Ken Paxton embraces a Christofascist version of Sharia Law


Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton says he would defend the states archaic anti-sodomy law if the conservative Supreme Court takes aim at LGBTQ rights next.

Paxton, an arch-conservative Republican who is running for reelection, said he would defend the hateful law if the top court overturns its decision legalizing same-sex intimacy, a very real possibility after the justices nixed the constitutional right to privacy by overturning Roe v. Wade.

My job is to defend state law, and Ill continue to do that, Paxton said. Im certainly willing and able to do that. ...............(more)

2. Told everyone that too

 

A few years ago, when the battle cry seemed to be "NO SHARIA LAW!" even though there was no evidence of any actual Sharia Law in the US - but they were pushing the Christofascist version of Sharia Law.

"Ohh.. So is Sharia Law okay when it's wrapped in a Bible? Because while you're screaming 'No Sharia Law!' some people are working hard to give us Christian extremism..."

It's okay if you're a Christian, I guess.

As for defending state law? WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO PRISON, PAXTON?! Just as I don't fucking want to hear lectures on marriage from Drumpf, I don't want to hear lectures about laws from a felon.

LOCK HIM UP.
