Trump Administration Creates New Religious Freedom Gestapo



  • Religious Freedom Gestapo: The Trump administration has created a new office of religious freedom to protect conservative Christian bigots.
  • Earlier today the Trump administration announced a new unit of the federal government: the conscience and religious freedom division of the office for civil rights at the Department of Health and Human Services.
  • According to reports, the new division within the Department of Health and Human Services will be devoted to “conscience and religious freedom.”
  • Translation: the new Religious Freedom Gestapo will protect conservative Christians in the medical profession who refuse to do their job for religious reasons. The new office will protect those who choose to discriminate against women, LGBT people, and any others who offend their religious sensibilities.

My vote goes to Jotham. My life has the purpose(s) I give it.

Thomas, we who wrote computer code checked what our code produced. We knew GIGO also meant garbage in gospel out.

Joan, way back before my now-70-plus kid sister married, she met a boy who lacked thermoception. He told her he might freeze and not know it.
