Gov Bobby Jindal Signs Religious Liberty/Right To Discriminate Executive Order Into Law In Louisiana – #BoycottLouisiana

BOYCOTT 2

Only two hours after Louisiana’s state legislature squashed a law that would have allowed businesses to discriminate against the LGBT community, Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal issued an executive order to accomplish its intent.

“What we are seeing today in America is an all-out assault on religious liberty,” said Jindal, who called the executive order the “next best thing” to signing the bill.

HB 707, which would have blocked the government from penalizing companies and individuals because of the owner’s stance on same-sex marriage, was overwhelmingly defeated in the state house’s Civil Law and Procedure over fears that it legalized discrimination against LGBT people.

A joint statement from Equality Louisiana, an LGBT rights group, and Louisiana Progress Action, says the executive order will hurt the state’s economy. The statement also attributed the move to the governor’s presidential aspirations.

“It is shameful that Gov. Jindal has decided that abusing his executive power to accomplish the goals of House Bill 707, even after it was tabled indefinitely by our legislature today, is worth more effort than fixing our disastrous state budget. In his time in Iowa, he may have forgotten what everyday Louisianians value, but the testimony today against HB 707 should have reminded him. Discrimination is not a Louisiana value.

Louisiana tourism which generates over $807 million – state tax revenues generated by travel and tourism activities alone fears the loss of billions from an upcoming boycott of the state from the LGBT Community and its allies.

Louisiana Democratic Party Executive Director Stephen Handwerk issued the following statement about the executive order:

“Gov. Jindal’s stunt today once again underlines his disregard for Louisiana families, his disdain for the state legislature and his apparent contempt for the state’s tourism industry — the only segment of our economy his failed policies haven’t crippled. Louisiana taxpayers and businesses are once again being forced to foot the bill for Jindal’s vanity. It’s foolishness our families cannot afford.”

Bobby Jindal Vows To Issue “Religious Liberty” Executive Order After State House Committee Kills Bill HB#707

Bobby Jindal

 

This afternoon the Louisiana House Committee sent HB#707, the states own version of an anti-gay “Religious Liberty” bill back to the calendar bn over-whelming vote of 10 – 2  effectively killing any chance of passage for this season.

After the defeat Tony Perkins best butt buddy Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal vowed to issue a Religious Liberty Executive Order to make up for the hate bills death.

“We are disappointed by the committee’s action to return the Louisiana Marriage and Conscience Act to the calendar. We will be issuing an Executive Order shortly that will accomplish the intent of HB 707 to prevent the state from discriminating against persons or entities with deeply held religious beliefs that marriage is between one man and one woman. This Executive Order will prohibit the state from denying or revoking a tax exemption, tax deduction, contract, cooperative agreement, loan, professional license, certification, accreditation, or employment on the basis the person acts in accordance with a religious belief that marriage is between one man and one woman.

In the past Jindal has said about President Obama issuing an executive order on immigration:

“If the President wants to make the case that the law should be changed, he should go make the case to Congress and our people. This is an arrogant, cynical political move by the President, and it’s why so many Americans no longer trust this President to solve the problems we face.”

If Jindal has the nerve and stupidity to issue the executive order, we should all push for a public backlash against the state by boycotting it and its products.

History Repeats Itself BOYCOTT COORS! – Coors Chairman To Speak At Anti-Gay Legatus Organization Gathering

COORS BOYCOTT

 

While BOTH actor Gary Sinise, and FOX News Anchor Bret Baier,have cancelled,  Pete Coors, the Chairman of the Molson Coors Brewing Company  along with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal and NYC Archbishop Timothy Dolan, are still planning to  headlining the annual conference of the Catholic Legatus organization that harbors very hateful views on gays, supports “gay conversion” therapy and calls same-sex attraction a ‘disorder’

It’s impossible to see homosexual unions as being in line with God’s intentions for marriage since the product of intercourse is not fruitful. Along with masturbation, fornication, and adultery, homosexuality is a selfish act that cannot fulfill the divinely ordained purpose of the reproductive powers. The Church teaches that God instituted the sacrament of Marriage, and only He has the authority to change the nature of marriage. Neither the Church nor the state has the competence to alter the substance of marriage or the family. Attempts by civil government or the courts to alter the law in favor of same-sex unions distort the true meaning of marriage, which has existed for thousands of years

Fortunately there is hope for those who suffer from the disorder. The National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality reports that significant numbers of homosexual persons have undergone treatment and had their sexual drives properly ordered. These findings are a beacon of hope to those suffering from SSA, as well as for their family and friends who desire their happiness and good health. Finally, for those who for whatever reason cannot be cured, there is a support group known as Courage to help them live safe, moral, chaste lives. Those who continue to suffer from this disorder can find true help through an orientation toward their Savior and Redeemer, “the Orient from on High,” and the life that He offers them in Himself.

In 1977 lesbian/gay businesses joined an AFL-CIO boycott of Coors, citing Coors’ history of support for attacks on gay rights. Sales of Coors beer plummeted in the gay community. In response, in 1978 Coors adopted language against discrimination on account of sexual orientation in employment, and has offered small sums of money to lesbian/gay organizations in order to recover beer sales and improve Coors’ public image. (which they still do to this day)

But Coors has never stopped funding right-wing attacks on gay rights. Coors had never really learned since the 1977 boycott of gays and lesbians and have always put up a good front.  That is until now.

The Coors family still supports extreme right wing anti-gay groups and politicians to this day through their foundations and individual Coors family members who profit from the brewery. Coors wants lesbians and gay men to buy their beer so they can use the profits to fund right wing attacks on our civil rights.  Beneficiaries of the Coors’ largesse include: The Heritage Foundatio.  The Center for the Study of Popular Culture, David Horowitz’ far right wing group. Horowitz has written demagogically, blaming gay men for the spread of AIDS and The Council for National Policy, a group of far right wing anti-gay bigots include and have included Pat Robertson, Phyllis Schlaffly, Jerry Falwell, Oliver North, Gary Bauer, Ralph Reed, Ed Meese, Lon Mabon and Sen. Jesse Helms.

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

LGBT COMMUNITY BOYCOTT COORS ONCE AND FOR ALL AND DO NOT ALLOW THEIR GIFTS AND DONATIONS TO GAY ORGANIZATIONS PINKWASH THEIR BIGOTRY AND RIGHT WING EXTREMISM!

Fool me once shame on me. Fool me twice FUCK YOU!

The Capital City News reports:

Gov. Bobby Jindal has appointed former Rep. Tony Perkins to the Louisiana Commission on Law Enforcement, and the Senate has confirmed his nomination. The commission awards grants and governs practices of State Police and local law enforcement agencies. Perkins said he is happy to be working to fight the crime problem. The appointment is the first position Perkins has accepted since leaving the legislature in 2004. He remains president of the Family Research Council in Washington and commutes there weekly during most of the year.

Perkins as we all know is the President of the officially classified anti-gay hate group The Family Research Council.

Perkins who is documented to have have ties to white supremacists groups in 1996, while managing the U.S. Senate campaign of Woody Jenkins paid $82,500 to use the mailing list of close friend and  Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke.  Also in  2001, Perkins gave a speech and accepted an award from the  Louisiana chapter of the Council of Conservative Citizens (CCC), a white supremacist group that has described black people as a “retrograde species of humanity.”
