This is a huge waste of energy. We should be focused on crushing religious bakers and florists because those bigots don't have state pensions to fall back on.

“What a puke. Christians simply want for the government to stay out of our Christian beliefs instead of imprisoning us when our beliefs go against the invented rights of a lawless Supreme Court. And then he calls us hypocrites for not wanting Muslim theocracy in our country, suggesting we want to push our Christian values on the government? Does he know anything about how this country was founded? Has he ever read the Constitution or the Declaration of Independence? What an idiot.”

This sums it up pretty well

“Smith seems not to understand the difference between Christianity, a foundation of the American system that protects religious rights and liberty, and Islam, an authoritarian religion which wants to impose its values on others,” Kincaid writes.

Solid gold.

Mike Huckabee is an evil motherfucker: http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-maddow-show ... w-the-land

Quote:
While defending Kentucky Clerk Kim Davis’s refusal to issue marriage licenses out of her religious opposition to same-sex marriage, Mike Huckabee said Wednesday that the Supreme Court’s 1857 ruling in Dred Scott v. Sandford – which held that all blacks, free or enslaved, could not be American citizens – is still the law of the land even though no one follows it. […]

“I’ve been just drilled by TV hosts over the past week, ‘How dare you say that, uh, it’s not the law of the land?’” Huckabee said. “Because that’s their phrase, ‘it’s the law of the land.’ Michael, the Dred Scott decision of 1857 still remains to this day the law of the land which says that black people aren’t fully human. Does anybody still follow the Dred Scott Supreme Court decision?”


I almost typed: "Mike Huckabee is a stupid motherfucker." But he's not stupid. He knows this isn't the case. He knows that the 13th and 14th amendments make that court order null and void--just like, if the people of the US really wanted to define marriage as between one man and one woman, they could have the legislatures draft and ratify a 28th amendment to make Obergfell obsolete--but he knows that most people whose ear he has don't have this sort of grasp on civics, so vague memories of things they once heard about in high school history class can be persuasive. And he's using that so he can sell more books and get another talk show gig where he can whine about "activist judges" and thank God for releasing Kim Davis when really it was a procedural thing (the judge had to let her out, since her deputies were giving licenses). Fuck Mike Huckabee in his stupid fucking face.

I did a search on what I said about Huckabee in the past and I wasn't disappointed. I'm guessing there's even more enmity I've expressed in the archives. Fuck that guy--among contemporary Republicans Santorum might be the only one that can come close in that category.

Santorum might be slime, but I don't think he's as underhanded as Huckabee, ya know? He's got that Catholic frankness where he just throws up his hands and goes, "That's just the way things are! Sorry!" Huckabee is much more manipulative, because he can bring different faces to bear to speak to different audiences.

Looks like Kim Davis made them change the marriage licenses so that her name isn't on them. So, in other words, she gave up.

But she also said she isn't sure if they are binding if her name isn't on them.

But if that turns out to be true that without her name they aren't legally binding, then she really didn't give in at all.
