While the official U.S. policy has long been that we don’t pay ransom to terrorists who kidnap American citizens, the Obama administration is working to find a way around this long-standing and eminently sensible stance.

GoFundMe doesn’t actually say Christians and conservatives need not apply, but it’s difficult not to wonder if that is the intent of their policy change.  In the past week, they have shut down the GoFundMe pages of two Christian-owned businesses who declined to participate in same-sex weddings.  HotAir reports:

White supremacy, white privilege, whatever you want to call it, it’s the attempt to “other” white people in America and to essentially blame all problems encountered by minorities on “white” power structures and on “white” justice systems.
