Say “no” to preferential treatment of Christians

I have an idea for an initiative, and I was hoping some qualified attorney in my audience might be willing to help me draft the text. The idea is simple: I would like to amend RCW Chapter 49.60 to make it legal to discriminate in housing, employment, lending and insurance… against Christians.

As a Jew, I find the so-called “Christian lifestyle” offensive, and contrary to the teachings of the Torah. The Lord commanded Moses, “Thou shalt have no other gods before me,” and yet the Christians not only worship that Jesus guy, they’re constantly praying to Saint This, or Saint That, and the Blessed Virgin Mary of Whatever. I mean… what the hell is up with that?

That savior-on-a-stick symbolism is kind of gross, holy communion seems downright unsanitary, and transubstantiation? Don’t get me started — the whole eating your god thing just weirds me out. But then, what do you expect from a religion in which the end of the world is considered a good thing?

And then there’s all that pork. That’s just plain wrong. Except for bacon, which is delicious… and of course Chinese food. Anything in a Chinese restaurant is kosher.

The point is, I’m an American, and thus it is my right to be intolerant of all those who are different from me or who challenge my preconceptions or who make me feel uncomfortable in any way. Christianity is wrong; the Torah says so. And so I certainly wouldn’t want a Christian teaching my children or coaching their sports teams… or having anal sex with that nice gay man who lives next door.

Now I know what some of you may be thinking: discriminating against Christians is not “politically correct.” But if we let Christians take out mortgages or pay insurance premiums, we’re just heading down that slippery road towards normalizing their disgusting behavior. Next thing you know they’ll be putting Christmas trees in the public square, or singing Christmas carols in the public schools, or going door to door, recruiting our children to join their freakish, cannibalistic cult.

Don’t get me wrong. I love Christians. Especially the shiksas. In fact, I love them so much that I want to change them, by helping them abandon their abhorrent lifestyle. And change they can, for unlike race or gender or sexual orientation, Christianity is a choice. After all, I don’t know any ex-homosexuals… but I know a helluva lot of ex-Catholics.

Clearly, our arrogant legislators don’t agree with my anti-Christian stance, but this is a Democracy, and thus we the people deserve the right to vote on whether Christians should be denied their rights. So please contribute to my initiative campaign, and join me in saying no to preferential treatment, no to quotas, and no to church weddings.

    Richard Pope spews:

    If Reverendum 65 makes it to the ballot, and the people vote to reject the law, David Goldstein will deserve a lot of the credit for such an achievement. Goldstein has changed the fight from whether or not sexual orientation should be a category protected against discrimination, to whether or not Christians should be allowed freedom of religion and protection from discrimination.

    This matter certainly didn’t start off as anti-Christian fight. Reverendum Hutcherson mainly had the backing of a group of largely independent pastors. Some of them were totally unassociated with a larger denomination (such as Hutcherson), or belonged to highly autonomous denominations (such as Joe Fuiten of the Cedar Park Assembly of God).

    Many organized Christian denominations were in support of HB 2661 — such as the Episcopalians, United Methodists, Evangelical Lutherans, and so on. The state’s two largest Christian denominations — the Roman Catholics and the Latter Day Saints — almost never take official positions on political matters, and have not done so either way in the case of HB 2661.

    Goldstein has now turned this whole matter into a religious dispute, by attacking the religion of HB 2661 opponents. Goldstein has turned this into a struggle between gay rights supporters and “Christians” — even though the anti-HB 2661 pastors represent a decided minority of Christians in Washington.

    Goldstein started out with many weeks of increasing levels of rhetoric and drivel. Then he got things into higher gear by urging videotaping of church services and reporting churches to various government authorities.

    Goldstein’s fans acted on this message, and videotaped many services last Sunday May 21, 2006. The results of this, and more anti-Christian commentary, were posted on many liberal blogs.

    Then some Goldstein fan came up with the innovative idea of saying that Reverendum Hutcherson was violating RCW 42.17.130, since his services are held on facilities rented from the Lake Washington School District (i.e. Lake Washington High School gymnasium). Never mind that public facilities are historically rented out for political purposes all the time, including Democrat and Republican caucuses and conventions, party meetings and campaign rallies, and even Darcy Burner fundraising dinners.

