The My Little Pony Killer: I would have told him to take his butt back to 4chan.



What the fark did you just farking say about me, you little biatch? I'll have you know I graduated top of my class in the Navy Seals, and I've been involved in numerous secret raids on Al-Quaeda, and I have over 300 confirmed kills. I am trained in gorilla warfare and I'm the top sniper in the entire US armed forces. You are nothing to me but just another target. I will wipe you the fark out with precision the likes of which has never been seen before on this Earth, mark my farking words. You think you can get away with saying that shiat to me over the Internet? Think again, farker. As we speak, I am contacting my secret network of spies across the USA and your IP is being traced right now so you better prepare for the storm, maggot. The storm that wipes out the pathetic thing you call your life. You're farking dead, kid. I can be anywhere, anytime, and I can kill you in over seven hundred ways, and that's just with my bare hands. Not only am I extensively trained in unarmed combat, but I have access to the entire arsenal of the United States Marine Core and I will use it to its full extent to wipe your miserable ass off the face of the continent, you little shiat. If only you could have known what unholy retribution your little "clever" comment was about to bring down upon you, maybe you would have held your farking tongue. But you couldn't, you didn't, and now you're gonna pay the price, you goddamn idiot. I will shiat fury all over you and you will drown in it. You're farking dead, kiddo. Happy Easter.

I don't see this law surviving a legal challenge. As far as I'm aware, and IANAL, it's been caselaw that you can practice your religion, as long as said practice does not otherwise commit a crime.

I could found a Aztec/Mayan/Mesoamerican bloodcult, but the sacrifices can't be real people. Or real animals, I think. This law would allow me to have a human sacrifice on the altar.

While I don't think anyone should be surprised that this cunning plan was not thought all the way through, it's amusing to note that the ultimate result of this law is to grant government a massive, broad new power: the power to determine what is and is not a "sincerely held religious belief".

Lawnchair: Yep, that. There are 9 Unitarian churches in Kentucky (okay, only 4 large enough to have full-time ministers), and I'm pretty sure all of them have at least one same-sex couple to marry as soon as this law is applicable.


Unitarians are weird.

I think one once had sex with me to get them to join their church. (I guess I give off that "lost soul" aroma)

Would have been less awkward if her boyfriend hadn't been in the other room, but he didn't seem to mind... so.... yay Unitarians?

The funny thing is, I've already heard of a minister or two, and more than a few gay couples, in Louisville who are going to cite this very law in the course of applying for marriage licenses and marrying.

The state legislature set its own bar for overcoming this law, in the law itself, as strict scrutiny. The state now must without exception show compelling interest  and least-restrictive means in disallowing gay marriage, if the minister and couple involved have a sincerely-held religious belief they should be allowed to be married. Of course, knowing the yahoos who got this law passed, the state will try to argue it's not a sincerely-held religious belief which is a whole different ballgame in the courts as it turns to a free exercise issue and therefore strict scrutiny applies by default.
