Shep talks over their BS press conference. Won't let them use his time on the news to fleece the hicks.

I'm still laughing at Shep stepping up and shitting all over their press conference on the news channel with the most sympathetic audience for this garbage. Well done Shep.

I have a lot of respect for the Shepster. Those of You Who So Well Know the Nature of My Soul, will know I have noted he was the ONLY Talking Head who ever got Teri Sciavo's condition correct. Of course, he brought in an expert who actually treated head injuries and the like rather than "Imma radiologist and I think JESUS!!!"

What I almost posted the other day, but didn't, and wish now that I had, was speculation that Mrs. Davis would fire the deputies who issued marriage licenses to gay couples. Now I read that her "backers" are clamoring for her to do just that.

http://www.reuters.com/article/2015/09/ ... RC20150909

It would be the next logical move in a strategy to retain media coverage and the associated free publicity.

I would think "firing" would be perceived as "hindering" in the mind of the federal judge.

I am sure he will react well to her doing that.

Guess who's showing up to bring a more rational perspective on the situation... you know, really help calm things down there.

Worth a note--if you judge by the comments, they are facing dissent from at least some who supported them cheerfully until now.

There are still Oathkeepers? I thought they became a punchline for shows like True Detective.

Too bad this is the barricade they chose.

Considering their initial schtick, they had potential.

Justices side with Colorado baker on same-sex wedding cake

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court ruled Monday for a Colorado baker who wouldn't make a wedding cake for a same-sex couple in a limited decision that leaves for another day the larger issue of whether a business can invoke religious objections to refuse service to gay and lesbian people.

The justices' decision turned on what the court described as anti-religious bias on the Colorado Civil Rights Commission when it ruled against baker Jack Phillips. The justices voted 7-2 that the commission violated Phillips' rights under the First Amendment.

The case had been eagerly anticipated as, variously, a potentially strong statement about the rights of LGBT people or the court's first ruling carving out exceptions to an anti-discrimination law. In the end, the decision was modest enough to attract the votes of liberal and conservative justices on a subject that had the potential for sharp division.

Justice Anthony Kennedy said in his majority opinion that the larger issue "must await further elaboration" in the courts. Appeals in similar cases are pending, including one at the Supreme Court from a florist who didn't want to provide flowers for a same-sex wedding.


For gay couples out there who want to buy a wedding cake, take your business to someone who wants your money.

The way the Freepers are going on about this "cake" decision you'd think it was the second coming of Jesus, whereas the homos over by Democratic Underground are circumspect but not downcast.

All that happened is the Supremes ruled the man had not had a fair trial. No laws overturned.

I should wait until I have time to read it the case thoroughly.

But if the court actually applied strict scrutiny, the result should not be a surprise.

As one analyst put it, it does not mean he could refuse to make such a cake again.

Sort of like finding out that you were racially discriminated against at your court hearing: does not mean it is now legal for you to speed even if your religion allows you to . . . what?

I think the ruling is a big nothingburger.

wat?

It's not the end of civil rights nor is it the encroaching theocracy.

I think most people just need to calm their tits.
