Poor Varvel is afraid he won’t be able to use his guns to defend his right to use his religion as an excuse to discriminate against the gays.
Since when is opposing discrimination a violation of moral law?
More right wing lies, what a surprise. Covid spreading election rigging racist child imprisoning golden dictator idol worshiping Right wingers have no rights to criticize others about moral law.
What’s wrong Gary? afraid of being treated like a minority?
Varvel, as other Radical Rong-wing types is completely unable to distinguish his “religious freedom” from my choices. And as for “moral law”… well, from my perspective, there are some moral imperatives, but they aren’t touched at all by the equality act: Same issue as before: What you want to do, consensually, is only “moral” if he would be comfortable doing it himself. Then off in the distance, he’s telling us that “cancel culture” (a GQP myth in itself) is eroding the 1st amendment (even if it were a real thing, it wouldn’t impact 1st amendment rights). And of course, he’s all het up about the idea that we should actually DO something to modify all the firearms engendered killing. Because he’s sure that the 2nd amendment has only the second clause…
No one is stopping people from praying or going to church. What is happing, is people are finally standing up to the christians pushing their religion on others.
Gary-Boi is easily triggered by something that will not effect him at all!!
The problem with the religious wrong, they forget that we are also protected from religion.
The only way to have freedom of religion is to have freedom from religion. That is why the founders declared that America was not a country ruled by religion, nor could a State religion be formed or declared.
I guess Varvel thinks some people deserve to be more equal than others, and any attempt at leveling the playing field is an infringement on his “equality”.
the right is back to caring about morals now? or rather -back to pretending to care
Religious freedom = Bigotry
But treason, insurrection, and bigotry from the Republicans are just fine.
Varvel once again spews forth with the GOP meme of the dead. No facts, all meme. Or is that all hat and no cattle? Either way, pretty tiresome.
Varvel isn’t happy unless people live in fear of being attacked because others think that they are different. He fails to realize that the Equality Act protects him just as much as it protects the people he feels disobey “Moral Law".
That’s the thing about equality; you can’t get too much equality because equality means equal.
Imposing and supporting “moral laws” is a Republican thing that dates back centuries to the rise of the Judeo-Christian ethic. They happily and piously embrace them. Where they cringe and run for cover is when laws address ethics, the latter being nearly entirely absent in their part.
Seriously? After supporting tiny, and trying to overturn an election that his fearless leaders own AG said was fair, he has the nerve to talk about morality, and the first amendment? Yea, this is classic Varvel. It’s only freedom for the far right. No one else qualifies.
He’s so silly.
It appears that ‘Varvel’ is another word for ‘Hypocrite.’
More unresearched and unreasoned BS from Gary. Get your news from somewhere other than Fox, OANN, and NewsMax, take a basic civics and government course, and question everything. It might help you.
Very Garbled toons are only useful as a window into just how far the right, oops I mean wrong, wing has left reality and good sense in the dust.
Varvel; the leader in alternative reality.
Oh, Lordy, the alt-right is so scared of all people being treated equally under the law.
The first Amendment has been restricted (can’t scream “fire” in a crowded theater, can’t incite to riot) for the safety of the general public. Seems to me the second amendment should be subject to similar restrictions: No bump stocks, no automatic weapons that have the sole purpose of killing human beings.
If this wasn’t so ignorant it would be laughable! Good Ol’ Gary supported the orange scourge while he determinedly dismantled the Constitution and the Bill of Rights (except of course, the 2nd amendment) and he takes a swipe at anyone trying to realize some equality. Pfffttt-Gary-go suck a lemon, it will make you feel better
If by “religious freedom” you mean “My freedom to discriminate against other people,” please stop pretending that your religion has anything to do with Jesus o Nazareth.
I’ve said it before: Because of the 1st amendment, the law is not about morality — that is a religious concern. The law is about social justice. It is supposed to protect individuals and society. We can use the law to do that but when we expect it to satisfy moral concerns it calls too much on juries and judges. Neither of them can do it perfectly. We would be better served, to focus attention on public health and public safety. Forget “law and order” as that has become a synonym for “lock em up”. The consequences have been expensive to society and have not protected much of anyone.
Let me see if I got this right: Mr. Varvel published a cartoon which tells us that the 1st Amendment has been taken from him. And, yet, we can see this cartoon. Did Mr. Varvel lie to us?
Although nobody has actually taken the 1st and 2nd amendments away, still surprised to see a Trumper upset about demolishing the Statue of Liberty – Trump indicated that it is a false and bad beacon to immigrants…
Varvel begins every cartoon with the question “How have liberals made the sky fall today?” Oops. Before that, he puts on blinders so that evidence of Republican insurrection, Trump’s immorality and McConnell’s fence straddling won’t impact his thinking.
“Censorship of people by Big Tech is “probably the biggest problem that we face right now in this country. People being kicked off websites such as Facebook and Twitter leave them without ‘a communications architecture’ and struggling to communicate.”
Great irony here, with Varvel seeming to bewail the implied destruction of a symbol that he himself usually attacks.
I keep looking at this, and I just don’t get this illustration. Logic says that an equality act would, in reality, support our Amendments, including free speech, the Second Amendment ( with reasonable oversight such as licensing), and your right to practice your religion INCLUDING non-Christian ones. An Equality Act would BE an act of morality, instead of the selective omission of many Americans because of gender, religion, age, or race.
Carvel, I am assuming, is not an idiot, but he obviously thinks his fan base is stupid enough to believe this bull.
Gary, religious freedom means just that….freedom to practice YOUR religion. It does not mean you have the freedom to make judgements about others’ faith. Nor does it give you the right to inflict your morality upon others. Here’s a fun fact: If there is a God who will, in the fullness of time, judge all of us, then my understanding of the Christian faith, is that judgement should be left to the omniscient one. So, if you believe abortion is against the laws of your faith, then have enough faith that those who have the operation and/or sin in other ways that offend you, will be judged. In the mean time stop trying to inflict your morality and ‘faith’ upon others.
And Gary, you would do well to learn the poem at Liberty’s feet: Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,With conquering limbs astride from land to land;Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall standA mighty woman with a torch, whose flameIs the imprisoned lightning, and her nameMother of Exiles. From her beacon-handGlows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes commandThe air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!” cries sheWith silent lips. “Give me your tired, your poor,Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,I lift my lamp beside the golden door!” Your country has become far removed from these lofty ideals.
I hope to live long enough to see the privileged status given to religion over the Constitution and the rights of people end.
John Oliver started a religion; he was shocked at how easy it was. He discontinued it when some of his viewers sent in sperm when he asked for “seed money”. I’d like to see him resurrect his religion and make one of the tenets that you can fire, evict, block education and deny services to people that support Trump because of the bigotry and hatred they spread.
Voted for Trump and talks about morals.
Varvel, you can talk, but nobody with any sense will listen.
Evil left wingers destroying America and putting China first. Way to go Joe. How’s those gas prices doing for you liberals?
Gary Varvel should be put in a home for the insane…
Isn’t Gary risking being an oxymoron without the oxy.
Animal Farm anyone? “Some animals are more equal then others” Sound familiar
Gary is getting irrelevant, like Sarah Palin, remember her?? When you consistently render crappy, ill-considered, irony resistant “material” like this, a lot shows through, of your obsessions.
Equality equals an attack on moral law and religious freedom? Sketchy logic. Plantation owners made the same argument against abolition.
“Youtube suspends account for bring up arrests for election fraud.”
Youtube is removing any video’s mentioning trump and suspending the account that posted the video.
