Mississippi Passes Anti-Gay Jim Crow Law, So-called “Religious Freedom” Act Passed‏

Evil Prayers


Like a thief in the night, the Mississippi legislature sneakily and quietly passed an Arizona-style anti-gay segregation bill, potentially legalizing anti-gay discrimination throughout the state. The bill, which in an earlier form received unanimous bipartisan support from the state House of Representatives, is almost certain to be signed by Republican Gov. Phil Bryant. That will make Mississippi the first state to write anti-gay animus into state law.

After the fallout and debacle of Arizona’s failed anti-gay bill, Mississippi legislators rewrote their state’s measure to seeminngly curb its anti-gay extremism by changing the verbage but by leaving the premise the same using much broarder language. These revisions struck out the bill’s most odious provision, a section that handed private businesses a blank check to refuse service to gay people. What remains at the heart of Mississippi’s reworked bill is a dense proscription against “state action” that “burden[s] a person’s right to exercise of religion, even if the burden results from a rule of general applicability,” unless it’s “essential to further a compelling government interest” and “the least restrictive means” of furthering that interest.

The Mississippi legislature’s did this to write a bill so broad that no court could argue its constitutionality by ext alone. Indeed, even the most liberal judges of the Ninth Circuit probably couldn’t find a basis to strike down the measure as it stands now. But some day, an ambitiously anti-gay Mississippian is bound to cite the law in court. And at that point, Mississippi is going to find itself with a Romer problem.

I would say lets boycott Mississippi but what the hell do they have worth boycotting?

BREAKING: Kansas’ Hateful “Religious Based” LGBT Discrimination Bill BLOCKED In Senate!



Kansas’ hateful “religious based” bill that would have legally allowed  discrimination against LGBT’s in that state has been blocked in its current form by several Senate Republicans who joined the overwhelming Democrat opposition:

Susan Wagle, a conservative Republican who is president of the Kansas Senate, raised opposition to the House measure, saying she had “grown concerned about the practical impact of the bill” and “my members don’t condone discrimination.”

Ms. Wagle was backed by Senator Jeff King, the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, who said he would not hold hearings on the House bill. Instead, Mr. King said, his committee would hold hearings on the broader topic of religious freedom in Kansas and explore whether the Legislature needed to take any further steps to shore up those protections.

The bill which would essentially introduce a “new segregation” in the United States would allow people, groups, and businesses and even city employess such as Doctors and Firemen to legally discriminate against LGBT individuals based on religious beliefs.

On The Young Turks, Cenk Uygur laid out the details in this deplorable Kansas bill.


OMFG! – Wilcox County High School in Georgia to Host First Integrated Prom

Integrated Prom

Wilcox County High School in Rochelle Georgia about 50 miles outside of Macon will have its first integreted prom this year.

Yes you read that right.  In 2013 Wilcox High will integrated its prom.  But Homecoming will still be segregated.

There’s a white prom and then we have our integrated prom,” said student Keela Bloodworth.

Keela added that if any race other than Caucasian tries to attend the white prom, that student would probably be escorted off the premises by police. That was the case last year when a biracial student was turned away by police.

While having two separate dances, the school decided to elect only one pair for Homecoming king and queen for the first last year.

Quanesha Wallace won.

“I felt like there had to be a change because for me to be a black person and the king to be a white person, I felt like, you know why can’t we come together,” said Wallace. But nothing changed. Quanesha wasn’t invited to the white Homecoming dance. In fact, the pair took separate photos for the school yearbook.

We’re embarrassed, it’s embarrassing,” said student Stephanie Sinnot.

So the senior class is raising money to pay for the integrated prom, without the help of school officials to be held April 27

But, not everyone is fond of the idea. Some of the posters for the integrated prom that were hung up have been ripped to the ground.

I am INCENSED.   If it had read this on Monday, I would have thought it was an April Fool’s joke.

If anyone out there wants to give these kids some help or some kind words of advice like “GET OUT OF THERE AFTER GRADUATION” they have a Facebook page HERE

And if you want to give Wilcox County High School in Macon, GA a piece of your mind and some seriously earned grief you can call them by using this phone number (229) 365-7231


Michelle Obama and the White House Purposely Bar Gay Groups From Military "Joining Forces" Ceremony

Michelle Obama and Jill Biden’s initiative to “support and honor America’s service members and their families.” entitled “Joining Forces” kicked off today with an opening ceremony which included remarks from President Obama.  But it seems that the only military families and members who were aren’t being honored and included are the gays and lesbians ones

Michelle Obama and The White House purposely did not invite Gay and Lesbian Military groups and organizations from attending the ceremony while other  with few or no military families in their constituencies.

Servicemembers United, who  represents gay and lesbian troops and veterans, complained that the White House had barred civilian representatives of gay and lesbian military families from the  event.

“It is rather unfortunate that both East Wing and West Wing staff have refused to allow a representative of gay military families to even be in the room at an event that is supposed to honor their commitment and sacrifice” Alex Nicholson, from Servicemembers United siad. “”[t]he First Lady’s office has used the continued enforcement of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ as an excuse to exclude us, even though they know that ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ does not apply to the civilians who work at their advocacy and service organizations. Many straight organizational representatives have been invited to this event, including some with few or no military families in their constituencies. “Yet our thousands of gay military families are shut out from being represented today because of nothing but lingering political homophobia. Gay and lesbian military families should not have to fight this hard just to stand in the back of the room in 2011.”

Communications Director for Michelle Obama Kristina Schake, , explained the decision in an email to CBS News.

“The President has been crystal clear that the Administration is moving forward with the repeal of ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ quickly and efficiently,” she said. “However, it still remains the law. The White House, including the First Lady and Dr. Biden, look forward to working with the families of gay and lesbian service members after certification occurs and repeal goes into effect.”

Way NOT to go there Mrs. Obama.

Sure is a good thing Jackie Kennedy and Lady Bird Johnson didn’t feel that way before the 1965 Civil Rights Act was signed.  Martin Luther King would have never met with Kennedy and Johnson before the signing.

Tea Party Backed Wake County, North Carolina School Board Re-Introduces Segregation

Republicans who won and took over the Raleigh, NC school board with the backing of the Tea Party. (And PLEASE LETS BE REAL.  The Tea Party are pasrt of the the Republican party as Progressives are to the Democratic party) have voted and approved to stop the busing of minority students from poorer neighborhoods into better-funded school districts. Wake County’s school superintendent has resigned in protest and guess what? His expected replacement is a Tea Party activist and retired general who lists himself as a fan of Glenn Beck on his Facebook page

The new school board has won applause from parents who blame the old policy – which sought to avoid high-poverty, racially isolated schools – for an array of problems in the district and who say that promoting diversity is no longer a proper or necessary goal for public schools. “This is Raleigh in 2010, not Selma, Alabama, in the 1960s – my life is integrated,” said John Tedesco, a new board member. “We need new paradigms.” But critics accuse the new board of pursuing an ideological agenda aimed at nothing less than sounding the official death knell of government-sponsored integration in one of the last places to promote it. Without a diversity policy in place, they say, the county will inevitably slip into the pattern that defines most districts across the country, where schools in well-off neighborhoods are decent and those in poor, usually minority neighborhoods struggle.

Today’s GOP and Tea Party: a bridge to the 19th century.

Fucking racist, bigoted assholes.
