Bill to make Bible official state book goes to Tenn. governor
USA TODAY NETWORK Joel Ebert, The Tennessean 8:17 p.m. EDT April 4, 2016

NASHVILLE — Tennessee is poised to make history as the first state in the nation to recognize the Holy Bible as its official book.

After nearly 30 minutes of debate, the state Senate on Monday approved the measure, sponsored by Sen. Steve Southerland, R-Morristown, with a 19-8 vote, sending the legislation to Gov. Bill Haslam’s desk.

While proponents stressed the historic significance of the holy book and its religious meaning, opponents argue that the bill trivializes something they hold sacred.

Both Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey and Senate Majority Leader Mark Norris told The Tennessean last week that they expected the measure to be given approval in the Senate, despite their opposition.

When will America learn that America was FOUNDED on CHRISTIAN principals and by Christians? The LIBERALS always bring up this BOGUS argument of 'SEPARATION of Church & STATE'. That's NOWHERE in our Constitution. It is only found in some Thomas Jefferson (Unitarian) comments. Jefferson's musings holds NO water whatsoever.

Wrong in Kentucky? Pastors can't call Homosexuality sinful.

What's wrong in Kentucky? Pastors can't call Homosexuality sinful..

What's next? Laws to mandate calling he/she transexuals and other homosexuals as wholesome life styles? /s/ Steve K

Sets religious test for volunteer counselors for juvenile offenders

The state of Kentucky has begun imposing a religious test on volunteer pastor counselors in its youth division, insisting that they refrain from calling homosexuality “sinful” and dismissing those who cannot bend their religious faith to accommodate the state requirements.

The policy was uncovered by Liberty Counsel, which has sent a letter to Bob Hayter, commissioner of the Kentucky Department of Juvenile Justice, demanding that the state religious test be dropped and that a dismissed counselor be reinstated.

“Liberty Counsel writes regarding the blatantly unconstitutional revocation of volunteer prison minister status of ordained Christian minister David Wells, who has provided voluntary spiritual counseling and mentorship to juvenile inmates under the control of the Department of Juvenile Justice. … This revocation was issued by Warren County Regional Juvenile Detention Center on the basis of the April 4, 2014, DJJ Policy 912, which mandates full DJJ support of homosexuality and transvestism.

“With no evidence of any violation of DJJ policy on Mr. Wells’ part, his volunteer status was revoked by the Warren RJDC superintendent because he could not sign a state-mandated statement that homosexuality was not ‘sinful,’ among other things,” the letter said.

The policy states that DJJ staff, volunteers and others “shall not imply or tell LGBTQI juveniles that they are abnormal, deviant, sinful or that they can or should change their sexual orientation or gender identity.”

WND requested a comment from the state agency, but there was no immediate response.

Get “Takedown,” and learn how the American family and marriage are being sabotaged by the ideas of extreme-left radicals, starting with Karl Marx.

The state agency was told in the letter it has until July 31 to reinstate Wells’ volunteer visitor credentials.

Retired Person's Perspective

by AC @, Wednesday, April 27, 2016, 20:49 @ AC

Retired Person's Perspective

1. I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people. I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out.

2. I changed my car horn to gunshot sounds. People move out of the way much faster now.

3. You can tell a lot about a woman's mood just by her hands. If they are holding a gun, she's probably very unhappy.

4. You know that tingly little feeling you get when you really like someone you've just met? That's common sense leaving your body.

5. I don't like making plans for the day. Because then the word "premeditated" gets thrown around in the courtroom.

6. I didn't make it to the gym today. That makes 1,500 days in a row.

7. I decided to change calling the bathroom the John and renamed it the Jim. I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

8. Dear paranoid people who check behind shower curtains for murderers: If you find one, what's your plan?

9. Everyone has a right to be stupid. Politicians just abuse the privilege.

Old age is not as bad as I thought. It's a good feeling when you just don't give a hoot anymore and you feel happy just to wake up in the morning.


NC & federal government sue each other over transgender bath

I am still with North Carolina! WHY on God's green earth should a young 4 year old girl have to share a bathroom with some pervert/queeer (meaning different/unholy/unwholesome different)/weirdo whacko of the likes of Bruce Jenner or any other adult male in drag? /s/ Steve K

N.C., federal government sue each other over transgender bathroom law

Mary Orndorff Troyan, USA TODAY Washington Bureau

WASHINGTON – The battle over transgender rights expanded dramatically Monday when North Carolina and the federal government sued each other over a new state law that requires people to use the restroom that corresponds with their gender at birth.

Hours after North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory accused the federal government of wrongly applying federal civil rights laws to transgender people, the Justice Department sued North Carolina for what it called "state-sponsored discrimination" against the transgender community.

The sharply worded exchanges between McCrory and Attorney General Loretta Lynch escalated the legal fight over the rights of people who no longer identify with their birth gender.

Federal officials allege McCrory’s willingness to enforce his state's restroom law, known as House Bill (HB) 2, “constitutes a pattern or practice of employment discrimination on the basis of sex” in violation of the federal civil rights law. Lynch, saying North Carolina is her home state, compared the state's actions to historic resistance to desegregation.

