:dance: Duggars lose! Fayetteville passes new anti-discrimination ordinance!

http://5newsonline.com/2015/09/08/fayet ... ordinance/

(link not broken bc news source)

Congrats Fayetteville!\\ :hug4: :gay-rainbow: :greetings-clappingyellow: :gay-color:

According to the article, there are a bunch of exemptions for religious groups, which I'm not fond of. I don't think there should be exemptions when other people's civil rights are on the line.

The Duggars have their home classified as a church correct? If that's the case they filed as a 501c3 tax exempt status.

These restrictions would apply:

-The organization must be organized and operated exclusively for religious, educational, scientific, or other charitable purposes

-Net earnings may not inure to the benefit

of any private individual or shareholder

-No substantial part of its activity may be attempting to influence legislation

-The organization may not intervene in political campaigns

-The organization’s purposes and activities may not be illegal or violate fundamental public policy

I am by no means an expert at tax law, but it seems they have broken a few of these. If i'm wrong please tell me.

I'm the last person to defend the Duggars, but no church is forced to file for tax-exempt status. There are religious groups that don't so they can be free to be politically active. I've never seen a credible report confirming that the Duggars do this, and in fact there would be some real advantages to not doing so--not only would they be free to meddle politically, they'd be exempt from mandatory reporting regulations that apply to churches.

Wow, it's so great how Michelle was working to protect children from sexual predators. I mean, everyone knows transpeople in bathrooms just want to molest children, not like they just want to pee or anything. Good thing Michelle is there to look out for children's safety.

Added phrase to emphasize that trans people need safety in bathrooms. They are not the threat; they are the threatened.

Very true. I read somewhere that transpeople are more likely than anyone to be victims of sexual assault, something like 75% report being victims. Serious wtf. Transpeople aren't trying to do anything to your child in a bathroom. In fact, as was proven in the Duggar house (and mine too) children are more likely to be victimized at home than anywhere else. Maybe she should focus on keeping children safe in their own homes. Starting with her own.

      Did whatever I had change my personality at all?  Maybe a good thing if it makes my asshole tolerance even lower than before.

      Now thats the cats out of the bag, it feels nice to finally talk about it.
      Mr. Dilly and I are excited, definitely alot of nerves during the first trimester. Had the worst morning sickness, finally getting appetite back and I've been craving spinach dip and refried beans.

      My mother's family's farm (in northern California) was the stable touchstone of my childhood, the place we went for many holidays & most summers, if only for a week or two at a time. My mother was a travel enthusiast, my father was in the military, my younger sister & I grew up in the back of a car. Been in every state in the union except maybe North Dakota, spent three months in Europe, three months in Mexico -- all before I was a teen. I realized, as an adult, I don't actually like traveling. It makes me anxious. My mother kept traveling up until shortly before she died.

      This place is much nicer when there aren’t drunk douche nozzles trying to start WWIII with my sister. 

      Last time I was here I brought my sister. There was a drunk douche cannon holding court here. He and my sister took mutual exeception to each other. Well he first then my sister responded.
      We got out of there before he got even dumber since there’s another brewery across the street.  Drunk fucker didn’t follow us and I think some flashing lights a few minutes later were for him.

      On the one hand, my mother did her best to raise my sibling & I secular & liberal/leftish, but on the other hand she regularly shipped me off to stay with her fundie farmwife mother for months at a time. I prolly spent at least a coupla years of my childhood out on that farm where my grandmother did her darnedest to convert me to all the regressive things (hilariously, all it did was push me further into the peacenik thing). I've got a lot more to say about my maternal grama, fwiw.
