So, the only religion that schools are allowed to promote is YOUR religion.
So those nondiscrimination statutes trump the first amendment? That's not the way the constitution is supposed to work.
"She should be glad that the WWII generation isn't here and in their prime. They knew totalitarianism when they saw it." There were a few who did, but most considered it someone else's problem until after Pearl Harbor. Europe had been at war for 2+ years by then.

I confess - I couldn't handle another cliffhanger, so I broke down and watched the speech. (Link just before the start of the column.) I'm glad I did. It's very powerful.
The words are inspired, not the people. A better translation of "given by inspiration of God" is "God-breathed." (I don't usually prefer the NIV, but it is very helpful on 2 Timothy 3:16)
“You shall not commit adultery" Biblically, adultery is sex outside of marriage. (Marriage is also defined - "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.")
