Texas Senate To Protect Religious Rights Of Lawyers, Doctors

Published

on

AUSTIN, TEXAS — The current legislative session began with a heartbeat bill banning inanticide in the Lone Star State, and is now quickly succeeded by Senate Bill 17, expanding religious licensing exemptions to totally new professional categories.

The proposed legislation will simply prohibit state licensing agencies from adopting rules or policies that limit a professional’s free exercise of religion — including denying or revoking a license for actions taken according to a “sincerely held religious belief.”

Recently, a clerk in a neighboring Bible-belt state of Kentucky was jailed and illegally fined by the courts for refusing to issue gay marriage licenses; her 1st Amendment was made a “teachable moment.”

Sen. Perry’s bill is arguably an extension of the “Texas Privacy Act” passed last session, and is mirrored by the rulings and opinions given by Texas Attorney Gen. Ken Paxton on the sanctity of marriage — specifically the right of state employees to deny gay couples marriage licenses on the basis of “sincerely held religious belief.”

“Living our faith does not stop when we start to work,” Sen. Charles Perry, R-Lubbock, the bill’s author, told the Senate State Affairs Committee during a hearing Monday.

Texas Rep. Briscoe Cain, R-Deer Park, introduced companion legislation to Perry’s providing for that individuals may decline to participate in gay marriage ceremonies and refuse to provide goods or services to same-sex couples (cake, comes to mind.)

A dozen clergy members opposed the bill, , including Rabbi Nancy Kasten of Dallas, who said living according to religious beliefs “should never be confused with permission to use faith as a weapon against those who do not share those beliefs.”

John Stuart Mill — a widely referenced 18th Century English phiolosopher — once said, “Your right to swing your fist ends where my nose begins.” That is the principle animating current legislative efforts to defend religious freedom.

SB 17 is one of Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick’s top priorities reportedly, and the native Houstonian has a reputation for successful passage of values-based legislation, in spite of past opposition of  state House leadership — which is likely to be nonexistent this session.

FLASHBACK: Man Arrested at Bill Gates’ Estate for Allegedly Exchanging Child Porn

Published

on

In late December 2014, police arrested a Seattle man at Bill Gates and Melinda Gates’ mansion for allegedly compiling more than 6,000 child rape photos.

Rick Allen Jones was employed as an engineer at the Gates’ home and was accused of trading pornography images though Gmail.

He was charged with possession of child pornography.

At the time, the 51-year-old man had been collecting child porn for a decade, according to a report from King County prosecutors.

In 2013, investigators started investigating Jones.

They were able to track him down in March 2014 after he shared a suspicious image on Gmail.

Investigators initially failed to find Jones at his Ballard, Washington apartment. However, police ended up finding Jones at Gates’ estate.

It should be noted none of the crimes actually took place at the Gates mansion.

As Jones was talking to law enforcement at the Gates’ estate, three other detectives obtained a search warrant for Jones’ in Ballard.

At the apartment, the authorities found more than 6,000 images of grisly child porn and rape, 133 of which were children identified by police. On June 19, 2015, Jones plead guilty to felony possession of child pornography and failing to report child pornography.

He was sentenced to 90 days at King County jail, which was accompanied by two years of probation — a complete slap on the wrist when compared to similar cases.

Gates has been a leading proponent of globalist causes in the last few decades.

He is currently spearheading a movement to bring mass vaccination to the U.S. to fight the Wuhan Virus.

One of the nastier secrets of these elites are their alleged connections to vast pedophile rings.

Although there’s no concrete evidence to implicate Gates as a member of these networks, it is rather curious that an employee of his would get caught up in such activities and receive a light sentence.
