CBN: A woman was blocked from early voting near Austin, Texas, last week after wearing a T-shirt that said "Vote the Bible." A pro-family group called Texas Values said election workers told resident Kay Hill at the Taylor City Hall polling place in Williamson County her shirt was quote "offensive." She was told to turn the shirt inside out, go home and change, or cover up the words "Vote the Bible." Hill tried to disagree but was eventually forced to cover up her Bible message. Poll workers reportedly provided a jacket for her to wear over the shirt. (continue at Breitbart, see video, hat tip SBY News)
There is a lot to be said a bout this and a lot of questions. First, why would this woman allow the poll workers to keep her from voting, why would she take the jacket and put on over her t-shirt?
I would have called the police, made a huge scene, and I sure would not have covered my t-shirt. If we start covering a t-shirt with the bible on it, or the word Bible, what is next? What is the next thing to offend.
Had this been a Muslim with a head scarf, would the worker have been offended? And if so, would she have refused to let the person vote?
Would any poll worker express offense at any other religious symbol? Of course not.
