Self-identified "Bible Christian" bad for business in Moline Illinois....

If she's really a Bible Christian™ I suppose her business does not have receptions on the Sabbath (a "Big 10" commandment), that they make sure the brides are virgins, that they don't serve shrimp or lobster at their receptions, that no women on their period attend..... or is she just a pick-a-choose bible bigot?

The Young Turk on GOProud.  Of all the names GOProud could have taken....  No pride at all, except in their money and support of the bigoted Republican regime.   What will they have next - MaggieProud, for NOMtastic homos?

 

 I forget, what is the difference between GOProud and Log Cabin Rebublicans?

Judge says harassment and bullying not a human rights violation.


Court: Human Rights Law Doesn't Cover Public School Students

New York's highest court ruled that the state's Human Rights Law does not protect students against harassment and discrimination in public schools.

As a result of today's ruling by the state Court of Appeals, these students are now denied access to the law's comprehensive protections.

@Joan   I totally agree with Sentient.  For these people, the word of god supersedes any scientific facts.  Thankfully their numbers are dwindling, just not fast enough for us.  Basically we're in a waiting game as they slowly catch up to the modern era.  This will take a few more generations.  This issue was discussed in a conversation recently between Daniel Dennet and Richard Dawkins that Hemant Mehta posted over on his blog, The Friendly Atheist.

Joan, I do not think the religious right will tone down their rhetoric or reduce the ferocity of their culture war.  Not in the slightest.  Lately they seem to be escalating their bellicosity.  It's not about nature, or science, all of which they revile anyway.  They do not accept evolution, they claim the earth is 6,000 years old despite all evidence, and they claim the bible as Law and the Word of God.  With a lot of picking and choosing, of course.  The religious right will not change directions.  For them, it's more a type of "tribalism" - "Us" vs. "them" which is also a major root of sexism and racism.  Where I think the findings are useful is for those who are more enlightened, to understand more about human nature, & celebrate our human diversity.  The scientific community has not always been tolerant of LGBT people either.  Only in the past generation has the existence of LGBT people been acknowledged as part of nature.  LGBT people were also ostracized in academia, at least in the past.   I think that scientific change has been profound, and will help attitudes of people who are not listening to religious demagogues and professional homophobes.  I hope.

Sentient, do you think the recent findings of genetics will make any difference in the temper and tone of the religious right on matters of homosexuality.

VT- thanks!  Bring your camera!  Post pics!  Sounds awesome.  Actually, a crowd of a million people would freak me out, but go for it!
