If I join a religion that requires me to have sex with 3 different women every day-does the company have to provide me the women and sex rooms for me to practice my religion?
No. America has never had freedom of religion. It has only had state-sponsored privileged religions.
For example, I was raised in a religion whose god stated explicitly "thou shalt not kill" and had a severe prohibition on violence, direct or indirect. So paying taxes that funded a military used to kill people in offensive wars and actions is a clear violation of my religious beliefs. Yet, I had no choice but to pay taxes that funded the murder of millions of people. Clearly, my religious beliefs had given me zero exemption from the law that a third of your income must go to taxes of which half goes to mass murder. So why should the religious belief that gay people should not have cake at their weddings or Muslims can take prayer breaks get any special treatment either?
The rape and abduction charges were soon dropped and the prosecutor agreed to have all charges expunged. Despite this favorable outcome, I now had to face $60,000 in attorney’s fees, on top of the fact that I lost a semester’s worth of school as I was unable to salvage any credits. And nothing could compensate for my suffering during six days in jail.
The arresting officers should get a minimum of 1 year in prison as well as having to pay the victim $60,000 in restitution, $10,000 per day in jail. Additionally, those officers should be fired, lose their pensions, and be banned from law enforcement work for life.
The prosecutor should be disbarred and should also pay the victim $60,000 in restitution.
The woman who falsely accused the man of rape should be sentenced to the maximum sentence the man faced because of her false accusations.
Finally, all of the legal and other related expenses of the victim should be paid from the police pension fund so as to strongly discourage such behavior.
Do these things and shit like this will stop damn fast.
Woman accused of DWI claims sex assault by officer; body cam tells a different story.
Body cameras are great. They protect innocent police while confirming the actions of criminal cops. Any honest cop loves body cameras.
False accusations of crimes are at least as bad as the crimes alleged in a society that severely punishes crimes as a deterrent. False accusations should be punished at least as severely whether they come from the police or the public.
Audrey Hepburn: Massively influential cultural figure of the 20th century. An exquisite natural presence.
Taylor Swift: Tall, above-average-looking corn-fed suburban girl with considerable musical talent and an effectively infinite budget for personal trainers and makeup.
Like her or not, Taylor Swift is massively influential as well.
And yes, TS uses make up and maybe personal trainers, but as far as we know, she's 100% real unlike most celebrity women today and a lot of regular women today who have breast implants and other cosmetic surgery done as well as Botox injections.
you mean Sally Hemings? she was young, but what makes you think Jefferson raped her?
I meant lots of the founding fathers in general.
A slave, by definition, has no choices. A slave cannot refuse to work the field or any other command from his or her master. How can a slave be free to say no to sex with her master? What would the implied consequences be? Probably being whipped into submission. Sex between a slave master and a slave is not consensual. Even if the slave does not object, would she even be on the plantation if given a choice? She certainly knows that she and her family will be severely punished if she does not keep the master happy in all things. Slavery is founded on terrorism, on abject fear.
What I'm not willing to accept is those revenue streams going to a bunch of fat cat parasites who did not and could not create or maintain those automations and, in fact, don't even understand how those automations work.
Any opinion based on the assumption that I'm advocating communism or that communism and capitalism are the only two choices, when in fact they are virtually the same system, is not an opinion worthy of respect.
“respect must be earned,” bugs me, in the context of a manager to employee relationship — mainly because it can be misinterpreted and give license to immature or unscrupulous managers to treat people without respect.

You mean dignity, not respect. And yes, dignity should not have to be earned. Nor should consideration, empathy, or courtesy have to be earned. One can and should treat others with dignity, not just people who have earned respect. I think the disagreement in this thread is purely semantics, a result of humans using sloppy and imprecise language.
