If Baxley wants alternatives to settled science taught — because he’s a Christian who doesn’t accept reality, or a conservative who doesn’t accept reality, or a Republican who doesn’t accept reality — it would come at the expense of teaching kids what experts already know is valid. There’s no controversy about, say, climate change among scientists who study the subject for a living. Much like anti-vaxxers, the only people who doubt the science are people who have a lot to gain from spreading misinformation.

In Montana, Faith-Based Treatment Programs (With No Oversight) Are Harming Kids

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2019/01/22/in-montana-faith-based-treatment-programs-with-no-oversight-are-harming-kids/

These faith-based ministries don’t always staff their facilities with licensed professionals, they don’t always do background checks, and there are multiple cases of alleged sexual abuse against the kids. Religion is getting in the way of public safety of some of the state’s most vulnerable citizens.

Tell me again how religion is good , please? Seems rather immoral to me.

Philips told NBC News that some of the youths who surrounded him had chanted slogans in favour of President Trump’s border wall. “Chants of ‘Build the wall’ and other things that were even worse,” he said. “They were brought up to believe I’m less than human.”

“I’m still trying to process it,” Phillips said. “Who they were, who those young folks were, where they came from and who’s bringing them up. Where were the chaperones? How did this come to take this point? It’s gonna take us all to come together. I’m about prayer, but then you have to have some action to go with it.”

Really shows how not pro-life these kids are

“This Veteran put his life on the line for our country,” Haaland, one of the first two Native American women elected to Congress, wrote on Twitter. “The students’ display of blatant hate, disrespect, and intolerance is a signal of how common decency has decayed under this administration. Heartbreaking.”

Haaland shared the now-viral video that was reportedly taken during the march. The Twitter video surpassed more than 3.7 million views in two hours. The video shows a group of dozens of mostly young men wearing President Trump’s signature red “Make America Great Again” hats and other apparel supporting the president.

Thousands More Migrant Children Were Probably Taken From Families Than Reported

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Criminal, Family, Fascism, Harm, News, Political, Questions, Race — Scottie @ 15:08

But even before the administration officially unveiled the zero-tolerance policy in the spring of 2018, staff of the United States Department of Health and Human Services, the agency that oversees the care of children in federal custody, had noted a “sharp increase” in the number of children separated from a parent or guardian, according to the report from the agency’s Office of Inspector General.

As of December, the department had identified 2,737 children who were separated from their parents under the policy and required to be reunified by a federal court order issued in June 2018.

But that number does not represent the full scope of family separations. Thousands of children may have been separated during an influx that began in 2017, before the accounting required by the court, the report said.

Thus, the total number of children separated from a parent or guardian by immigration authorities is “unknown,” because of the lack of a coordinated formal tracking system between the Office of Refugee Resettlement, the arm of Health and Human Services that takes in the children, and the Department of Homeland Security, which separated them from their parents.

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2019/01/13/indiana-gop-legislator-sponsors-bill-to-teach-creationism-in-public-schools/

Indiana State Sen. Dennis Kruse is one of the most anti-science, pro-forced Christianity legislators in the country. This is a guy who co-authored a bill to require recitation of the Lord’s Prayer in public schools, wanted Creationism taught in science classrooms, and tried making it illegal for kids to learn sex ed in school without their parents’ permission.

He’s just full of horrible ideas… yet he’s been an elected state official since 1989. Which is to say people keep re-electing him because he’s bad at what he does.

Again Christians think freedom of religion only applies if your religion is christian.

I share this to show how many Christians think freedom of religion applies only to their religion.  I just read of a political in Tennessee who claims only Christians should be allowed to hold office in this “Christian” nation.  Many churches and church schools teach that to students and they become adults thinking that is the truth.  We are becoming a Christian fascist nation soon to lose our civil rights and become a theocracy.   Even as religions lose members the evangelical christians are making a huge push to take over all aspects of government local, state, and federal.   Hugs

‘Now my baby has gotten justice’: Grieving father reacts to arrests in Jazmine Barnes slaying

It seems it was not racism, but possible gang violence.   The driver of the attacking vehicle says they thought it was someone else and they fired into the car without checking.  I do not care, they killed without a care for taking life, they were set on killing.  They should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.  Hugs

Ultimately, a tip passed from civil-rights activist Shaun King to Gonzalez’s inbox during the middle of the week led investigators to Black’s Instagram account. The tip indicated that Black was driving the car with another man as a passenger.

The suspects did not resemble the sickly thin man with blue eyes and hints of stubble depicted in a sketch composite compiled with the help of Jazmine’s sister. Both of the suspects were black.

“We do not believe in any way that the family, as we’ve said from the beginning, that they’ve been involved in anything nefarious,” Gonzalez said. “It’s just went down very quickly. The gunfire erupted. We’re talking about small children. They witnessed something very traumatic. It’s likely the last thing they did see was indeed that truck and the driver in that truck.”
