Atheists




History making Pres! No President in American history has ever golfed more per week than Donald Trump.  lol.  After criticizing Obama and saying "he would rarely leave the white house 'cause there was so much work to be done" (his exact words on video, not mine).    We've been had!  http://thehill.com/blogs/in-the-know/245884-trump-i-would-rarely-leave-the-white-house  or this one  


So many things now not our business.  Birth certificates, tax returns, names of visitors to White House.

Why must every lawyer on the other side of my litigation cases disagree with me?  After 46 years it's getting wearisome.

Wellesley Students Editors Endorse Silencing Opposing Speakers And Declare “Hostility May Be Warranted”

by jonathanturley
Formal_Seal_of_Wellesley_College,_Wellesley,_MA,_USA.svgWe have been discussing the erosion of free speech on our campuses across the country.  Much of that trend is the result of faculty members who have taught that free speech itself is a threat to students.  The erosion of free speech has come in stages.  First, schools began to declare speech to be hate speech while creating "safe zones" from the exercise of free speech.  Second, schools began to enforce the ill-defined "microaggressions" to punish speech that is deemed as contributing to hostile environments or fostering stereotypes.  Now, faculty and students are increasing declaring opposing views as simply outside of the definition of free speech. That extreme argument was advanced this week by the editors of The Wellesley News who published a column entitled “Free Speech Is Not Violated At Wellesley.”  It is chilling message from the Editorial Board composed of Co-Editors in Chief Sharvari Johari and Michele Lee and opinion editors Maya Nandakumar, Genae Matthews, and Tabitha Wilson.  Once the champions of free speech, students have become the new censors and have adopted the perfectly Orwellian notion that the protection of free speech requires the denial of free speech. Read more of this post

Closet Atheists: Study Suggests That The Number of Atheists In United States May Be As High As 26 Percent

by jonathanturley
socrates-1There is an interesting study out this week by two University of Kentucky researchers that the number of atheists may be twice as large as previously estimated.  The number may be closer to 26 percent -- an fascinating prospect given the politics surrounding faith-based initiatives and policies.  As I have previously discussed, both parties have courted the religious vote and largely ignored the sizable number of Americans who are either agnostic or atheist.  That number may be finally reaching a political tipping point for office holders to heed their preferences for secular government and the separation of church and state.  We have previously discussed studies indicating that one out of four Americans may not believe in God. This study would seem to support those earlier estimates.

Trump Calls Erdogan To Congratulate Him On Winning Referendum Giving Him Virtually Dictatorial Powers

by jonathanturley
donald_trump_president-elect_portrait_cropped220px-Recep_Tayyip_ErdoganThe world has condemned the referendum that narrowly gave near dictatorial powers to Turkish President ­Recep Tayyip Erdogan. Not only was the government accused of tampering with the close results, but the referendum represents the final demise of democracy in Turkey.  Erdogan is also responsible for destroying the separation of church and state.  However, Erdogan did get one call of congratulations . . . from the President of the United States.
