BREAKING: Sessions Issues Long-Feared And Sweeping “License To Discriminate” Against LGBT Americans – Joe.My.God.

I am NOT a second class citizen.  I served in two different branches of the military and did two tours of duty.  I demand my rights and will not ask you to give what should already be mine.  Any right a religious person has doesn’t override my rights.  My existence, and rights to Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness is not dependent on the good will of any religious person.  I will not take a long step back to the 1950’s.  This is a secular country not founded as a theocracy.   Hugs

“Today’s guidance by Jeff Sessions proves this Administration will do anything possible to categorize LGBTQ Americans as second-class citizens who are not equal under the law,” said Sarah Kate Ellis, President and CEO of GLAAD. “Freedom of religion is paramount to our nation’s success, but does not give people the right to impose their beliefs on others, to harm others, or to discriminate.

(5) Islam – Behind the Veil – YouTube

Filed under: Children, Facts, Gender, Harm, Political, Questions, Reason, Religion, Sad — Scottie @ 13:09

This is graphic and horrifying because it shows the plight of women under fundamentalism Islam.  Make no mistake there are many religions where men feel they are so much better than women and have the right to rule them as they see fit.  IF the christian religions could get away with it they would also treat women in the most horrible ways.  We can see the way females are minimized in the Jewish religion and in the bible where it says women should be silent.  A great racket for men, to write the book that promotes them as superior so they can then point to the book and claim those superior rights.  Hugs

The 3 Easy Steps to Repeal Marriage Equality – YouTube

Filed under: Bigotry, Gender, Harm, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 12:28

This is scary.  It is what I have been afraid of.  One reason I dislike these so called “freedom of religion” laws.  I don’t understand the deep hatred so many of these right wing religious groups have for gays.  Most of them make it quite clear these laws are designed to let them harm or discriminate against gays.  Specifically gays and transgender.   However how long will it be before someone will claim they can discriminate against blacks because their religious beliefs are based in white supremacy?  Will a public school teacher get the right to refuse to teach Muslim kids due to their deeply held christian beliefs?  This country has had a long struggle with discrimination and bigotry.  We had to install laws to keep people from indulging in hate acts against those groups they did not like.   Once you legally give permission for one group to indulge their bigotry, once you let one group be discriminated against, then other will try to be given the same “rights” and want the laws to let them discriminate against their disliked groups.   Talk about special rights, that is just what these religious groups want.  The special right to discriminate based on their own brand of faith.   I can not understand why they want to push these laws so hard.  Again I don’t  understand why these groups hate gay and transgender people so very much.   Of course the lack of education in the country today, the teaching of faiths over science and history, is a large part of the problem.  Look at the situation in Poland the last year.  They are going through the very thing we are starting now.   Be careful.  Hugs

Donald Trump’s 10 Worst Appointees – YouTube

Filed under: Bigotry, Gender, Harm, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Reason — Scottie @ 15:12

I tweeted earlier today that I was very worried because every cause I hold dear is now under threat by this president elects administration.  All the rights I fought for and wanted, all the equal rights of race and ethnic groups or gender equality, of concerns for the environment, concerns for public education… so much more.   Ron use to laugh because I use to read the news on my Ipad for about three hours before getting out of bed.  I don’t read much news on the news sites right now.  I can’t stand what is happening and I really fear the damage, the lasting impact of this new president and his team.  I ask every gay person, such as the log cabin republicans, who supported him how they feel now?  Why did so many vote against their own interest.  They may not have liked Hillary , but she wouldn’t have dismantled the very things important to your life.   This new president and his team will.   The more that comes out the more upset I get.   Be safe, be well, hugs

‘We don’t believe him’: Dan Savage rejects Trump’s attempt to foster LGBT-Muslim tensions

Source: ‘We don’t believe him’: Dan Savage rejects Trump’s attempt to foster LGBT-Muslim tensions

Columnist and activist Dan Savage bluntly rebuked Donald Trump on Tuesday for his response to the Orlando mass shooting attack.

