We dunno.

It's a bad week for gay-bashing political types in the Tennessee legislature. They just KNEW they had an ace in the hole, a sexciting new way to ban the Supreme Court from forcing gaysexual homo-nasty into their Christian throats, with a bill called the Natural Marriage Defense Act, which would have overturned the SCOTUS ruling on gay marriage, at least for Tennessee's purposes. Or that's what the bill's supporters believed it would do, because they are dumb as dog dicks.

So the supporters prayed and prayed for God to help them de-gay Tennessee, and God rolled His eyes and said He was going to brunch with the homos:

A bill seeking to block the U.S. Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling in Tennessee was defeated Wednesday in the state House over concerns about nullifying federal rulings.

The Civil Justice Subcommittee voted 4-1 against the Tennessee Natural Marriage Defense Act sponsored by Republican Rep. Mark Pody of Lebanon, who argued that the ruling should not supersede an amendment to the state constitution defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

TOO BAD SO SAD. What's super great is that two of the votes against the bill were cast by Republican human-like Tennessean lawmakers:

Republican Rep. Mike Carter of Chattanooga said that although he disagrees with the high court's ruling, he considered the proposal to be a step too far.

"Nullification scares the daylights out of me," Carter said. "Because no one will answer me who has the authority to nullify, and nobody will answer me where that authority is derived."

Because it doesn't exist! Also, on top of that whole "unconstitutional" thing, it turns out the bill would have cost the state $8.5 billion in federal moneys, specifically "$6.5 billion in federal Medicaid money and another $2 billion in food stamp and Temporary Assistance for Needy Families funds." Now, we know how Republicans like to fuck the poors, so we're impressed they didn't jizz all over the bill and pass it out of committee unanimously.

The bill's sponsor, Rep. Mark Pody, is a real dingus. He thinks Jesus spoked into his earhole and told him to destroy gay marriage in Tennessee:

“Ladies and gentlemen, I believe I’m supposed to be speaking to the unsaved, to the people that are performing same-sex marriages, to the people involved in same-sex marriage, it is wicked, it is wrong and I am doing the best I can to warn them,” said Rep. Mark Pody at a recent event in Nashville.

Stupidass, Jesus doesn't even know your name.

The supporters of the failed Tennessee bill, silly geese that they are, prayed afterward that God would help them find new ways to murder gay marriage in the butt, because if they don't, terrible things will happen:

"We have to do something quickly, because there's a cliff ahead of us, a civilization, and it's within sight," said Lydon Allen, a pastor at the Woodmont Bible Church in Nashville.

Oh fuck! We're going off a cliff into the valley of gay and civilization is over and pitiful bigots are being forced to coexist with people who are different from them! Better pray harder!

Unfortunately, all their prayers went to God's spam folder, with the Russian porn and the Nigerian scam letters, never to be answered.

In what seems like a perfectly logical move where corporations are people, MGM International Resorts is suing all the victims of the Las Vegas massacre in federal court. But don't worry -- at least the company isn't seeking damages from them for its own corporate pain and suffering! Instead, the lawsuit is a maneuver to head off liability claims related to the mass shooting last October 1, as is only right and just. All they want is what's coming to them, like immunity from damages and some ill will from consumers, which will no doubt blow over eventually.

Do-Nothing Republicans Continue Doing Nothing About Traitor Trump

Can you keep a crook in office while not looking crooked yourself?


Monday in Helsinki, Donald Trump stood next to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the official sponsor of Trump's White House reality show, and glibly debased America and its institutions in exchange for a soccer ball, which frankly is more than his soul was ever worth. Republican leaders, defenders of liberty all, strongly condemned the president's actions. House Speaker Paul Ryan went so far as to say, "There's no place for this. [He] should apologize. That's dangerous for our society, that's dangerous for our democracy."

Sorry, no, that was a statement Ryan made when Rep. Maxine Waters suggested citizens personally let members of Trump's cabinet know how much they suck. Ryan's actual statement post-Helsinki reminded me more of the "vaguebooking" your friend posts on social media when their marriage is collapsing.

There is no question that Russia interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world. That is not just the finding of the American intelligence community but also the House Committee on Intelligence. The president must appreciate that Russia is not our ally. There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russia, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals. The United States must be focused on holding Russia accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy.

"Sometimes you realize you should've listened to your family and friends. You should trust they know what's best for you. It can turn out that your heart was wrong all along."
