I yearn for 1846 to 1848.
Oh dear, religous freedom is evilllll. Time to rewrite the 1st amendment/s
I predict we will see boycotts of states which have not yet embraced homosexual marriage. Or global warming. Or which have passed laws li iting abortion on demand. Or any other liberal cause of the day.
Years ago, some states were boycotted by national organizations if they had not ratified the Equal Rights Amendment. We could see this happen again with marriage or any other liberal cause.
I hope the NFL still yanks the LoserBowl. It is going to take something on that scale to wake up the dead heads that this is a loser - lose deal when you fight on their terms.
Almost every one I have met that immigrated here is JW or some kind of Evangelical.
