Dear Senator McConnell (or whichever member of his staff is writing on his behalf) ,
I'm a Christian and churchgoer myself and I didn't feel "persecuted"in the least, nor that my religious freedom was being restricted, so that's the thing - no one was being singled out because of their faith, they were singled out based on defiance of emergency protection laws put in place for public health and safety, which you would think would be laws that both sides of politics would agree on.
In fact, that's the reason we even have laws, to protect ourselves and others from harm - it's just we can't all agree on just who and what should be protected and how.
However, on this one, public health and safety, I would think that the Republican Party would agree, considering (your) main argument against Muslim extremist terrorism, abortion, and LGBTQ, has been societal protection from these harms.
Thus, I am left wondering whether these arguments were less about protecting society and more about money and social control.
it appears to me that the new GOP is changing the definition of law from protecting the public and more about protecting just individual civil liberties - despite the fact that other people's civil liberties can and will cause harm to others., such as with this virus.
You know, Republicans and Democrats used to be like a balanced marriage - one reined the other in if they went too far. Now it's like a bitter divorce - and it appears you don't care, as long as your party's in control.
That really doesn't bother you?
See? I behaved myself.
I didn't even call him Cocaine Mitch, Moscow Mitch, Duplicitous Douche Wad, Greedy Political Hack - or anything!
