With the election of Trump, many – heck, all of the leftists I know found themselves stuck somewhere in the first four stages of the Kübler-Ross model. Now with the inauguration, they’re starting to move out to acceptance; it’s tough tho’, because they so enjoy being depressed, stage 4.
Anyway, I encountered some responses that made me think about creating this post. The responses, like the title of this post, all tend to be of the woe-is-me type. Like how did we get here? Here’s a few reasons:
- The IRS Scandal
- Barronelle Stutzman
- Sweet Cakes by Melissa
- Masterpiece Cakeshop
- Fort Des Moines Church of Christ
- Memories Pizza
- Little Sisters of the Poor, a link which includes the comment below
It illustrates that the government could have accommodated the Little Sisters of the Poor all along without affecting contraceptive coverage, but chose not to.
Oh, and here’s the deal, I’m not even religious, so none of these cases involving religion have much emotional content for me; I just think people’s freedom of association should be respected. Indeed. And also, this.
But of course when leftists don’t want to provide a service to non-leftists, that should be honored.
Update (20170125): From (one of )Ace(‘s morons):
It’s this [Memories Pizza] that sent me to a place from which I’ll never return. I literally don’t care what Donald Trump does because nothing he can do is worse than what they’ve already done.
