I think his point is that, even though the stabbing was not by any means justified, the communication should have happened before they became intimate. (As happened in your example.)

Defense Sec. Mattis says trans members can continue to serve until study completed, will advise Trump

I get the feeling he's either going to have a rough term from here on out or he'll just get the boot for disagreeing with a sitting President, especially with as clear as Trump's been on the issue.

I find the judges's arguments in that last unconvincing. I just don't see how it is warranted to equate dicrimination against a particular type of event with discrimination against a class of people, especially when the vendor would, and in many cases has, happily served those same people in all cases that AREN'T in connection with the event they object to.

I'm curious if this same restriction would be placed on a business that refused to create works for an interfaith marriage because their faith objects to interfaith marriage, even though they would happily provide those same services to those same people in a different context.

I just am not convinced that events should have the same anti-discrimination protections as individuals.

Trump just nominated extreme anti-LGBTQ bigot Jeff Mateer to a lifetime seat on a federal court in Texas and this nomination is so beyond the pale, marking such a new low in Trump’s already unprecedentedly extreme string of judicial nominees, that if we can’t stop his confirmation, our country is in even worse trouble than we thought.

Mateer spoke at the 2015 Radical Right “Kill the Gays” Conference -- an extreme anti-LGBTQ event organized by a far-right pastor who's advocated for the death penalty for gay people.

He once described transgender youth as part of “Satan’s plan,” he’s advocated for the dangerous practice of “conversion therapy” for LGBTQ people, and he’s said that the Supreme Court’s decision allowing same-sex marriage could lead to bestiality.

Link to petition

If Mateer can be confirmed, then ANY nominee -- no matter how unfit, unethical, or unhinged -- can be confirmed … and Trump and the Radical Right will have a green light to run roughshod over our entire judicial branch.

As a lawyer for the Religious Right First Liberty Institute, Mateer focused on cases that were part of the Right’s ongoing crusade to redefine religious liberty as a right to discriminate, particularly against LGBTQ people.

The confirmation of an ideologue as extreme as Mateer would be an unforgivable affront to American values like equality, fairness, and an independent judiciary that acts as an arbiter of justice for all Americans.

There is no nominee we’ve seen who has been more unfit, with a record more disqualifying, than Jeff Mateer.

We need your name on this petition right now to let the Senate know that allowing this nominee to proceed would cross the line of decency. Please speak out and tell your senators to call for the Mateer nomination to be WITHDRAWN.
Got this E-mail earlier, not exactly pleased but not even remotely surprised.
