Because Jeeesus Hates Them Homosexuals

January 31, 2014 By: Juanita Jean Herownself Category: Uncategorized

South Dakota’s state legislature says that the First Amendment gives you the right to express your religious beliefs, even if your religion teaches you to hate people.

Check this out.  There’s a bill that gives you the right to call homosexuals any damn thing you want to in the public square, the workplace, and church.  They can refuse to serve you in a restaurant, wait on you in a store, hire you, or allow you in libraries if they believe you are a homosexual.

imagesAnd if you sue because of it, the judge is required to dismiss the case and fine you for bringing the lawsuit.  They believe in free speech but not the rule of law.

And if the federal government should overrule all this, they will secede.  And, hopefully, take Rick Perry with them.

Customer Mike thinks he’s found where Steve Stockman was during his “gone missing” phase.  He was writing legislation in South Dakota!

    Well, that would explain a lot.
    New topic. Guess what I found out today in Dave McNeely’s article? There’s a movement around to remove the 17th Amendment from the Constitution so the pesky poor folks couldn’t go and take over the Senate. That would explain why the Koch bros. said awhile back that if they can get hold of legislatures, Congress won’t matter. We live in bizarre times. Just for fun, google Dewhurst and 17th Amendment.

  2. Marge Wood says:

    And I don’t recall Jesus saying anything about homosexuals although he did have a lot to say about greed.

  3. Karen Crosby says:

    South Dakota is the new Russia!

  4. Right, Marge Wood. As Jimmy Carter remarked, homosexuality was well known in Roman times when Jesus lived, and Jesus never said a word about it.

  5. I suggest we start a movement to prove Jesus was gay.
    RWNJ heads will all explode and we’ll be rid of their nonsense.

    I bet there’s a rider that lets them take away little children’s lunches too. Today’s Republican party: thugs, bullies, and other knuckle draggers.

  7. The people who follow a religion based on love for one another, and turning the other cheek, would like the freedom to conduct themselves in a manner that is the exact opposite of those beliefs? In public?

    Somebody has been drinking alcohol in holy places (Leviticus 10:9), and probably too much alcohol in unholy places as well. Like the bar down the street from the South Dakota state capitol.

  8. Kate Dungan says:

    Fredrick Douglas, ruminating on his years as a slave, said the worst masters were the ones who were ardent Christians.

    They KNEW that God agreed with everything they Had done, everything they were DOING, and all that they WOULD DO in the future.

    We are dealing with invincible ignorance.

  9. Ralph Wiggam says:

    I wonder how the conservative Supreme Court Justices feel about having their authority usurped by the South Dakota Legislature?

  10. This isn’t all that hard. Transitive property of maths, a=b, b=c, a=c.
    God loves human beans, having made ’em and all.
    Gays, lesbians, straights, transgendered, etc are human beans.
    God loves gays, lesbians, straights, transgendered, etc.
    Seeeee not THAT hard to reason through.
    Class dismissed. No charge. Have a nice day.

  11. Time for those morans to think about keeping the “Christ” in christian….

  12. Have we traveled back in time to the 60’s to fight for civil rights all over again? Let us
    hope that a federal lawsuit is brought which causes all manner of constitutional problems for those good hearted folks in South Dakota who think they have the right to treat other Americans as if they did not have the same rights as themselves. Martial law might be one answer.

  13. Marcia in CO says:

    Have to send this to a couple friends in Hot Springs, SD

  14. Polite Kool Marxist says:

    Holy Gomertz and shades of Stockyard. This is reminiscent of that ugly time in our history when it was illegal to teach slaves to read. Now SD doesn’t want homosexuals in their libraries leaning about what is happening with marriage equality in other states. Be very afraid girls and women, the state of “we hate everybody” has spoken.

    Close Ellsworth Air Force Base and any other federal facilities. Let SD secede.

  15. Old Mayfly, even as a kid when I didn’t know about teh gays (this was the late 50s) I thought it odd that he hung around with 12 unmarried guys.

  16. And they would secede to . . . ? Canada ain’t that handy and Mexico is too damn far away. But South Dakota does trade with other states. That might be the key, the breakdown of that trade until they stop thinking and acting like the Emperor Ming from the Planet Mongo.

  17. So, does that mean I can follow my religion and call people intolerant bigots if they discriminate due to sexual orientation?

  18. The proposed legislation specifies protection for refusing to serve or hire someone based on their sexual orientation. Doesn’t say “homosexual”. Does that mean I get to ask all my customers about their sexual habits and refuse to serve heteros? ‘cuz freedom and religion?

  19. Marge Wood says:

    Esse, I dare you.

  20. That would be the same Jesus who hung out with all those guys all the time?

  21. Came across a Horsey cartoon from last year:

    And on the 8th day, God got really creative…

    “Just for variety, I’m gonna make a few of ’em gay.”

    Angel: “Careful… remember what happened when you made ’em different colors!”,0,7309873.story

    I’m sorry this law is narrowly written so it allows only being nasty and cruel to people because of their sexual orientation. I was all ready to go to South Dakota and abominate people and refuse to patronize their businesses and not hire them and all that, because they were bigoted ***holes.

  22. I’ve said it before, and I guess this the first time (and probably NOT last!) I have said it in 2014: You cannot make this stuff up! Maybe it’s still 1914 in SD… 😉

  23. e platypus onion says:

    SoDak has a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage.

  24. UmptyDump says:

    Bet this bill came about because some bigoted South Dakota baker got all huffy and an argument ensued – just because of being asked to put one of these on top of a wedding cake.

    Talk about making mountains out of molehills …

  25. Captain Dan says:

    Evidently the South Dakota’s state legislature is not conversant with the First Amendment, since it starts “Congress (and as interpreted by the Supreme Court all government bodies in the US) shall make NO law respecting an establish of religion.”

    The probation against establishment, being stated first, obviously is more important than the remainder of the amendment.

  26. Yeah, Captain Dan, you’d think the establishment clause would have that covered.

    Meanwhile, SD is still stealing native children from their families and tribes, under the guise of protecting them, and giving them to white foster families. This has been going on, in one form or another, for a century.

    I still like the landscape, the hiking, and my friends on the rez.

  27. Marge Wood says:

    It’s so cold outside everyone’s inside arguing with computers. Thought I’d mention that a bunch of rich women helped support Jesus and his apostles, or that’s what I heard. I don’t recall any of us knowing much about the women in their lives except that the women were pretty reliably there, taking care of things and people.
    I hate this computer with Windows whatever it is that makes ads pop up all over the place and that lets things scoot around and change sizes all the time. Aargh. How do I keep things from changing sizes all the time and stay on default?

  28. e platypus onion says:

    Marge Wood-I am not a computer expert,but recently I had problems with redirects,pop up ads and it kept switching my homepage from google to about blank. I went into computer control center,brought up programs and features,opened that window to see what programs i had and noticed some strange names in there. I wrote down the names closed the program and googled the strange names to see if they were ad-related. If they are you can go back to programs and features and uninstall them There is an uninstall/change feature there so click the ad program and uninstall it or them,one at a time. Hope this helps. BTW th3ese odd malware type thingies install themselves when you search the internet.
