Yes, it is always about abortion. It is always about the politicians of Kansas putting their religion before their country. It is about being Christian first, and American second. It is about shoving privileged, selected religious values down the throats of women whose resources are demonized and shut down to restrict their ability to act on their freedom. Kansas has no interest in allowing women to make their own critical decisions about their own lives at a very important critical time that the law of the land states is only theirs to make. Even when the law of the land is clear in keeping religious zealots OUT of women's lives, Kansas cannot resist interfering with a woman's freedom to her own life by proxy.

No intentional lies here, they just come naturally to Kline. His Bible told him so.

Kennedy addressed those concerns before a skeptical audience of Protestant clergy. The following is a transcript of Kennedy's speech

"Kline is a visiting assistant professor at Liberty University School of Law. Dean Mathew Staver told the News & Advance that Kline is a well-liked professor who clearly loves teaching, and the case won’t affect his position at the school."

Given Liberty's leanings, it goes without saying the case won't affect his position. I'm sure they've already had a school-wide function honoring his "martyrdom".
