bill. Less than an hour later, state Rep. Ross Spano (R) presented his resolution, arguing that viewing porn can lead to both “mental and physical illnesses” along with “deviant, or problematic sexual behaviors.”

A hate group claims it is a church.                                    http://www.joemygod.com/2018/02/20/anti-lgbt-hate-groups-declare-churches-thereby-evading-financial-disclosure-requirements/

This is outrageous. It reeks of Christian supremacy — One set of laws for conservative Christians; another set of laws for everyone else. We all subsidize groups like Liberty Counsel. We have a right to know what they took in and how they spent it. Being tax-exempt is a privilege. It is not a right and it comes with certain responsibilities.

Georgia wants to give adoption agencies the right to discriminate against same sex couples for religious reasons.                                       http://www.joemygod.com/2018/02/20/georgia-senate-advances-anti-lgbt-adoption-bill/

The Georgia Senate Judiciary Committee on Tuesday morning passed a bill that would allow adoption agencies to refuse to place children with same-sex couples based on their religious beliefs. The bill would also prohibit the Georgia Department of Human Services from taking “adverse action” against such agencies. There were no public comments allowed, and the bill passed along party lines and will now head to the Senate floor for a vote.

Parody marriages.                                                          http://www.joemygod.com/2018/02/18/south-carolina-republican-lawmakers-file-bill-seeking-classify-sex-marriage-parody-marriage/

 According to the SC Statehouse website, the bill, entitled the “Marriage and Constitution Restoration Act,” was introduced in the House, read for the first time and referred to Committee on Judiciary on February 15, 2018. “‘Parody marriage’ means any form of marriage that does not involve one man and one woman,” read the bill. “‘Marriage’ means a union of one man and one woman.”

And lastly from Jerry Coyne’s blog https://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/  where he often posts about the dangers of religion. https://whyevolutionistrue.wordpress.com/2018/02/21/jeff-tayler-interviews-lubna-ahmed-and-writes-a-memoriam-for-his-dad/

Over at Quillette, Jeff Tayler has a nice interview with a Muslim apostate who’s new to most of us: Lubna Ahmed. She’s an engineer from Baghdad, and, after going on the Rubin Report via Skype 3 years ago, and proclaiming her atheism and dislike of Islam, she became a pariah in Iraq. She was attacked and got death threats. Ahmed had little choice but to move, and came to the U.S. with the help of the Richard Dawkins Foundation and the Center for Inquiry. Now fairly safe, she speaks freely about Islam.

It’s a far-reaching conversation, and will of course not only be deemed “Islamophobic”, even though it’s about the religion and not the people, but will also make Ahmed an endangered person. For nearly all ex-Muslims in America, or at least those who are vocal about the problems with the faith, are endangered. Some, like Ayaan Hirsi Ali, need bodyguards. Remember when you hear that “all religions are the same” or “Islam is no more dangerous than any other faith,” that apostate Christians, Jews, or Hindus don’t risk murder when they declare their atheism and begin criticizing their former religion. Only Islam motivates people to become fatwa-following killers.

Many religious people will march for days against making a cake of gay people, but only send their prayers for killed kids. Wrong answer religious people.
