We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Indiana, being the Alabama of the north, is front and center this week. Governor with presidential ambitions Mike Pence signed into law the "Religious Freedom" act. Basically vilified by all those who are part of the thinking human race, it is just foolishness meant to excuse those who wish not to participate in modern commerce, and for those who believe recognizing our shared common humanity is simply horrible.

Immediately the close-minded fools celebrated:

An Indiana business owner went on a local radio station and said that he had discriminated against gay or lesbian couples even before Gov. Mike Pence (R) signed a law on Thursday protecting business owners who decide to discriminate for “religious liberty” reasons. He then defended the practice and suggested he would do it again.


The business owner, who would not give his name or the name of his business, said he had told some LGBT “people” that equipment was broken in his restaurant and he couldn’t serve them even though it wasn’t and other people were already eating at the tables. “So, yes, I have discriminated,” he told RadioNOW 100.9 hosts. The hosts were surprised the owner said he was okay with discriminating.


“Well, I feel okay with it because it’s my place of business, I pay the rent, I’ve built it with all my money and my doing. It’s my place; I can do whatever I want with it, “he said. “They can have their lifestyle and do their own thing in their own place or with people that want to be with them.”

Even the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, which in no way is a liberal institution, understood the loss of revenue this bill heralds. Apple, Yelp, the NCAA, and so many more, are already talking about not doing business in the state.

Yet this is possibly the best news I've heard in a while. There are other states ready to follow Indiana's lead regardless of the consequences. Maybe we couldn't rationally stop the spread of stupid, but it appears we can now bankrupt it.

Celebrate the good news brothers!.

Of course, you can find white nationalism everywhere. And here in Europe, you can still find the mother of all Fascists the Nazis. And these groups are the real deal.

I guess we're spoiled.....religion is barely noticed in my city.

Thomas Frank's 2004 book 'What's the Matter wilth Kansas.'

I didn't like wikepedia when it first came out. It's getting better with more 'open source.

Here's an interview with Thomas Frank.
