GOP War On Gays Rages On As Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal Plans To Sign Anti-Gay Bill
Louisiana Republican Governor Bobby Jindal announced Tuesday that he intends to sign the ”Louisiana Marriage and Conscience Act” into law when it crosses his desk. In a written statement, Jindal spokesperson Shannon Bates Dirmann wrote: Yes, we support the bill. This is a common sense bill that provides necessary protections for individuals to prevent adverse treatment from the state based on religious beliefs regarding marriage.The bill was introduced into the Louisiana legislature by State Rep. Mike Johnson (R-Bossier City). The legislation would allow private businesses to refuse to recognize legal same-sex marriages. The law is more far-reaching than the controversial Indiana “religious freedom” law which sparked national outrage. The Louisiana measure would grant a private company the right to deny gay and lesbian couples the same benefits that they provide for straight married couples.
And if any of those businesses ‘close’ because of the ‘Gay Mafia,’ it too could make $1 million like the Indiana pizza business.

In a video published to YouTube on Tuesday, a gay Irish man contacted the infamously anti-LGBT Westboro Baptist Church for advice on going to heaven.
Last week, Riyadh K’s video of his mother reading YouTube comments went viral, and it included a message from de facto Westboro leader Shirley Phelps: “This is what happens when the fag enablers turn the country to the fags. These people are going to hell.”
In all, Riyadh said that Phelps used the word “fag” 41 times in his YouTube comments.
Riyadh decided to give Phelps a call this week to find out how to avoid going to hell.
“You are heading straight to hell,” Phelps told the video blogger. “God hates fags. You cannot change that standard. It doesn’t matter if you can get this entire goofy, disobedient nation… read the words and obey your God.”
I have to say, I always have a love-hate with Shirley. She is so entertaining.

Activist Scott Wooledge has launched #Pizza4Equality, which has raised $35,000 for Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund for homeless LGBT kids:
There is much disgust and consternation in the LGBT community over a viral fundraiser effort, that has as of this writing, earned $842,387. Many have lamented, “If only our cause could raise that much money that fast.”
I say, yes, we can.
So I looked and saw that Cyndi Lauper’s True Colors Fund has set April 29 as the first national #40toNoneDay to end #LGBT youth homelessness! And I thought, would it not be totally awesome if we equality supporters (and pizza lovers) could match that #MemoriesPizza “charity” by April 29? Can we match their amount and help homeless youth get off the street, learn life skills and get an education and jobs?
I’m an dreamer, but I say yes, we can!
All proceeds will go to The True Colors Fund which works to end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth, creating a world in which young people can be their true selves.
