Cake Politics: Ending the Rule of Law

That narrow Supreme Court decision may not stay narrow for long

religion is now a get out of jail free card

free to refuse service, deny rights, rape and murder

and nothing remains narrow in law

unintended consequences and more court challenges

religion is why we don’t have nice things

A pox on conservatives and american conservatism. The Christofascists will not be happy until we are all back in the closet or dead. It is going to take more than just voting if we are to survive.

 

it is time to declare religion to be the mental illness that it is by the medical profession

and the courts have to correct this error in law that just ended the rule of law, eh?

If that isn’t fucked up, I don’t know what is. That’s why I’ve never trusted religion in general, Christianity in particular. It’s a get out of jail free card, a license to discriminate, you name it. It’s okay to commit the same transgressions they claim to say is a sin against God. Talk about a double-standard.

 

It also then creates the challenge of any religion sincerely held,

and the entire point of law is the social contract

so it means every single religion, including those held by individuals

is a get out of law and social consequences?

nice system of morality, eh?

the sincerity of convictions is mere emotionalism
the content of the belief matters,
religion is a poor competitor in the marketplace of ideas

it’s why it demands exceptionalism

religion may not be questioned
Lest We Forget

 

Christianity is NOT a license to do any of those things. Don’t be a liar as they are. The fundamentalists call their religion Christianity but anything they do that is against what Jesus Christ taught is not Christian. The Old Testament is not Christian. It’s Judaism and they are not one and the same. Because of what the fundamentalists say and do and because a lot of “non-believers” don’t really know what Christ really said and did, which is contained in the four Gospels, there is a lot of misunderstanding as to what Christianity really is and isn’t, just as there is a lot of misunderstanding by heterosexuals about us gay people. I know what I”m talking about because I am both a Jesus person (a red letter Christian) and a gay woman. I came out to a heterosexual man a couple days ago that seemed to think that all gay couples role-play, based on one gay man that he knows who’s in a relationship like that.

 

“The fundamentalists call their religion Christianity but anything they do that is against what Jesus Christ taught is not Christian.”

No True Scotsman Fallacy, and perhaps you should review the actual history of the religion’s impact, from the Crusades to the current era. Post 9/11 Crusaded 2.0 America Embassy In Jerusalem Edition with Nuclear Weapons; and America is now a theocracy, with a former Reality TV Host in charge.

“religious Freedom” combined with women forcing men to rape them when sex is a no, while gay men forcing men to murder when sex is a yes, and murdering trans when no means yes.”

religion is the force being hate crimes, and fails to teach it;’s members to work or play well with others.

Cutting a Cake and Eating It

Having Cake and Eating it too

 

I’ve never understood that way of thinking.

 

it is not thinking, it’s feelings

wishful thinking and delusional

and why religion is mental illness

 

I agree. All the more reason I don’t belong to any organized religion. I decided early on that I wasn’t going to rely on the Bible to determine what my moral values should be.

 

I realized early the inconsistency and lack of history in Christianity, the first religion I was exposed to.

I went by choice to church, not force, until I found out about the tv show “Kids Are People Too”

which had a better message than church

and personhood considerations under the law

the idea that one’s dignity depends on others conferring it is odd indeed.

I agree. I’ll have to check out the video. I didn’t go to church until I was in high school. I went to a Unitarian Universalist church in Kirkland, where I grew up.

 

it was mostly a 1970s talk show aimed at kids with young celebs on it.

that said, you might be more interested in more adult fare:from 2007, a university paper:
