Why is a 'religious exemption' even needed in the first place? "I want to educate my children at home. Their education is my responsibility, and I have the right to carry out that responsibility in the way that seems best to me, in the interest of each child. I don't 'own' them, but neither does the state. I defy any state employee who claims that they care more for the wellbeing of my children than I do!" That should be enough. Why is anything more necessary?
Conchfritters: Yes, heterosexuals living together without being married is a sin too. When fornicators start trying to impose their will on others and get others to not just accept but affirm their actions, then it will be other people's business to oppose such actions too. People act as though marriage is about two people who love each other. Marriage is more about providing for the children who result from that relationship, in a legally binding manner that does not require public assistance. And yes, it's also to protect the interests of the wife, who typically stays home and raises the children without competing to further her career. Men think it's ok to exploit the 'wife of their youth', and then find a younger woman later when his first wife has no job skills or prospects for remarriage (Malachi 2:13-16). People talk about social justice and wanting 'fairness' toward homosexuals through honoring homosexual marriage (an oxymoron), but in the process they are tearing down the legal and social provisions that are there to protect the most vulnerable in our society, children and wives.
PCitro: As I understand it, the original mission of the National Guard was to protect certain important locations rather than to engage the people on the streets, in order to free up police to actively engage the crowds. Unlike the regular army, National Guardsmen have a stateside mission and are taught crowd control tactics, so they could be used to clear the streets too. At some point, more boots on the ground generally means less violence on the streets. Individual shooters would generally be dealt with separately on their own. The entire Ferguson riot situation was instigated by people like Al Sharpton and Eric Holder, with encouragement from Barak Obama. I just have to wonder, to what purpose? Reenforcing the 'Black vote' is one thing. Obama never has liked the 2 term limit on the Presidency. I've been speculating on what type of national crisis he would exploit in order for Obama to declare martial law, and postpone the 2016 election indefinitely. Federalizing various National Guard units might be part of that. I just hope there are enough military who understand that their oath of loyalty is to the Constitution, and not to the President himself personally.

The Republicans are not the only ones who have sworn an oath of office, to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States. The Democrats in Congress may be in the same political party as Barak Obama, but he is violating the Constitution, and he is usurping powers that are designated to the Congress. That makes two reasons why even Democrats should be open to opposing Obama on his immigration edict. The Democrats have also been getting a drubbing because of following Obama's leadership. Each citizen needs to contact their elected national representatives (House and Senate), whether Republican or Democrat, and let them know that the nation is watching what they do. No really folks. It's all fine and dandy to post on comment pages, possibly good in fact. But these concerns need to be sent to our elected representatives. Those who are awake need to direct the ire toward those in office who have allowed things to get out of hand.
