My freedom of association, and yours
May I order orange juice at Memories Pizza? Last week saw the roiling of public opinion over laws in Indiana and Arkansas that seek to allow greater protection to those with religious objections to legal mandates that they perform specific actions when they claim a conscientious objector status.

University of Michigan cancels “American Sniper” screening
A couple of days ago Kimberly Ross wrote a diary here on RedState titled “Generation Wuss.” She was talking about the pervasive mindset among a large swath of Americans that they have the right to be sheltered from any opinion that might make them feel uncomfortable: This really is Generation Wuss.

Rand Paul Exposes Democrat Anti-Woman, Anti-Choice Death Culture
Thank you, Rand Paul, for sticking it to The Woman. The AP threw him “the question” on abortion Wednesday during his NH campaign swing, and Rand threw it right back.

Tech at Night: The Internet’s dangerous, but the NSA is there to help
I’ve said it pretty regularly in this space: the Internet isn’t for kids. However the scary thing is that even if you don’t realize you’re putting your kids online, you really might be, as those parents with an online service-based nanny cam found out. Be careful out there. NSA does the dirty work, but there’s only so much they can do.
My Friend Lucy
You will have to humor me in this as I take up the front page of RedState for a personal post and some language that does not normally appear here at RedState.

You Will Be Made To Worship Their god
The opponents of RFRA are still quick to deploy their “separation of church and state cliché, but one side is demanding that the state fine people for declining to participate in a religious service. It isn’t mine. It’s the ACLU and its allies who are ready to use the power of the state to compel unwilling people to participate in religious services.

Why Do Sabrina Rubin Erdely’s Rape Stories Keep Falling Apart?
As of this moment, we are now up to three stories about rape that Sabrina Rubin Erdely has written that would not pass responsible journalistic muster.

The Hidden Misogyny of Planned Parenthood
Hates Ladies. You Can Just Tell. We’ve all made a certain mistake. I have also. We’ve each, at one sad turn in our lives, ridden in a car to lunch with the biggest Bunghole that God ever had the warped sense of humor to allow continued survival. I rarely, you could almost make that never; sympathize with women who self-identify as | Read More »
