In Defense Of Religious Liberty

If you do not see institutionalized discrimination in the laws and in the way our society treats gays, all I can do is hope you get a better pair of eyes. The issues and outcomes are identical. At its core in both cases, you deny people the indisputable right to be who they are, deny their basic humanity by telling them they do not have the right to exist simply because you do not lke one way in particular that they demonstrate their common humanity .. the method by which they engage in sex. The rest of the arguments are just a rehashing of old methods: the lies and the stereotyping. There is not room allowed here to truly diffuse all the wrong assumptions of the ages. Which is quite annoying .. but that is the point, huh??

Why You and I Would Be Arrested in Iran

Duh .. Iran is an openly Muslim country. Meaning that any other religion in that country is not going to be welcome. Why is this such a mystery. It certainly isn't as if Iran is hiding its policies. Should anyone be persecuted for their religious beliefs?? Not usually. Some need to be curbed to live within the laws of the country in which is their domain, including the U. S. But no one should be persecuted .. period. But I don't undersand the gist of this article. It is simply stating something everyone is aware of.

BTW .. it is Lyndon Baines Johnson. And the amendment should never have been made law. It is onerous and unsubstantiated and unnecessary. If we taxed churches as profit centers, which most are and some completely are, we might not have any deficit problems. Wouldn't that be nice!!

Not a pretty combination!! Religion is not pretty in and of itself but add politics to the mix and it becomes lethal instantly. Especially in tiny minds.

Sounds like most churches I am familiar with .. they had rather sacrifice their children than have anyone vaguely limit their precious right to kill other people. How Christian of them!!
What a bunch of bunk! This is one of the most ridiculous arguments I have read in a long time. The basis is silly .. that we need to reduce spending .. and that it needs to be reduced by a certain percentage of GDP. If we were to sponsor a stimulus package to get people back to work, the deficit would take care of itself. Spending is down 28% from the last administration and continuing to go down. But cuts in the future need to be smart .. not arbitrary as are the ones Ryan is suggesting. Not to mention the only ones who will pay the price are the poor. And children and veterans. We need new revenue through cutting all .. and I do mean ALL .. the tax loopholes that only benefit the uber wealthy and even the moderately wealthy. Out of room.
Really?? I would be willing to bet that any of those has beens could get a press conference well attended faster than you and your staff working double time.
It is nice to see that you finally admit to being just another Joseph McCarthy. It fits!!!
