Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal Will Screw The Gays All By Himself, You'll See
On Tuesday, a Fuck The Gays bill, HB 707 -- similar to the Religious Freedom Restoration Acts (RFRAs) that passed, and were subsequently "fixed" like common dachschunds, in Indiana and Arkansas -- died in a Louisiana House committee in a 10-2 vote. Gov. Bobby Jindal will not stand for this act of gay activist democracy, so he decided that if the House won't do its duty, to Jesus and America, and pass the bill, he will just write his own version of the bill and pass it with an executive order, like a common power-grabbing tyrant:
“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.”
It will be fun, when that little temper tantrum is thrown out in court. But thank God, Louisianans can feel safe for now, knowing they won't get holocausted, by having to make pizza for a buncha fags.
Of course, just as in Arkansas and Indiana, the legislature's idiot bill was partially killed by opposition from the liberal homosexualistas known as Big Business. The Human Rights Campaign reports that, in addition to many other nice, non-bigoted Louisianans, the committee heard testimony against the bill from Marriott Hotels, the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, and Greater New Orleans, Inc., a "regional business development alliance." But Gov. Jindal, as you may recall, has already insisted he won't be bullied by Big Business. He wrote an op-ed in the New York Times explaining that he would stand athwart all the gay cock currently throat-cramming his state, as opposed to sliding down on to it and going for a ride, like those OTHER nelly bottom Republican governors did. (He didn't address the fact that those gays fund his state's existence, with their tourism moneys.) So this is just Jindal's little way of stickin' it to the gays what stuck him first.
This is all part of the poor idiot's plan for running for president and proving that he is TOO dumber and more bigoted then the rest of the Republican 2016 clown car, which, to Jindal's credit, COULD BE TRUE. Of course, he'll never be president, not in a metric fuckton of years, but he doesn't know that, bless his dumbass heart.
Anyway, fuck him.
