Scratch a Christian Nationalist, Find a White Supremacist

First off, there's the TOFF, who spouted some really racist shit that his being arrested apeals to Black voters.

Now, to the main event:

When the Alabama Supreme Court ruled that frozen embryos are considered children under state law, its chief justice had a higher authority in mind.

By citing verses from the Bible and Christian theologians in his concurring opinion, Chief Justice Tom Parker alarmed advocates for church-state separation, while delighting religious conservatives who oppose abortion.

Anyone else remember when Southern conservatives were invoking the Bible to justify segregation, Jim Crow and slavery? Alabama is a racist, Christianist shithole. Remember the state motto of Georgia: "It's always worse in Alabama." Or Mississsippi: "We try to be better than Alabama."

Now, on to the mocking:

I don't think that I have made any secret that I am a Christian. That being said, I find it totally unconstitutional for any judge to base a verdict on his or her religion.
This time, Christians get their hoped for outcome. What happens when some other religion gets their judge to decide something they don't agree with? Say perhaps that a Muslim judge says that speech against their religion is hate speech. Would the Christians be so approving?
It is often said that America was founded on Judeo/Christian principles. While that is open to debate, the fact is that our constitution was written with all people in mind, religious or atheist, or some combination of the two.
Like I said I am a Christian. And of course I have my opinions about how America should be run. Fortunately my opinion is that we must serve people of any race, creed, sexual identity or other thing that could serve to separate us. When you see decisions like this, you can only hope that it is challenged and reversed. Fairness is perhaps one of the most important things we have left.

Nothing like reductio ad absurdum. I'm an atheist, but the ten commandments and the Golden Rule look like a good way to conduct your life.
