Zealots Marching Tuesday

Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Monday that the Department of Justice is creating a “religious liberty task force.”

Sessions said the task force, co-chaired by Associate Attorney General Jesse Panuccio and the assistant attorney general for the Justice Department’s Office of Legal Policy, Beth Williams, will help the department fully implement the religious liberty guidance it issued last year.

The guidance was a byproduct of President Trump’s executive order directing agencies to respect and protect religious liberty and political speech.
Sessions said on Monday that the task force will “ensure all Justice Department components are upholding that guidance in the cases they bring and defend, the arguments they make in court, the policies and regulations they adopt, and how we conduct our operations.”

The announcement came during the department’s religious liberty summit.

Sessions said the cultural climate in this country — and in the West more generally — has become less hospitable to people of faith in recent years, and as a result many Americans have felt their freedom to practice their faith has been under attack.

    60% said Friends and Family

    11% said Mainstream Media

      Well, we knew Trump supporters were majority low intelligence people who wish they didn’t have to pretend to be civilized. Uncivilized Trump showed them that it’s ok to shoot off your know-nothing mouth.

    Religious liberty task force. How far we’ve come from republicans in the Reagan years, getting the bright idea to get votes via crazy religious people aka evangelicals. Abortion was the wedge issue they played up to get votes, now the evil party has evolved into trying to take away birth control, trying to erase legal abortion, allowing people to use their ridiculous ‘deeply held religious values’ to refuse to do their jobs.

    Now it’s gone even further, the highest level of government wanting to instill some religious nonsense into play, a task force? Oh, brother.

      What gets me is that these evangelicals know that Trump is only in it for the votes and doesn’t give two shits about religion otherwise, but that he can be used to advance their decidedly anti-democratic agenda. So they’re good.

    Zealotry comes with plenty of self-righteousness and indignance, with the focus strictly on control of others. Should be considered the enemy of humanity.

    A clouded and humid 24 minutes to the Black Cypress this evening. A little butterfly. Yesterday I saw a hummingmoth with its long probiscus in the flowers in front of the Nuevo Vallarta.
