TP article saying the supreme court's decision not to allow a Muslim man to have an imam at his execution is "a failure of empathy"

let's call it what it is: theocracy, dressed up in bad-faith legalese. that's what it is. every single conservative member of that court was appointed to serve the interests of christian theocracy. this is officially the society we now live under.

dominionist evangelical christians have officially executed a coup d'etat, and this is a sign of what's to come.

and they haven't even been quiet about it either. it's all out there. they've been publicly saying "this is what we're doing" since the 70s.

and their strongest allies in this endeavor have been moderate Democrats and Republicans who have dismissed them as fringe, unimportant, incapable of carrying out their goals, even as the Republican Party has literally catered to their every whim

@kittybecca I like the wiki page on Jewish emancipation. I often an confronted by my bias as a New Yorker with the legacy of thought that somehow northern states are superior to southern ones. (Or as a NY'er, no state comes up to ours!) Seeing New Hampshire~live free of die~22 years after my town opened a college with an male equivalent education for Women...12 years after the civil war...helps remind me not to be diluted in the American mythology.

@kittybecca I have to wonder how much of the loudest foot stoping and tooth-gnashing re: Ilhan Omar’s (admittedly slightly problematic) comments are actually evangelical fundies who want to ship us all to Israel just so they can have a cookout to watch while Jesus zaps us with his laser eyes, or whatever.

@NightRose or more pragmatically, they might simply want to ship us all off so they can have their homogeneous white Christian ethnostate where they don't ever have to acknowledge the existence of people who aren't themselves

i feel like this is also a huge aspect of their alignment with the Israeli lobby: they know we have typically fought for actual religious freedom, and they want to render us ineffective at doing so
