    I think that the criticisms of it are going to backfire. It’s basically an evangelical sect of the Church. Protestant evangelicals will view it more positively than they view Catholicism. :twocents:

    its more than that. You are assigned a partner who basically co-decides your life and for women they were always called handmaiden. Lets just hope her handmaiden says she shouldnt take the job

    With the caveat that I’m in no way defending or normalizing it, there’s no “co-deciding” one’s life. It’s more like a formal religious lay mentorship.

    The only thing it has in common with The Handmaid’s Tale is that it used to have a role for women called “Handmaid,” which is a biblical reference to Mary.

    the amount of americans in a religious group similar to hers or speaking in tongues or other bizarre shit is way higher than you'd think and the personal hit is not a politically productive line of attack

    People speak in tongues around here but apparently it's forbidden to speak in tongues unless someone is there to translate. I guess you can't start blabbering nonsense unless someone else is there to translate what it is you're saying

    Yeah. You try and get her to commit to recusing herself from any case related to the upcoming election that might come before the court. She won't. Then point that out to the public and label her a hack.

    They've already lost no matter what their argument is. They wouldnt get 51 if you could prove she was Heaven's Gate-level cultish. But you're right to stick to the process sham and drive turnout for the election. That's the only good that could come out of this.

    I like that Trump and his crew are floating out they'll let the court decide the election. Like what? That's not what they're there for. I realize they've done it before in a similar manner that gave the election to Bush but fuck
