Episcopalians voted overwhelmingly Wednesday to allow religious weddings for same-sex couples, solidifying the church's embrace of gay rights that began more than a decade ago with the pioneering election of the first openly gay bishop.

Rep Chumley: SC Victims "Waited Their Turn To Be Shot"

South Carolina state Rep. Bill Chumley (R) told CNN he thinks the nine victims of a shooting in a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, "waited their turn to be shot."

Chumley was defending the use of the Confederate flag at the South Carolina capitol grounds when he made the remarks, blaming "misuse and miseducation of the flag" for the debate over its use. Chumley argued access to guns, not the Confederate flag, is what South Carolina lawmakers should be focusing on in the aftermath of the massacre.

"These people sat in there and waited their turn to be shot," Chumley said. "That's sad. Somebody in there with a means of self-defense could've stopped this."

Bill requires women to recite Gettysburg Address while hopping on one foot 24 hours before abortion

Gov. FuckStick McGee

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/news/politics/os-abortion-waiting-period-bill-20150610-story.html

Women in Florida will have to wait 24 hours and make at least two appointments before getting an abortion under a bill that Gov. Rick Scott signed into law Wednesday.

HB 633 includes exceptions for victims of rape, incest, domestic violence and human trafficking, but those seeking abortions must provide proof of those situations with a police report or medical documents.

"We are blessed in the state of Florida to have a governor that stands for life," said Rep. Jennifer Sullivan, R-Mount Dora, who sponsored the bill.

The waiting period "will empower women across our state to make an informed decision on this life-changing procedure,'' she added.

Did I really just see that Jeb Bush has declared himself "Hispanic?"

On edit, YES, apparently he did.

Sorry I'm late to this party.

This is a short instrumental piece inspired by the city's renowned Jazz scene. If you like it, please give it a "rec." It is, of course, free to download and stream. Thanks again for listening.

With all due respect, now you know what it's like as a group to be judged by the actions of a few.

I'm sorry, but I simply must agree with Ms. Lauten.......

Everyone knows a smart daytime suit and matching shoes are what's required for a poultry exoneration ceremony. It's Emily Post 101.



Sometimes you just have to make light of it all: "The Ebola Czars"; GREAT name for a band! n/t
