Re: Religious Liberty question

The SCOTUS just ruled; give it time.

They ruled in 1967 making interracial marriage legal. 48 years is plenty of time.

Re: Religious Liberty question

Of course, it won't stop them from bankrupting churches and individuals with civil suits and legal fees using the court actions as a proxy for their anti-religious jihad.

Re: Religious Liberty question

I think this is the blind spot for progressives. Forcing a pastor to provide a religious ceremony that violates the religious tenants of that pastor is itself a religious hate crime. You can argue that Unitarians or whatever are fine with it, but [more]

Re: Here, have some more mercury for breakfast

Let's say that a limit of 35 mph would save 20,000 people per year. Would you advocate for such a limit?

Re: Doctor gets 5 yrs prison...

How do you figure this? If two cyclists are riding side by side and a car needs to pass they need to go several feet into the next lane to pass. If it is one cyclist then the car needs to get really close to the line, but generally not cross it. [more]
