The Saucon Valley School District in Pennsylvania illegally treated Satanists different from Christians, and the paper trail is extensive.
How will the district defend itself? Victim blaming. "If they weren't evil Satan worshippers, there wouldn't have been a threat."
That's just as bad as "did you see what she was wearing? She was asking for it."
It seems they care about 1st Amendment rights as long as it only applies to Christians and not other religious groups like the Satanists.... sigh.
It really is the content they object to. How dare a school teach factual information.
Good! Sue them out of their socks. And then sue the socks.
Am I the only one who read Sauron ?
About TST in New Mexico: Samuel Alito’s Mom’s Satanic Abortion Clinic. Just made a donation.
OT: It's about to get Stormy, and has nothing to do with Trump.
"A rare “high risk” Level 5 out of 5 alert has been issued for parts of the Midwest and Mid-South, impacting nearly 3 million people, the National Weather Service’s Storm Prediction Center said Friday."
I'm slightly north of the level 5 area (still a 4). It's bad enough that they have canceled a watch party at Carver Hawkeye Arena (Iowa City) for tonight's NCAAW's Final Four basketball game. That's a big deal around here.
Everyone stay safe!
USAF commander pushes proselytizing Easter egg hunt on airmen. MRFF stops him in his bunny tracks.
The TL;DR version of all of this seems to be that the Saucon Valley School district is shucking and jiving as hard as they can to find SOME kind of excuse why they should reject the After School Satan club, when (my guess) they know damned well that There Is 𝗡𝗢 𝗩𝗔𝗟𝗜𝗗 𝗘𝗫𝗖𝗨𝗦𝗘.
And I hope the ACLU takes the district and its members to the cleaners!
Well you know the old saying, always judge a book by its cover, never read it but still flip out about the contents. It sounds better in the original ‘Murikin.
I caught up with all the posts on yesterday's article about the Yam Yahoo's legal woes. Missed all the fun.
Oh, and just look at who's snarling about Trump being held accountable by The Man. The G O freaking P. What a shock. The same group that shrugged their shoulders over the Treasonous One's incitement of an insurrection over a legal election has their dander up NOW?
Hey, GQP: You can just shut it now. Shut. The Fuck. Up.
Watch as the slithery Saucon school district first ties itself in knots, then gets sued down to their socks.
That almost rhymes...
We better hope that this case doesn't make it all the way up to CAWCNO (formerly known as SCOTUS), because CAWCNO will use it to advance their Christian nationalist agenda by deciding in favor of the school, thus setting a precedent allowing schools to ban all non-Christian after-school clubs.
If I were the judge, I think I'd order a reboot. I.e. *every* club reapply using the updated forms and procedures. That gets all the paperwork into compliance and gives the school a chance to treat all clubs equally under law going forward...and if they don't, removes the "improper paperwork" defense.
A reason Russia is so ineffective in Ukraine: While they have a lot of reconnaissance satellites, they don't have the right kind or the ground operations for them to be effective. Ukraine can get constantly updated statistics on ground forces daily but Russia can only get clear images every 2 weeks.
Of course TST doesn't believe in the literal existence of Satan. But that “focus on free inquiry and rationalism, the scientific basis for which we know what we know about the world around us.” is every bit as sneaky-poo naughty! Anything that might put even a tiny dent in the tribal superstitions must be stopped at all costs!
