    Michigan vs. Rev. Jonas Moses by Jennifer Moses

    in Politics Progressive

    It appears that there is a conspiracy in Michigan to wrongly convict a Native American pastor, Jonas Moses. We interviewed his daughter, Jennifer. Apparently, Pastor Moses was set up on false child molestation charges. His daughter feels this was done by a former church member who demanded a return of the money he had paid into the church while a member. As a corrections officer, the former member seems to have the cooperation of the detective in this case. Charges were filed regarding two young people in the church. One is a 15-year-old foster child who has made similar accusations about three other men, all of whom were convicted. The second woman (now around age 20) used to date the disgruntled former member's son. Her mother testified that this young woman admitted to her parents that she was not truthful about Pastor Moses having assaulted her. Also hear Jennifer speak regarding her father's case at https://fccdl.in/LxNcvbsRu or by calling (605)562.0029, code 992212650, tape no. 67 (FreeConferenceCall.com).
    The Michigan Innocence Clinic lists causes of wrongful convictions: 1) Eyewitness Misidentification, 2) Junk Science, 3) False Confessions, 4) Government Misconduct, 5) Snitches, and 6) Bad Lawyering. There should be another category added for individuals who deliberately lie to authorities for reasons like jealousy, greed, reveange, and to gain attention. Fortunately, the weight of evidence favors Pastor Moses, and his case resulted in a hung jury in the first trial. Re-trial was scheduled for August 3-5, 2016. 
    Pastor Moses insisted he was never even alone with either alleged victim.
    "I'm a married man," testified Pastor Moses. When asked by the defense attorney if he loved his wife, Pastor Moses responded,  "Yes, these two hands have only touched my wife."

    Indiana's First Amendment Games

    in Politics Progressive

    With same-sex marriage battle lost — waiting only for the SCOTUS cymbal clap in June, wingers are pig piling on a new ploy. In numerous states, legislatures are pretending to protect religious freedom from the inevitable and fearful persecution from dem damn gays.
    I'll kick around Indiana's worst-in-class blunders in trying this ruse. 
    POTUS hopeful, Gov. Mike Pence (R, of course) signed a bill into law that pretty much lets anyone for any reason discriminate against LGBT potential customers. Poorly disguised as protecting citizen's First Amendment rights to exercise religion, it instead is an atavistic license to ignore statutes, case law and morality. 
    Pence seemed to figure the Hoosier lawmakers were being oh, so clever in patterning the bill after the 1993 federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act. Wrong there. The RFRA was yet another cowardly and ill-considered Pres. Bill Clinton effort to appease wingers.Yet Indiana's version is worse, even legislatively malignant.
    I'll get into the concepts of balancing exercise of religion with both commerce and respect as required by federal law. We can be very sure Pence and his minions are having similar discussions following the nationwide blowback to Indiana's overreach.
