Republicans know their voters are white people with no college.

Now you know why regressive Republican hate ‘free college’ initiatives and education, in general. They need the white ‘have nots’ to be vengeful.

Give these people an affordable education free of debt and they will never vote Republican again.

Judge Nap Destroys Fox Talking Point on ‘Secret’ Hearings: Republicans Wrote These Rules

As much as I hate to post anything from Fixed Noise State Propaganda TV this is too good to pass up.   As much as they wanted to be able to accuse the Democrats of doing something wrong, Napolitano corrected them and shot them down.    Hugs

NJ Mayor Refuses to Resign After Delivering Anti-LGBTQ Sermon in Church

NJ Mayor Refuses to Resign After Delivering Anti-LGBTQ Sermon in Church

He complained about what would happen if homosexuality entered schools:

… I got a phone call this week that the Supreme Court of the state of New Jersey just heard a case where it’s now legal, they say it’s legal, for a brother and a sister to marry each other in the state of New Jersey. A brother and a sister! Incest! They have lived together for years, and they heard this case, and the Supreme Court ruled in their favor. They say the next thing coming up is a father and a daughter.

When you let homosexuality in, it opens the door to complete perversion and the church has to — we have to do our job and stand up. Stand up to it.

That’s… a lie. He’s referring to an article that first appeared on a satirical website. (It’s not surprising that a guy who accepts the Bible as true can’t tell fact from fiction.)

Then, referring to how the new law was meant to help kids get comfortable in their own skin, McKelvey remarked, “Well, when you start teaching them the confused stuff, they don’t know what skin they have!” So LGBTQ people are all apparently confused.

This is what misogyny looks like in real life

This is what misogyny looks like in real life. The double standards used to judge Hillary Clinton were never about emails or security, it was always about attacking a woman of power for being a woman.

I have to let everyone know I love this song and it is in my play list, but Ron hates it.  Oh well we do not play it around him.   Hugs

FL Lawmaker Files Repeat Bill Forcing Public High Schools to Offer Bible Classes

A forced theocracy anyone!  State sponsored religion?   Would they want the same for a different religious book?  The Quran Maybe?   Hugs

FL Lawmaker Files Repeat Bill Forcing Public High Schools to Offer Bible Classes

But high schools would still have to offer a “secular program of education” that included:

An objective study of the Bible, including, but not limited to, a course on the Hebrew Scriptures and Old Testament of the Bible; a course on the New Testament of the Bible; and a course on the Hebrew Scriptures, the Old Testament of the Bible, and the New Testament of the Bible. A student may not be required to use a specific translation of the Hebrew Scriptures or Bible as the sole text for the course.

The problem with that legislation was that forcing high schools to offer these classes in Christianity could be seen as an unconstitutional endorsement of religion. (It’s not like anyone was teaching the Qur’an as an elective.) Also, by requiring districts to hire teachers for these classes specifically, Daniels would force them to use money that could have been used to hire teachers in other core subjects. (In theory, by demanding schools hire a Bible teacher to work with, say, a few students per class, an English teacher could be stuck with an excessive roster that could have been alleviated with another teacher in that department.)

Daniels even skipped the first day of the legislative session to go tape a segment for Pat Robertson‘s The 700 Club promoting her bill. When asked about opposition to the bill, Daniels said the only reason people opposed it was that “people hate Christianity so much that they don’t even want people to study the Bible historically or culturally.” She added that the bill revealed “there’s a lot of persecution going on in America against people of faith.”

Daniels, by the way, has a history of promoting Christianity through the government and looking like a fool in the process. In 2017, she condemned witches and warlocks while calling on everyone to pray for Donald Trump. (It didn’t help.) She responded to the Parkland massacre by getting public schools to put up “In God We Trust” signs. (It doesn’t help.) She’s even insisted she cured a friend’s cancer using an audio CD of Bible verses. (She was wrong.)

And she once told a church crowd that she thanked God for slavery.

Do as I say, not as I did

Kentucky Governor, Again, Promotes Meaningless “Bring Your Bible to School” Day

Kentucky Governor, Again, Promotes Meaningless “Bring Your Bible to School” Day

Republican Governor Matt Bevin, of Kentucky, a man who constantly promotes Christianity using his office as a platform, is once again supporting the meaningless “Bring Your Bible to School” day sponsored by Focus on the Family.

What Bevin doesn’t say is that this day isn’t even necessary. There is no law against kids bringing their Bible to school all the other days. They can always read it. They can always pray. Today’s event is promoted as a way for evangelicals to fight back against Christian persecution, which doesn’t exist here, while simultaneously giving Christians the tools they need to persecute others. No wonder it’s brought to you by the same group known for its opposition to LGBTQ+ rights as well as the rights of other vulnerable groups.

At best, this event is useless. At worst, it’s going to encourage kids to push their religion on others and bully gay people in the name of God. Bevin’s endorsement, with the trappings of the office surrounding him, doesn’t make those problems any better.
