Weekend update

Copyright NBCI’m sorry that I’m not going to be as funny as the Saturday Night Live crew, but I had to share a few updates on some of the things I linked to just yesterday:

While Indiana and Arkansas have passed so-called Religious Freedom bills, a democratic legislator in Georgia may have successfully derailed the bill there simply by proposing an amendment to add language that the bill isn’t meant to condone discrimination. The amendment failed, but: How To Kill A Discriminatory ‘Religious Liberty’ Bill: Call The Bluff.

Several companies, conventions, and associations have gone on record that the passage of the license to discriminate bill may lead them to pull their business from states that pass them: 8 Entities Protesting Indiana’s New LGBT Discrimination Law and Apple CEO Tim Cook Warns Arkansas Not To Pass Anti-Gay Bill Like Indiana.

Blogger Amelia put the proposed initiative in California allowing private citizens to execute gay people into even starker perspective: A Man in California Wants to Kill My Son. And people are proposing changes to the state constitution to make such ridiculous bills less likely: Must Sadism Be Cleared to Gather Signatures?

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. I publish an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live in Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
