In one generation you and I have witnessed this country sliding from a nation who once shared a moral vision based on Judeo-Christian ethic to a nation floundering in moral decay. In one generation we have watched our nation who once believed in lifelong marriages to the same spouse to a divorce rate now well over 50 percent. We have watched in one generation where homosexuality was once criminalized to now we see the criminalization of Christianity. And I could go on and on with the entertainment, with the education, with the life issue.

That “lock the gay away” sentiment may not have been out of place when Harris was pastor of First Baptist Church Charlotte, but no electable politician should long for a time when some of his own constituents would be in prison despite doing nothing wrong.

(While we’re at it, there’s no criminalization of Christianity, either. The government is not raiding churches on Sunday mornings.)

It’s not even the only time he’s said something both nasty and untrue about the gay community. In 2013, Harris, running for U.S. Senate at the time, falsely claimed gay people choose that “lifestyle.”

The Religious Right Appears Intent On Criminalizing Gay Sex Again

Well it has happened again, people using their religion to discriminate in government services.

It did not take long for the idea of religious freedom to discriminate against those you dislike.  It is part of her job, the laws require her to issue the licence but no she wants the men to schedule an appointment with her deputy or go to another town and get what she is required by law to provide.   I am so sick of this damn bigotry.  Bigots for Jesus is a large group it seems.    She is demanding the men be inconvenienced, have to go to lengths a non same sex couple wouldn’t have to do.  This is not equal under the law.  But she doesn’t want to be inconvenienced by doing her job.  It says right in the laws that she can not discriminate against the men, but heck she thinks her god view is above the laws.  This is not about her religious beliefs, this is about her doing the job she is paid to so.

New ‘Religious Liberty Task Force’ Will Promote Christianity, Punish Non-Believers

Bottom line: The new “Religious Liberty Task Force” will promote Christianity, and punish non-believers. It will protect conservative Christians who want to discriminate against women, members of the LGBT population, and others, all in the name of “religious freedom.” In short, our long national nightmare continues, and the theocrats are winning.

This Valedictorian Was Kicked Out of His Christian Parents’ Home for Being Gay

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Education, Family, Harm, Homosexual, News, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 13:21

When Seth Owen was a high school sophomore, his father found out Seth was gay… and he was quickly sent to a counselor (for conversion therapy).

“They made it clear the intention was to make me straight. (That) was their end goal.”

It didn’t work. Seth was still gay. (Shocking!) For a couple of years, this is what life was like until his parents realized Seth was still gay despite their best efforts to turn him straight. Their church didn’t help either, since the pastor was one of those conservative, anti-women’s rights, anti-gay types. Seth asked if they could attend a different church, but that plea went nowhere.

Elections matter and make a big difference. Bigotry is alive and well in the christian community in Tennessee.

Some of the information at the link.

Remember Jeff Amyx, the Tennessee hardware store owner who put up a sign saying “No Gays Allowed” in his window back in 2015?

He just put the sign back up again after the SCOTUS ruling in favor of the Colorado baker who refused to make a cake for a same-sex wedding:

He told WBIR that he was celebrating a “win” after the Supreme Court narrowly ruled in favor of a Colorado baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple…

“Christianity is under attack. This is a great win, don’t get me wrong, but this is not the end, this is just the beginning,” he said. “Right now we’re seeing a ray of sunshine. This is ‘happy days’ for Christians all over America, but dark days will come.”

Defining Freedom … — Filosofa’s Word

Have you noticed that some words seem to have taken on a different meaning in the past few years than they once had? Take, for example, the Alliance Defending Freedom (ADF). It sounds like a decent organization, right? Let’s break it down a bit … Alliance: a union or association formed for mutual benefit Defending: […]

White Christian Privilege

I was challenged recently about my assertion of white christian privilege by Amanda.   Well here is some well known evidence for it.   It does exist and it has continued to cause problems to this very day.   Hugs.

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/friendlyatheist/2018/04/11/under-catholic-church-rule-hollywood-films-couldnt-feature-interracial-couples/

There were movies made during that time that we now consider classics, but they also perpetuated a view of the world that was white, straight, and God-friendly at all times. Movies better reflected reality after the Church got out of the business of policing Hollywood.

How did the Catholic Church impact the “Golden Age of Hollywood”? They made sure that very Hollywood movie from 1934 to 1954 followed a strict moral code that forbade nudity, excessive drinking, mocking the clergy, showing interracial couples (yep), and acknowledging the existence of gay people.

That’s what God wanted, after all.

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

Filed under: Bigotry, Gender, Harm, Homosexual, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 19:46

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.
