And Huckabee is a legal IDIOT!!!
All of those people he mention are CRIMINALS that were found GUILTY of CAPITAL CRIMES, and they DESERVED PRISON, and were therefor DENIED BAIL because they were HEINOUS CRIMINALS!
Contempt of court is a CRIME against THE COURT, not the people. People FOUND IN CONTEMPT are doing something against the court orders, or in DEFIANCE of the court.
John Wayne Gacy did NOTHING to defy the court. Jeffrey Dahlmer did NOTHING to defy the court. Kim Davis said that she would continue to deny citizens their rights if the judge released her. She DEFIED THE COURT!
The idea that someone who has been FOUND IN CONTEMPT OF COURT could BUY their way out of that punishment is RIDICULOUS! There would in effect be NO PUNISHMENT then, would there?
And the huge reaction over the fundraising question was sticking a hornets nest with a stick.
DAMN RIGHT those Godless masses are hard at work fleecing their followers.
And it's pathetic. It's not as if they already don't have a HUGE number of very rich jackals who gleefully throw their shekels at the feet of these hypocrite American Taliban enablers...
You accuse me of being sanctimonious and proselytizing without acknowledging your own. You characterized Christians as good (non-coercive) versus bad (coercive) Christians without acknowledging the more fundamental truth - you don't share their belief system. You have found your own system that you find more "sensible". You go on to then "gently" make a case for Wicca/Paganism. If you weren't trying to coerce people into understanding and potentially accepting the validity of your belief system why bring it up at all?
As far as my "proselytizing", one cannot proselytize a non-belief system. There is a difference between sharing and promoting a belief system versus asking someone to defend why they believe something without evidence. And your last paragraph above seems to show you remain conflicted. The Earth/Nature's abilities ARE natural and evolutionary. No outside agents nor miracles are involved. I hope you will come to embrace that fully as the science advances.
This was the best recently. 3 parts.
I have only one question for Staves: How does your client feel about being behind bars, while gay people are enjoying their civil rights?
