Leaked Draft of Trump’s Religious Freedom Order Reveals Sweeping Plans to Legalize Discrimination | The Nation

This I will leave for the entire day tomorrow. Please read the ENTIRE article and draft, it is a draft and I believe it is real. If this is what folks/our country is up to, we have gone to far. Can you imagine what we could all do in sports, denying children’s right to participate in junior clubs, in coaching and in officiating. Deny adults access to administrative, coaching and officiating opportunities in both public and private sectors. We are not even talking about education, military, health care. This is wrong, there is no discussion with me, it is wrong. One has to hope and pray that our Judicial body stays firm on the laws of our constitution. This is also why Senator McConnell, our speaker, must not change the 60 vote threshold requirement on Supreme court nominees. Our judicial body is our final front, hopefully in two years we can get a more balanced executive branch that every government needs.

If signed, the order would create wholesale exemptions for people and organizations who claim religious objections to same-sex marriage, premarital sex, abortion, and trans identity.

Didn’t realize her history.  She was loved by her people. Catherine of Aragon – Wikipedia Catherine’s English subjects held her in high esteem, and her death set off tremendous mourning among the English people. The controversial book The Education of Christian Women by Juan Luis Vives, which claimed women have the right to an education, was commissioned by and dedicated to her. Such was Catherine’s impression on people that even her enemy, Thomas Cromwell, said of her, “If not for her sex, she could have defied all the heroes of History.” She successfully appealed for the lives of the rebels involved in the Evil May Day, for the sake of their families. Catherine also won widespread admiration by starting an extensive programme for the relief of the poor. She was a patron of Renaissance humanism, and a friend of the great scholars Erasmus of Rotterdam and Thomas More.

Noam Chomsky, this is really perfect, I love his discussion about make America great again, and listen at the 8:00 minute mark. This is so well put. The resistance needs to stay calm, focused and work on each battle, it is going to be a long war. But as he said, it is possible to pull this back to the middle. My husband and I are hopeful we can do this before too much of our national lands, waters, and resources are plundered and our human rights are trampled.

You have got to be kidding me Chris Christie, I am watching you now..on MSNBC and you are seriously telling us that it was not his fault, that the folks that were in charge completely screwed it up and that he had nothing to do with it. The man is in charge of hiring his staff to make sure it is thought out and implemented well. So now you are seriously blaming the workers, not the boss, for this Muslim ban debacle. Incredible.
