They hear code words and dog whistles.

A new report by the United States Commission on Civil Rights supports the majority on the federal commission, who say that efforts to protect religious liberty and freedom are really a way for individuals and entities to discriminate against people who don’t share their beliefs.

“The phrases ‘religious liberty’ and ‘religious freedom’ will stand for nothing except hypocrisy so long as they remain code words for discrimination, intolerance, racism, sexism, homophobia, Islamophobia, Christian supremacy or any form of intolerance,” Martin Castro, chairman of the commission, said in a statement included in the 296-page report.

So liberals are now including Christians in that "basket of deplorables" Hillary preaches to her supporters?

Yeah, you guys are all about freedom of religion, as long as the religion is christianity.

The Civil Rights Commission wants all religions to be included.

Also, they don't want any religion controlling the running of the country or interfering with anyone's Constitutional/legal rights.

Too much of a concept for some of you.

Frankly, it's near time Christians stood up and said "fuck you". These progressive assholes have no Constitutional standing.

Ya fought for it once, remember?

Please point out to me in the Gospels where Jesus said anything about homosexuality at all? The problem with you "Christians" is that you use Jesus to rationalize a lot of deplorable things that Jesus never talked about.

And ignore the things he did talk about like "Taking care of the poor", "doing onto others" and "Turning the other cheek".

"If Jesus were alive today, the one thing he wouldn't be is a Christian"- Mark Twain.

All religions are included. Or they were, the Commission is attempting to exclude Christians by claiming they are phobics. You are OK with one group of people being picked out and vilified ?

It isn't a constitutional issue. If you don't want to bake a cake for gay people, your solution is to close down your bakery. You have a religion, your business does not.

This shit was resolved legally 50 years ago when some racist cracker decided Jesus hated black people as much as they did (without any biblical foundation) and tried to use that as an excuse not to serve them.

The courts slapped them down hard like they are slapping them down hard now.

Not to worry, in another 20 years, all the churches are going to treat their stance on gays the way they treat their stance on racism, slavery and witch burning. Something they will claim was a "misunderstanding' of the bible.

Matthew 5:21 “You have heard that it was said to the people long ago, ‘You shall not murder, will be subject to judgment. is answerable to the court.

Matthew 19:18 He says to Him, "Which?" And Jesus said, "'You shall not murder, you shall not commit adultery, you shall not steal, you shall not bear false witness,

seriously, FatIrishSow, you should not be losing these Bible Versing quotes to an atheist with Google.

I want to live in a society where one can choose to be an intolerant sexist bigot.

Count me out of the war on social injustice.

i'm completely for vilifying people who use the bible to justify homophobia, as well as ones who use it to justify racism and misogyny.

Just like I think we should vilify those who used it as an excuse to justify slavery and burning witches- both of which are in the bible, but the worshipers of the Cosmic Jewish Zombie on a Stick were "misinterpretations" of the Imaginary Sky Pixie's words.

Again, where did JESUS talk about Homosexuality. Not Moses or St. Paul. You guys don't call yourselves Mosiacs or Paulians.... you call yourselves Christians. So you hsould be able to find a spot on quote from the bible where Jesus said, "I don't like the gay stuff."

Kind of hard. Jesus was a guy who hung around with dudes and showed no interest in women...

  • Matthew 19:4-6, "And He answered and said, 'Have you not read that He who created them from the beginning made them male and female, 5 and said, ‘For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’? 6 “So they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.'”

Ole Joe thinks Jesus was going against the Bible and was OK with men poking each other's rectums? LOL

You're full of shit. Religious liberty does not mean intolerance. What a stupid uninformed hateful thing to say.

Does not sound very polite to me.

Being at liberty to make mistakes is fundamental in a civilized society.

I take it you support government enforced equality measures?

Be a slave, or starve. Got it.

What part of "Congress shall make no law" is unclear to you? What part of "the free expression thereof" confuses you?

I don't recall seeing "except for" in the Amendment. You?