“We’re not gonna fall for it,” Savage told MSNBC host Chris Hayes. “You can’t draw a clean line between the LGBT community and the Muslim community because there are LGBT Muslims in the United States and all over the world. Muslims are a part of the LGBT community, not distinct from it. LGBT people come from all races, all faiths, all ethnic backgrounds, all classes. And Donald Trump attempting to pit the queer community against the Muslim community is not going to fly. We don’t believe him.”

The presumptive GOP presidential candidate has already drawn heavy criticism — includingfrom within his own party — for doubling down on his call to ban Muslim immigration into the US in the wake of the attack. Hayes argued that Trump had also employed “a certain kind of European right-wing politics” in which he uses anti-Muslim and anti-immigration rhetoric to paint himself as an ally to LGBT Americans.

“Hillary Clinton can never claim to be a friend of the gay community as long as she continues to support immigration policies that bring Islamic extremists to our country and who suppress women, gays and anyone else who doesn’t share their views or values,”Trump said. “Ask yourself, who really is the friend of women and the LB and LBGT community: Donald Trump with his actions or Hillary Clinton with her words?”

But Savage argued that Trump has also promised to undo the legality of same-sex marriage.

“Donald Trump is the enemy of the LGBT community just as he is the enemy of the Muslim community,” said Savage. “Beating up on what is in the United States a vulnerable minority group isn’t the way that you impress other members of other vulnerable minority groups to win their support.”

This is a hard video to watch, but it is well worth it. Several very important things are talked about. First the idea that should concern all of us, in the video the cleric and politicians are trying to impose and force everyone to live under their religious laws as the clerks see them. No exceptions no having a different view. sound familiar? It really should, because that what the fundamentalist, the extremists, and all the religious leaders that want to repeal all advances in human rights to force every one to live by their version of their personal religious code. To me this is supper scary because this is the same thing that the religious right wants to do in this country. In Muslim countries with Islam as the religion they call the biblical laws “sharia laws”. It means the holy book is the supreme law of the land and everyone must be held to it. Here in the USA many christian groups want to force everyone to do that very same thing, to live by their religious views, only their views, and you have no say in your life but are forced a point of the gun of law, religious law, to follow them. That is simply christian sharia law. Yet while the people like Ralph Reed, Pat of the 700 club, Bryan Fisher an the AFA, or any of the religious groups that spout hate and lies to pretend they are not bigots, just saving the children. These groups are a huge threat to liberty in this country, not same sex marriage, not non discrimination laws, but the idea that they want to restrict your rights, your freedoms, your every thought and deed to conform to their personal view of one religion. Not to mention there are I read 1400 different christian sects, which every single one says they are the only true on , the only religion and they all insist you be forced to follow them.

Second on the punishment they hand out.. seems barbaric and horrible to us right? We are an enlighten society. However several republican members of our own congress have called for similar measures against law abiding gay citizen. Yes our own congress and many states have tried to pass laws that call for prison or other harm to people who are gay. One congress person wanted to quarantine all gays on an island. How many times have we heard a jerk in power say that being gay was the same as a child steamroller and that only gays spread disease, and my favorite, all the hurricanes and natural “act of God” happenings are the fault of gays as god is giving us warnings to get rid of those gay people. How much is done to pander to their base, I don’t know , but as a gay man who has fought all my life for the simple freedoms and rights every tone straight person has, I can tell you how scary these religious groups are. So lets remind all those people who try to make us live by their religion that it is called sharia law, the very same things they are so against when it is another religious trying to enforce it.

One last thing, if your talking to someone and they say the founding fathers were deeply religious, they were tight with god and they wanted god involved with everything, and that they founded this country to be a christian nation, and that they wanted everyone to be deep in the christian faith, tell them they are full of shit. Tell them to stop getting their history for the waked out answers in genesis web site. Go look at the truth and you will find that your church school or home schooling fanatic mom did not tell you the truth. OK I am not going to drag this out, there is so much more to say, but dealing and refuting these jerks is a full time job in it self. Many hugs to all and best wishes.
