I remember having somewhat similar issues with United Way, when I worked for GM. I my case, I was contributing to BSA. I found out that any given organization gets a certain allocation from the general pool of money, determined by UWay Corporate. If you specify a charity/org, the money will go there, but the allocated amount from the pool is reduced by the amount of your contribution. Sleight of hand. Dishonest. Then, there are the actual percentages of contribution that make it to the destination organizations, i.e. not much. I stopped contributing more than a penny a paycheck, as GM required 100% participation to “look good.” We called it “employment tax.” You were hounded if you did not participate.

The next step down the stairway to perdition will be SCROTUS ruling these conservative churches will have to perform the “marriages” on demand. Our country is circling the bowl.

Marriage is a Sacrament (Sacred), NOT a “right,” civil or otherwise. It is well defined, historically.
Nothing is denied if folks want to enter a civil union. Make a contract and get it “blessed” by a judge, rather than a “priest.”.
Such a union is just not recognized by the church, but only by the gubmint.

Dearly beloved, we are gathered here together, under the eyes of God and this company to join this MAN and this WOMAN in Holy Matrimony.
Marriage is a sacrament, not a right.
God is weeping. There is nothing sacred about what was decided, yesterday.
"There is nothing sacred about what was decided, yesterday."
You're right, and you know why? Because this is America, and your religion can't be used to deprive your fellow American citizens of their civil rights.

Acehole Al. Here, in Lansing, MLK Boulevard is a place to stay away from if you are white…
Maybe we can ban that, too?
Perhaps, now I will be able to marry my cat?
He loves me.

Make all the Feds subject to all the laws we peons are forced to live under.

So, while it’s true that the absence of guns wouldn’t end violence altogether, that doesn’t prove there wouldn’t be a reduction in violence.?
Look a t the stats in places that have banned them, like Britain and Australia. Violence has SKYROCKETED.
From the New American Bible notes:
[22:36] In contrast to the ministry of the Twelve and of the seventy-two during the period of Jesus (Lk 9:3; 10:4), in the future period of the church the missionaries must be prepared for the opposition they will face in a world hostile to their preaching.
[22:38] It is enough!: the farewell discourse ends abruptly with these words of Jesus spoken to the disciples when they take literally what was intended as figurative language about being prepared to face the world’s hostility.

It happens when the invader population reaches a certain critical mass. I heard Sweden has the same problem. Swedes are now a minority, there.

In the interest of “diversity,” maybe we can find a candidate who is non-white, feminist and LGBT?
How about Oprah or Whoopee?
