Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

This morning in Bal'more, local radio show has discovered "Trump's religious exemption order". ( No word yet in the village about "Trump's religious ambassador to the world", Mr Brownback; still time to acquire yer hazmat gear.)

Outside group readies lawsuit on Trump's religious exemption order May 2017

Host and "experts" can barely acknowledge that Trump's executive order to DHHS and DoJ conforms with SCOTUS opinion and orders under Burwell v. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc., the religious freedom restoration act, and "conscience clause" exemptions adopted by 50+1% of US states.
< wipes tears >
More disturbing than even the living-dead-dispute, "IUD, abortifacient?", this cohort of interlocutors wants to --yet seems incapable of-- articulate a distinction between "moral" and "religious" doctrine/ethics/faith/belief/spirituality [?!!]; then there's the amoral dissenter claiming Trump's executive order is neither, but a "political stunt" ... because "american values" are all about "live and let live"; finally, a claim has advanced that no one can choose where he or she works.

Can't wait for Koontz v. Watson a/k/a Trial of The Covenant to hit the media in the kiester. Next year?

Way too many people in this country are nuts. They need more Russian spies to created division and chaos in THEIR MINDS.

Producers at WYPR turfed the religious freedom ambassador news to the next scheduled talk show "Mid-day"(after 1/2 hour of "Are computing devices adversely affecting 'our' cognitive abilities?!!"). Guest questions Brownback's fitness for office, comparative theology, and duty to US duty to protect "minority religious", not the office.

WAITING for any body to mention ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE of the US fucking Constitution ...
