Predatory Journalism

FF is right. Banning any activity that people desire doesn't stop it, it merely drives it underground and creates a criminal black market for those services and goods; and leaves the customers with zero legal options if things go from bad to worse.
Poor word choice; "should" should have been "could". And I agree, you could have private enterprise do those jobs; except if they can't make a profit at it, they won't do them. There are things that have some value that could be done with cheap enough labor from a service corps that are too expensive for commercial applications. (Cleaning up many superfund sites comes to mind - massive cost for commercial contracts, not so costly with cheap labor.) And the question arises of whether they should be making a profit off the general tax payers of the nation, or be working for pay for the specific demographic benefitting from their labor?
If the preachers publish their sermons on the web, then any subpeona for them becomes moot; unless the Houston Mayor and DA are attempting to impose a financial cost on the defendants in producing special copies for them; which of course would be unethical, immoral, and possibly illegal conduct by the Mayor and DA.
Actually, I'm kind of relieved that I'm not in Sheila Jackson Lee's sexual preference demographic. ;-)
Seems to me that Houston City Attorney David Feldman is both corrupt, and a total incompetent when it comes to Constitutional law. Religious speech AND personal political views are BOTH protected speech under the 1st Amendment. In keeping with good Texan historical precedent; the citizens of Houston ought to forcibly remove Feldman from office, tar and feather him, and ride him out of town on a rail.
The problem lies not with paying these workers while they are on administrative leave pending adjudication of their alleged crimes and poor performance. The problem is how long it takes for those investigations and trials to be performed. What Guy Benson fails to mention is that in many cased, the worker is found to be innocent of the accusations; and therefore fully entitled to all pay and benefits. Beware of committing a greater sin by un-justly punishing the innocent, rather than "rewarding" the guilty until it comes time for them to pay the piper.
I find these advertising scum and click-baiters to be offensive.

Criminalizing Innocent Christian Behavior

"Notice who the aggressors are here. Notice who is being intolerant." Also, notice who the targets are. They are ALWAYS clergy with a religious objection. There is nothing forcing the GBLTs to use a religious clergy person to perform the "marriage"; any public notary can do the same. This means that the GBLT is deliberately seeking out religious objectors with the intent on destroying their protections of their right to practice their religion under the 1st Amendment. Dave is soooo right about GBLTs seeking "to force their beliefs on other people to the point of compelling them to deny their own". It's a war, and Christians and other religious practitioners who believe the gay agenda is a sin should proudly practice their faiths, and refuse to cooperate with any court decision to the contrary.

Does Obama Care About People?

Mamacat2, you said everything that needed to be said. Thank you.
Seems to me the question is, are these two ministers licensed to perform civil marriages only? Or are they licensed to perform marriages only within their religion and to legally notarize those documents for filing purposes?

Get rid of every Democrat currently in office. We can work on the RINOs later.
