Clergy Rebukes Media for Asking Wrong Questions About Amendment One

Uploaded by Eric Preston - May 6, 2012

In a press conference held in Greensboro, North Carolina, Clergy from around the state gathered together to pray for the wisdom of its citizens regarding the May 8th vote on Amendment One.

In that conference, Rev. Dr. William J. Barber took the time to rebuke the media for asking the wrong questions regarding the amendment. Rev. Dr. William J. Barber, II is the President of the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP.

Sadly, the frightwingers, who were shown to be like the miscengenation fears of the past, won the day. I hope that state is obeying the law now. One of the clear wrongs here is that she is elected to follow the law, just as Kerry was given grief for respecting. Also Democrats do believe in law to prevent a return to Rex Lex. When the articles claim she is a Democratic Party supporter, she doesn't support the platform.

Increasingly, the attack on women and minorities is being done through the private sphere. That is easier when it includes privatization. The Hobby Lobby has been buying up hospitals and schools to convert them into RW religious enforcers. They funded anti-same sex laws in the various states that passed them and fund movements to stop women from not just abortion, but getting birth control.

Our governors got involved to stop pharmacists from denying women morning after pills based on their 'beliefs.' The governor had to intervene against the attempted buy out of a rural hospital by a religious group that would have been able to deny women legal healthcare for lack of alternatives in the private hospital.

The RWNJs are increasing and so are the churches. They swallow all the lies from media and pastors. This battle is going to go on for a long time, these folks are doubling down. I suspect they're being paid for it, too.
