A former Bremerton High School Football Coach appealed his “termination” to the US Supreme Court after the 9th Circuit upheld it. At the heart of the case is the question of religious liberty and the free expression thereof.
While there has been much argument and debate over whether or not the Coach should have been “fired” or not, the case made its way to the halls of the Supreme Court, where it landed on the Conference table last Friday (January 18, 2019).
To the outrage of political conservatives and confusion of liberals, the Supreme Court declined to hear the case, allowing the 9th Circuits ruling in the matter to stand. Which means that the coach doesn’t get his preliminary injunction awarding him his job back.
From pundits to Talking Heads, political conservative outrage has poured out proclaiming a new front in the “War on Christianity” and so forth. Justice Alito’s comments have the political right shaking its fists and screeching as to how our culture has abandoned G-d and the Bible.
As usual, there is a missing piece here. It’s a matter of math. Subtraction to be exact.
Nine minus four equals….?
It all started when I had to get a new phone. The one they wanted me to buy comes with something called, “Augmented Reality.” I had no clue what that is…
It turns out that AR is something that we all are experiencing more and more of each and every day. in fact, it is designed to stop you from doing the one thing that you shouldn’t be stopped from doing for yourself – Think. But it has taken over ever aspect of what we see, hear and decide. From the President to the NFL ratings to the City of Bremerton’s decision to install security Cameras. All of it does one thing – decide what you think of something before you ever stop to consider it for yourself.
Oh… if you disagree with the AR, then you’re “stupid.” Read the rest of this entry
So… first things first.. the audio quality of this particular show is just nothing short of complete crap. I
know that. So save the technical eMails. This was recorded in my Brother-in-Laws kitchen with equipment that is less than satisfactory but was all that was available. I highly recommend NOT using headphones.
I really thought that I should just round file it, but after a few days of fiddling with it I decided that it has been too long since there’s been a new show, so here it is.
Our POD arrives on the 2nd of August (a seminal date in my history), which means that by the middle of August the new studio *should* be set up, although there is one factor that could push that back a week or two.
We are in the house, roughing things until we get our stuff. But otherwise things are really great. Except for the heat. Yep, it keeps hitting 80 degrees here.
It’s crazy hot!
Yes, I’m kidding. Stay cool, my friends!
