Religious groups want exemption from
hiring LGBT after Hobby Lobby ruling

Washington Times, by Jennifer Pompi

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/4/2014 11:29:12 AM

Following the recent Hobby Lobby ruling, a group of religious leaders wrote a letter to President Obama on Tuesday asking to be exempt from a pending executive order that would prohibit federal contractors from discriminating against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people in hiring practices, reported The Atlantic. “We are asking that an extension of protection for one group not come at the expense of faith communities whose religious identity and beliefs motivate them to serve those in need,” the letter says, according to The Atlantic. The letter comes after Monday’s Supreme Court ruling, known as Hobby Lobby, that closely

Comments:
That will certainly enrage the radical leftists!! You know for certain that those radicals on the Supreme Court will never allow this. With the exception of Alito, Thomas and Scalia (hopefully) you never know what direction the others would go.

If they don´t get the exemption ... won´t the government be guilty of discrimination against certain religions in awarding contracts?

Is there a space on the application that asks about sexual orientation? If any person, gay or straight, spends any time at work discussing their sexual encounters, an employer can fire at will. Leave me alone and let me do my work.

I don´t believe the employer or the employee have a right to make an issue of sexual orientation.

If the employee brings that to the work environment no matter what that orientation is it becomes an issue and you should have a right to fire them. Hiring should be about qualifications to do a job. It shouldn´t be a religious test. What´s next do we try to run them out of our neighborhoods?

#4: I agree. Fraternizing and overt sexual behavior in the workplace is always a detriment to any company/organization, but who cares what anyone does in their own home?

on the other hand,
I´ve seen company HR departments that had were heavily populated by the homosexual deviants and their sympathizers, who formed what amounted to a "gay Mafia", and from that point on acted to support and recruit more like themselves and push out or keep out any and all who were felt to not be "with the program". Given their roles and position within the organization, it wasn´t hard to do. And I´ve seen how this damaged the companies, their managers, stockholder, employees, and customers.
It may not be politically correct to say it, but I´m fully in favor of keeping the sexual deviants far away from decent people.

#6, I have seen exactly the same thing. All we have to do is substitute the word "Christian".
It seems people want to be around those they like and identify with. Imagine that.

Illegals--But He Can Decide
How to ´Implement the Laws´
Cybercast News Service, by Brittany M. Hughes    Original Article

House Democratic Whip Steny Hoyer (D-MD) said that President Obama “can’t legalize” the illegal aliens in the United States, but then added that the president “can implement the laws as he believes they should be implemented." "Article 1 of the U.S. Constitution states that Congress has the power to make laws governing naturalization. Given this, does President Obama have the unilateral power to legalize illegal aliens?" CNSNews.com asked Hoyer. “I don’t think he does,” Hoyer responded, “and I don’t think that’s what he’s going to do. You’re right. He can’t legalize them.” “What the president can in fact do, however, is implement the

Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Tuesday urged President Barack Obama to provide “timely and necessary information” to states about the placement of unaccompanied illegal minors after it was discovered that the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) sent 245 unaccompanied minors to Indiana in January, but did not notify the state until seven months later. “In Indiana last week, we learned from media reports that more than two hundred unaccompanied children had been placed by the federal government with sponsors in our state,” said Pence in a letter to the president. “Only after these media reports were published did the state

The Republican head of the Benghazi Select Committee warned Tuesday that no witnesses would be off limits in its upcoming probe and that he would consider going to court, if necessary, to compel testimony. "I can´t skip over a witness that I think we ought to talk to simply because there is an assertion of either privilege or immunity,"Chairman Trey Gowdy of South Carolina told Fox News in an exclusive interview.

Do not eat or drink in front of Muslims, and learn more about their religion. That’s the directive that has gone out to active duty military personnel at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences, a Department of Defense medical and graduate school in Bethesda, Md. The brigade commander sent an email to military personnel at the facility last month – just before the start of Ramadan – advising them to show respect to Muslim colleagues. “This is a period of great personal restraint and commitment in addition to renewed focus on worship,” Brigade Commander Col. Kevin Glasz wrote. “I’d like to

Krauthammer: Impending White
House Amnesty Order ‘Would Be
An Impeachable Offense’
Daily Caller, by Brendan Bordelon    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/29/2014 9:07:58 PM     Post Reply
Like many on the right, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer is politically opposed to impeaching President Barack Obama. But on Tuesday, he declared that legally, the rumored White House order granting amnesty to as many as 6 million illegal immigrants “would be an impeachable offense” — and Obama’s talk of impeachment may be a way to preempt that pushback. Krauthammer spoke with Fox News’s Bret Baier on a panel with The Hill’s A.B. Stoddard and Fox News contributor Juan Williams. The group discussed the impeachment buzz swirling around Washington, which most observers agree is being ginned up by Democrats eager for

GOP Leaders Revive
Democrats’ Amnesty Hopes

Democratic leaders are welcoming efforts by the House GOP leadership to amend a minor 2008 immigration bill, because it could revive the now-dormant, business-backed comprehensive immigration reform push. The House’s proposed change to the 2008 bill is “an opening for us to have a conference on our comprehensive immigration reform,” said Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. GOP leaders announced Tuesday they’re scheduling a Thursday vote on changes to the existing 2008 immigration law. For more than a month, President Barack Obama has blamed the law for his decision to allow more than 100,000 Central American migrants into the United States. The GOP’s base,

The Financial Times reports that a drop in ad sales at the New York Times caused the left-wing newspaper´s profits to collapse 54% in the second quarter of this year. The Times netted only $9.2 million this quarter compared to $20.1 million last year. A fall in advertising revenues and stepped-up investment in digital products outweighed rises in digital subscribers and circulation revenue at the New York Times, sending headline profit 54 per cent lower in the second quarter. Net income of $9.2m, or six cents a share, compared with $20.1m, or 13 cents a share, a year ago. Adjusted operating profit,

Nearly 70% of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama´s handling of illegal immigration, and a plurality oppose any emergency funding to address the border crisis, according to a new national poll. The Associated Press-GfK poll found that 68% disapprove of Obama on illegal immigration while only 31% approve. When asked if they "favor, oppose or neither favor nor oppose emergency spending by the federal government to improve living conditions for children currently being detained for crossing the border illegally and to allow deportation hearings for those children to proceed more quickly," 38% of respondents opposed while 32% favored authorizing emergency funds.

