It’s quite a trifecta coming from the Supreme Court today.
By now EVERYONE already knows that the SCOTUS has (somewhat) upheld the Muslim ban. You can paint the outhouse magenta, but it is still an outhouse. Calling it a travel ban is a big can of paint.
And by now many of us heard that indeed public money can go to churches, you know, for secular purposes like playground surfacing. Slippery meets slope.
And of course we know that at least four members of the Supreme Court agreed to hear a case about the religious freedom of bakers to discriminate against the ‘mos. It’s not scriptural, but it seems that there is a ninth Beatitude that only Y’all Qaeda knows about: Blessed are the bakers for they shall deny anyone they want from licking the bowl.
Just venting and somewhat in shock. As a blogger who cut his teeth on the First Amendment in the era of Chimpy, today is about as bad as it gets.
