“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another.” --John 13:34-35
The Black-Eyed Peas were right—something really is wrong with the world.
In particular I’m looking at Indiana and Virginia and their disgusting legislation that allows bigots to hide behind their alleged “religious beliefs” and refuse providing services to gay people.
Make no mistake, people, these atrocities are not laws; they’re hate crimes in drag. They give extremists a legal excuse to inflict their vile views on the rest of us.
It’s shocking that someone could actually invoke the name of Jesus Christ in defense of these horrible bills. They need to stop thumping the Bible and actually start reading it.
What would Jesus do? Not this bullshit, I can assure you.
I wonder what world these holy idiots live in where the biggest problem you face is making a cake for a gay wedding.
Must be great to live in a place where there’s no crime, no poverty, no homeless families, no sickness, and no pollution, a place where the only thing to fear are same sex coupkes.
I get so angry when I think of the good, loving people in my life who stood by me, who supported me in some of my darkest moments and who just happened to be gay. They all have more goodness in their little fingers that this bloviating hypocrites have in their entire bodies.
If that sounds like the old “some of my best friends are gay” line, well, you’re goddamn right. Some of my best friends are gay and if you don’t like that, you can go straight to Hell.
Send Us Guidance From Above
What is happening to this country? We used to look to the law for guidance and protection. We used to pass legislation that brought out our best qualities, instead of reinforcing our most base emotions.
And we looked to religion to make the world a better place, to open doors, not to build walls and breed hatred.
I feel like we’re entering into another dark age, where religion is being used as a cudgel to batter science, logic, and love. It is a very ugly time and I don’t see things turning around any time soon.
There are people whose religious beliefs call for crashing airplanes into buildings and chopping off the heads of nonbelievers. Shall we write laws catering to them as well?
For the record, I go to church and pray every morning, and my God loves everyone, no matter what their sexual orientation may be.
Governor Mike Pence, the Republican imbecile who signed the license to discriminate into law, claims he didn’t expect “the hostility that’s been directed at our state.”
The Indiana bill has rightfully sparked calls for a boycott of all things Hoosier and Pence is sputtering about how it is being misinterpreted, but he, of course, is full of shit.
He completely miscalculated the reaction to this law and got caught with his pence down. Now he’s doing a coward’s two-step and suggesting that he’s open to another bill that would “clarify” the original law’s intent.
It’s time for a return to sanity and we can start be dumping these laws and really listening to what Jesus had to say.
We only got one world, people. That’s all we got.
