And didn’t close to half of them just walk out while Schiff was speaking, against the set rules?

What happens if jury members in a trial just up and walk out in the middle of the prosecutor presenting his case? Don’t they get arrested?

We must cleanse the Justice Dept, our government and our souls. We can’t pretend we’re the same as we were before this corrupt man took over.

Watch This Christian Lady Swear Up a Storm While Preaching at Walmart Customers

Watch This Christian Lady Swear Up a Storm While Preaching at Walmart Customers

***Update***: A Reddit user says this occurred in a Meijer grocery store, not a Walmart. No confirmation yet.

Imagine you go to Walmart, do your shopping, and now you’re ready to pay for everything and leave.

That’s when the customer behind you begins to proselytize. She wants you to know all about Jesus. Awkward. Annoying. You want it to end. You politely tell her you’re not interested.

Then she gets mad. And she yells at you. And it turns out she swears like a goddamn pirate. (Sample line: “Shut your f**kin’ mouth, b*tch. If you don’t have Jesus Christ in your heart, I feel f**kin’ sorry for you.”)

That’s when you break out your phone to get it all on tape.

There is a video at the link.  It is not safe for work.  Hugs

GOP Lawmaker’s Bill Would Allow Christian Company to Sell Religious Dog Tags

Filed under: Criminal, Fascism, News, Political, Questions, Religion — Scottie @ 03:49

Republican lawmakers again trying to enshrine in secular laws a Christian right and force the military to lose control of their own insignias.  There is no way they would do this for any other religion.   This is a clear signal is that Christianity is endorsed by the US government as the countries religion.   Hugs

GOP Lawmaker’s Bill Would Allow Christian Company to Sell Religious Dog Tags

The company, Shields of Strength, didn’t seem to care that using the official logos of the military illegally suggested an endorsement of religion that the military wasn’t making. (The Department of Defense’s own rules prohibit the logos from appearing on any items that promote certain ideologies or religious beliefs.)

All of that happened because the Military Religious Freedom Foundation‘s founder Mikey Weinstein sent letters to all of the military branches urging them to put a stop to what the Christian company was doing. It worked. The U.S. Marine Corps Trademark Licensing Office was able to get the store to take down the Marine Corps and Navy dog tags. The Army followed suit later. (The Air Force dog tags are still available for purchase.)

Now a Republican lawmaker is trying to change the rules in order to benefit Christians.

Rep. Gregory Steube of Florida has introduced a bill, HB 5657, that would allow any trademarks owned by the Department of Defense to be “combined with religious insignia on commercial identification tags (commonly known as “dog tags”) and to be sold by lawful trademark licensees.”

In short, it’s a bill that would allow this company to keep suggesting — wrongly — that we have a Christian military.

But this is what Republicans do. They carve out opportunities for Christians to get away with damn near anything no matter how much it hurts the country. Passing this bill would send a clear message that our military is okay being used as a pawn in a faith-based culture war. There’s a reason the government is supposed to be secular. It provides religious freedom for everyone. Allowing religious groups to co-opt the military in order to make some cash is a short-term gain that would create long-term damage.

It’s irresponsible. It’s also what we’ve come to expect of conservative Christians.

Trump Brags About Concealing Impeachment Evidence: ‘We Have All the Material, They Don’t’

Trump Brags About Concealing Impeachment Evidence: ‘We Have All the Material, They Don’t’

President Trump said he’s happy with the way the impeachment trial is going thus far because his administration has not released “materials” that would hurt his cause.

“When we released that conversation all hell broke out with the Democrats,” Trump said. “Because they said, ‘Wait a minute, this is much different than [what Adam Schiff] told us.’ ”

The president continued, “So, we’re doing very well. I got to watch [the impeachment trial] enough. I thought our team did a very good job. But honestly, we have all the material. They don’t have the material.”

The Trump administration has exerted executive privilege while ignoring subpoenas for documents and have directed individuals not to respond to subpoena requests since the beginning of the impeachment process. For comparison, the Clinton administration turned over more than 90,000 pages of documents and material during its impeachment.

Usually, the Trump administration either refuses to explain their stonewalling or excuses their lack of cooperation away by bashing the investigation, calling it illegitimate or a witch hunt. But here, rather astonishingly, Trump seems to be flatly admitting to withholding evidence.

 

White House posts video of bishop saying ‘demonic spirit’ is behind homosexuality during sermon attended by Mike Pence

Not only are these people willing to lie but they are also unwilling to learn.   They want people like me dead or imprisoned.    They want to make me a crime in itself to further their church doctrines.    This is the government of the country I am a citizen of.    Hugs

‘You never see two male animals coming together,’ preacher incorrectly tells congregation

“It is a demonic spirit that causes a woman to want to live with another woman,” he said. “It is a demonic spirit that causes a man to be attracted to another man.”

The preacher, who has been named as the bishop Jerry Wayne Taylor, claimed the “devil” is trying to “destroy the foundation of marriage” and “cut off the reproduction process”.

“Two men can’t have a baby. Two women can’t have a baby,” he told the congregation at the Holy City Church of God in Christ.

Research has found that over 1,500 species engage in homosexual behaviour, and two lions were pictured having gay sex in Kenya several years ago.

“We’ve got to expose what the devil is doing,” the bishop added after his incorrect comment about the animal kingdom. “I might get beat up out in the wild but that’s alright.”

The religious vice-president, whose wife teaches at a Christian school banning gay and transgender staff and students, has voted against policies supporting LGBT+ and abortion rights in the past.

Donald Trump, the US president, reportedly once joked Mr Pence  “wanted to hang all gay people”.

‘Can You Imagine a Group of Black Men Walking Around With Masks and Guns?’: Gun Rally Sparks Questions of Racism and Privilege

‘Can You Imagine a Group of Black Men Walking Around With Masks and Guns?’: Gun Rally Sparks Questions of Racism and Privilege

It’s Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, and for several hours now countless mostly white, mostly male pro-gun, anti-gun control activists have been marching throughout the streets of Richmond, Virginia, claiming to merely be exercising their Second Amendment rights. Many appear to be dressed in military garb, including camouflage, masks, and donning various types of firearms over their shoulders or at their side.

Many online noted the reception from pro-gun advocates might be far different if the activists were Black instead of white, given the nation’s history – and that of Virginia.

One social media user asked, “Can you imagine a group of black men walking around with masks and guns?”

The article has a bunch of tweets and a few videos of the white mob with guns and the crowds.
