The Republicans recently introduced a bill into the House of Representatives called the First Amendment Defense Act.

In a nutshell, it’s a bill that allows discrimination. Period.

Go ahead and spin it any way you want. Put an addendum on it. At the end of the day, it’s still a bill that allows and even encourages discrimination against same-sex marriage, including such telling phrases as:

(1) Leading legal scholars concur that conflicts between same-sex marriage and religious liberty are real and should be legislatively addressed…
(a) IN GENERAL.— Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the Federal Government shall not take any discriminatory action against a person, wholly or partially on the basis that such person believes or acts in accordance with a religious belief or moral conviction that marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman, or that sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage.

There’s more – if you’re interested, you can read the rest here. But be prepared for a lot of Republican balderdash.

“Tenho tentado dar passagem para o conhecimento de uma forma simples, procurando mostrar caminhos para uma espiritualidade prática. Nesse intento, estou trabalhando para ressignificar o conceito de “iluminação espiritual”. Tenho dito que estamos aqui única e exclusivamente para acordar o Amor desinteressado, pois esse Amor desperto é sinônimo de iluminação espiritual.”

"I have been trying to find a way to convey wisdom simply, building a path of practical spirituality. With this purpose, I am working to reframe the concept of spiritual enlightenment. We are here solely to awaken selfless love, as this awakened love is synonymous with spiritual enlightenment. "

Die Happily
There are three types of practitioners: practitioners of small capacity, who die without fear; practitioners of middle capacity, who die without regrets; and practitioners of the utmost capacity, who die happily.
