Here's one part about this whole thing I don't get.
1. An established form of government, or civil polity; or more generally, a state; a body politic, consisting of a certain portion of men united by compact or tacit agreement, under one form of government and system of laws. This term is applied to the government of Great Britain, which is of a mixed character, and to other governments which are considered as free or popular, but rarely or improperly, to an absolute government. A commonwealth is properly a free state; a popular or representative government; a republic; as the commonwealth of Massachusetts. The word signifies strictly, the common good or happiness; and hence, the form of government supposed best to secure the public good.
This is the definition of commonwealth of when Kentucky became part of the union.If you read this,Kentucky does not have to conform to the scotus ruling.It's one of the perks of being a commonwealth instead of a state. They do not have to conform to an absolute government, if it hurts their perceived common good or happiness.The federal government accepted them as a commonwealth,not a state.
I had to do some digging, I know words have changed meanings over time.I just couldn't buy the "It's to show its historical significance to Great Britian" crap.
Since mom and dad think the rapture is nigh I doubt they're teaching much science.

Murder? That’s against the law. Somebody should call the police.

Mythology and superstition have always been creepy. Some things never change.

And in 2014, Mat Staver and his “Liberty” Counsel argued in a petition for a writ of mandamus in Florida that county clerks’ duties were only ministerial and they therefore had no discretion in their performance or in choosing laws to follow or not follow.
Can’t have it both ways, hypocritical Pharisees.

Wishing for religion without delusion is like asking for an omelet made without eggs. Religion without delusion cannot exist as all religions are wholly based on the delusions arising from superstition and supernaturalism.
There are universal truths of goodness in every religion. that is what the Pope is focusing on, the teachings and the mercy of Jesus, not the theology surrounding it. religion ultimately is about morality, not stories being taken literally.
This flood was mentioned as one of the flood myths in the Interview. But the flood of Gilgamesh was not a world-wide flood, merely one that encompassed the Tigris and Euphrates region . It also did not mention Mt Ararat, or any mountains for that matter.
There are hundreds of Great Flood stories, nearly one for every civilization. And that is massive evidence in favor that some great flood happened, and that all those peoples who spoke different languages were together in the past and shared that story before they separated.
It's ridiculous to think that different people's from all over the world who couldn't contact each other, and couldn't communicate even if they could have, would have all invented a destructive flood story as part as their civilization's mythos.
Did you know that the Chinese pictograp for the word "boat" is actually a drawing of 8 people in a boat.

This case is about as “gray” as you can get in regard to whether the activity and coach participation violated the Equal Access Act. Sounds like they had the full intent of staying in compliance. Much ado over very little, imo.
There are enough blatant, deliberate violations going on to worry about without getting too upset over this one.

Which might be why some “spellcheck” applications don’t flag it.

Maybe Billy’s British? It’s a common spelling over there.

Holy schnickes! The benhams? Is every “celebrity” thumper in the country in East Bumble, Kentucky today?

Mat Staver? This is the very same attorney who filed a complaint in 2014 in an attempt to compel a FLORIDA county clerk to NOT be allowed to use discretion in the performance of their sworn duties. HA!
