Oh cool I’m a fraudster in Oklahoma. “Citing the Bible, Judge Bill Graves says transgender men and women are changing their names for ‘fraudulent purposes’”
This only has 6 notes because… Why? This is important people.
Yeah, when people bitch about how backward-ass Texas is, I always point them to one state north. Because shit like this.
Oklahoma County district judge Bill Graves, a former state legislator, cited the Bible in disallowing the name changes
‘It is notable Genesis 1:27-28 states: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female he them. And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth.”
‘The DNA code shows God meant for them to stay male and female.’
Tell me again why groups like Freedom From Religion are unnecessary. Please, remind me about how all this church-state separation stuff was solved years ago and that we should all drop it now, please. Now is the fucking time to speak up.

one of the many astounding collages by Meg Hitchock made by cutting letters from various books, including the Koran and Rushdie’s “Satanic Verses”. Highly recommend checking the rest of the collection on her site, where you can also see the detailed versions of each piece.
In my text drawings I deconstruct the word of God by cutting letters from sacred writings and rearranging them to form a passage from another holy book. I may cut letters from the Bible and reassemble them as a passage from the Koran, or use letters cut from the Torah to recreate an ancient Tantric text. The individual letters are glued to the paper in a continuous line of type, without spaces or punctuation, in order to discourage a literal reading of the text.
