For now, the whistleblower site is redirecting to a anti-choice site until they can find a permanent hosts that doesn’t mind religious zealots entering personal information that doesn’t belong to the persons doing the entering. The fact the whistleblower site is redirecting to an anti-choice site proves it’s purely political. Being that is is religious, it should have no function with government, city, state, or federal. There’s this thing in the United States Constitution that knuckle-dragging fundamentalists find very inconvenient that says something about separation between church and state.”