    When some leftist administrator at LWSD wrote Reverendum Hutcherson and told him his church couldn’t collect signatures, etc. because of RCW 42.17.130, Goldstein and his allies were beside themselves with broad-faced shit-eating grins. They triumphally posted the LWSD letter on numerous blogs, harped on Christians being called to the table from breaking the law, and even predicted that they could get the signatures thrown out in court because of this.

    The level of hypocrisy by the Goldstein-ites is truly amazing. For example, Andrew Villeneuve, who runs Northwest Progressive Institute Blog, was beside himself with glee over the LWSD letter. Never mind the fact that Villeneuve is an officer in the 45th District Democrats. And where did the 45th District Dems hold their caucus on April 22, 2006? Redmond High School, a LWSD institution from which Villeneuve recently graduated. And what did this caucus include? Campaigning by and for Democrat candidates — the same conduct that is mentioned in RCW 42.17.130 (along with ballot proposition pro/con work). However, Villeneuve didn’t mention a word about his Democrat group recently “getting away” with the same kind of conduct that LWSD wanted to prohibit for Reverendum Hutcherson.

    Fortunately, the leftist administrators at LWSD were quickly told by state officials that their novel interpretation of RCW 42.17.130 was just plain wrong. LWSD rescinded its threatening letter the very next day. But you didn’t see Goldstein or any of his allies report THAT STORY, now did you?

    Instead, Goldstein proposes an initiative to make it legal to discriminate against Christians as a specific religious group. Mind you — Goldstein isn’t proposing to make all religious discrimination legal, only that directed against Christians. It would still be illegal, under Goldstein’s proposal to discriminate against Jews or atheists, or to discriminate in favor of Christians.

    This is quite different than simply not approving HB 2661. The law before HB 2661 didn’t cover discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation at all. It was just as okay to discriminate, for example, in favor of gays as it was to discriminate against gays. Never mind the relative lack of discrimination against gays, versus the larger problem of religious discrimination (including the recent efforts of Goldstein and his allies).

    Goldstein may intend his latest proposal to simply be satire (although he does not explicitly say this). But it comes against the backdrop of a lot of anti-Christian statements by Goldstein and his allies, as well as actual threats of discrimination against Christians opposed to Goldstein’s political positions. If someone were, for example, to propose making it legal to discriminate against Jews, even if expressly stated that it was purely satirical, Goldstein would be all over this outrageous “anti-Semitism” in the blink of an eye.

    In fact, Goldstein likes to call any political opponent “anti-Semitic”, if he can find a perceived opening. Recently, Mike McGavick wrote an editorial, in which he condemned the Iranian government for being anti-Semitics, and cited specific examples of anti-Jewish statements and actions by the Iranian leadership. Goldstein’s response to McGavick’s article was to accuse McGavick of glorifying Nazism!

    Anyway, Goldstein deserves a lot of credit for helping energize the R-65 signature gathering efforts. R-65 still may not make it to the ballot, but it would have almost certainly been dead without Goldstein’s constant inspiration.

    If R-65 does qualify for the ballot, it will be interesting to see how far Goldstein goes with his anti-Christian rantings and ravings. Goldstein may very well prove to be a public embarassment to the many Christian (and Jewish) leaders who actually support the HB 2661 gay rights law.

    Goldy,
    I’m truly sorry your school is being closed. Personally I think every school should remain open and class size reduced. If the public every saw the “management’s” salaries that are considering the school closures there would be an even bigger hue and cry. I truly am sorry. I rarely agree with your politics (it does happen though) but when it comes to kids whatever is best for them I am for.

    So please don’t take my above rant wrong. I am 100% for keeping schools open but I couldn’t help pointing out the irony of your latest posts.

    What organizations in the US give the most to charity? Look it up oh ye of the un-informed. Why do you think churches pass the hat, so to say. After paying salary and ops costs the rest goes to helping the needy in the community and within the congregation. Education scholarships, rent subsidies for people between jobs, food handouts for low income members and communtiy. Wow it almost sounds like a liberal Utopia. It is constantly what you libs are working for in the government but Churches, for the most part, do it so much better and without a mandate.

