Gay Agenda-doing Gov. Nathan Deal and a furry or something.
Gay Agenda-doing Gov. Nathan Deal and a furry or something.

Gov. Nathan Deal of Georgia is a Republican. A super Republican. He thinks Syrian refugees are gross, because WWJD, and he wants to make sure that if any of those icky people get into Georgia, they won’t be allowed to bathe in the excessive filet mignon riches provided by food stamps. He also hates it when poor Georgians who are NOT refugees get to have medical care.

So you’d think that, with Georgia’s state senate passing a completely fucking insane “religious liberty” bill, which would protect Good Christian Assholes and their sacred right to discriminate against the homosexuals, Gov. Deal would be all bright-eyed, bushy-tailed and full of boners about enshrining gay-hatin’ into state law. But what’s this?

In stark terms, the Republican said he would reject any measure that “allows discrimination in our state in order to protect people of faith,” and urged religious conservatives not to feel threatened by the ruling. He also called on his fellow Republicans pushing for the measure to take a deep breath and ” recognize that the world is changing around us.”

WAIT WHAT HUH? Is Nathan Deal a secret gay agenda-doer?! Even worse, he is doing the gay agenda with BIBLE VERSES?!?!111!?

“What the New Testament teaches us is that Jesus reached out to those who were considered the outcasts, the ones that did not conform to the religious societies’ view of the world … We do not have a belief in my way of looking at religion that says we have to discriminate against anybody. If you were to apply those standards to the teaching of Jesus, I don’t think they fit.” […]

“What that says is we have a belief in forgiveness and that we do not have to discriminate unduly against anyone on the basis of our own religious beliefs. 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.”

Silly governor, when Jesus talked about outcasts, he didn’t mean yucky-ducky homowads! He was talking about things like white people with Confederate flags on the back of their trucks breaking down on the side of the road and needing a lift the rest of the way to Walmart. That’s like the whole point of the Good Samaritan story, duh.

We are just fooling, Deal’s quote is actually very nice. But huh, we wonder why the Republican governor is taking this stand, while the Republican legislature thinks the most important thing in the world is protecting Christian bakers from having to make penis cakes for lesbians. HMMMMMMMMMM!

This week, we told you that the Republican governor of South Dakota, Dennis Daugaard, vetoed one of those “Hey kids, can we look at your wee-wees while you pee-pee?” laws, intended to prevent a deluge of transgender people from being able to do their Number 1’s and 2’s with a little bit of dignity and privacy. Last year, the Republican governors of Arkansas and Indiana were forced to sign “fixed” religious freedom bills into law, bills that actually guaranteed people couldn’t use religious beliefs to discriminate against The Gays.

What’s the common denominator here? Oh, just that big business goes APESHIT over these laws, because they are (SPOILER ALERT) Bad For Business. When Indiana passed its initial Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), corporations came down hard threatening to leave Indiana for literally anywhere else. In Arkansas, Walmart responded to a similar RFRA with a hearty “LOL!” and told Gov. Asa Hutchinson to fix it, dammit.

The sponsor of South Dakota’s No Whizzing For Transgenders law — the SPONSOR! — is encouraging his colleagues to uphold the governor’s veto, because “I think the national focus on South Dakota should be on our positive business environment, strong labor market, and excellent work our schools do.” Hmmmm, sounds like somebody’s caving to the Big Business Super Gay Industrial Complex!

And thus it is in Georgia, where business bigwigs like Michael Dell and Richard Fucking Branson are having a conniption, and even Dragon Con, which brings many tourism moneys to Georgia, is making subtle threats to seek greener, less hateful pastures if this law passes.

And that is the story of why Nathan Deal, a wingnut’s wingnut if there ever was one, is Bible-beating his fellow Republicans over their piggy heads, telling them their “Let’s Hate The Gays” bill is a bunch of bullshit and telling them, like so many governors before him, to FIX IT DAMMIT.

      Apart from the business angle, it’s possible Deal may have a gay son or two and therefore has been forced to view this from a human perspective.

    Repubes love hating on teh gheys, brown people, and wimmens, so long as it doesn’t interfere with bidness. And codifying the hate into law (which is what their drooling base wants) is always bad for bidness. The sub-morons of the GOP base are just now starting to catch on to this after about 50 years as the GOP’s useful idiots.

    They highlight the very noble reasons why businesses freak out. Never mentioned is that Walmart and Marriott don’t want cashiers and desk clerks refusing to do their jobs because of “religious freedom”. This would create an environment where the employee can sue if he is fired for not doing his job, and the customer can sue if treated unfairly by the zealot employee. It’s a no win situation for big business. If Kim Davis was a minimum wage employee refusing to do her job instead of a mini despot of Podunk, she would have been squashed like the bug she is.

    I guess there is a little pro-business left in the culture war dominated GOP.

    • But wasn’t it s business thst STARTED the whole “religious freedom” crap in the first place?

    I would like to add that being gay is not something for which anyone needs forgiveness. Certainly not from you, Governor McHolier-than-thou!

    I’m reminded of the scene in Roadhouse, where Patrick Swayze’s character is trying to rent a room from the upright, upstanding member of the local church. He notes that he has to charge him something, otherwise the Presbyterians will pray for his ruination. When Dalton asks if $100/month will keep him in the good graces of the church, Emmett notes “Ain’t it peculiar how money does that very thing?”

