Seven Florida clergy members have filed lawsuits against the state's abortion ban following the Supreme Court's ruling that struck down Roe v Wade. The group, which includes two Christians, three Jews, one Unitarian Universalist and a Buddhist, argues that the ban, signed into law by Governor Ron DeSantis in April, violates their freedom to practice their religious faith.

The lawsuits obtained by the Post are not a class action and were filed in five separate instances across the Sunshine State. They argue that Mr DeSantis' abortion ban also "violates the separation of church and state under the federal and state constitutions."

"HB 5, entitled the Infant and Fetal Abnormality Act, establishes as the law of the State of Florida, a pernicious elevation of the legal rights of fetuses while at the same time it devalues the quality of life and the health of the woman or girl who is pregnant," the filing, made available by the Post, reads.

I can't emphasize this enough: All the religious freedom and belief rulings are the very ground where anti abortion laws will go to die. And if this SCOTUS ever rules in opposition to its own previous findings, then the complete and utter devolution of Republican jurists being nothing more than political hacks can no longer be challenged, literally or intellectually.

Short of completely ignoring the unambiguous language of the Constitution and the Establishment Clause, it is clear as day that anti abortion advocates aren't trying to place objective science-based distinctions into law, they are simply codifying their own religious beliefs to usurp those of others who don't believe or feel as they do.

Here, hold their keg.

That's apparently become a feature for them rather than a bug.

But the more the truth gets out, the less effective the Big Lie will be with most people. Just not DJT's ,minority of people... hey, there's a silver lining; them being an actual minority rather than the majority they seem to think they are.

Perhaps the truth will will out:

"Nay, indeed, if you had your eyes, you might fail of the knowing me: it is a wise father that knows his own child.
Well, old man, I will tell you news of your son: give me your blessing: truth will come to light; murder cannot be hid long; a man's son may, but at the length truth will out."

Religion is like a penis. It's nice to have one and fine to be proud of. Don't whip it out in public or shove it down someone else's throat.

The fact that five justices lied under oath to get their jobs proves they are nothing more than political hacks.

If religion is like a penis then pastors are nudists and we're praising these clergymen for whipping it out.
