Radical libruls have taken over our classrooms, our judiciaries, and the media. But they can’t take over my column! Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the loony, bigoted, and hateful behavior of the increasingly unhinged left wing. Starting with number five:
5. Gov. Nathan Deal
Georgia governor Nathan Deal vetoed the religious liberty bill that would have protected the God-given freedoms of Peach Staters from the encroachments of the radical LGBT agenda.
Deal makes the insulting gesture of bolstering his spaghetti-spined move by invoking Christians’ own principles against them, saying in his remarks that Christians “have a belief in forgiveness and that we do not have to discriminate unduly against anyone on the basis of our own religious beliefs.”
He continued: “We are not jeopardized, in my opinion, by those who believe differently from us. We are not, in my opinion, put in jeopardy by virtue of those who might hold different beliefs or who may not even agree with what our Supreme Court said the law of the land is on the issue of same-sex marriage. I do not feel threatened by the fact that people who might choose same-sex marriages pursue that route.”
Of course, earnest Christian faith had nothing to do with Deal’s decision. This is merely a craven capitulation from a RINO gov, who is apparently more interested in catering to Hollywood and corporate interests than respecting the men and women who actually work and live in his state. AJC.com reported:
Executives from dozens of big-name companies, including Disney, Apple, Time Warner, Intel and Salesforce, called on the governor to veto the bill. The NFL warned it could risk Atlanta’s bid for the Super Bowl and the NCAA hinted it could influence the state’s ability to host championship games. And Deal’s office said two economic development prospects have already abandoned Georgia because of the legislation.
Thankfully, in this country, our rights do not come by “executives from big-name companies” or the NFL — they come from God. Lawmakers who recognize this simple fact have vowed to take up the crusade against the insidious gaystapo goons in the next session.
