    So if that "act" passes, does it mean that I have enough free speech to be exempt from punishment when I say that all people who wish harm against LGBTx people should be put to death immediately and painfully?

    I don't think The Horrible GOP could do more to disenfranchise itself from reality and decent people.

    We must vote The Horrible GOP out. Vote. Vote. Vote.

    so exactly what faiths does this apply to, can you get a government job and then just never serve ANYONE without as much faith as you think they should have? (ie. sorry, poly-cotton blend, with leather shoes, more than one fabric)

    Well the mass majority of your fellow Texans support this extreme right wing garbage and they will keep on voting for narrow minded bible thumping screwballs because your beloved Texas is the lone star land of duck dynasty.

    Republicans Just Endorsed A Jim Crow Law For Gays

    "The Republican National Committee gave its backing to a law designed to treat gay Americans as second class citizens. After the Supreme Court ruled on Obergefell v. Hodges, which made same-sex marriage legal in the entire United States, the Committee recently passed a resolution urging Congress to pass the so-called First Amendment Defense Act (FADA)."

    This is what happens when you vote for Republicans -- the party of anti-gay bigotry.
    This is why we must vote out of office every Republican at every level.
    They are a cancer that is ruining our country.

    Outside of years of study on my own and a 10-year relationship with a Rosicrucian, I'm not all that familiar with the Christian faith but if memory serves, I believe that might be two thirds the trinity.

    But seriously, I can't even believe I'm on the same planet as all this Republican crap.

    Whenever I see a supposed-gay RJ Republican spouting their shit all I can do is picture this:

    Ya can't really muzzle'm, though at least on this end we wouldn't have to watch where we walk.
