Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 15, 2016

Qatar, like most Muslim countries, treats women as second-class citizens, but champion-of-women Hillary never lets a little thing like that stop her from doing business... And a far greater threat than murderous Muslims adhering to a fanatical 7th-century religious ideology lurks right here at home -- those pesky Roman Catholics and their silly 2,000-year-old faith...

The bigotry shown by her campaign aides is a hint of what's to come under a Hillary administration: continuing pressure on Catholics to adapt to contemporary "progressive" social-justice norms. Not that she's likely to put it so bluntly, especially during the campaign. That might alienate potential Catholic voters.

Obviously Qatar gave Bill Clinton a million dollars for his birthday to show solidarity with his treatment of women.

I'm guessing that what this actually means is not letting religious folks use "religious freedom" to force their personal views on everyone else.

To that I say good. They shouldn't have the right or ability to do so.

JPW, so.. I would suggest a compromise. The religious people will not force their personal views on everyone else, and the progressives will not force their views on the religious people.

Can you agree with that?

What the heck does "force their personal views" mean though? Is the Hobby Lobby decision an example of where it's allowed for a company to force their personal views on their female employees, or what?

At face value? No.

The current drive for "religious freedom" is an affront to our tradition of secular government.

Granting gay rights is not, it's actually an extension of it via the civil rights movement.

The "religious rights" argument is, IMO, the ace up the sleeve of the gasping-for-air right. A last ditch attempt at maintaining their stranglehold on American politics by framing their arguments in what they hope is an unassailable context.

Well, to be blunt...f--- them.

Force what views?
That women are not property?
That slavery is wrong?
That children should not be beaten and exploited?

What other "progressive" views that the government had to force onto religious people do you think they have a right to ignore?

Oh, and although I agree with this article, Hillary is still a better choice than Trump.

So you prove my point, progressives are not willing to let people live out their beliefs.

What beliefs, exactly?

If you just wanna believe stuff, fine.
Surely you mean you don't want to bake this cake, or perform that marriage.

Keep your religious view in your place of worship and our government will keep its policies out of that place.

Our governments have always been based on christian morality.

Now that we can no longer do that due to globalism we have no moral base.

In governance or community.

We are the 4th Roman Empire.

Morals existed before Christianity.

Not when living out their beliefs means forcing others to conform to them.

Believe what you want in your own personal life and behave accordingly. Once you expect others to play along even if the disagree, then we have a problem.

CNN's been pouring through these and they are working hard to make something "newsworthy" from them. So far they seem more disappointed more than anything else. The biggest thing is that Qatar $1,000,000 gift to the Clinton Foundation, but they can't seem to find any indication that it was actually given, or that the donors making the proposal even met Clinton. All we know is the money Qatar's donated annually hasn't appeared to vary much.

This "wikileaks" dump is, so far, a big bag o' nothin'.

Nonsense. --------. Poppycock. Where was that "Christian morality" when dealing with Natives? Slaves? Panama? Mexico? Spain? Industrialization? Manifest Destiny ring a bell there Appeasementboy?

You have created a strawGod in order to whine about something you pretend is new that is actually what built America- Imperialism and capitalism.

And given your newfound love of Christian morality, what does the Bible say about diddling 10 year olds, torturing children and tossing nukes around? You know, your Saint Donald's SOP?
