|Chapel in Brittany with bullet holes|
So I started messing about with the comments section on the blog because I was getting lots of spam. Suddenly and for no particular reason that I can see.
In the process I turned off comments altogether – but now it is fixed – but I have to confirm each comment before it is posted.
I really don’t like doing this but I am sick of these sniveling chicken shit little toe rags who infest the blogosphere.
May their turds be pineapples.
Indiana has just proposed – and the legislation has passed – a bill that allows people to actively discriminate against gays and lesbians and those other ghastly people who are not like ‘us’.
The proposal was approved with a vote of 40-10. Oh surprise – the Republicans are the 40 – and can do anything they damn well please.
The law means that – because of a person’s religious views – they can refuse to bake a cake for a gay couple. They can refuse a gay couple a room – they can refuse them service at a state government counter – they can ostracize them from any and all activities that they like.
There was a proposal by the Democrats that anyone who used this privilege would have to put up a sign saying something like ‘Gays not welcome here’ but I don’t think this got up. The bigots who discriminate do not want to be identified.
This in 2015.
Actually there is a time zone difference. In Indiana it is 1915.
However – there is a new wrinkle. There has been a great hue and cry and the Indy Star said today
“The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) has sent a letter to Gov. Mike Pence threatening to cancel its 2017 convention in Indianapolis if he signs controversial legislation that could allow business owners to refuse services to same-sex couples.
"Our perspective is that hate and bigotry wrapped in religious freedom is still hate and bigotry," Todd Adams, the associate general minister and vice president of the Indianapolis-based denomination, told The Indianapolis Star.”
