Citing the Bible, TN School Board Member Rejects Gay-Straight Alliance Club

Again a person using their religious beliefs to force others to obey their version of god.  This person says his god comes before all state laws, federal laws, the bill of rights, and even the constitution.   He wants a theocracy built on his his god and his version , forcing everyone to do as he sees fit.   He is a religious asshole.  There is more at the link below.     Hugs

Tecky Hicks, who works as a Baptist pastor, said that if the GSA group was formed, he would urge parents to pull their kids out of school.

Hicks told board members he took the same oath as [Vice Chairman Debbie] Shedden, but he believes the Bible supersedes the Constitution of the U.S., the Bill of Rights, the Magna Carta, the Mayflower Compact, school board policy, the state constitution “and everything else.”

“Therefore, based on that, there’s no way under God’s heaven I can approve any such club in our schools,” Hicks told the board. “I’ve got a daughter who has a child in second grade this year, and she has already made the decision that if something like this is approved by our board, she’s pulling her kid out of school. I would suggest, and I’ll make it a public statement, that every person in the county who has that privilege — do it.

“I’ll take my stand on what I believe above and beyond anything man has ever made because the Bible plainly teaches that we are to subject ourselves to the authority that’s over us as long as the authority doesn’t overstep the bounds of what God has said it ought to be. God settled that over 2,000 years ago, folks, and I’m going to stand on it until hell freezes over.

He took an oath… and then promptly refused to follow it because being a religious bigot matters more than doing what’s best for students. That’s his philosophy. While the district might be better off without families that think like him, it’s a sad statement that the existence of a club for students he thinks are Hell-bound is enough to make a push for homeschooling. (Would he say the same thing about a club for atheists? Jews? Hindus?)

Catholic Archbishop: If Your Religion Contradicts the Law, Ignore the Law

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2018/12/14/catholic-archbishop-if-your-religion-contradicts-the-law-ignore-the-law/

 

The Archbishop of Dublin Diarmuid Martin is telling Catholics that they are not obligated to follow lawsthat contradict their faith.

Far from separation of church and state, Martin wants Church to simply ignore the State.

Concerning the Regulation of Termination of Pregnancy Bill, which goes before the Seanad this week, Archbishop Martin said, “There’s a clear Catholic teaching that if legislation is against the basic principles of faith of people that they can’t be forced to carry it out.

Asked whether this right of Catholics not to obey laws in certain circumstances also included legislation on divorce, same-sex marriage and family planning, Archbishop said: “There’s a hierarchy of truths in Catholic teaching and the centrality of some aspects. If people have conscientious objection it’s a very important thing to remember it. For me, very often social change comes from people who stand up for their commitments.”

Martin’s assessment might make former Kentucky clerk Kim Davis proud, but if everyone chose to follow only the laws they wanted to, while claiming a religious defense for ignoring the rest, society wouldn’t function. Martin’s fine with faith trumping civil laws… but I have a hunch he would be saying something very different if we were talking about Muslims and other non-Christians instead of fellow Catholics.

Seriously disturbing video. Watch: High School Staff Forces Bathroom Stall Door Open While Trans Girl Uses Toilet

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2018/11/watch-high-school-staff-forces-bathroom-stall-door-open-while-trans-girl-uses-toilet/

She was only trying to use the bathroom when school staff forced open the stall door, exposing the minor to several leering adult staff members.

In a deplorable demonstration of transgender discrimination and poor judgment, staff members at Osseo Senior High School in Maple Grove, Minnesota, can be seen on video forcing open a bathroom stall door because a transgender teen was using the toilet.

The transgender teen said she was “scared and violated” when the group of adults forcibly opened a private stall while she used the bathroom in her Minnesota school.

The teen captured her horrifying ordeal on video:   Remember to turn on the sound.  

***Please go to the link above to view the video as it is not posting correctly here. ***

more information at the link.   A bunch of perverts force open a bathroom stall while a child is using the toilet.    They then keep the door open.   This is the nightmare that republicans keep saying will happen if you let trans people use the bathroom they identify with, but it is not the trans person doing this, it is the horrible bigots.    The bigots are a threat.   Think of the huge outrage there would be if they had done that to a non-trans student.     Hugs

Hair Furor Floats Idea Of State Television Network

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Criminal, Fascism, Harm, News, Political, Questions — Tags: , , — Scottie @ 08:23

Donald Trump, as we’ve known for 40 years, hates to cede the spotlight. So just as NASA was making an ultra-rare successful Mars landing that was carried live on some outlets, the president of the United States decided to float the idea of a state-run television network “to show the world the way we really are, GREAT.”

Trump’s idea — or that of whomever he heard say it this morning — would be laughable if it weren’t so ludicrous. And authoritarian. His first tweet is a slam at CNN, which “doesn’t do great based on ratings, outside the U.S.,” and he appears to think the real ratings gold could come from Citizens of the World being told what’s really going on here in ‘Murica.

Autopsy Reveals Transgender Woman Was Beaten In ICE Custody, Died After Days Of Untreated Dehydration

Why, damn it why does this stuff have to happen.  She was seeking asylum because a gang got her, and four of them raped her.  So she get to our country, and gets beaten to death at an ICE detention facility.  The country she thought would be her salvation killed her just as the gangs she ran from would have.   Sad hurting hugs.

https://www.joemygod.com/2018/11/autopsy-reveals-transgender-woman-was-beaten-in-ice-custody-died-after-days-of-untreated-dehydration/

A transgender woman who died in Immigration and Customs Enforcement custody at a privately operated detention center was likely physically abused there, according an autopsy report released Monday, and died after several days of severe, untreated dehydration.

Roxsana Hernández Rodriguez, a 33-year-old transgender woman from Honduras, died on May 25, nine days after being transferred to a dedicated unit for transgender women at the Cibola County Correctional Center in New Mexico, which is operated under contract by CoreCivic, the second-largest private prison company in the United States.

Christians Claim Dead Missionary Was A ‘Martyr’ – Call For Punishment Of Tribes People

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Atheism, Harm, News, Political, Questions, Reason, Religion — Scottie @ 13:04

https://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2018/11/christians-claim-dead-missionary-was-a-martyr-call-for-punishment-of-tribes-people/

And at least one prominent Christian group, International Christian Concern, is calling for the punishment of the isolated tribes people. According to reports the organization is calling Chau’s death a “murder,” and wants the native people responsible for Chau’s death “brought to justice.”

However, other, more reasonable people, would call the killing of Chau self-defense, given the real threat Chau posed to the Sentinelese people. Not only was Chau determined to corrupt their culture with his ignorant Christian superstition, the arrogant and deplorable Christian missionary was also willing to expose the isolated tribes people to disease and sickness they had no immunity to defend themselves against.
