Touted as the anti-LGBT bill, GA House Bill 757 – a bill allegedly designed to protect religious freedom in Georgia (religious freedom is under attack??) – is misunderstood by its supporters and detractors.

I am a Free Speech absolutist. The only time speech should be regulated or restricted is when the expression infringes on someone else’s rights and liberties.

In a Meet the Press interview on Sunday Sept. 20, 2015, GOP Presidential hopeful had this to say about the possibility of a Muslim president:
For the life of me I don’t know why this argument keeps coming up. I thought most (intelligent) people had this discussion years ago. But it seems that a certain holy roller in Kentucky has brought it back to the top of the dung heap – at least on Facebook.

As I was leaving work the other day, I saw I guy carrying gas can and walking down the interstate entrance ramp. I pulled over and offered him a ride to his car. He said, “Hey thanks! You must be a Christian man!” If you’ve read any of my posts you already know that isn’t […]
