If you’re taking the hormone pills, undergoing therapy, and are planning to do or have done the reassignment surgery, then you can call yourself transgender.
Otherwise, if you’re just dressing like the opposite sex and that’s how you “identify yourself”, you’re not transgender, just a transvestite. And you have no business being in the opposite sex’s restrooms.
I predict it’s only going to take one incident of a rape in the ladies’ room, by a guy who claimed to identify as female, for the support for this cause to drop like a brick.
And it's LONG overdue, Just like the "big one" earthquake long overdue in CA.

I don’t think any more candidates should drop out until at least a bunch of primary elections are done. Or at least have 5-6 choices lasting as far as May. Some states would like to actually have a choice and not just begrudgingly rubber-stamp the presumed winner. This primary process is a joke.
the problem with that is - who is going to fund a campaign that is polling at 0% ? How can someone like Jindal remain in the race until May? On paper only....without staff on the ground ? That would be a joke

“…the true average American is non-religious and has no interest in prayer at public events.”
Maybe because they’re taking Matthew 6:5-6 to heart?

That or they have to put Braille on all the ATMs to comply with ADA laws.

Government forcing churches to perform same-sex weddings?
It's not about forcing churches to perform homosexual weddings. It's about all that new tax money.
Naaaaa...mooslimz are O'Kingod-ober-allus... kissin-butz-buddies!!
The government has no intention in trying to perform same-sex weddings and this was covered in the majority opinion. Actually, huge numbers of Christian, Jewish, Wiccan, Buddhist and -yes-Muslim clergy already happily perform same sex marriages. Gays don't need any backwards church to get married.

Well, in the USA, the Free Exercise Clause trumps God’s rules, where official government stuff is concerned. You’re just gonna have to come up with a better reason against gay marriage than “because Bible”.

TGD: They still qualify under the Constitution as religious institutions, though.
F’ing Free Exercise Clause, how does it work?

termyt: Then fight the activists and agenda-warriors on those fronts. Flouting statistics and tertiary effects have led to the worst restrictive laws in recent history. We can defeat the leftist-statists without encouraging the nanny-statists.

Show me where, in Genesis, God performed a wedding and said “I declare you husband and wife” to Adam & Eve. No, “be fruitful and multiply” doesn’t count.
I’m not belittling marriage; I worship God, not a book.

“It’s not truth, but simply something they hold to in an attempt to eradicate God.”
Why would God be eradicated if evolution is found to be true? Would it really ruin your faith if God actually started the “big bang”, and then created DNA and the other basic building blocks of life, and guided evolution along its course? Science and religion don’t have to be mutually exclusive.

Last I heard they were a great country to do business in. The music is pretty cool too.

And let’s not forget the NINTH Amendment, either. “The enumeration… of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.” That means we have all sorts of rights, even if the Constitution doesn’t mention them, as long as we aren’t taking away the life, liberty or property of others.
And you know the original purpose of the marriage license was, right? To make sure nobody was interracially marrying (in some states, anyway). Funny how a lot of our restrictive laws start out with racist intentions.

This is why I am not a big fan of the new “keyless ignition” features in the newer cars. You know that’s next… they’ll be able to mimic your keychain transmitter that allows the push-button starting, and all of a sudden, GTA!
Getting a key copied – or re-created from just a lock – seems to be a lot harder now. Which is why I don’t want any push-button-to-start cars.
