It makes Republicans more Republicany.

A new survey from PRRI confirms FOX News is having the exact effect you’d expect—making White Christians feel more discriminated against than any other group.
The Hawaii Department of Education has nixed Christian propaganda from the state’s online curriculum after groups like American Atheists sent out letters warning of the constitutional violations in the program.
The DOE audited the curriculum run by Acellus Learning Accelerator and agreed, “the amount of non-secular content was unacceptable.”
As an example, one test question in a middle school course is: Jesus performed miracles (such as laying his hands on the sick). The possible answers are 1) True or 2) False. It is the view of this examiner that Acellus presents a curriculum that promotes Christian values and religious material in the public school.
Over 100 religious and non-religious group leaders published a letter urging Joe Biden and Kamala Harris to affirm the nation’s religious diversity and do everything from hiring people from a variety of religious and non-religious backgrounds to stopping taxpayer-funded groups from violating anti-discrimination laws.
“Religious freedom” has been an icky word for a while, used as a free pass by Christians who want to discriminate openly on the taxpayer dime. But when applied correctly, it can be inclusive as well as a safety net for people with and without religion.
A court case accusing a New Jersey middle school of indoctrinating students by teaching them the tenets of Islam came to a close after 2 1/2 years. The federal court ruled the school did not violate the Establishment Clause, infuriating Christian parents who only want to violate church/state separation when it’s their own version of God.
Oh no, it’s Rick Wiles again. (Isn’t he supposed to be out street fighting liberals?) Instead, he opted to stay in and talk trash about Pennsylvania health secretary Dr. Rachel Levine, who happens to be transgender.
You have to wonder how seriously people like him take the idea of “Christian love” when he only ever seems to spew hate.
We have thoughts about why the first lockdown didn’t work:The first lockdown didn’t work because people like this guy refused to follow the rules. Now they’re using that as justification to hurt more people in the name of Jesus.If the first lockdown worked, why do we “need” another one? And if the first lockdown didn’t work, why would we have another one? Wake up silly people. Just wake up!! 🔥Pastor Greg Locke @pastorlocke
A nativity scene will be on display outside a government office building in Indiana, despite being declared unconstitutional earlier this year.
It’s unmistakably a Christian display yet even the lights that illuminate it are juicing off a taxpayer-funded utility bill. On Tuesday, the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals voted 2-1 to allow the display to remain there… at least until they get around to deciding the case on its merits.
In the meantime, perhaps The Satanic Temple should get working on putting a Baphomet statue nearby...
Democratic Congressman Don Beyer of Virginia joined the Congressional Freethought Caucus today. Beyer is an Anglican/Episcopalian but he supports science-based policies and believes church/state separation is not a solely atheistic endeavor.At the invitation of my friends & , I joined the Congressional Freethought Caucus, which pushes for science-based policies (key during a pandemic), opposes discrimination against the religious and nonreligious, and defends the separation of church and state!
The Freethought Caucus now has 14 members, all Democrats. All 14 were re-elected this month.
We really wanted prevailing reason to sink the Noah’s Ark theme park in Kentucky, but there’s something congruently biblical about its demise being an “act of God.” Due to COVID-19, Ark Encounter’s attendance is on a downward trajectory.
