I’m sorry, but did I miss the memo? When did “religious freedom” ever mean anything BUT “white Christian dominionist global dominance” when used by the GOP?

Fat, white, bald, goatee, imbecile, obssessively frighted and angry about “replacement”, etc. etc. etc. Right out of central casting…

“This month, the Uighur Human Rights Policy Act of 2020 passed by unanimous consent in the Senate and by a 413-1 vote in the House.

“It passed with a vote of 413-1. Kentucky Republican Thomas Massie was the sole opponent.”

Libertarians like Massie seem to be their own cult if they can’t stand for religious freedom and human rights. Maybe it only matters to him when it’s some dimwit kid from the Covington Catholic academy.

I’m guessing this is not a position that would require Senate confirmation (not that they wouldn’t confirm…)

I’ve worked for USAID. In Muslim countries. USAID helps build bridges to the rest of the world. Or it used to.

Whose job will it be to point out that if all Muslims converted to some form of Christianity his access to available pork products will be greatly reduced?

Mark Lloyd as a “religious freedom advisor”? Sure.

Next up: Amy Cooper as a racial relations advisor.

This week I read/heard that evolution does not mean evolve to a more conscious state, or up one intellect, but to change. And unfortunately the stupids have been reproducing, and the nanny state is making it hard for them to self terminate.
How about a nice game of lawn darts?