    My Dearest Cyniclown,

    Goldy’s post was “TONGUE IN CHEEK SATIRE”. Only a moronic asshole with the sense of humor the size of a gnat would not understand that or make a comment disparaging his very funny musing.

    What is really funny, hilarious even, is the look that will be on your face this coming November. When the pendulum swings back to the left in a big way. The Congress and the Senate will be placed back into the hands of Democrats and your villiage idiot of a President can spend the last two years of his impotent presidency sitting on his ass, knowing of course, that God himself ordained his very presidency. But as we all know, his “talking point” will be that the terrorists and Jews have subverted him, by controlling the media, and foisted this change upon him.

    Never once will he or his cronies look back and see the mistakes of their actions. Never once will they give the American public credit for seeing the evil,the corruption and the unadulterated power mongering that has become the hallmark of the Republican party. No, they will blame everyone but themselves.

    One last thing before I go, Fuck you, Cyniclown.

    I am weary of your endlessly mindless blather. I am worn out by your nasty, unkind, undeserved criticism of any idea, or anyone, that happens to not agree with your Christian, Ultra Conservative RightWing agenda. So just go fuck yourself and the horse you rode in on.

    If you don’t like the change that is coming, perhaps you can move to Vatican city. There the religious right is the rule and law of the land. You will be very happy there. (Word of advice, don’t bend over in church). Again, go fuck yourself. You just keep proving yourself to be the ignorant fool that you are, and frankly, it was entertaining for a while, but now it is just annoying.

    My take is there are sincere people who are Christian in their Catholic Church. Donna, you can skip this part. The Holy Word of God will singe your eyes!

    John 10: 11-18 “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. The hired hand, who is not the shepherd and does not own the sheep, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and runs away — and the wolf snatches them and scatters them.The hired hand runs away because a hired hand does not care for the sheep. I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd. For this reason the Father loves me, because I lay down my life in order to take it up again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of my own accord. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it up again. I have received this command from my Father.” Jesus has people of all denominations that believe that He is the Son of God.

    So when LeftTurd sez what he sez, he demonstrate absolute ignorance of the Bible. I’ll guess his parents never read bedtime stories from the Bible. I’ll guess his parents didn’t have a Bible in the house! I’ll guess LeftTurd is a repressed Christian. Hehehe

    But I say to LeftTurd, go to the local library and open the Bible New Testament to Romans 1:18-32. Come back and tell me what it says.

    Catholics are THE ANTI-CONSERVATIVE!

    We here at godhatesfags.com cannot condone the Catholic animal! Catholics are Satan’s right hand! God Bless George W. Bush!

    We use the word “fag” as a contraction of the word “faggot.” A “fag” is a firebrand. A “fag” is used for kindling — it fuels fire. “Fag” is a metaphor used in the Bible, for example, in Amos 4:11 (where it is translated “firebrand” in the KJV). Just as a “fag” fuels the fires of nature, so does a sodomite fuel the fires of God’s wrath. We do not use the word “fag” in order to engage in childish name-calling. Rather, we use it because it is a metaphor chosen by the Holy Ghost to describe a group of people who BURN in their lust one toward another, and who FUEL God’s wrath!

    Hail Jesus!

    As I, the prime example of Good Conservative Values have said before on Pope John Paul II’s watch, the Catholic Church became the church of the holy pedophiles. And sodomite feces replaced the wafer for their communion service. And Sodomite semen replaced the wine that the Pope drinks.

    I am a Bush Conservative , and I hate Catholics and the Fags that evil religion creates!

    When I reflect on my years in the Hitler Youth, and later as a member of the Luftwaffenhelfer, and on to my time in Austria working in the Nazi Army working the anti-tank defences in the Hungarian border, even to the days as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, where I shuffled the abuse of children under bureaucratic red tape, and to this day…

    I must say to the Christians, and the Jews and the Muslims: WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU THINKING????

