OFFS
But Johnson, a freshman congressman (and vocal Trump supporter), dismissed opponents' concern that the measure would be used in ways he didn't intend it to be used. "In Scripture, Romans 13 refers to the governing authorities as 'God's servants, agents of wrath to bring punishment on the wrongdoer,'" he said in response to their floor concerns. "I, for one, believe we have a moral obligation, as any just government should, to defend the defenseless."
Weren't the GOP just complaining about EPA regulatory over-reach? What magic juice does he think prosecutors drink that make them models of good sense and discretion?

I believe it is called "Jesus Juice." Obviously, environmental regulators hate Jesus and his juice.

Nothing says Jesus like locking teenagers in a cage for 15 years! I totally remember how they said in the Scripture if you show someone your junk, it's off to the box for 15. It's in Leviticus, right after the part about burning animals for sin offerings, right?

Also remember the verse where Jesus called for he who is without sin to cast that first stone. And the House of Representatives, none of whom engaged in the sin of "sexting" when they were teens, stepped up to the plate and cast that first mutha.

Of course they didn't sext when they were teens.
They were all wanking themselves to bootleg copies of "Behind the Green Door."

So if that's 15 years what's "Playing Doctor"? 30 years? I mean the kids might even touch each other inappropriately.

Slightly off topic, is mooning someone now considered sexual assault?

Probably not, but if someone wanted to press charges it would likely be enough to trigger indecent exposure, which requires sex offender registration in some districts.

Not that cops and prosecutors would ever over-charge someone like that. :roll:

I could swear I read a story a few years ago about a high schooler mooning people from a bus that was initially charged with a crime that would have involved getting on the registry but I can't find anything

(I did find the kid that exposed his junk in a group yearbook photo, and could have gotten registered for it)

Young people's sexuality and the WoD are the two Socon obsessions that get a lot of buy-in from many of the Team Blue chattering class.
