Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, January 24, 2018

Female journalists were forced to stand behind male journalists during Vice President Mike Pence's visit to the Western Wall in Isreal. The Wall, remnants of an ancient biblical complex, is considered one the holiest spots to pray. Men and women prayed together in the early 20th century but in recent decades Orthodox Jewish authorities took over administration of the wall and their tradition is to separate genders during prayer. Other Jewish groups have been demanding a section of the wall allow men and women to pray together. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had agreed to creating that gender-equal section of the wall but later changed his mind.

"The Wall, remnants of an ancient biblical complex, is considered one the holiest spots to pray."

That anyone takes these Orthodox a******s seriously is ridiculous. Sexist creeps that America seems to be unwilling to completely reject in the same way that we do Muslim who are hardly any different.

Pence would make a great Orthodox Jew. If Momma says it's ok.

""There will not be today, nor in the past or the future, mixing of men and women in the prayer plaza," it said in a statement."

That's what happens when you let religion control politics in the 21st century. Don't like it? Don't go to the Middle East. The only other option is to fight them until it changes. Oh, wait, our fighting in the Middle East is only over oil and whatever else the Dems like to make up.

Pence is so concerned about what Momma says and thinks that he asks the waitress to remove Mrs. Butterworth from the table anytime Mrs. Pence, er, Momma, gets up to go to the bathroom.

Self retorting retort. You live in a fantasy land of denial.

Do you realize that religion controls all of American politics in the 21st century?

Religion influences American politics more than in other developed countries. Despite our constitutional firewall between church and state, have you ever heard our politicians ever give a major speech without invoking religion?

Mostly a Fake Plastic religion.

Americans are even more religulous than Europeans.

After a shooting rampage what do we do? Nothing to solve the problem but we "pray" for the victims. The gays are responsible for all the natural disasters in America. American evangelical fundamentalists even support the death penalty in foreign lands for homosexuality because they cannot support it here.

Because of pressure from the religious right Democrats are pressured present their own religious credentials, or risk losing the loonie vote. Like reading from Two Corinthians.

Almost every speech ends it what?

God Bless America.