    It is all complete bullshit. Why do you hide your humanity behind mythology and hatred? There are many great moral teachers, but not a one of them is worth killing a gnat over. Or using your warped interpretations of their teachings to claim moral high ground, or to discriminate against others.

    Which part of LeftTurn’s comments do you disagree with…

    …the part about the Church covering up for child molester priests, or the part about the Church covering up for child molester priests? -Commentby rujax206— 5/26/06@ 5:08 pm

    Ahh, hit and run Lazy Man, fondly {snicker: like one would refer to a roach fondly…but I digress} known as rugrat, do you ever get tired of being shown as the incompetent koolais swilling boob you are?

    Excerpts…
    According to a survey by the Washington Post, over the last four decades, less than 1.5 percent of the estimated 60,000 or more men who have served in the Catholic clergy have been accused of child sexual abuse. According to a survey by the New York Times, 1.8 percent of all priests ordained from 1950 to 2001 have been accused of child sexual abuse. Thomas Kane, author of Priests are People Too, estimates that between 1 and 1.5 percent of priests have had charges made against them. Of contemporary priests, the Associated Press found that approximately two-thirds of 1 percent of priests have charges pending against them.
    Almost all the priests who abuse children are homosexuals. Dr. Thomas Plante, a psychologist at Santa Clara University, found that “80 to 90% of all priests who in fact abuse minors have sexually engaged with adolescent boys, not prepubescent children. Thus, the teenager is more at risk than the young altar boy or girls of any age.”
    In the spring of 2002, when the sexual abuse scandal in the Catholic Church was receiving unprecedented attention, the Christian Science Monitor reported on the results of national surveys by Christian Ministry Resources. The conclusion:
    “Despite headlines focusing on the priest pedophile problem in the Roman Catholic Church, most American churches being hit with child sexual-abuse allegations are Protestant, and most of the alleged abusers are not clergy or staff, but church volunteers.”
    Finally, in the authoritative work by Penn State professor Philip Jenkins, Pedophiles and Priests, it was determined that between .2 and 1.7 percent of priests are pedophiles. The figure among the Protestant clergy ranges between 2 and 3 percent.
    Rabbi Arthur Gross Schaefer is a professor of law and ethics at Loyola Marymount University. It is his belief that sexual abuse among rabbis approximates that found among the Protestant clergy. According to one study, 73 percent of women rabbis report instances of sexual harassment. “Sadly,” Rabbi Schaefer concludes, “our community’s reactions up to this point have been often based on keeping things quiet in an attempt to do ‘damage control.’ Fear of lawsuits and bad publicity have dictated an atmosphere of hushed voices and outrage against those who dare to break ranks by speaking out.”
    Rabbi Joel Meyers, executive vice president of the Conservative Rabbinical Assembly, reports that 30 percent of rabbis who changed positions in 2000 did so involuntarily, and that sexual abuse was a factor in many instances. [xxiv] The Awareness Center devotes an entire website to “Clergy Abuse: Rabbis, Cantors & Other Trusted Officials.” It is a detailed and frank look at the problem of sexual abuse by rabbis. [xxv]
    The problem of sexual abuse in the Jehovah’s Witnesses is evident among church elders but most of the abuse comes from congregation members. “The victims who have stepped forward are mostly girls and young women,” writes Laurie Goodstein in the New York Times, “and many accusations involve incest.” There is a victims support group available, “silentlambs,” that has collected more than 5,000 Witnesses contending that the church mishandled child sexual abuse.
    According to one study, .2 percent of athletic coaches nationwide have a criminal record of some sort of sexual offense. This translates to about 6,000 coaches in the U.S. who have been tried and found guilty of sexual offense against children. It is not known how many more offenders have escaped the reach of law enforcement.
    Between 3 and 12 percent of psychologists have had sexual contact with their clients. While today virtually every state considers sexual contact with a client as worthy of revoking a psychologist’s license, as recently as 1987 only 31 percent of state licensing boards considered sexual relations between a psychologist and his or her patient grounds for license revocation. What makes this statistic so interesting is that many bishops in the 1980s took the advice of psychologists in handling molesting priests.
    The American Medical Association found in 1986 that one in four girls, and one in eight boys, are sexually abused in or out of school before the age of 18. Two years later, a study included in The Handbook on Sexual Abuse of Children, reported that one in four girls, and one in six boys, is sexually abused by age 18. It was reported in 1991 that 17.7 percent of males who graduated from high school, and 82.2 percent of females, reported sexual harassment by faculty or staff during their years in school. Fully 13.5 percent said they had sexual intercourse with their teacher.
    In New York City alone, at least one child is sexually abused by a school employee every day. One study concluded that more than 60 percent of employees accused of sexual abuse in the New York City schools were transferred to desk jobs at district offices located inside the schools. Most of these teachers are tenured and 40 percent of those transferred are repeat offenders. They call it “passing the garbage” in the schools. One reason why this exists is due to efforts by the United Federation of Teachers to protect teachers at the expense of children. [xxxi] Another is the fact that teachers accused of sexual misconduct cannot be fired under New York State law. [xxxii]
    One of the nation’s foremost authorities on the subject of the sexual abuse of minors in public schools is Hofstra University professor Charol Shakeshaft. In 1994, Shakeshaft and Audrey Cohan did a study of 225 cases of educator sexual abuse in New York City. Their findings are astounding.
    All of the accused admitted sexual abuse of a student, but none of the abusers was reported to the authorities, and only 1 percent lost their license to teach. Only 35 percent suffered negative consequences of any kind, and 39 percent chose to leave their school district, most with positive recommendations. Some were even given an early retirement package.
    Moving molesting teachers from school district to school district is a common phenomenon. And in only 1 percent of the cases do superintendents notify the new school district. According to Diana Jean Schemo, the term “passing the trash” is the preferred jargon among educators.
    Shakeshaft has also determined that 15 percent of all students have experienced some kind of sexual misconduct by a teacher between kindergarten and 12th grade; the behaviors range from touching to forced penetration. She and Cohan also found that up to 5 percent of teachers sexually abuse children. Shakeshaft will soon be ready to release the findings of a vast study undertaken for the Planning and Evaluation Service Office of the Undersecretary, U.S. Department of Education, titled, “Educator Sexual Misconduct with Students: A Synthesis of Existing Literature on Prevalence in Connection with the Design of a National Analysis.”