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) said in a statement Tuesday that House Speaker John Boehner’s border crisis working group’s legislation is a “surrender” to a “lawless president.” “The Obama Administration has openly declared its plan to implement a unilateral executive amnesty for 5–6 million more illegal immigrants,” Sessions said. He went on: This unlawful amnesty—urged on by congressional Democrats—would include work permits, taking jobs directly from millions of struggling American citizens. Any action Congress might consider to address the current border crisis would be futile should the President go forward with these lawless actions. Congress must speak out

90-day stay in D.C. gun case

A federal judge on Tuesday granted a 90-day stay in a ruling that upended the District’s ban on carrying handguns in public. The order issued by U.S. District Court Judge Frederick Scullin brings a temporary reprieve to D.C. officials, who were sent scurrying over the weekend to interpret the effects of the ruling that gutted the city’s restrictive gun laws. An order issued Saturday by the judge struck down the city’s ban on the carrying of guns in public as unconstitutional. While still struggling to comprehend the scope of the order, D.C. police ordered officers to stop arresting people for carrying legally

Retiring Senator Tom Harkin (D., Iowa) suggested that Senate Democrats might force House Republicans to return to the Capitol during the August recess in order to pass a border crisis bill. Harkin allowed that “we don’t have to have a supplemental exactly right now,” explaining that President Obama’s administration only needs some of the funding he requested before the end of the fiscal year. “Are [House Republicans] going to vote and then go home?” Harkin told National Review Online Monday evening when asked what happens if the House votes on its border crisis package on Thursday. “That puts us in a bit

A statement put out today by President Barack Obama on the occasion of a religious holiday is raising some eyebrows. The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease. In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from

Malaysian politician says that including dogs in opening ceremony was ´disrespectful to Malaysia and Muslims´. The Commonwealth Games, which opened last week in Glasgow, Scotland in the presence of the Queen, was, like all sporting events these days, ushered into existence to the accompaniment of a lavish and visually impressive opening ceremony. But amidst the dancing mechanical giants and gay kisses, the organizers also sought to celebrate Scottishness by having each team led out by Scottie dogs wearing tartan coats embroidered with the name of the team.

Illegal immigrants plan to picket the White House Monday afternoon, calling on fellow immigrant-rights advocacy groups to refuse to meet with the Obama administration until President Obama specifically includes illegal immigrants in any future meetings. “We are among the millions of people who will either benefit or be harmed by the decisions the President makes, and we are here to represent ourselves in any future negotiations,” said Rosi Carrasco, one of organizers, in a statement announcing the action. Billing themselves “undocumented immigrant leaders,” the organizers said they will erect a picket line to symbolize their demand. The groups are fighting

Geraldo Rivera hates it whenever any one around him refers to people illegally crossing the border as “illegals.” On Monday’s edition of Outnumbered he challenged FNC’s Ainsley Earhardt when she dared to use that phrase in his presence.

Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee angered his Facebook fans after endorsing Sen. Lamar Alexander against conservative state Representative Joe Carr last month. Carr has been endorsed by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham for the August 7th primary. And Carr has been relentlessly hammering Alexander for voting for the Senate´s amnesty bill even after law enforcement officials warned Alexander that it would lure more illegal immigrants from Central America. Nearly every one of close to 450 comments beneath Huckabee´s announcement on his Facebook page blasts Huckabee for supporting Alexander. One Huckabee fan said, "We

A leading drug policy researcher, David Murray, has a must-read piece up at the Hudson Institute website, "Comparing Marijuana and Alcohol: Seriously." Murray´s article is a devastating deconstruction of claims that marijuana is relatively safe, or at least safer than alcohol. And, as he points out, it thereby undermines much of the basis of the New York Times´s blithely irresponsible editorial endorsement of marijuana legalization. Read Murray´s whole piece. Here are highlights: It’s a remarkable weekend when one finds the Grey Lady arguing for state’s rights, and worrying huffily about arbitrary Presidential powers.

President Barack Obama is practically weepy at the thought of his daughter Malia going off to college, a milestone many months away that is already on his mind. Malia barely reached up to her father´s shoulders when they moved to the White House nearly six years ago with her mother, little sister and grandmother. At 16, she stands nearly as tall as her 6-foot-1 dad and is visiting college campuses in preparation for that bittersweet day in the fall of 2016 when she trades her White House bedroom for a dorm. She has been seen touring the University of California

Inside Hoboken’s combined junior-senior high school is a storage closet. Behind the locked door, some mothballed laptop computers are strewn among brown cardboard boxes. Others are stacked one atop another. Dozens more are stored on mobile computer carts, many of them on their last legs. That’s all that remains from a failed experiment to assign every student a laptop at Hoboken Junior Senior High School. It began five years ago with an unexpected windfall of stimulus money from Washington, D.C., and good intentions to help the district’s students,
