    Come on Republicans

    I know you love to pander to your gay hating base. But are you ever going to learn?

    Indiana Governor Mike Pence is ready to sign into law a bill allowing businesses to refuse service to gays for "religious reasons" . All this ten days before the NCAA Final Four comes to Indianapolis. So what was once an opportunity to show the country what a great location his state is for major events, now becomes a poster child for "We hate gays".
    See how many Final Fours come back to Indianapolis. Superbowl? Forget it Mike

    But at least you got to score points with your gay hating base

    Republicans just can't help themselves.

    Pence has just turned his Final Four into a referendum on gay rights

    Is he really that stupid?

    Even Jan Brewer was able to figure out it was bad for business


    Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed a bill Wednesday that would have allowed businesses that asserted their religious beliefs the right to deny service to gay and lesbian customers.
    The controversial measure faced a surge of opposition in recent days from large corporations and athletic organizations, including Delta Air Lines, the Super Bowl host committee and Major League Baseball

    Liberty, the conservative watchword, always seems to get applied as a liberty to deny others rights.

    Weird.

    .

    I realize this approach won't be popular, but let's take a moment to "think things through".

    What are these people going to do, hang a "NO GAYS ALLOWED" sign on their window? Classy. That would make it easy for people to take a photo of it, and before you know it, everyone on the planet knows about it. Then it won't be just the gay population that doesn't go in there, it would be a large segment of the population, those of us who don't like such simple-minded bigotry. Any restaurant that tried that would see a significant drop in business, and no restaurant can afford that for long. Bye bye!

    So you're an anti-gay bigot? Cool. Thanks for letting me know. Put up a big sign so that I'll know, and then I'll also know never to go in there and to tell a few friends about it.

    Yeah, pass that law.

    Shame really...I could have got behind this law if the amendment requiring businesses to advertise that they don't want gays would have passed. Cowards.
