We'll leave it to our readers to decide whether some Christians who wanted to hold a Bible Study were lying, or whether it was the DOR employees who would get in trouble if they admitted denying them.
What "DOR employees?" These Bible-hating state workers exist only in Chewie's imagination, it seems.
The facts of this case, as laid out by New Times in our previous posts, show Chewie's "Christians" were either lying or had their heads shoved so far up their Bibles they didn't know what they were talking about. A private firm runs the cafeterias at the Department of Economic Security and Department of Revenue, which -- by the way -- are both open to the public.
There's just no reason to think Chewie's extraordinary story of state discrimination is remotely correct.
