About the #LGBT state laws like #RFRA in Indiana

Guess what? The gays and lesbians have a lot of power in this country. Tim Cook, the CEO of Apple (one of the richest companies in the world), is a fine example. He agrees with me in that these so-called “Religious Freedom” laws are destructive and harmful (for that matter so does the ACLU).  There are quite a few of us out there which nobody even realizes are CEOs of large profitable corporations (an example is the head of Burberry is out yet most do not know nor care about it). Together we will be able to get these dreadful state “religious freedom” laws removed from the books. Religion has no place in our government.  Our forefathers plainly said Church and State are to be SEPARATE! Sadly there are those decisions like the #HobbyLobby case in which precedent was set for states to keep and pass many of these laws in 19 other states.  Arkansas is poised now to be the 21st state and will suffer the same consequences of boycotting like Indiana in their state and businesses located there (Wal-Mart for example is a prime target if this were to happen in Arkansas).  This is all about timing.  A GOP moron named Mike Pence passed the Indiana law in 2015.  Instead of being intelligent enough to know to veto said law like the similar one in Arizona, which thankfully Jan Brewer did veto (even though she still is very right wing), Mr. Pence signed the paper making the law “Religious Freedom Restoration Act”. That kind of law should not be signed today.  For that matter it should not even be getting into these state legislatures. These laws are mere attempts to discriminate against us and if you are told otherwise, that is a flat out lie.  An example, I am a Satanist and my religion says I cannot serve you green eggs and ham (Satan wrote it in his recipe book).  See how absurd that previous sentence sounds!  As I have told family and right wing friends, it is not just about #GayMarriage it is about #Equality in how we are viewed and treated in society. The only difference between Selma fifty years ago and this fight today is that you cannot identify us by our skin color (only by our impeccable fashion sense). Too many conservatives view all of us as second-class citizens when in fact some of us have more money, taste, class, and education than these bigots that barely run our congress! I hope and pray that by 2016 the GOP destroys itself with all of its destructive hate speech and out-dated so-called morality that is exposed in the news via the Internet.  Most of those that profess to have such high morals are usually secretly practicing the morals of a common feral cat! The extreme right agenda that is mostly funded by the Koch Brothers must somehow be stopped before the next election.  If not, our country is doomed!  I am hopeful that when the Supreme Court hands down its decision in June, it will make our cause understood in ways that most republicans have no clue about today.  #NotSecondClass We had this discussion long ago.  You do not get to decide who sits at the lunch counter.  You do not get to decide that because Satan told you to believe LGBT persons are second-class they may not marry one another out of love.  You do not get to decide that because you object to two men expressing their love that your belief system prevents you from selling us flowers or cakes.  Because guess what, for each asshat that does not wish to sell one, there is someone else waiting to take our money.  That is all 🙂
