Attorneys for Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant are defending a state law that lets government workers and private business people cite religious beliefs to deny services to LGBT people.

"Attorneys for Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant are defending a state law that lets government workers and private business people cite religious beliefs to deny services to queers.

The law took effect last month amid multiple court challenges. It protects three truths: that marriage is only between a man and a woman, that sex should only occur in such a marriage and that a person's gender is determined at birth and cannot be altered."

"they wrote that the law protects people from being penalized for refusing to participate in activities they consider 'immoral'"

This could be great because "activities they consider 'immoral'" is a very wide net. People could refuse to pay state taxes that support the military (National Guard) or prisons or charter schools or, recursively, tax collection efforts.

The constant assaults on decency, health and public rejection of drug addiction by the homosexual community has forced people into more focused efforts to inhibit the continued onslaughts from the deviant and destructive elements inflicting them. This is a very common societal response to those dark, evil forces periodically attacking civilization and its established healthy parameters. As society has seen in the so-called "arts" and other venues of public behavior, the deviant minorities taking control of those expressions always leads to social unrest and eventually, deranged behaviors and drug addictions guaranteeing the downfall of younger generations. It takes time, but societies eventually react to these destructive forces much like animals behave in self-preservation.

Here's the "decency" of the far right:

Cordwainer Trout: "You know very well Blacks in North America benefited from slavery, now to the point they can no longer relate to stagnant, savage Blacks in Africa (except maybe the Black Panthers.) Also, Black male interest in screwing White women is definitely based on skin color and deep seated racism, as is their disproportionate targeting of Whites for criminal activities and their disproportionate focus on violently murdering their own."
