John Fleming

Conservatives are done waiting on GOP leadership to give them a vote.
The emerging dynamic between John Boehner and Mitch McConnell is one to watch, because it is heading for a showdown in the next few weeks. Sooner or later, one of them is going to have to cave in to the hard, cold reality that Republicans just do not have the votes to impose their will on a Democratic president.

I wrote a Shreveport Times column this week in an attempt to spark meaningful conversation about poverty and health care in Louisiana. What I never expected was that my column would become Dr. Fleming's springboard for announcing he has moderated his abortion access position.
One of the speakers at this year's National Character & Leadership Symposium was Kelly Shackelford, the President & CEO of the Liberty Institute, which describes itself as "the largest legal organization dedicated solely to defending and restoring religious liberty in America."

Back in June, when the House passed its first version of the FY14 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA), the anti-gay crowd was doing a victory dance over the fact that the House version of the bill included Rep. John Fleming's (R-LA) so-called "religious freedom" amendment.
If service members so afraid of being "out" as Christians that they're afraid to even go church, then how can there be so many service members attending worship services that the military needs to build mega-church size chapels to accommodate the large crowds?
Republicans can pummel their own party if they want to, but what's amazing is that 18 of them in the Senate and 144 in the House voted against restoring government services and paying America's debts.
Talk about missing the point. And no, I do not refer to the mindless mainstream media (who apparently don't know the difference between "a filibuster" and "a 21-hour ego trip").
The primary mission of this so-called "religious freedom" coalition is to protect the "right" of anti-gay Christians in the military to continue to discriminate against and harass LGB service members in a post-DADT and post-DOMA military.
As the old saying goes, politics makes strange bedfellows, and one of the big political issues currently making these strange bedfellows is the issue of gays in the military.
Since the repeal of DADT, the stakes in the battle over religious freedom for our men and women in uniform have become much higher, and as the stakes have gotten higher, the lies have gotten bigger.
Yeah, right. Now go back and read this post reversing Christians and gays because that, of course, is what Rep. Fleming's amendment will do.
