Hypocrisy. Seems it is all about hate and controlling the sexual activity of others.

The “Save Chick-fil-A” Bill in Texas Is So Much Worse Than People Think

The “Save Chick-fil-A” Bill in Texas Is So Much Worse Than People Think

But American Atheists says this bill is far more dangerous than we might think. That’s because, as written, the bill doesn’t just permit discrimination against LGBTQ people without consequence. In theory, anyone could get immunity from punishment as long as they cite a religious justification for what they did. Those criminals could then sue the State of Texas for damages connected to the criminal charge.

You see what they’re talking about: Just taking that literally, if a teacher gives you a low grade for not doing your homework, and you say, “Doing homework is against my religion,” that would be a legitimate excuse under the law.

You may think that’s absurd and unlikely, but that’s the point. This bill is written far too broadly. AA says this could affect “Texas schools, local government, the courts, and so many other areas of life.”

 

American Atheists says this goes well beyond mere discrimination, which was bad enough:

No one should get special privileges or immunity to the law based on their religious beliefs.

Unfortunately, this legislation has already passed the Senate. It was passed out of committee without any hearing or consideration of unintended consequences of carving broad religious exemptions into the law.

***It’s just another example of how Republican-dominated legislatures are doing everything they can to implement their goals of a Christian theocracy before people realize what’s happening.***

Franklin Garham doesn’t want kids watching cartoons to know same sex marriages exist and are no big deal

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Family, Fascism, Gender, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 13:55

Days of freak outs by major religious figures are getting more and more silly.   The cartoon did not glorify sin, claim all kids need to be gay, or force kids to be godless and marry their same gender.   It is a secular show in a secular country that showed a normal legal activity.   Grow up already.   I am more worried these same cartoon kids have been in the third grade for 20 or 30 years.  What kind of message is that sending?   Please read the short article at the web page as I am tired of posting dumb shit for today.     Hugs

Texas Senate Revives “Save Chick-fil-A” Bill While Avoiding Public Input

Texas Senate Revives “Save Chick-fil-A” Bill While Avoiding Public Input

Just days after a bill to “save Chick-fil-A” died in the Texas legislature, Republicans have taken special action to resurrect the low-priority bill.

The State House failed to pass that bill. But the State Senate just took up its companion bill, SB 1978 and placed it on a fast track for approval. (Why bother letting the public weigh in on it, right?)

On Monday, the Senate waived rules to allow [Sen. Bryan] Hughes’ bill to be heard in committee without public notice. A few minutes later, the Senate Affairs Committee convened and held a speedy public hearing on the bill with no speakers — probably because no one had notice there would be a debate. When the bill came before the House State Affairs committee last month, dozens of people spoke for and against the bill.

Later, the committee advanced the bill to the full Senate and placed it on the Senate’s intent calendar for Tuesday.

Teenage Pricks : Trumpism’s brand of boy power

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Fascism, Gender, Harm, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Race, Reason — Scottie @ 17:43

An explanation of what drives tRump supporters.   It is not economic, it is the feeling that others are getting away with something they can’t get away with.  The vague feeling that they are not in charge or not in as much power as they once were or fell they should be.  It is something most of us have understood about the deplorables but so many just refused to admit. It is fascism, the ability to bully others and get away with it.   It is a power trip, an ego booster.  Hugs 

Teenage Pricks

But Trumpism took the racial resentment that was always the only successful recruiting strategy of the College Republicans and fused it with the only lesson he ever internalized in his elite education: complete irresponsibility is gloriously liberating. What unites Trump’s older base and his small core of young white devotees is the delight they take in watching him get away with it.

Trumpism’s pitch to young white men is thus a stirringly amoral sort of syllogism: we can’t give you anything material, because we stole it all and are hoarding it, but we can create a world in which you can regularly act on your worst impulses and get away with it. Some city kids are coming to town; here’s a way to racially mock them that won’t get us in trouble.

But when Trump said “this is the day we take our country back,” his “we” referred to a group too exclusive to include anyone from Jordan, Minnesota. And that serves, in another sort of brute syllogism of power, as their own license to unleash their own exclusionary rites of race-driven resentments on their own social inferiors without consequences. Boys will be boys, preying on other boys and girls.

Christian Activist to MO Lawmakers: “We Have a God-Given Right to Discriminate”

Really?  What a thing to brag on.  Really makes your god seem such a great being?  

Christian Activist to MO Lawmakers: “We Have a God-Given Right to Discriminate”

Missouri is one of the states that has no law preventing discrimination against LGBTQ people. The Missouri Nondiscrimination Act (MONA) would do it, but lawmakers just failed in their 21st attempt at passing it, all because Republicans don’t want to alienate bigoted Christians.

