Georgia Governor Will Veto Anti-Gay Law; North Carolina Sued For Its Own Similar Law Comments (0)

Via New Civil Rights Movement: Republican Gov. Nathan Deal will veto his state's highly controversial, so-called “religious freedom” bill, which was in fact sweeping anti-gay legislation:

Governor Nathan Deal has just announced he will veto HB 757, an anti-gay “religious freedom” bill that has been condemned by dozens of large multi-national corporation that do business in Georgia. Several warned they would leave the Peach State should the discriminatory bill become law, and over 500 companies joined Georgia Prospers, a coalition devoted to opposing discrimination.

Gov. Deal said he would have signed HB 757 had it remained in its original form, the Pastor Protect Bill. He noted that many oppose the bill, but repeatedly stated that there are no instances in Georgia that have happened that would require HB 757. And he pointed to the Founding Fathers, and mentioned the late Antonin Scalia's theory of “negative protections,” suggesting the bill is overly broad.

But Deal also said he will not bow to threats, including those from the business community.

“I do not think we have to discriminate against anyone to protect the faith based community,” Deal said. “I believe it is about the character of of state, and the character of our people,” Deal said, announcing his veto.

The governor's full remarks are here.

This is a good example of why we need gay-rights orgs and loud-mouthed public figures “pandering” to gay interests—we need 24/7 pressure and attention to LGBT issues, or things erode quickly.

Without this type of attention, legislatures feel emboldened to sneak things through, which happened in North Carolina. Meanwhile, that state is facing its first of I'm sure many lawsuits over its ridiculous, unconstitutional anti-gay/anti-trans law.

Hard News: Gio Loves Tommy Comments (0)

ABC's Gio Benitez is treating his wedding to Tommy DiDario with all the low-key subtlety of a Real Housewife, spilling all the details to People magazine—and isn't it great we're at a place where gay people get to do that (if they want to), too?

Their story is actually v. romantic, including the quoting of a Broadway play and a surprise proposal in front of the Eiffel Tower.

Props to People for working into its story that Benitez “fell in love with hard news” in his native Miami.

Congrats to the happy couple.

Manny Pacquiao: Animals > Gays Comments (0)

TmzVideo still via TMZ

According to TMZ, Manny Pacquiao—who gets paid money to beat people up—said in a TV interview in his native Philippines of gays:

It's common sense. Will you see any animals where male is to male and female is to female? ... The animals are better. They know how to distinguish male from female. If we approve [of] male on male, female on female, then man is worse than animals.

He quickly apologized—sorta—in a video in which he reaffirmed his stance against gay marriage, but in which he said he was sorry he hurt anyone by comparing gay people to animals. Gee, thanks!

Conservatives on Twitter are complaining about the “outrage” machine over what people say, but isn't this a case where we are not talking about PC nomenclature, but hate speech? Are gay people and their supporters not supposed to react to being told we are subhuman by an influential cultural figure who intends to run for president in the Philippines?

Floyd Mayweather has responded to Pacquiao's caveman POV.
