LARRY CLARK IS DONE: Clark has sponsored HB 5 which will increase taxes on employers and decrease benefits for jobless workers. Senate backs bill to shore up jobless fund courier-journal.com The Courier-Journal. This guy is supposedly labor friendly? Clark get a grip. You cannot help anyone by making it even harder on employers by increasing their tax burdens. We are already one of the highest taxed States in the Country.
Furthermore decreasing benefits for jobless workers in this economy is a pathetic display of leadership. Work to aid business in creating jobs so the unemployment factor is lessened. Get a clue.
RAND PAUL IS AGAINST AUTOMATIC CITIZENSHIP FOR ILLEGALS BORN ON US SOIL: Way to go Rand Paul. I like this. Paul opposes citizenship for babies of illegals courier-journal.com The Courier-Journal. Now let's get really serious and start holding employers accountable for using illegal immigrants. Start going after those like Catholic Charities who continue to flood illegals into the workplace and devalue American workers.
With some estimates claiming that the cost of illegals in America approaches $340 Billion dollars annually it would seem it is time to start working towards fixing this problem.
CATHOLIC LEADERSHIP REALLY THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK?: Louisville Archbishop Joseph Kurtz is now leading a committee of the Catholic bishop's conference that opposes federal job protection for gay citizens. Make of it what you will but I find this interesting to say the least. Misguided campaign courier-journal.com The Courier-Journal
According to the CJ:
Just last fall, the archbishop made headlines for lending financial support to the campaign in Maine against gay marriage. Now his target is the Employment Nondiscrimination Act (ENDA), which was first introduced in 1994 and is headed for reconsideration by Congress later this year.
In his position as chairman of the bishops' Ad Hoc Committee for the Defense of Marriage, the archbishop is publicly opposing ENDA on the grounds that it would "legally affirm and specially protect any sexual conduct outside of marriage."
Apparently the Archbishop DOESN'T have a clue. His own statement to protect any sexual conduct outside of marriage for most average intelligent folks would include those who are not gay. If he honestly believes that every hetero sexual couple that comes before the Church seeking to get married is virgin then I really do have some swampland in Arizona to sell him. With that in mind it seems very clear that once again the Church is trying to involve itself in State business in regards to equal constitutional rights.
If the religious leadership and churches want to continually play the role of law maker then I suggest they start being held accountable like the rest of us. Lose the tax exempt status. Yep you read it right.
If the church wants to be political than start paying your taxes like everyone else does.
Of course that won't happen because it would cost millions. And the Church does like its money.
Even more questionably, How can the Catholic leadership take any lead role in this issue? Were they not the ones who continued hiding gay pedophile priests by denying any wrongdoing and moving these priests around from Church to Church to do the same thing again? Where were they then?
They were doing their best to avoid any repercussions for their failures. At the expense of even more children. Sounds rather Godly doesn't it? How much did that cost the congregation of tithers to the Church. Millions with many millions more to come.
Wonder why I do not contribute through the Church anymore?
Archbishop I suggest you cleanup your own house of worship to God. Let ye who are without sin cast the first stone sound familiar? Let others take care of this house. It may not be a perfect house but it certainly has no lesser morals than you have proven yours are.
