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!.

This law is simply moronic and immoral. It's the contemporary equivalent of allowing for "whites only" establishments.

I'm so happy that the times have changed so much that now the demise of these bigots is going to come through damage to their economy.

The backlash continues to grow as Pence doubles down and says the law is fine as it is. Washington state and Connecticut both boycotting the state, AFSCME has cancelled their women's conference, Pro athletes jumping in; apparently no on likes this but bigots. Make them pay the price. There is a boycott of Indiana products starting to make its way around as well. 

Photo tells the story, what the hell, is this the 1800's?

The picture above looks very much like the usual suspects the religious mafia.

But doesn't Governor Pence look a dick among those people, he must have known how he would have come across to all decent minded people. 

What's the source for this image?

It doesn't cross reference via google images.

Propagating fake news images Neal?

All this from the "In God We Trust" license plate state. 

A very slippery slope this law, and other moves by the Christian right has to be fought against.

I cant imagine this will be allowed to stand the, State cant be that stupid. 

Apparently the Governor of Indiana has stepped back after public, and private outrage. In the end though blind belief in bronze age thinking has to end to enable life to exist on earth.

Yet his "step back" was not complete. Today I heard that provisions still remain for pharmacists not having to provide HIV medicines etc.

How very Christian of them-wow what idiots

That's unbelievable.

Are you saying that there us still a 'gay' thing going on?

Or even worse that sex is illegal?

Monkeys need to fuck.

It's terrible that Ebola, AIDS, and other diseases of the sort that are transmitted and stigmatized.

It's tragic how disease has hit us and the medical community needs more support to help.
