Supreme Court To Potentially Rule on Religious Neutrality

January 18th, 2016 Viewed 884 times

The church involved in the case was denied access to a state program in Missouri that provides playground surface rubber made from old tires.  The refusal was based on a state constitutional provision barring any public funds going to religious groups.   The new case has the potential for a major interpretation of what neutrality involving religion means for public benefits.

Quoted from The Supreme Court took a case about shredded tire playground mulch and religion.

When is a Boy Not a Boy?

The Locker Room

The Locker Room (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

It’s obviously got nothing to do with plumbing or chromosomes:

“All students deserve the opportunity to participate equally in school programs and activities — this is a basic civil right,” Catherine Lhamon, the Education Department’s assistant secretary for civil rights, said in a statement. “Unfortunately, Township High School District 211 is not following the law because the district continues to deny a female student the right to use the girls’ locker room.”

“Federal education authorities found on Monday that an Illinois school district had violated anti-discrimination laws…”

What got left out of here, of course, is that the “female” is a boy that identifies as female.

Socialism and the Democratic Party

There are some interesting quotes floating around the Internet I thought I would share:

A Page From History

Norman Mattoon Thomas (November 20, 1884 to December 19, 1968) was a leading American socialist, pacifist, and six-time presidential candidate for the Socialist Party of America.

The Socialist Party candidate for President of the U.S., Norman Thomas, said this in a 1944 speech: “The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of “liberalism,” they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.! ” He went on to say: “I no longer need to run as a Presidential Candidate for the Socialist Party. The Democrat Party has adopted our platform.”

“The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.”

~~Margaret Thatcher~~

The democracy will cease to exist when you take away from those who are willing to work and give to those who are not.

– Thomas Jefferson

Friend, you cannot legislate the poor into freedom by legislating the wealthy out of freedom. And what one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. The government can’t give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody. And when half of the people get the idea they don’t have to work because the other half’s going to take care of them, and when the other half get the idea it does no good to work because somebody’s going to get what I work for. That, dear friend, is about the end of any nation.

Oh no!  What could they have done to get arrested!

That’s right, Tinker Bell and Minnie Mouse have been arrested because of dispute over entitlements.  Many dressed up as Disney characters to try to draw attention to Disney’s change in policy.

I’m sure this caused a lot of heads to turn and draw attention to their cause.

Check out the article for all the details!
