In before the US Supreme Court rules either 6-3 or 5-4 that the adoption agency's window sign is kosher.

... and that's the last time they ever seek services from Hitler Youths Adoption Agency.

To be fair, if Jesus had been adopted by decent Christian folk, he would have been spared a great deal of unnecessary distress. ✝

On the one hand, I'd love to see a media blitz around this to highlight the way we're regressing on Civil Rights. On the other hand, we're regressing on Civil Rights on so many fronts that also need our attention and our nation has been reduced to a 144 character attention span.

Funny.  The point of this idea was that they would be sticking it to the gays.  The fact that this couple looks like damn near every other person in Nashville even down to boots and flannels was not the face of the lawsuit they wanted.

This is what Fascists have in mind when they say "faith-based" organizations should do everything.

It's a start, but the agency wasn't able to report the nice Jewish family to the Inquisition.

Yet.

So.  How do you explain the ability to have private schools segregated along religious lines but not allowing a religious-based agency being able to make discriminations along religious lines?

Poe's Law (revised) now means that someone out there will actually believe that.

We get the sarcasm, of course, but we're Farkers and we are smart.

Oh, rubbish and twaddle.  There's tons of decent Christian folk around where I live.  Heck, my own mother was one.

The fact that YOU have a problem with fundamentalist nutjobs doesn't change that.  And, you know, they'd still be fundamentalist nutjobs if they were denied Christianity as a framework for it; they'd just pick The Nation or The Workers or Freedom or something.

I don't think the private schools get gov't money.  This agency does.

If you receive taxpayer money to provide a public service, you need to provide it to everyone. A privately-funded school can admit or deny anyone they choose.
 
2022-01-20 7:54:08 AM  
If your church uses money from its offering plate to hold a barbeque on church grounds then it is legal though an asshole move to have a no Jews allowed policy.

But if your effort is being paid by my tax dollars, then no religious discrimination.
Also those children are not church property. Saying kids must go to a Muslim family is a clear endorsement of a particular religion. It is discrimination against non-Muslims and denies some kids the chance to have a family.

They can, as long as the funds are not directly used for religious activity

That's probably going to change this summer, though.

Private schools can't discriminate if they take federal money.

I'm very fertile. I make babies first try, every single time. The article does not mention why they cannot conceive on their own. If it is him, I have a suggestion for her but I will need photos. She's reasonably cute but, I'd like to see her knees first.

This would be ugly and wrong if they were privately funded. But that they accept federal support? End them.
 
2022-01-20 8:03:10 AM  
Well that's utterly disgusting.

I'm flummoxed a bit in the thought of who hates the Jews. Why hate the Jews? It makes no sense. Welcome the Jews. That's my thought.

The organization was previously but is no longer an arm of the Holston Conference of the United Methodist Church.

Maybe it's a recent change, but the organization in question seems to disagree with that statement.  Wildly out of character for the UMC where I am, but, well, it's the South.  If the UMC has disavowed them, they probably should look into changing the name and updating the website.

The couple isn't suing the adoption agency.  They are suing the Tennessee Department of Children's Services.

Hint: there is a reason why there are Jewish Community Centers (JCC).
/When people are talking about a country club, I like to ask when they started allowing Jews.
//Hence JCC
///that JCC is for the people who were annoyed by the EP thing in the Trump thread.