    This is just too good:

    Yesterday, a guy was having trouble with his Kimber 1911. It was firing two rounds with every trigger pull. After figuring out what was wrong, we started talking about politics and he said something that floored me.

    “George Bush is more dangerous to America than Osama bin Laden. He should be impeached, indicted, tried, convicted and hung.” Beyond the fact that he was very specific about the fact that Bush would have to be impeached before he can be indicted, he made this pronouncement in a gunshop with six guys standing around and I know I was the only one that had ever voted for a Democrat. This pronouncement was not greeted with silence or derision. Everybody agreed this is what needed to happen. I was encouraged today; Bush is not going to get away with it.

    I’m going to bring in ten copies of Glenn Greenwald’s “How would a Patriot Act?” as soon as I get them. Bush has lost the guys at the gun shop and unless he makes the NSA scandal disappear, he will never get them back. They might shoot ‘em, but they will never support him again.

    In Fogarty’s letter, she states: the guidelines do not restrict the ability of third parties to promote or oppose ballot measures in that part of a school governed by a rental agreement during the time of the rental.

    I know that when attending caucuses at local schools we were told not to carry our signs of support with the messages visible while on the school grounds as we walked to the gym. At one school, there is a small courtyard in front of a busy street. We weren’t to display political messages there, either. Even though once we got to the sidewalk, about thirty feet, we could.

    So, the matter isn’t as cut-and-dried as you are trying to make out.

    I beg to disagree. The Lake Washington School District has backed away from their blatant discrimination and withdrawn its threatening letter of May 24, 2006 that it wrote to Reverendum Hutcherson.

    Look at Eli Sanders posting in The Stranger blog at 5:50 p.m. on May 25, 2006. He includes the full text of the letter of retraction from the Lake Washington School District:

    Dear Church Leader,

    We are following up on the Lake Washington School District’s letter to you dated May 24, 2006, concerning use of school facilities for certain political activities under RCW 42.17.130.