"This is a time to summon our national virtues of inclusivity, diversity, compassion and open-mindedness," she said.

North Carolina's "compliance with and implementation of HB2 stigmatizes and singles out transgender employees, results in their isolation and exclusion, and perpetuates a sense that they are not worthy of equal treatment and respect,” the Justice Department's lawsuit says.

The suit was filed in the Middle District of North Carolina; McCrory’s case was filed in the Eastern District.

Dozens of Methodist clergy members come out as homosexuals

Church rules bar "self-avowed, practicing homosexuals" from ministry

Defying church ban, dozens of Methodist clergy come out as gay and lesbianBy Daniel Burke, CNN Religion Editor
Updated 5:08 PM ET, Mon May 9, 2016

Dozens of United Methodist clergy members came out as lesbian, gay or bisexual on Monday, defying their church's ban on "self-avowed practicing homosexuals" serving in ministry and essentially daring their supervisors to discipline them.

In a public letter posted online, 111 pastors, deacons, elders and candidates for ministry said church rules require "that we not bring our full selves to ministry, that we hide from view our sexual orientations and gender identities."

"While some of us have been lucky to serve in places where we could serve honestly and openly, there are others in places far more hostile, who continue to serve faithfully even at tremendous cost to themselves, their families, and yes, even the communities they serve, who do not receive the fullness of their pastor's gifts because a core part must remain hidden," the letter continues.

The self-outing came one day before the United Methodist Church, one of the nation's largest Protestant denominations, convenes its quadrennial General Conference in Portland, Oregon.

Feds' transgender guidance provokes fierce backlash

Feds' transgender guidance provokes fierce backlash
By Ray Sanchez, CNN
Updated 6:44 PM ET, Sat May 14, 2016

(CNN)The Obama administration's directive on the use of school bathrooms by transgender students has provoked a torrent of criticism. It also marks a new front in America's long-running culture wars.

The latest battle over transgender rights and sexual identity comes in response to a joint letter Friday from the Departments of Education and Justice directing public schools to ensure that "transgender students enjoy a supportive and nondiscriminatory school environment."

Vanita Gupta, head of the Justice Department's civil rights division, addressed the issue Saturday in remarks at the University of Minnesota Law School commencement.

"Even after the Supreme Court's landmark gay marriage decision last year in Obergefell v. Hodges that guaranteed all people 'equal dignity in the eyes of the law,' we see new efforts to deny LGBTI individuals the respect they deserve and the protection our laws guarantee," she said.

"Efforts like House Bill 2 in North Carolina not only violate the laws that govern our nation, but also the values that define us as a people."

A legal standoff between the administration and North Carolina over the state's controversial House Bill 2 is part of a broader public debate on transgender rights in schools and public life. The statewide policy bans individuals from using public bathrooms that do not correspond to their biological sex and restricts cities from passing nondiscrimination laws.
The Obama administration directive goes beyond the bathroom issue to touch on privacy rights, education records and sex-segregated athletics. And that has unleashed a fierce backlash from ministers, parents and politicians who say the federal government has gone too far.

The joint letter, of course, does not carry the force of law. The threat of a cut in federal funding, however, is abundantly clear.

Politicians lead the charge

Prominent politicians across the nation are defiantly standing up against the guidance from Washington.

Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick accused the Obama administration of "blackmail" and called the directive "social engineering."

"Families in America will not accept it," he told reporters.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott, on Twitter, promised a fight: "Obama can't rewrite the Civil Rights Act. He's not a king."

Fitzgerald: Bathroom decree is Obama at his worst

Fitzgerald: Bathroom decree is Obama at his worst
Joe Fitzgerald Saturday, May 14, 2016

There was a time when candidate Barack Obama was still properly in awe of the office he sought, and of the opportunity it offered to uplift Americans by the power of his example.

As Robert Frost might have put it, he was fast approaching a point where two roads diverged, and had he chosen the one less traveled by, what a difference it might have made in the kind of president he has become.

But to paraphrase the Greek poet Bion, Obama did not acquire the office; it acquired him, until he became what he is now, an imperious, self-absorbed emperor whose timid sycophants dare not let him know his garments are on fire.

How tone-deaf our 44th president has become.

Can he not see himself as others see him?

Forget him scolding Cambridge cops for having “acted stupidly” before he had any facts; erase from your mind the image of him doing the wave with Raul Castro, a Communist dictator, while Brussels was under ruthless assault by terrorists; forget how days later he was dancing the tango in Buenos Aires while the world remained traumatized by those bloody attacks; forget how he continued his golf game after learning New Hampshire journalist James Foley had been beheaded by ISIS.

He seemed so above it all.

Now, as the sun begins to set on his incumbency, he wades into the explosive issue of permitting transgendered individuals to decide which bathrooms they want to use, flagrantly ignoring the obvious dynamics of throwing everyone together in an atmosphere that’s intensely personal.

Make no mistake, it’s not the least bit hateful for anyone to feel uncomfortable, embarrassed or fearful upon seeing a conflicted interloper walking through the bathroom door of his or her own choice.

But Obama is now urging schools around the nation to embrace that scenario as normal.

Please. It’s no such thing.
