The Equality Act Strips Rights

“It’s punishment for us. That’s what the Equality Act is. It’s punishment against people of faith.”
“It strips away our First Amendment rights & the RFRA (Religious Freedom Restoration Act) protections are extinguished.”
~ Michele Bachmann
Politician, Minnesota Senate 52nd District (2003-2007), Minnesota Senate 56th District (2001-2003) & United States House of Representatives (2007-2015)

Style-of-Life Lies

“Euphemisms persist (for some people) because lying
is an indispensable part of making life tolerable.”
~ Bergen Evans,
Professor of English, TV Show Host,
& George Foster Peabody Award (1957)

Relabeling

“Users of clichés frequently have more sinister intentions beyond laziness and conventional thinking.
Relabeling events often entails subtle changes of meaning.
War produces many euphemisms, downplaying or giving verbal respectability
to savagery and slaughter.”
~ Patrick Cockburn,
Author, Journalist, Correspondent, Martha Gellhorn Prize (2005),
James Cameron Prize(2006) & Orwell Prize for Journalism (2009)
