Dems Seem to Threaten Catholic Church Over Idea of Denying Communion to Pro-Choice Politicians

Card image cap

As U.S. Catholic bishops draft a document about Communion and whether politicians who support abortion can be denied the sacrament, one Democrat has suggested taking away the tax-exempt status from Catholic churches for following their biblical beliefs about the sanctity of life.
There has been an ongoing debate as to whether or not President Biden and other left-leaning politicians who push for taxpayer-funded abortions should be banned from receiving Communion on the basis of their liberal views.
Rep. Jared Huffman (D-CA) lashed out at the Catholic bishops in a recent tweet saying, "If they're going to politically weaponize religion by 'rebuking' Democrats who support women's reproductive choice, then a 'rebuke' of their tax-exempt status may be in order."

The Supreme Court ruled in favor of a former high school cheerleader who was suspended for a profanity-laced post on social media in a case that has serious implications on how schools discipline students for comments made outside of school.
Brandi Levy was upset after she failed to make the varsity cheerleading squad as a freshman in 2017. After learning she wasn't on the varsity teen, Levy posted a message on Snapchat in which she used the f-word multiple times.
"F*** school f*** softball f*** cheer f*** everything," she wrote.
After school officials learned about the profane message, they suspended Levy from the junior varsity cheerleading squad, prompting her to file a lawsuit. Levy argued that the school violated her First Amendment right to freedom of speech.

Wednesday, June 23, 2021
On Wednesday, June 23, 2021, the United States Supreme Court issued its decision in 
Mahanoy Area School District v. B.L., a much-anticipated decision regarding schools’ regulation of off-campus speech. The Court held that while schools may discipline students for some off-campus speech, their ability to do so is much more limited than for on-campus speech.
B.L. was a student at Mahanoy Area High School and cheered on the junior varsity team during her freshman year. When she did not make the varsity squad her sophomore year, B.L. posted a photo to Snapchat of her and a friend holding up their middle fingers and captioned the photo with multiple uncensored expletives. She posted a second message referring to cheerleading but not including profanity. Some of B.L.’s Snapchat friends shared the posts with the cheerleading coaches, who determined that B.L. violated team rules as well as school rules. B.L. was removed from the cheerleading team for her sophomore year but was told she could try out again before her junior year. She appealed within the school system, but her appeals were rejected.

(The Center Square) – The U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of free speech rights for students outside of the classroom in a decision Wednesday.
The court sided with former Mahanoy Area High School student and cheerleader Brandi Levy in the case, formally known as
Mahanoy Area School District v B.L., with a 8-1 decision in her favor. Mahanoy Area High School is located in Pennsylvania.
Levy, upset that she had not made her school’s varsity cheer team, posted on the social media site Snapchat a simple message with explicit language expressing her frustration.
The message was captured by a classmate and was eventually presented to school officials, who decided to suspend Levy from the junior varsity cheer team for a year.

Many Florida convenience stores sell publications that feature nothing but mugshots of up to 700,000 people a year arrested by local law enforcement across the state.
Since few folks are looking their best when being arrested, the snap-shots of the humiliated, frightened, drunkenly defiant, stoned, busted, bruised and bloodied are often a source of great amusement for photobook readers and profit for its publishers.
But no more – or, at least, no more if those whose images are used commercially by publishers and a person demands their mugshots be removed.

In a Win for Student Speech, Supreme Court Rules in Favor of the 'Snapchat Cheerleader'

Mahanoy Area School District v. B.L., the case can finally live up to the hype.
“The Court made clear that schools’ power to limit campus speech is not unlimited,” says Jeff Rosen, president and CEO of the National Constitution Center, a nonprofit. “Schools can’t act like parents when disciplining off-campus speech. Students do have important First Amendment interests.”
Jen Reidel, a high school civics teacher in Washington state, had been following the case closely since last fall. She teaches a law and society class to students in Bellingham, and with her school still doing remote learning, she felt she had to find an especially interesting case to capture students’ attention through the screen. Just any Supreme Court case wouldn’t be enough to reach through those “black tiles” on Zoom and engage her students.

Colorado Mayor Does Away With the Pledge of Allegiance Due to 'Divisiveness' – RedState

Well, it appears, so segmented that we can’t agree on being a country.
For evidence, look to the small town of Silverton, Colorado.
Last Monday, the 550-resident area’s mayor, Shane Fuhrman, made an announcement.
He’d surmised something needed to be nixed from public meetings.
As reported by Denver’s Fox31, the mayor addressed the issue at a trustee conference:
“Due to direct and indirect threats, inappropriate comments in and out of public meetings and general divisiveness and issues created in our community, we will not be reciting the Pledge of Allegiance during Town of Silverton trustee meetings.”