Calzone insisted that Christian business owners had every right to discriminate against anyone they wanted.

“I believe that we have a God-given right to discriminate,” he told the committee. “We actually have a God-given responsibility, a duty, to sometimes discriminate,” he added.

…Asked if he believed a restaurant owner could eject someone based on race or religion or gender, Calzone said yes. “If a restaurant owner doesn’t want to serve people with freckles, that should be his choice,” he told the group.

He didn’t stop there, either, comparing the plight of that Christian baker to literal slavery.

“Forcing someone to serve someone they do not want to serve is a form of slavery,” he told The Star Editorial Board in an email.

The good news is that Calzone’s comments weren’t the reason the bill died. The bad news is that the bill still died. There likely won’t be enough time to even take a vote because legislators were too busy listening to the insane rants of a religious bigot. The legislative session ends next Friday, May 17.

Campus Chapter Leader Of Pro-Trump Student Group Filmed Shouting “White Power” And N-Word

These are the people supporting tRump.  These are the people he caters to.  This is what the cult of tRump that is left of the republican party believe in.  How far has the US fallen.   Hugs 

Campus Chapter Leader Of Pro-Trump Student Group Filmed Shouting “White Power” And N-Word [VIDEO]

From the antifa site It’s Going Down:

A video sent to It’s Going Down and already going viral on various Facebook pages, shows the leader of the Las Vegas chapter of Turning Point USA, Riley Grisar, along with a young woman screaming about how they are going to “Rule the Country.” They then go on to yell, “White power! Fuck the n*****s!” A third voice, coming from the person making the video then yells, “Yeah, fuck em!”

Also in the video, Grisar can been seen making the Alt-Right hand sign, a sign which Turning Point USA leader Charlie Kirk has also been photographed making, along with a variety of neo-Nazi, Alt-right, and white nationalist leaders from Richard Spencer to Christchurch mass shooter, who also praised the former Communications Director of Turning Point USA, Candace Owens in his manifesto which argued that white people are being systematically displaced.

Trump Judicial nominee

This is an example of the trash tRump / McConnell are forcing on to the courts.  The country will have to deal with this for generation and many decades.   Most of the nominees are ideologist both religiously and politically.  The believe the laws should support Christianity fervently and only.  No other religion is to be recognized.  Good by secular nation.  They also believe heavily in the Republican far right agenda, and they vote accordingly.  This is a real and present danger to democracy.   Remember these same judges have endorsed discrimination against people for party, religion, race, and LGBTQ+ status.

** Edited to remove the word Republican.   The man is a Democrat who acts like a Republican.   Hugs **

Just got home from my allergy shots.  One arm burns as normal, one of the shots causes a slight swelling and terrible itching.   I first petted each cat and made of them ( I know who the bosses are ) and then turned on the computers.  In my news feeds I found this gem in the comments on a story about a preacher politician in NY City who was attending mandatory sexual harassment seminar and started yelling that he:

“He just started screaming and shouting out: ‘So we’re supposed to be rats? That’s a rat!’” one Council member recalled, pointing out the lawmakers are supposed to call the body’s Equal Employment Opportunity officer if such an incident occurs. 

So here is something to ponder.  As an older gay male, I am not sure if to laugh extra hard or be offended?  Hugs

Nazis Disrupt Holocaust Remembrance Event

Nazis Disrupt Holocaust Remembrance Event [VIDEO]

Jared Holt reports at Right Wing Watch:

Billy Roper and his white supremacist group Shield Wall Network interrupted a Holocaust Remembrance Day event in Russellville, Arkansas, this weekend with a small group of demonstrators who shouted anti-Semitic phrases and carried Nazi flags.

In footage from the event, Shield Wall Network members can be heard chanting “six million more,” which is a reference to the six million Jews murdered during the Holocaust.

Members of Shield Wall Network heckled a World War II veteran and Arkansas Tech University professor as they spoke at the event and the group roamed the streets of downtown Russellville behind a police line.

