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

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.

                                                         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.

Bigotry

Remember what the confederate battle flag stands for.  A group of traitors that attempted to overthrow the legitimate elected democratic government of the USA.   No one who honors that flag can claim to love the US and claim to love the USA flag.   You can not hide the fact that the confederate states tried to violently destroy the USA and that action was so they could have the legal right to own another human as property.   So get real about what you are saying if you display that confederate battle flag.   Hugs

Racism is fear based

Filed under: Bigotry, History, My Life and Rants, News, Race, You Tube — Scottie @ 12:22

The rambling rant of mine below is on my idea that racism is based on fear.   If you don’t like videos that is OK, basically I say that videos of the white nationals marching showed they feared displacement.  Videos where white nations claim they a white genocide is happening is again simply fear.   I was inspired to do the video by the following news article:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/the-confederate-flag-resurged-the-kkk-burned-a-cross-racial-tensions-flared-in-a-southern-town/2018/02/02/5d3da728-df86-11e7-bbd0-9dfb2e37492a_story.html?utm_term=.30813b67bd63

And the video here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QjLIohhU7gM

Thanks to those who watch, please comment or go to youtube and rate if you feel so inclined.    I plan to do more rants as I think of things other than the disaster tRump administration to talk about.  Oh don’t get me started on that idiotic Nunes memo.  The BBC is openly mocking the USA on this and shows other countries also thinking we are a laugh stock.  Hugs
