Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

  • Supreme Court Rejects Cases Challenging Law LGBT Groups Call ‘Worst in the Nation’

    A law in Mississippi called the Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act, enacted in April 2016, notes that the state can not punish citizens, public servants, businesses, and religious institutions who oppose same-sex marriage, homosexuality and transgender rights.

    It is the "worst" law in the nation, according to some LGBT groups, who were hoping the Supreme Court would strike it down. They received bad news Monday when the Court turned away challenges from Barber v. Bryant and Campaign for Southern Equality v. Bryant.

    A federal district judge issued a preliminary injunction against the law in June 2017, an act which the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit quickly reversed.

    “HB 1523 fails to honor the tradition of religious freedom in America — instead, it allows people to use religion as a license to discriminate," according to Masen Davis, CEO of Freedom for All Americans. "The LGBTQ community remains in harm’s way every single day that this law is in effect, and we are committed to working with our legal partners to strike this draconian measure once and for all.”

    This is good for Mississippi. It would have been better if the Supreme Court would have heard the case and ruled in favor of the Mississippi law, which preserves freedoms that we're accustomed to in the USA.
