Well, it IS Mississippi after all…
The return of the “We Don’t Serve Your Kind Law.“
Kansas again is looking at codifying the right to discriminate into law, presumably to protect Christians running secular business on main street from having to serve icky gay people. The new twist this time is that is going to include Public Employees, so you know, if the Fire Fighters who thinks the sodomite’s house should burn down, will let it burn, or if the Paramedics don’t want to touch the gay, well, they don’t have to. The Librarian wouldn’t have to check out books, and I suppose teachers could refuse students.
Kansas Governor Brownback continues to defy a Federal Judge’s order to recognize same-sex marriages in Kansas, so Vegas odds are really good that he would sign this bill if it should pass.
Just to prep you for the onslaught of your relatives tomorrow, here’s Crazy Unkka Pat giving us a Thanksgiving homily: equal rights for the ‘mos is destroying this country!
For the first time in its history, Procter & Gamble is openly supporting same-sex marriage.
The Cincinnati-based consumer products giant says it embraced gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender employees for more than 20 years. Now, the company says same-sex marriage has become an important enough issue to its workers that it is taking a public stand.
All the usual suspects that call for boycotts of products, services, entertainment are sure to react as P&G is one of the largest household brands. We’ve long kidded that Y’all Qaeda was going to end up living in a mud hut wearing rags and today’s announcement brings that bit of snark closer to truth.
We’ll monitor the reaction today and update as needed.
Our old pal, the unwed mother who founded the National Organization for Marriage (and then jettisoned in an escape pod after years of embarrassing herself) Maggie Gallagher must be in grieving as it becomes quite clear that her social engineering experiment and pity-party has failed. Marriage Equality has come to most of the United States, but it seems that NOM is no longer getting the donations that they require to keep the hate going:
According to analysis of the organization’s 2013 tax filings done by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), NOM raised $5.1 million in 2013, dropping by over 50% since 2012. Just 2 donors accounted for more than half of the organization’s funding – further evidence that everyday Americans have little interest in furthering NOM’s extremist agenda. In addition, the NOM Education Fund also dropped by nearly $3.5 million in funding — a drop of almost 70% since the previous year. NOM ended the year more than $2.5 million in debt.
What makes this situation even more delicious is that NOM has been fighting to keep their finances secret, and the Human Rights Campaign filed a complaint with the IRS to force NOM to comply with the law. Federal law requires organizations to publicly release their 990s the same day an in-person request is made, and the HRC showed up at their offices TWICE demanding access to their 990s, which revealed their poor economic performance.
“If I were Brian Brown, I’d be worried that my two or three mega-donors are soon going to come to terms with the fact that they’d largely be better off flushing money down the toilet. Americans certainly aren’t buying what NOM is selling, and it’s only a matter of time before the trickle of money keeping the lights on at NOM HQ dries up.”
We are not making this up: Charles Manson to wed.
It’s a traditional marriage: you know, one-celebrity-murderer/one-woman, just as Baby Jeebus intended.
According to CNN, the couple will not be able to consummate their marriage because lifers don’t get to have conjugal visits. Manson is 80 years old and Star, his bride-to-be is 26, so maybe sexytime wouldn’t have worked out anyway. As Jackie Mason once quipped, “If she dies, she dies.” Oops, maybe that’s not such a good joke?
As Y’all Qaeda tells us constantly, marriage is about the children. Allowing that heartthrob Manson to marry Star but not allowing him any hubba-hubba time to begat any children, California’s penal code is making a mockery of marriage!
I demand to see Matt Barber, Brian Brown, and all the other fetus-fondling god-botherers protesting.
TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Gov. Sam Brownback isn’t giving up on defending the state’s gay-marriage ban despite a U.S. Supreme Court ruling clearing the way for same-sex marriages in his state.
The court on Wednesday denied the state’s request to prevent gay and lesbian couples from marrying while Kansas fights the issue in court.
“I’m going to do to gay dudes what I’m doing to the rest of Kansas,” Brownback did not say. “Err, let me rephrase that.”
Senatorette Huckleberry Closetcase is either squealing with joy, or just squealing as U.S. District Judge Richard Mark Gergel rules that seething hotbed of unbridled lust South Carolina’s ban on gay marriage violates same-sex couples’ rights to equal protection and due process under the Fourteenth Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Jim Schneider of Voice of Christian Youth America, who seems a bit long in the tooth to be the spokesperson of Youth of any sort, has been thinking about pedophilia:
“Once you change that which is unchangeable, there’s no limit to how far you can go… What about an adult who says, ‘I want to marry this underage child. It’s discriminatory — I love this child, this child loves me, why can we not be married, that’s discriminatory.’”
Methinks Jim’s been thinking about pedo a little too much, if you know what I mean and I think you do.
Also, too: The blink of an eye? I cracked up at the 20-year blink.
That frothy mix of lube and fecal matter Rick Santorum believes that The Youte of Today would be down with hating on the ‘mos, if the Lavender Menace hadn’t silenced the Church:
“The arguments are being won among young people. We are losing in this particular area among young people not because we’re out there and competing, it’s because they have effectively silenced the church on a lot of those issues and young people don’t even know what the opposing view is on these issues.”
