There’s nothing remotely moral about conservatism

Today is Sunday.

For people of all faiths, more likely than not, you’ll see churches packed today.

Which means that today, which is Sunday, is the day I rat out Christian hypocrisy from those who want to unconstitutionally surveil welfare recipients and the poor, and what they do with THEIR OWN MONEY.

You read that right: the money the welfare recipients receive is THEIR OWN MONEY – because welfare recipients pay taxes (i.e. sales taxes) to support everyone else, just like everyone else pays some sort of tax around this nation, although people on welfare can least afford to pay any kind of tax (and yet, they do pay some taxes).

So, yes, it is unconstitutional to tell welfare recipients what they can or cannot do with the money they receive!

Laws telling welfare recipients what they can or cannot do with their money are flagrant 14th Amendment violations.  And really, I can stop at that sentence, but I won’t.  This is an issue of equal protection under the law and by telling an economic class what they can or cannot do with their money while not imposing these standards on other economic groups is unconstitutional on its face and under no circumstances will I support such laws – it’s the main reason why I oppose drug testing for welfare recipients, it’s the main reason why I strongly oppose a federal law enacted by anti-human rights Christians that bans welfare recipients from going to adult establishments with their benefits, and it is the main reason why I strongly oppose laws like what anti-human rights Christians in Kansas and Missouri have passed within the past couple of weeks.  The equal protection clause is also the reason why it’s very hard for me to oppose the Soda Tax that New York City used to have before unqualified judicial activists struck the ordinance down.  There is one thing that separates the Soda Tax from the abusive and unconstitutional laws that abusive Christians are passing on the most vulnerable people in our society: the Soda Tax applied to everyone equally without regard to where a person stood on the economic ladder, whereas these repulsive laws against welfare recipients are discriminatory because it applies to one set of the economic ladder and no one else. It would behoove supporters of these laws against welfare recipients to read the Constitution’s 14th Amendment:

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

No where in that statement does it mention gender or sexual orientation.  What that means is that this section, known as Section 1, is intended to have the broadest of interpretations out of the entire Constitution.  If trial lawyers had a backbone, they would have sued to knock every law against welfare recipients off the books, no matter how deeply unpopular such a move may be.  And that’s the beauty of our Constitution: popular laws have no place in the US Constitution unless such laws are applied in an equal and fair manner.  So while laws restricting what welfare recipients can or cannot do are popular with Christians, such laws literally bomb the Constitution test and that alone is reason enough to sue to remove the laws right off our books.

This proves that conservatives want to murder starving children by taking food out of their mouths.  This also proves that conservatives, despite all of their claims about being strong supporters of the US Constitution, actually have no respect whatsoever for our living document.

And lastly, this also proves that there is nothing moral about conservatism.  Not even remotely.
