Unsurprisingly, conservative Christians are doing all they can to turn the US into a theocracy. They want to control everyone, not just women, not just LGBT… folks, not just people of different religions, etc. Everyone. All based on their belief that some god wants this. They of course can’t show this god even exists or theirs is the right version. They find they must invent a god that agrees with them.
They are trying to claim that the US constitution determines the laws of this land and if it doesn’t mention something, those laws can’t be on the federal level. McConnell is of course now wanting a federal level law to make abortion illegal, which shows just how much conservative Christians lie when they have claimed how much they want states to have the ability to rule on abortion the way the people want:
“If the leaked opinion became the final opinion, legislative bodies — not only at the state level but at the federal level — certainly could legislate in that area, And if this were the final decision, that was the point that it should be resolved one way or another in the legislative process. So yeah, it’s possible.”
They don’t care about that at all. They want their way no matter what, democracy be damned. And evidently their god be damned since it says not to lie and they have chosen to do so.
It’s notable that some of the justices are also now shown to have lied under oath with their claims of respecting precedent.
Of course, these cowards are sitting behind a fence to protect them, something that they refused to allow when it came to women getting their legal healthcare.
It is time for everyone to stand up against this, and for anyone who wants to claim they are a Christian, just not THAT type, to be loud to show us there is a difference. If not, they are going to be responsible for the destruction of the freedoms of the US because of their tacit acceptance of this nonsense. If there is a theocracy, there can only be one “church”.
Which is more important? Your freedoms or your need to circle the wagons to protect your religion?
