    My sincere apologies to liberals everywhere. I know quite a few in real life, and not a single one of them* is a 'smarmy little conniving conman**'. They are, to a person, good honest decent people who are simply wrong about political things!


    *OK, there's Martin, but I don't think it's because he's a liberal
    ** Truth be told, I don't think Jim is, either - I think he's just screwed-up-in-the-head who's only here (for the most part) to be a pain in the butt



    ETA: I think we have some liberals on Tweb who are also decent honest people - wanted to make sure I included that.

    I've met a number of liberals who are kind, decent people until the subject veers into politics, and then they suddenly become smarmy little conniving con-men. It's one of the reasons I generally avoid political discussions in person.
    Some may call me foolish, and some may call me odd
    But I'd rather be a fool in the eyes of man
    Than a fool in the eyes of God

    Most of the people I work with at the "faith based mission" thing are liberals -- both religiously and politically. We most certainly discuss politics, and avoid the same sex marriage thing.

    We put all that aside to focus on the needs of the people to whom we minister.

    I see the US is making a bid to become a fascist theocracy with proposed changes to labour laws.

    The rule would “clarify that the religious exemption allows religious contractors not only to prefer in employment individuals who share their religion, but also to condition employment on acceptance of or adherence to religious tenets as understood by the employing contractor.”

    In other words, not only could a religious hospital that contracts with the government refuse to hire someone who is Muslim or Jewish, they could also refuse to hire someone in a same-sex marriage or fire someone who had sex before marriage.

    I see you failed to provide a source for this OPINION of an uncited rule.

    The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) announced a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking intended to clarify the civil rights protections afforded to religious organizations that contract with the federal government. The proposed rule ensures that conscience and religious freedom are given the broadest protection permitted by law. The proposed rule is currently available for public inspection and will be published in the Federal Register tomorrow, August 15, 2019.
    This proposed rule is intended to promote religiously inspired employment discrimination. I heard about it on 'Opening Arguements' 306.

    You don't know how to do a link to the actual cite? It's not that I don't trust you --- I just doubt your veracity.

    Here's the link you should have provided.

    This is the actual proposed rule from the Federal Register.

    Let's see if you are capable of explaining how this fits your claim that

    ...the US is making a bid to become a fascist theocracy with proposed changes to labour laws.
    How does this proposed rule do that?

    Or, "it's not that I don't believe you, but you never tell the truth."