    Ted Cruz would never reconsider his position, even after hearing that bidness might not like it. Ted would adhere to the strong conservative principles that Jesus and Ronald Reagan gave him. Ted Cruz would just shut down the State gubmint.

  • chicken thief

    Actually Deal had been debating whether to sign the bill or not. What really sealed the deal, convinced him of the right way to go, was Huckabee offered stand with him, side by side, and bring Kim Davis down for the bill signing.

    • roberteye

      OR Tyler Perry et al. not standing with him, and taking himself outta GA. And a large segment of “Atlantawood” (PS – continued success largely based on “right to work” BS) showbiz would join him. Unfortunate irony that the corporate media $$ is required to trump (so to speak) this typical whack job sociopathy. Would that Branson and the other corporately outraged would similarly squeeze these nimrods about women’s health, voting rights, education, climate, fracking, etc.

    The real outrage here is the MSM celebration over Nathan Deal’s selective use of Sharia Law Christianism to avoid boycotts by businesses, instead of saying “FUCK DISCRIMINATION”

    And the MSM swallows this as noble gesture, and will probably present the douchebag with some “Friend of the LGBT” award.

    Think about low the bar is: Deal vetoes a discriminatory bill, and is almost Jesus-like in stature.

    • beavertank

      No, the real outrage is still (as always) the ongoing attempts by many state legislatures to protect bigotry and turn the clock back on equality under the guise of “religious freedom”.

      No one thinks Gov. Deal is suddenly an LGBT ally. But sometimes, you’ve got to celebrate the victories you can actually get, no matter how that happens.

        The civil rights movement also had a strong Christian component to it. As did the nuclear disarmament and antiwar movements. In the late ’50s and throughout the ’60s Christians in general, and Catholics in particular, were more often allied with the left. It may sound strange and counterintuitive now, but I remember those days. They were very much identified with the left in Latin America in those years, when they stood up to and repeatedly clashed with the right wing paramilitary groups and the oligarchs in those countries.

    If any of these corn-fed anti-transgender kumquats had the means or desire to travel farther than the local Ci Ci’s Pizza Buffet, they’d be shocked, but certainly not enlightened, to learn that unisex public restrooms have existed in many other countries for decades. When I was 14 my family moved to the Netherlands and, true, I was a little nonplussed the first time I entered a bathroom equipped with his and hers accouterments, but I was, after all, fourteen. Strangely enough there were no restraints built into the walls so evil opposite sex people could strap you in and force you to watch them make poopee doodys or whizzbangs. There were, however, individual stalls with doors that locked and ever’thang.
    My favorites were the ones that had a gigantic drain in the middle of the floor so that those who were properly equipped could just pee on the floor, then step on a pedal which activates a rush of water that artfully (after all, we’re talking about Dutch engineering) flushes away all liquid leavings.

          Re your peeing out comment: a few days ago I was downstairs doing laundry and when I went back upstairs I found my 2 year old grandson standing in the open front doorway with his pants around his ankles, happily spraying the front porch all sprinkler style. He was so pleased with himself I figured eh, fuck it, I’ll let his parents deal with it.

      About twenty years ago, I was in the produce section of the grocery store. A woman came around the corner with two kids – one in the seat of the shopping cart and the other walking alongside. As she pushes the cart around an endcap, the kid sitting in the cart points across the produce section and hollers, “THAT LADY’S BUTT IS STICKING OUT! LOOK! THAT LADY’S BUTT IS STICKING OUT!!”

      Needless to say, she turned the cart around and left the store.

      So, your story holds an extra-special memory charm for me.

        Oh, ya, they are special flower angel unicorns, aren’t they? My other son, age 2ish, and I were killing some time at a Dunkin’ Donuts while my hubby was at an appointment. We were seated at the counter and had just been served our order by the rather dour, morbidly obese donut lady–you know those people who just stare at you like you’re an asshole for daring to smile and greet them pleasantly? She was still standing right in front of us when he oh so stealthily leaned toward me, keeping his eyes on the counter woman the entire time, and “whispered” out of the corner of his mouth at a volume that echoed off the walls: “Mommy. Why is dat wady SO FAT?”
        We ended up getting our order to go.

    • “Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and
      many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome,
      charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in
      one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.”

    Deal pontificated,

    What that says is we have a belief in forgiveness and that we do not have to discriminate unduly against anyone on the basis of our own religious beliefs.

    So, Nathan sweety, you’re saying that there’s a sufficient amount of discriminating? An appropriate amount?
    Sorry, amigo, you’re still an asshole, just one who can occasionally be coerced into acting like a decent human being now and again.

    No God. No Jesus. There is no religious basis for anything in the Constitution. Why are our elected executives and legislators continually babbling about this bullshit, at length, to explain their arguments? Arrrrrggghhhhh!!!1!!1!!!

  • Perhaps Corporate board members know that at some point it’ll be a Corporate Person with sincerely held religious beliefs going up against a secular Corporate Person in front of the SCOTUS. If they don’t fix it now, in realms where they have enough influence it could come back to bite them later.
