Republican Theocrats (and I know that is redundant) want to A) force women to become mothers against their will (incubators, as all the so-called heartbeat bills essentially make them), and 2) deny people who want to become parents the ability to do so because of their sexual orientation:
Details: Former President Obama banned adoption and foster-care agencies from receiving federal funding if they refused to work with same-sex couples. Religious organizations have consistently bristled at that policy, arguing that they’re being forced to contradict their beliefs.
- Administration officials said the White House is weighing two options: either rescinding those rules altogether, or adding an explicit exemption for religious organizations.
- The debate is mainly about which approach would hold up better in court, the officials said. A religious exemption seems to have the upper hand for now, but that could change.
It’s the perfect storm of hatred.
The big picture: In just 2 years, the Trump administration has worked to undo a major chunk of the protections the LGBTQ community secured under President Obama.
But wait! There’s more!
The Department of Health and Human Services proposed rolling back protections for transgender people established under the Affordable Care Act on Friday.
The Department of Housing and Urban Development proposed a change to its Equal Access Rule on Wednesday that would weaken Obama-era protections for homeless transgender people, allowing HUD-funded shelters to deny people admission on religious grounds or force transgender people to share bathrooms and sleeping quarters.
You don’t have to look very hard to see the game plan here: everyone except for straight (white? sure, it’s subtext) Xristian men are targeted, and little by little, these other communities are being made into The Other, less than human and not deserving of Human Rights or respect.
When Possum Hollar’s appetite for hating on the Blahs and the Browns is exhausted, the ‘mos will be next in the rifle scope.
Bank on it.
