Discussion: Evangelicals Downplay Possible Roe Repeal: 'All That Does' Is Let States Decide


Another word from another thug in Christ.

No better a Christian than his late father. I will allow others to guess his dad’s fate upon his passing.


As opposed to letting women freely decide, anywhere in the 50 states?


They only like freedom in theory and in tv ads.


Oh, fuck this guy.


Can I weigh in on whether this guy should have a vasectomy?

I cannot, for the life of me, understand what right anyone has to make medical decisions for someone they don’t know and without a medical degree or knowledge of the medical history.

These folks don’t care whether the abortion is to save the life of the mother or to prevent a child from coming into the world so deformed that it may either not survive or need a lifetime of intensive care. Which they don’t want to pay for anyway.

The Right still believes the urban myth that black welfare queens have children to increase their welfare checks and that women use abortion as birth control. Neither of which is reality, but that’s the justification for this.

If you don’t like abortion, don’t have one, but don’t interfere with a medical decision for someone else. Just another effort to keep women ‘in their place’.


I’m sure that if Roe is overturned it will cut into Falwell’s business model and profit structure. If he wants to take his case to the states, it will cost more, as will the bill for having to bribe more politicians. Right now the most he has to try to buy is 535. Additionally, if Roe is overturned, the nationwide lack of interest in overturning the ruling will result in fewer dollars coming into Junior’s enterprise. (Fear and hatred rule the hearts of his contributors.) Jerry is lying to us. But, when hasn’t he lied?


Trump and his Republican allies in the Senate plan to install a conservative justice

If their plan was to install a conservative justice I would be disappointed but not distraught. Unfortunately, measured by the metric that claims there is still a moderate faction in today’s GOP the glee over a conservative justice means the goal is to reverse every “liberal” interpretation of the Constitution since Plessy v Ferguson.

The more significant shift on the high court, he said, would likely be the help given to conservatives in their fight for what they call religious freedom.

That is the real goal and the real threat to the country. What they call religious freedom is a judicially installed Evangelical, fundamentalist faux Christian theocracy that sanctions blatant discrimination in the name of their sincerely held religious beliefs.


I think the states should decide how much to tax religion. Let’s say 90%


X a gizzilion


Jerry Falwell Jr., much like his father, is not a Christian, only a slef-righteous pickpocket.


I think the “high” court lost all credibility thanks to Justice Kennedy’s successful marketing of the swing vote. I thinks both parties to a dispute will try to avoid purchased decisions and avoid the “high” court. Need an abortion? Go Fly Fishing in Ireland. Can’t travel because of the travel ban? Have your Irish “Cousin” come visit you. Better yet, avoid sex with men, there are alternatives.


When they get involved in politics they should lose their tax exemption, like right now.


Yeah, right Jerry. You’ve on the verge of catching the white whale. You’re so happy, you’re probably having to stay out of public view to conceal the hard-on you have 24/7.


Until the new and improved Supreme Court makes them illegal again.


why is it a vindication of Christian Political Power to destroy God’s Green Earth, the creatures and beings he so lovingly made? Why is it a vindication that this administration has done nothing but lie from the day it took office - thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

”The unlikely marriage between the thrice-married president and Christian conservatives has always been focused on Trump’s ability to re-shape the nation’s judicial branch.”

It’s only a matter of time until he starts cheating on them with a younger, more attractive voting bloc.


“The left is going to try very hard to say this is all about overturning Roe,” said Johnnie Moore, a Southern Baptist minister

Well it is.

The xtains, surely they are not Christians, will then need to find another scapegoat. I imagine it will be full on blatant racism against any not of their color. On the other hand, as they did before, hospitals will find another name for the procedure, that is if you have the $$$$s. That includes Catholic hospitals.


One of the biggest cons ever pulled by the superstitious community otherwise known as “religious people” is that their invisible man in the sky is “pro life”. WTF?!! The imaginary god of the bible is a genocidal maniac who kills men, women, children and fetuses whenever something rubs it the wrong way. These holier-than-thou pricks like Falwell simply refuse to admit that they have zero moral standing when it comes to the fake cause of “protecting the unborn”. In Hosea 13:16, the crazed god of the bible literally rips the fetuses from the womb, as well as kills infants, all because the Samarians weren’t sufficiently subservient and groveling. Whoever the fuck came up with the bullshit about god being pro-life?
HOSEA 13:16 - Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up.
