Have nothing to do with the [evil] things that people do, things that belong to the darkness. Instead, bring them out to the light... [For] when all things are brought out into the light, then their true nature is clearly revealed...

Supreme Court: “Involuntary Servitude” OK in New Mexico

Slavery by Another Name

Monday’s decision by the Supreme Court not to consider a New Mexico Supreme Court ruling could have vastly greater consequences than just hurting a photographer in Taos.

When Elaine Huguenin received an email request to shoot a same-sex “wedding” in the summer of 2006, her polite reply sent Vanessa Willock over the edge. Doing the shooting was against her religious beliefs, said Huguenin, but

Supreme Court lets stand New Mexico Court Ruling in sex Discrimination case

New Mexico Supreme Court

On Monday the Supreme Court declined to hear on appeal the case of Elane Photography v. Willock, giving tacit approval of the ruling by the New Mexico Supreme Court.

She even praises him while he’s riding through a battlefield filled with the corpses of young men who “died for freedom”:

The most poignant evocation of war shows Lincoln riding through a field of ripped and rotting corpses, and Lincoln takes off his stovepipe hat in homage to the dead, North and South and Americans all. This is not a hymn to “arms and the man” so much as a long mournful dirge played on the strings of banjos, fiddles and the keys of a parlor piano. It’s as gritty and earthbound as the America of Mark Twain.

Tom DiLorenzo takes a vastly different view, and he has done his homework. It’s too bad that Fields apparently isn’t aware of how slanted and disingenuous Spielberg’s movie really is.  Here’s what DiLorenzo thinks about the movie. He
