Another member of the city council says he shares the mayor's views about race because "“I’m a Christian and my Christian beliefs are you don’t do interracial marriage. That’s the way I was brought up and that’s the way I believe,” he said. “I have black friends, I hired black people. But when it comes to all this stuff you see on TV, when you see blacks and whites together, it makes my blood boil because that’s just not the way a Christian is supposed to live”
I wonder if any of these "Christian" fucksticks have ever read Galatians 3:28.

Well that's one way to get national media attention.

Irrelevant blasphemy -- it says in Jesus there is no male or female, no slave or free ... but doesn't say a damned thing about black or white! Checkmate, liberal!

Elsewhere in my lovely new adopted home state:
A Haralson County corrections officer accused of being a white supremacist has been suspended with pay pending an investigation.

The investigation of jailer Trent East, a member of a pagan group called Ravensblood Kindred, reverses an earlier determination by Haralson County Sheriff Eddie Mixon that East didn’t present a danger....

The mayor of a mostly-white Georgia town about 50 miles from Atlanta allegedly withdrew a candidate from consideration for a city administrator job "because he is black, and the city isn’t ready for this" (exact quote).

Another member of the city council says he shares the mayor's views about race because "“I’m a Christian and my Christian beliefs are you don’t do interracial marriage. That’s the way I was brought up and that’s the way I believe,” he said. “I have black friends, I hired black people. But when it comes to all this stuff you see on TV, when you see blacks and whites together, it makes my blood boil because that’s just not the way a Christian is supposed to live” (another exact quote).

This state is downright schizophrenic. I live not merely in suburban Atlanta, but in a quote-unquote "majority minority" neighborhood, so whatever other complaints one might make about my immediate vicinity, at least you do NOT see Confederate or swastika flags, or MAGA hats or 14/88 shit around here -- but drive 20 or so miles away and things are radically different. I had an acquaintance who lived in the city of Snellville -- definitely a much "better neighborhood" than mine, as measured by crime stats, property values or any other metric, yet the man living directly across the street from her, in a neighborhood of nice middle-class single-family homes, had a Confederate battle AND a swastika flag on display in his yard. (And this was AFTER the Nazi rally in Charlottesville, too.)

The most baffling thing about the lawsuit is the amount at question. Like it seems like there’s at least one zero missing from this.

I'd go for two missing zeros. At $75k, the hospital's lawyer would be telling them to "Write the check now and get it in her hands yesterday."

I said at least. $75K is a fucking steal.
