Kentucky passes religious-freedom act [A State Law passed in 2013 Judge Bunning ignored]

Free Republic

Overriding Gov. Steve Beshear’s veto by overwhelming margins, the Kentucky house and senate have passed religious-freedom legislation. The Catholic Conference of Kentucky supported the measure.

The short law reads:

Government shall not substantially burden a person’s freedom of religion. The right to act or refuse to act in a manner motivated by a sincerely held religious belief may not be substantially burdened unless the government proves by clear and convincing evidence that it has a compelling governmental interest in infringing the specific act or refusal to act and has used the least restrictive means to further that interest. A “burden” shall include indirect burdens such as withholding benefits, assessing penalties, or an exclusion from programs or access to facilities.

Eight Republican Traitors Facilitating Iran Sellout



The execrable Colin Powell isn’t the only ostensible “Republican” who will have American blood on his hands when the Iranian terror state predictably exploits the $150 billion windfall and the green light on its nuclear weapons and ballistic programs entailed in the Obama/Kerry deal.

According to the Constitution, treaties are only in force when they have been ratified by two-thirds of the Senate. But the Republican-controlled Senate preemptively surrendered that brake on executive overreach where the Iran nuclear deal is concerned. Marco Rubio proposed an amendment that would require Obama to certify that Iran is not targeting Americans and our allies with terrorism. The amendment was shot down 45-54 by Democrats and their GOP collaborators.

Here’s how Mark Levin described this act of treachery last April:

Any politicians who voted to let the Iran sellout happen had better stay in their secure bunkers for a while after the inevitable mushroom clouds sprout. Angry mobs may be difficult to control.

Needed: A Million More Like Kim Davis

Freedom Outpost

For the first time in American history a woman has been imprisoned by the government for merely exercising her Christian faith. War has been declared on Christ and His followers.

And there’s no turning back.

Anti-Christian persecution is the civil rights cause of our time. The cultural Marxists in power have seceded from our constitutional republican form of government, with its Judeo-Christian moorings, and have supplanted, in its place, a secular-socialist oligarchy. Like Union troops hunkered at Fort Sumter, faithful Christians are now exiles in our own land. Anti-Christian “progressives” have demanded unconditional surrender, and federal Judge David Bunning has fired the first mortar.

Even as I write, a kind, soft-spoken and well respected civil servant of 27 years sits languishing, like some violent criminal, in a Kentucky prison. She is confined, indefinitely and without benefit of a trial, to a tiny cell. She is a political prisoner in a spiritual war. Like so many accidental civil-rights heroes that came before her, Davis, a Democrat who was overwhelmingly elected as Rowan County clerk, has peacefully and graciously refused to violate her Christian conscience. She has declined to sign her name to marriage certificates that defy God’s natural design for the timeless institution and has requested, as a simple accommodation, that either her name be removed from the marriage licenses, thus eliminating her personalized acquiescence to the Supreme Court’s novel attempt to usurp God’s authority and redefine this cornerstone institution, or, alternatively, “to allow licenses to be issued by the chief executive of Rowan County or [by] developing a statewide, online marriage license process.”
