Alabama, The UnAmerican

And by all accounts to those that claim Christianity and say their religion is about the Good Samaritan Parable, Alabama is certainly very  unChristian as well. From the refusal to extend Medicaid to creating bogus laws to try to shut down prochoice clinics, Alabama has a lot of work to do. By accepting fault, is a good first step and acknowledging the facts of why and how Alabama is one of the least progressive states in America; from confederate flag toters to bigots in the State’s office, we are concerned with our politics and lack of direction. To say the least I believe our representatives and many others are unhinged. We could talk policies and lawmaking all day long, but what is it that we’re doing today to really and truly improve the lives of the people in our state? Where is the transparency of Alabama’s government when it comes to where our taxes are going, how we vote people in or out of office, and the massive restraints and intolerance when it comes to the 1st Amendment. As a reminder, your religion is your own and that means you have no right on American soil to assume you have religious privilege, that is what we would call UnAmerican, and I see it almost everyday living in the South. You are allowed to display it anytime, but if you discriminate because of it, disrespect the innocent because of it, abuse or kill because of it, then you are a terrorist and a threat to society and will be handled justifiably. There are over 20,000 people who are true Americans in our state, that’s 19,999 more than enough to set the record straight. Like the Dalai Lama has said, “if you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito.”

Thank you to all supporters fighting for good will of  all mankind; may we have the courage to do what’s right in the face of adversity.
