The headline really says it all, so let’s just jump right in.
1) White House press secretary: Hitler didn’t gas his own people.
We’re really at a loss here. This actually happened. In the White House. Thanks again, Electoral College:
There is really not anything funny about this. But there was something really funny about watching CNN’s Wolf Blitzer own Spicer later in the day. This is really worth watching, if you haven’t seen it:
2) NC GOP wants to ban gay marriage.
Well, that didn’t take long. The suit Neil Gorsuch wore to be sworn in as the nation’s newest member of the Supreme Court was likely still warm when a handful of Republican legislators filed this gem. From the INDY:
Peeved by that whole marriage equality thing, Republican Representatives Michael Speciale, Larry Pittman, Mike Clampitt, and Carl Ford introduced a bill today that would make gay marriage illegal again—defying the Supreme Court’s Obergefell v. Hodges decision that legalized gay marriage nationwide—because, God.
House Bill 780, or the “Uphold Historical Marriage Act,” would invalidate “marriages between persons of the same gender” by making same-sex marriage “null and void in the state of North Carolina.” Sticking with the separation of church and state philosophy, the bill says the Supreme Court’s decision “exceeds the authority of the court relative to the decree of Almighty God that ‘a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh’ (Genesis 2:24, ESV) and abrogates the clear meaning and understanding of marriage in all societies throughout prior history.”
You want Genesis, Mr. Speciale? We’ll give you Genesis.
There’s certainly more going on in the world worth mentioning, but Phil Collins is a closer. So, with that said, have a good one.
