Political Correctness run amok in Bill H.R. 5 would allow churches to be sued for discrimination on comments made at gatherings or on the Internet, including anti-gay/transgender speech.
A vote in the House of Representatives could come as early as this Thursday on H.R. 5, the contentious bill that would place nearly all Christian ministries, religious organizations, and faith-based companies in the cross-hairs of discrimination lawsuits. The bill looks almost certain to pass in the House. Although passage in the Senate may be doubtful, the sheer audacity of this legislation should be taken as a cautionary tale.
The law adds sexual orientation and transgender identity as protected categories and then wildly expands the list of activities and organizations impacted by the civil rights law to include any public “gathering,” “exhibition,” or “display,” or anything involving the provision of goods or “any service, or program.” During one House subcommittee hearing, employment law expert Lawrence Lorber flatly acknowledged that the bill would apply to “churches” and “houses of worship.”
The vast scope of H.R. 5 is best illustrated by the fact that, unlike prior civil rights laws that were limited to activities at physical locations, this legislation extends to cyberspace. It would apply to any group that offers retail sales or services “online.” Any Christian organization, ministry, or business with a website could be at risk.
Most startling of all, H.R. 5 expressly targets for extinction the religious liberties of faith-based organizations. The bill blatantly states that the protections of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA) – the law guarding rights of religious conscience that was upheld by the Supreme Court in the Hobby Lobby case – will not apply to these new civil rights laws.
In the past, when controversial issues of gay rights-versus-religious freedom arose in Congress, the question of accommodating religious liberty customarily had a place at the table. As general counsel for NRB, I had the privilege of testifying several times in the Senate and in the House on the need for religious protections. But that was then. Today, the hostility against orthodox belief seems almost palpable. But along with that comes something else; the reminder, with crystal clarity, why National Religious Broadcasters exists and the mission for which it was birthed 75 years ago.

The bill designed to destroy our Judaeo Christian culture and to control the way to think about sexuality. Not that discrimination should be allowed against LBGTQ; but should they have special civil rights that stump on the rights of all other Americans?May 16, 2019 at 3:22 pm #150079

Interview with the grievance studies hoaxers
Jordan B Peterson
Published on Jan 11, 2019
In the second week of January (2019) I spoke with Dr. Peter Boghossian, Dr. James Lindsay, and Helen Pluckrose, authors of the infamous “Grievance studies” hoax papers. We discussed their motivations and the consequences of their actions.
Portland State University is currently taking disciplinary actions against Dr. Boghossian, having found him guilty of academic misconduct for failing to have PSU’s Institutional Review Board approve his “studies” before they were conducted (!)
Draw your own conclusions…

Hoaxers are on the low rung of society, not deserving of any notoriety.May 21, 2019 at 5:32 pm #150374
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) newest new green deal rant is against people growing non-native vegetables in community gardens like cauliflower, that it’s a throwback to Colonial oppression of people of color — that these White people should come out of their comfort zone and grow other things their palate is not accustomed to like yucca plant.
I’m sure Mark Dice will run with this one.May 22, 2019 at 12:46 am #150381
Why is everything considered oppression to these people?
It’s no wonder they’re so miserable, too damn caught up in looking for things that upset them. Insane is what it is.May 22, 2019 at 10:27 am #150395
Bird, because the divisive politics of the DNC centers on identity politics and class warfare, convincing people they are oppressed and spreading the idea of how they are the champions of the down trodden.
DNC presidential candidate and NYC Mayor Bill DeBlasio, following AOC’s comments about eating less hamburgers to save the planet, has declared “Meatless Mondays” for all its 1,800 schools that will only serve vegetarian lunch on Mondays.May 22, 2019 at 10:55 am #150401
Thank heavens for Mark Dice. I also listen to Steven Crowder and PJW. Basically anyone who isn’t insane at this point.May 22, 2019 at 5:43 pm #150412

The Collapse of the American Empire?
The Agenda with Steve Paikin
Published on Sep 12, 2018
The Agenda welcomes Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chris Hedges, who over the past decade and a half has made his name as a columnist, activist, and author. He’s been a vociferous public critic of presidents on both sides of the American political spectrum, and his latest book, ‘America, the Farewell Tour,’ is nothing short of a full-throated throttling of the political, social, and cultural state of his country.May 23, 2019 at 12:08 pm #150475