    Since we wrote to you, we have contacted the Public Disclosure Commission, the state agency charged with enforcing the guidelines governing the use of school facilities in campaigns. The prohibitions we described in the letter apply to the district’s use of school facilities, but according to the PDC, the guidelines do not restrict the ability of third parties to promote or oppose ballot measures in that part of a school governed by a rental agreement during the time of the rental. Thus, the district is retracting its May 24th letter.

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

    You sinners new to read a new book and repent,for being a Liberal is a sin in God’s eyes.

    New York Times bestselling author Ann Coulter. In this completely original and thoroughly controversial work, Coulter writes, “Liberals love to boast that they are not ‘religious,’ which is what one would expect to hear from the state-sanctioned religion. Of course liberalism is a religion. It has its own cosmology, its own miracles, its own beliefs in the supernatural, its own churches, its own high priests, its own saints, its own total worldview, and its own explanation of the existence of the universe. In other words, liberalism contains all the attributes of what is generally known as ‘religion.’ ”
    GODLESS throws open the doors of the “Church of Liberalism.”

    I’m at least willing to give Richard credit for putting his brain in gear, collecting information and trying to make cogent arguments for his side of the equation. I haven’t seen a shred of evidence to the effect that Ken Hutcherson is anything more than a has-been athlete who fell into the country-revival preaching racket and continues to spout malarkey trying to convince anyone, including himself, that he’s important.

  84. 103

    Richard Pope spews:

    State law — Chapter 49.60 RCW — already prohibits discrimination on the basis of religion. It does not currently prohibit such discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation — since HB 2661 isn’t effective yet (and won’t become effective unless approved by the voters in November 2006, if Reverendum 65 qualifies for the ballot).

    Religious discrimination is still a major problem in the State of Washington. For example, the Lake Washington School District attempted religious discrimination against Reverendum Hutcherson just this week. They only backed down after being assertively denounced and having their misdeeds extensively publicized.

    By contrast, there just aren’t any documented problems with discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in this state. If sexual orientation is added to Chapter 49.60 RCW, this will simply divert attention from a real problem that still exists, in spite of being legally prohibited for several decades — namely religious discrimination.

  85. 104

    Richard Pope spews:

    The Lake Washington School District already tried discrimination against Christians. Witness the letter from Deputy Superintendent Janene Fogard on May 24, 2006, where they told Reverendum Ken Hutcherson and the Antioch Bible Church that they could not gather signatures for R-65 on school district property that they were renting at Lake Washington High School.

    Fogard cited RCW 42.17.130, which purportedly prohibits use of government agency facilities to assist political candidates or to promote or oppose ballot measures.

    Only problem is that RCW 42.17.130 has never been interpreted that way before, regarding people who rent public facilities. For example, the Lake Washington School District rented Redmond High School to the 45th District Democrats on April 22, 2006 for a party caucus. At the caucus, numerous Democrat candidates campaigned, either in person or by surrogates, gave speeches and distributed literature.

    So the Lake Washington School District was discriminating against Hutcherson and his church solely based upon their religious beliefs, and not because of a mistaken interpretation of RCW 42.17.130.

    Fortunately, I have taken considerable measures over the last 24 hours to figuratively rip Fogard and the Lake Washington School District administration a new anus. As of late Thursday afternoon, Fogard changed her position, retracted her letter of May 24, 2006. and decided that RCW 42.17.130 allows anyone who rents public facilities to engage in whatever kind of political activity they damn well please.

Hence his cheerful pompadoured headwag of victory. But, Senor Cynicola, the East Germans were escaping to Socialist Democracies, not the cheap labor capitalist hell of the US and Mexico. These Socialist Democracies were also described as Stalinist by the conservatives.

