What is the matter with these people?

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.”

How refreshing.


  1. No comment.

    But at least I can, again!

  2. That is strange legislation for a modern society.

  3. The law would allow discrimination against anyone, not just gays, right? As long as your reason is 'religious'. Let's go back to not serving black people, either. Or non-believers. Or people who don't own guns.

  4. Read minutes ago that "Indiana is battling the worst outbreak of HIV in history" (WP)

  5. esb: It is a very conservative state.

    NanU: Yes - that is one of the many problems.
