These alt-christians represent 0.002% of christianity, stop panicking over this abortion thing, everything will be fine.
Русский военный корабль, иди на хуй!
they represent the dominant faction of the USA's second political party. a polity of 350 million people are directly affected by their culture war bullshit, as well as the world's most geopolitically important nation. are the shariah-law hardliners represented by billionaires in the media and lobbyists on capitol hill? do the clerics of saudi arabia have such influence? what happens in the desert peninsula is of almost no consequence for any other nation on earth, not even their neighbours. america and her domestic politics quite obviously occupy a higher place in the order of things.

excerpt wrote:In the complaint, the EEOC says daily prayer meetings are part of Aurora's business model, though there is no reference to it on its web page. Attendance at the prayer meetings was mandatory for employees and was a condition of employment regardless of a worker's religious beliefs or affiliation, the complaint said.
On occasion, prayers were requested and offered "for poor performing employees who were identified by name," according to the complaint. Also, the complaint noted, the company owner took attendance and would reprimand employees who did not attend.
McGaha, who identifies himself as an atheist, was hired by the company on June 8, 2020. He said the prayer meetings, which initially lasted around 15 minutes, stretched in length to around 45 minutes and even longer. Saunders, who worked at Aurora from November 2020 until Jan. 21, 2021, describes herself as an agnostic. She also acknowledged that the prayer meetings became longer over time.
According to the complaint, McGaha said the longer the prayer meetings went, the less tolerable they became. He said he was asked on one occasion to lead the Christian prayer, which he refused. In late August 2020, he asked the owner of the company to be excused from those parts of the meeting that pertained to religion because of his conflict with it, but the owner refused and told him "it would be in his best interest to do so."
McGaha asked again in September to be excused. The complaint said the owner told him that he did not have to believe in God nor did he have to like the meetings but he had to participate. McGaha refused and he was fired, the complaint said. Before he was fired, the owner reduced his base pay from $800 to $400 and his commissions were withheld after his dismissal, the EEOC said.
In January 2021, Saunders stopped going to the prayer meetings because they conflicted with her religion. She was fired, the complaint said, adding that the owner told her she "was not a good fit" for the company.
Various religions are being allowed to operate outside the law right across europe, they don't particularly need it legislated, but I guess that will come.

But thats exactly the question the jewish lobby ask, and why Corbyn had to be replaced by Starmer.
