Onward Christian Soldiers

Republicans are in a real bind these days. They can’t do a thing to upset their constituency, unless your name is Donald Trump. But anyway, they can’t lose the Christian bible-humping right where a subset exists that is homophobic, and as we have seen from Target Lady, transphobic as well. It’s crucial that Republicans keep this group in their tent.

However, behind closed doors, even they get tired of overweening Christian displays:

Allen’s comments upset some members, who walked out of the Republican policy meeting in protest.

“It was f—ing ridiculous,” one Republican member in the room told The Hill.

“A good number of members were furious,” a Republican told Politico about Allen’s remarks. “There was some Scripture that was read and the like.”.

That’s my senator. I am sorry. My state gave you Jody Hice and this asshole.

Smarter minds than mine will eventually tease out why conservatives, the wing of personal liberty, consistently find themselves legislating some people’s morality against others. Lord only knows what their issue is. The reasoning is barely perceptible. They can’t all be closet homos, can they? The Bible is full of things people don’t believe are relevant any more, even Christians-why pick on LGBT folk?

If you are scared of non-traditional sex, and I believe that is the case, don’t engage in it and don’t look at it. Oh, you may have to see a float at a parade, but I’m sure the Lord can provide a special dispensation of forgiveness for viewing such perversity. And don’t go to college either, where you might find everything you know is wrong.

Shell Game

What’s so odious about this North Carolina law everyone is talking about? As I write this, NC is suing the federal government for overreach after the Justice Department threatened to have federal education funding ixnayed for the state if they did not rescind the bill.

The Justice Department has sued back.

This has never been a “who goes to the bathroom” issue. That’s the magical squirrel everyone has their eye on. Every goddamned idiot on the right is wigging over transgender rights to use the bathroom of their gender ID. It’s such a small part of what this bill does; what it really does is prohibit the localities of North Carolina from passing laws protecting the rights of LGBT citizens because you guessed it, state’s rights. In the bill, it says that no one can or will be compelled to respect the rights of that community.

Loretta Lynch is right: we’re looking at modern day Jim Crow style laws aimed to relegate certain individuals to secondary, even tertiary status.All of these goober states can’t handle teh gay. Fuck ’em. They will lose this fight.

I don’t want to toot my own horn, but Justice thinks these bills contravene protection offerered by the Civil Rights Act. Finally, someone gets it.
