With Apple, Microsoft, Facebook, and Google, and many other tech companies all supporting gay rights, I call for all those supporting the Godly war against the gay agenda to boycott computers and the Internet. Alan Turing, one of the main pioneers of computers, was gay himself! This is about more than a silly cookie. Support God and the sanctity of marriage! Boycott the Internet NOW!
Mitt Romney has launched a petition accusing the Obama administration of “using Obamacare to impose a secular vision on Americans who believe that they should not have their religious freedom taken away.” The move is the latest in a concerted campaign effort to rally the conservative base around a supposed “war against religion” and misrepresent oroutright lie about a new regulation requiring employers and insurers to offer contraception coverage.
“We must have a president who is willing to protect America’s first right, a right to worship God, according to the dictates of our own conscience,” Romney told an audience of nearly 3,000 people in Colorado. “We’ll either have a government that protects religious diversity and freedom, or we’ll have a government that tells us what kind of conscience they think we ought to have.” But Romney’s new-found outrage is a stark contrast from his record as Massachusetts governor, when he tacitly endorsed a very similar coverage mandate and greatly expanded government-funded contraceptive services.
In 2002 — the very same year Romney campaigned for governor of Massachusetts — the state enacted a “contraceptive equity” law that required insurers that provide outpatient benefits to cover hormone replacement therapy and all FDA-approved contraceptive methods. Similar to the Obama regulation, the law exempted “an employer that is a church or qualified church-controlled organization” from the requirement and the legislature soundly defeated an amendment that “would have allowed affiliated institutions such as hospitals, universities, and nursing homes to deny their employees coverage.” The defeated amendment closely mirrors the expanded conscience protections religious groups are now clamoring for.
Newt Gingrich’s big ideas? - Putting individuals who brought more than two ounces of marijuana into the United States to death.
The Washington Post - Wonkblog - On Saturday’s edition of “Up With Chris Hayes,” Gary Johnson brought up an old Newt Gingrich idea I hadn’t heard before: Putting individuals who brought more than two ounces of marijuana into the United States to death. That sounded extreme, even for Gingrich. So I looked it up. And sure enough, there it is: “The Drug Importer Death Penalty Act of 1996.” What makes the bill even more amazing is that Gingrich himself is a confessed pot smoker. When he was young, he said, experimenting with drugs “was a sign we were alive and in graduate school in that era.”
During the South Carolina GOP debate, the audience booed Ron Paul when he talked about the golden rule regarding international relations.
I’m no fan of Ron Paul, but the hypocrisy of the GOP supporters in the crowd amazes me, it shouldn’t by this point but it does.
These are the same people who demonize everyone who isn’t Christian and act so morally smug and superior, yet they seem to hate everything Christ actually stood for.
Here’s some video of that particular part of the debate.
Nonetheless, despite onerous polling place photo ID requirements now passed into law in about a dozen states where the GOP controls both the legislative and executive branches, voters will be able to cast their ballot in next Tuesday’s “First-in-the-Nation” Republican Iowa caucuses without bothering to show a photo ID — even though the Republican Party itself sets their own rules for voting there."
We didn’t need any more proof that the GOP’s voter ID efforts were aimed at suppressing the votes of Democratic constituencies, but it’s always nice to have.