State Department Appeals Federal Ruling Granting Birthright Citizenship To Child Of Bi-National Gay Dads

Filed under: Bigotry, Children, Family, Fascism, Gender, Harm, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 14:41

When will these bigoted assholes just get over it and stop trying to tear families apart?  The administration just cannot get over skin color and same sex marriages.   Bastards.   They may have to let the gays get married but they do not have to let them have the rights of marriage.  They are chipping away what it means to be married for same sex couples to make it so our marriage mean nothing.   Hugs

State Department Appeals Federal Ruling Granting Birthright Citizenship To Child Of Bi-National Gay Dads

Via press release from Immigration Equality:

Yesterday, the U.S. State Department appealed the decision of a California federal district court that recognized the birthright citizenship of Ethan Dvash-Banks, the child of a same-sex bi-national couple. The government refuses to recognize the validity of Andrew and Elad Dvash-Banks’ marriage, and continues to defend its discriminatory policy, which conditions the recognition of birthright citizenship on a biological link to a U.S. citizen parent.

Aaron C. Morris, Executive Director of Immigration Equality, said, “Once again, the State Department is refusing to recognize Andrew and Elad’s rights as a married couple. The government’s decision to try to strip Ethan of his citizenship is unconstitutional, discriminatory, and morally reprehensible. This is settled law in the Ninth Circuit, which has already established that citizenship may pass from a married parent to a child regardless of whether or not they have a biological relationship.”

Mayor Pete Buttigieg | Real Time with Bill Maher (HBO)

Filed under: Gender, Homosexual, LGBTQ, Love, My Life and Rants, Political, Sex — Scottie @ 17:35

While this man is not my first choice for President, I can totally support him.  I know as a preteen realizing the attractions I had for boys made me a target and “bad” ( at age five my 10 year old sister informed that because guys used me for sex I was queer, something I had no choice about but she told me how bad it was, and so I was bad ) seeing him on TV doing what he is doing would have changed my own opinion of myself.  Back then I had no good role models and was constantly told of all the evils and horrors queers were.   In fact years later as an adult after two tours in the US military I told my adoptive father I was gay.  He recoiled and said I will have to take care of you for the rest of your life because no one will hire you.  This was 1987.  He then went out and bought a grave plot in a local cemetery for me.  He wouldn’t talk to or look at any male friend I might have in his presence.  Of course he still called black people niggers all his life.  Sad hugs

The religion of exclusion

Filed under: Bigotry, Fascism, Gender, Harm, Hate, Homosexual, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Reason, Religion — Scottie @ 16:26

http://infidel753.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-religion-of-exclusion.html

The broadly written Religious Freedom Restoration Act would allow, for example, an [emergency medical technician] to refuse emergency treatment to a gay person or a pharmacist to refuse to refill HIV medication, because God decreed gays and lesbians should be put to death…..the act is so broad it would let a Catholic high school refuse to hire a Muslim janitor, and a DMV clerk deny a new driver’s license to someone who is divorced.

As I’ve said before, the most striking thing about laws like this is that the Christian Right’s core value, the essence of religious freedom in their view, the hill they’ve chosen to die on, is the right to exclude — to refuse service to certain categories of people, to reject them, to stigmatize them, to cast them out.  This is how fundamentalist Christianity, the noisiest and most visible form of Christianity in the United States, is choosing to define and present itself.  This is the face they themselves are putting on their own religion.  It’s not atheists like me defining Christianity as a religion whose core is bigotry.  It’s Christians who are doing that.

As always so much more at the link above.   Hugs

Christian Anti-LGBT Group: Equality Act Will Legalize Pedophilia, Bestiality, Prostitution, Incest, Necrophilia

I am so tired of this shit.  However these crazed hoards of delusional want-to-victims do react as a vocal army to get what they want.   So if you can, please counteract them with calls and letters of your own to your congress people.   Thanks and hugs.

Christian Anti-LGBT Group: Equality Act Will Legalize Pedophilia, Bestiality, Prostitution, Incest, Necrophilia

Bryan Fischer writes for the American Family Association:

If the “Equality Act” were to become law, pedophiles would have special privileges and protections under the law that you and I would not have. Because religious exemptions are specifically forbidden in the bill, pedophiles could not be prevented by Trail Life USA (the conservative Christian alternative to the Boy Scouts) from becoming leaders of small boys. And if you have a problem with that, you’re the one who is going to wind up in jail.

Churches could not prevent pedophiles from working with their children and their youth groups. The Roman Catholic Church could not prevent self-admitted pedophiles from becoming priests and working with altar boys. It will not be long before bestiality (sex with animals) becomes a protected category. Prostitution will soon follow, as will incest and necrophilia (sex with dead people).

This is what the future holds if this law passes. If you want to keep our country from becoming the Disneyland of Deviancy, it’s time to bombard our men and women in Congress with phone calls urging them to vote against the “Equality Act.” Why? Because it, in reality, is the “Pedophile Protection Act.”
