    Fucking relentless, evil human beings, they just cant let go! icon_twisted.gif

    The “First Amendment Defense Act” is backed by anti-LGBT hate groups including the National Organization for Marriage, which is asking presidential candidates to endorse the legislation as part of its anti-gay pledge.

    The legislation would prohibit any adverse action by the federal government against an individual or organization for discriminatory actions against legally married same-sex couples as long as they claim they are acting in accordance with their religious beliefs. “Adverse action” is broadly defined to include the denial or revocation of a federal tax status or deduction; denial of a federal grant, contract, loan, benefit or employment; or any other act of discrimination. The bill provides individuals and organizations the right to sue the federal government for monetary damages in federal court.

    Actually, Senator Mike Lee and Rep. Raul Labrador introduced their bill over a week ago, which didn’t get too much attention at the time. After today’s Supreme Court ruling on Obergefell, expect it to get a lot more attention, especially from GOP presidential hopefuls. The First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) would bar the federal government from imposing penalties on individuals, businesses, groups, and especially religious organizations for refusing to participate in same-sex weddings

    So, it would be fun to define leviticus 20:13 as an active threat and act of terrorism for all those carrying, supplying, or paying to provide, such terrorist recruitment material. Because, that is what it is. There can be no defence.

    What they all know, have known for centuries, worked very hard to keep from everyone but are all afraid people will finally find out the truth?

    From the people who made this, religion is all based on lies, then twisted interpretations used as a means of control, yes, you can call it a form of mind control.

    To me, its just so obvious, they can no longer corral the momentous lies, probably thanks to the internet and more people being self educated. This has nothing to do with atheism either. icon_idea.gif


    Freedom of religion in the United States
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freedom_of_religion_in_the_United_States


    Signed on November 4, 1796, the Treaty of Tripoli was a document that included the following statement:

    As the Government of the United States of America is not, in any sense, founded on the Christian religion; as it has in itself no character of enmity against the laws, religion, or tranquility, of Mussulmen [Muslims]; and as the said States never entered into any war or act of hostility against any Mahometan [Mohammedan] nation, it is declared by the parties that no pretext arising from religious opinions shall ever produce an interruption of the harmony existing between the two countries.


    State constitutions

    Under the doctrine of Incorporation, the first amendment has been made applicable to the states. Therefore the states must guarantee the freedom of religion in the same way the federal government must.

    Many states have freedom of religion established in their constitution, though the exact legal consequences of this right vary for historical and cultural reasons. Most states interpret "freedom of religion" as including the freedom of long-established religious communities to remain intact and not be destroyed. By extension, democracies interpret "freedom of religion" as the right of each individual to freely choose to convert from one religion to another, mix religions, or abandon religion altogether.

    Don't let it still our thunder. There will always be ugly and hate in the world. Hell...you don't have to look to far from this site (no shade, just tea). But you stand firm in what you know and remember this,

    "Like an unchecked cancer, hate corrodes the personality and eats away its vital unity. Hate destroys a man's sense of values and his objectivity. It causes him to describe the beautiful as ugly and the ugly as beautiful, and to confuse the true with the false and the false with the true." - MLK, Jr.

    Go ahead, and marry if your heart desires. You CAN.icon_smile.gif (and why is there no confetti emoji or glitter or rainbows? and they call this a gay oriented site. bishbye)

    As I've said before, I'd rather Texas resume its status as a Republic, before it became a US State. Then let Mexico reclaim it. Which a Texas Republic without US Federal troops couldn't oppose. Make Spanish the official language. Just the lesson arrogant Texans need.

    Louisiana, Texas governors vow to fight Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage while others pledge to comply
    http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/governors-vow-disobey-scotus-ruling-gay-marriage-article-1.2272503

    Texas Gov. Greg Abbott

    Despite the Supreme Court’s rulings, Texans’ fundamental right to religious liberty remains protected. No Texan is required by the Supreme Court’s decision to act contrary to his or her religious beliefs regarding marriage.

    As I have done in the past, I will continue to defend the religious liberties of all Texans—including those whose conscience dictates that marriage is only the union of one man and one woman. Later today, I will be issuing a directive to state agencies instructing them to prioritize the protection of Texans’ religious liberties.”

    Republicans carry on with their hate campaign against gay Americans.
    It's the same sad story.
    This is why every last one of them must be voted out of office.
    I'm so tired of our country being ruined by bitter old bigots.

    Amen.
    Booting them all out of power is the only thing we can do that will truly force the Repub party to change their lousy failed policies and drop their divisive hate-based agenda.

    It might be fun to watch a federal/Texas showdown...kind of George Wallace style, like there was in the 1960's integration orders of educational institutions....where federal troops were positioned and The Alabama Governor was about to be arrested....
    Sadly, I don't see Obama being quite as charismatic or forceful a President as Johnson.
    Still....the irony should not be ignored that back then it was a Democrat in the WH, and a Democrat as Governor, both white , males, in a pissing match over allowing integration to happen.....This time it would be a Black, Democrat President and a (what else?) White, Republican Governor, both males, and straight, setting up to have a pissing match over allowing gays to have access to an institution of rights, benefits and privileges of marriage....The irony....history repeats itself because bigots don't know when to drop it!

    And they still think they will become US president and change everything back like it was in 1950, they have absolutely no progression views at all, they have gotten way to far to the right, people think they are too cookoo to run and keep any office, they cling to imaginary, old mind control methods, people have awaken.

    They just need to drop their hang ups on social issues, period, concentrate on fiscal matters. Todays conservatives are like trying to run Windows 10 software on a computer built in 1995. If you are tech savvy, you know what I mean, you just cant turn off progress icon_rolleyes.gif



    NO, WE ARE NOT GOING BACK TO 1950!

    Marriage is an act of religion endorsed by governments. It is not the other way around.
    By extension of the SCOTUS ruling, does the constitution also protect polygamists and multiple partner marriages also? Is their love inferior to heterosexual, bisexual, or homosexual love?
    Just asking.

    You haven't been to a (christian, e.g.) wedding in a while. I know of no "christian" sacrament called "marriage" (and here is the confusion at its root, even though the catholic church has tried to sidestep this problem). "We are here to join these two people in holy...MATRIMONY....", not marriage.

    But wait a minute! Why isn't it holy....PATRIMONY? Ahhhh, because under Roman law the wealth and estate passes through the....MOTHER (as Jewish blood).

    "Matrimony" was never about "love"; it's about the transference of property and wealth. And....what will you do if there is no "Mater" (no issue from the "marriage" = no mother, right?). So does the "matrimony" still exist, if there is no "mater"?

    So "my" answer to you is "No", the love of polygamists and multiple partner "marriages" is not "inferior" to the heterosexual, bisexual, or homosexual love.

    It's nothing more than political posturing.

    So far as the Bible is concerned, they have little understanding of it. There are things in the OT that civilized people would completely reject, including even those unthinking people who assert that the entire Bible expresses the Will of God. Parts of the Bible are nothing more than a reflection of ancient Hebrew culture that should be considered to be nothing more than background information rather than having anything to do with the Will of God. Other parts of the OT are nothing more than ancient Hebrew history and we know that when people write their history they distort it to rationalize the horrible and ghastly things they have done. That also should be considered to be background information rather than the Will of God.

    One wonders just how carefully some people have read the Bible.

    That Ron Reagan vid "not afraid to burn in hell" is very funny. How stupid of CBS to refuse airing it.