    Commentby GORDITOS DE LOS ALBERTO— 5/26/06@ 11:58 am
    Yaw Gorditos De Los Alberto they were escaping into the Socialist Democracies of Western Europe and not swimming the Atlantic Ocean. (No rivers between the two continents) Their reasons probability is not the same as those crossing the Rio Grande today into the United States. Unfortunately they were used for cheap labor until they got a visa to enter this country. Today some of the wandering emigrants entering Europe from Africa and settling into France find no jobs and treated like third class citizens. That is not the case in the United States and they receive respect for who they are and what they contribute to this society. Now in this country street we find demonstrators who come from Central America and Mexico promoting this type of Government like France, Cuba, Russia, and other Democrat Socialist governments. The present Democrat Party is being taken over by these types of people. “Where are the real Democrats?” Read more below and you might feel at home.
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D.....of_America

    Democratic Socialists of America (DSA) is a socialist organization in the United States and the principal U.S. affiliate of the Socialist International, a federation of socialist, social democratic and labor parties and organizations.
    DSA was formed in 1983 by a merger of Democratic Socialist Organizing Committee, the largest remnant of the defunct Socialist Party of America led by Michael Harrington, and the New American Movement, a coalition of writers and intellectuals with roots in both the New Left movements of the 1960s and the more traditional parties of the Old Left.
    Originally DSA, like DSOC before it, was very strongly associated with Michael Harrington’s position that “the left wing of realism is found today in the Democratic Party”. In its early years DSA backed relatively mainstream liberals such as Walter Mondale in spite of the dramatic growth of a left wing associated with Jesse Jackson and the Rainbow Coalition, which the DSA largely ignored.[1] The DSA’s position has since evolved; its present official position is that “Democratic socialists reject an either-or approach to electoral coalition building, focused solely on a new party or on realignment within the Democratic Party.”[2] In 2000, the DSA took no official position on the presidential election, with several prominent DSA members backing Green Party presidential candidate Ralph Nader. In 2004, the organization backed John Kerry after he won the Democratic nomination. The only resolution on upcoming elections at the DSA’s 2005 convention focused on Bernie Sanders’ independent campaign for the U.S. Senate.

    I took Goldy’s post as satire.

    Pope obviously has research skills. Perhaps he should apply these skills to finding the documentation of discrimination in the cities of our state that already declare that it’s illegal to fire someone just because of their sexual orientation. Or he could look at FBI statistics on hate crimes. The fact is that Pope generally only researches things in ways that help him spin his latest grandstandings. What a dope.

    Or he could look at the case in Pierce County where a judge ruled that under our states laws a school was within the state’s law to fire a teacher just because he is gay.

    Many conservatives, liberals, religious people, straight people, young people and old people think there ought to be a law in our state that declares that it is illegal to fire someone just because they are gay. Just like it is already illegal to fire someone based on their religion, marital status, gender, race and a few other things.

    The backers of R 65 think it ought to be OK for the majority of people to decide whether they want to condone discrimination of people who happen to be a minority. By that way of thinking, we could all decide to make it legal to fire a Mormon, just because they practice a particular faith that a majority of people don’t.

    Nobody I know thinks we ought to make it legal again to fire someone because of their religion.

    A few vocal preachers with a particular religious calling preach that we ought to make it legal to fire someone just because they are gay and argue that if we don’t, that our government would be “normalizing” gay people. The fact is that in our state it is quite normal for gay people to live here, and has been for a very long time.

    I don’t think voters in Washington want to normalize the imposition of certain religious views on our laws. And it seems crazy to me that people in our state would want to make it legal to fire someone just because they are gay.

    The promotion of the idea that our state legislature has recently enabled a wave of cross dressing teachers on our public schools, and that if we don’t put Tim Eyman’s stupid referendum on the ballot there is nothing we can do to prevent this terror, may qualify as reason enough for some idiots to make this a big ass deal.

    Don’t you all find it funny that in the heart of one of the most liberal areas of the U.S. we find the liberals struggling the hardest? Substandard education system, up until recently a very high unemployment rate, businesses trampling each other to leave the state, failing healthcare system, failing social service system, budget woes.

    If the liberal and democrat system was all that and a bag of chips our area should be the glowing example to the rest of the country. But instead we are the proverbial red-headed step child along with parts of OR, and CA. You think there’s a message there?
