The Montgomery Advertiser reports:

The editor of a small-town Alabama newspaper published an editorial calling for “the Ku Klux Klan to night ride again” against “Democrats in the Republican Party and Democrats [who] are plotting to raise taxes in Alabama.”

“If we could get the Klan to go up there and clean out D.C., we’d all been better off,” Sutton said. Asked to elaborate what he meant by “cleaning up D.C.,” Sutton suggested lynching. “We’ll get the hemp ropes out, loop them over a tall limb and hang all of them,” Sutton said.

Start now please

The Salt Lake Tribune reports:

Salt Lake City police are asking the public for help identifying a man who hit another after asking if he was gay. The assault is captured in an eight-second video posted to Twitter on Sunday by Sal Trejo and quickly spread through social media.

The assault took place downtown and the video starts with the suspect asking “Are you gay though?” Trejo responds, “Oh, I am.” That’s when the man smacks him with his right hand.

ABC News reports:

Trejo claimed the man punched him in the arm, pulled a knife on another member of his group and shoved one of his female friends.

Japanese Newspaper: Prime Minister Nominated Trump For Nobel Prize “At The Request Of The US Government”

Reuters reports:

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe nominated U.S. President Donald Trump for the Nobel Peace Prize last autumn after receiving a request from the U.S. government to do so, the Asahi newspaper reported on Sunday.

The U.S. government had sounded Abe out over the Noble Peace Prize nomination after Trump’s summit in June last year with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, the first meeting between a North Korean leader and a sitting U.S. president, the Asahi said, citing an unnamed Japanese government source.

The Black Death is back, and so are these other diseases you thought were gone

However, in recent years, some of the deadly diseases that we thought were the stuff of history books are back with a vengeance in many parts of the world — and not just in developing countries.

Why are preventable diseases making a comeback?

In the US, a recent outbreak of measles has been linked to a rise in unvaccinated children. Up to 40 percent of American parents are either delaying or skipping vaccinations, according to a study published by the medical journal Pediatrics in May last year. Parents subscribing to the anti-vaccination movement ignore the Center for Disease Control (CDC)’s calls for vaccination, thanks in part to a now-debunked study linking vaccines to autism.

Again a religionist tries to force a false history filled with his religious views on public schools.

Oklahoma Lawmaker Wants to Push Christian Revisionist History in Public Schools

https://friendlyatheist.patheos.com/2019/02/16/oklahoma-lawmaker-wants-to-push-christian-revisionist-history-in-public-schools/

Christian nationalists are always looking for ways to use our public schools to promote their warped, revisionist version of U.S. history. Myths like Christianity and the Bible playing a central role at the Constitutional Convention (nope, and it didn’t include a formal prayer either), like George Washingtonpraying in the snow at Valley Forge (he didn’t), or the Ten Commandments forming the basis of our laws (not even close).

We all know where this is going.

Bullard is seeking to use the machinery of the state to promote Christian nationalism and its bad history. He wants public school history classes in Oklahoma to be live versions of Hobby Lobby’s wildly misleading July 4 ads.

Instead, the founders chose to keep state and church separate. The “wall of separation” between state and church is an American original. The idea was floating around in the Enlightenment, but it was first implemented in the American Experiment. It’s right there in the first words of our Constitution: “We the people.” Those words are poetic, but also declare that power comes from people, not gods. That was revolutionary. America invented the separation of state and church, and we ought to be proud of that fact.

Portland Cops Accused Of Colluding With Extremists

Gibson’s events, occurring regularly in the Pacific Northwest since President Donald Trump’s election, have alarmed and enraged Portlanders—even prompting the mayor to propose new rules restricting protests. That’s because the rallies have attracted white supremacists and other extremists, and are often thinly veiled pretexts for Gibson’s group, the Vancouver-Wash-based Patriot Prayer, to wage violent street fights with masked antifascists.

Hit the link for much more. Gibson last appeared on JMG in July 2018 when riot police broke up his US Senate campaign rally.

KANSAS: Republican Bills Would Ban Same-Sex “Parody Marriage” And Define LGBTQ Rights As A Religion

Filed under: Asshole / Jerk, Bigotry, Fascism, Harm, Hate, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 08:50

Again!  Really!  Do we need to keep going through this.  When in history has it ever been the right thing to deny rights to groups of people?   Why is slavish devotion to myths from the iron age that are applied only to those groups they hate allowed to be enshrined in secular laws?  I am so tired of this crap.   Hugs

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/02/kansas-republican-bills-would-ban-same-sex-parody-marriage-and-define-lgbtq-rights-as-a-religion/

A group of state representatives in Kansas introduced legislation Wednesday that seeks to define same-sex marriage as “parody marriage,” stop the state from recognizing gay marriage and establish an “elevated marriage” option for straight couples who seek “higher standards of commitment.”

“Their marriage probably doesn’t affect me – their union or whatever you want to call it. But in my opinion, they’re trying to force their beliefs on society,” said Rep. Randy Garber, a Sabetha Republican and the bill’s lead sponsor.

Several paragraphs in the bill seek to describe differences between the civil rights movement and the gay rights movement. The bill says “there are no ex-blacks but there are thousands of ex-gays.”
