Impeachment is probably not terribly likely in KY. How about if instead they sentence her to keep this billboard in her front yard?

Best news I've heard in a while, Pat.  It'd be nice if this incident were a wake-up call for those who think they can bring their religion to work with them and shove it down the throats of those they work with or for, but with the Hobby Lobby decision as backdrop, I'm still not certain.

The way I've heard it to this point, to actually REMOVE her from her job, she needs to be impeached.  Now here's the $64 question: will that actually HAPPEN???

Breaking News! The Kentucky Kristian Klerk who won't follow the law has been found to be in contempt of Court and jailed. Actually, she got what she wanted. Which, IMHO, was attention paid to her. And the Konservative Kristian Klowns were all too eager to make her the poster child for their cause. What I do wonder, however, is this. When the dust settles, and it turns out she has to pay the other side's attorneys fees and costs, is the American Family Council, Tony Perkins, the Liberty Council, or any other right wing group going to step up to the plate and help her financially? Yeah. Didn't think so.

Actually both the LGBT community and the atheist community owe Fischer and his ilk a great debt of thanks for making crystal clear to all those millennials listening and watching out there that literalist religion truly is an insane source of bigotry and hatred just as it appears to the even slightly discerning eye.

"Like the Holocaust," eh?  Ummm, Bryan?  Who's being killed?!?

From JT Eberhard's Patheos column:


Bryan Fischer: Signing same-sex marriage licenses is like the Holocaust

Bryan Fischer, who runs a radio show for the American Family Association, has compared allowing families to legally form (which you’d think a “family” organization would be all about) to the mass murder of an entire class of people based solely on their inherent properties (like race or sexual orientation).

Yes, Kim Davis isn’t just denying a service to gay couples to which they’re legally entitled because she, herself, feels entitled to do so. No, no – she’s taking a bold stand against the Nazis, kind of like a moo moo-wearing Indiana Jones. Because declaring your life-long love for a person is kind of like murdering millions, right?


If you can’t tell the difference between genocide and love then you lose the right to tell anybody that your religion is good for the world. Hell, just look at what it’s done to you.

So it's official (and officious!): the Republican Party wants to be BIGOTED as a matter of public policy ... and yeah, that's the way I'd put it.  That shouldn't be sugar-coated or soft-pedaled in any fashion.  Indeed, that's the mildest way I'd put it.

According to ThinkProgress,

Republican National Committee Endorses Anti-Gay Discrimination

Not exactly a big surprise.

The RNC wants Congress to approve the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA). This bill, which the ACLU has called “a Pandora’s Box of taxpayer-funded discrimination against same-sex couples and their children,” would prevent the federal government from acting against businesses and non-profits that discriminate against same-sex married couples. This would mean that government workers could refuse to perform their duties, and businesses and organizations — including those that operate with support of taxpayer money — would be free to discriminate.

And while I'm at it, here's the Daily Kos story that sourced from.

I would think that disqualification for a given situation under the stipulated circumstances would NOT look especially good on a justice's resume.  Exactly what the review process for Ohio justices is (presuming there is any), I don't know, but flense scar tissue enough times and the patient won't like it much!
