I was doing something important, when I got one of those news posts that made me stop my important task (finishing off my bottle of wine.) and take no
tice. Those Right Wing idiots are now crying about the “Criminalization of Christianity” after a federal judge jailed Kentucky clerk Kim Davis for refusing to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.
If Kim can’t do the job she was hired to do, then she should quit. Only politicians give a shit about Kim and once they figure out that Kim’s jailing won’t make a difference, they’ll find another windmill to joust. Two pharmacists also refused to issue birth control and the morning after pill because of their religious beliefs. This is still a democracy and people are allowed their opinion despite differences in belief and behavior.
Employees serve at the behest of their employer, not the other way around. Those who feel that strongly about a particular issue should step down or quit their job. Perhaps, employers and politicians might do well to understand the groups they belittle have 9 million votes to not vote for them. Christianity is not the issue, it is the use of religion to block another’s rights, As a side bar, it should be noted that Ms. Wood has been married four times. Oops! “If you can’t stand the heat—get out of the kitchen.”
I have little knowledge of law, but it seems they might be able to take her to civil court. Like I said I have zip knowledge of how these work.
Now, if we could only get people to forget the GOP love child of Mary Ann Trump and an orangutan.
Now, now, don't be ragging on orangutans!
You're right. He must have been slipped a roofie.
You're right there, Pat, but it's not likely to happen. This is from a right-wing pollster who set up a focus group to find Trump's weak spots. It turned out he doesn't have any.
According to Frank Luntz—a long-time political pollster employed by the right wing—Donald Trump has become the political equivalent to an indestructible movie monster. No matter what is thrown at him, he just keeps driving forward on his path of destruction. In the eyes of Trump’s supporters, there is simply nothing that he can do that is disqualifyingly offensive.
. . . If this focus group is to be believed, anything less than Trump walking out onto the GOP’s 2nd debate stage in full Nazi uniform and reciting Muslim prayers, then trying to bludgeon Jeb Bush with copy of Da Kapital in his right hand and a fetus that he personally aborted in his left, is unlikely to alienate him to the base (even then, this focus group suggests that they might just see him as an anti-establishment maverick).

Bugger, needed three goats and a cow too!
