    One of the more startling portions of oral arguments today at the Supreme Court was the willingness of the Obama administration’s Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, to admit that religious schools that affirm marriage as the union of a man and a woman may lose their non-profit tax-exempt status if marriage is redefined.

    Justice Samuel Alito asked Verrilli whether a religious school that believed marriage was the union of husband and wife would lose their non-profit tax status.

    The solicitor general answered: “It’s certainly going to be an issue. I don’t deny that. I don’t deny that, Justice Alito. It is it is going to be an issue.”

    Well, 2017 will get here, since we know we have 7 years from the Anti-Christ appearance, BUT I'm not overly optimistic that "inauguration" 2017 will get here.

    As I am extremely cynical/pessimistic re: out political future, I fully believe we are now seeing a wave of "protests" that will lead to our fearless (among other adjectives :thumbs: ) leader to declare martial law and suspend the '16 elections.
