Bucking under to media pressure and threatened boycotts from the NFL and the NBA, Republican Georgia Governor Nathan Deal has vetoed religious freedom legislation. The media keep reporting it as an “anti-gay” bill and keep putting scare quotes around “religious freedom” as if it were some kind of code.

You see, Deal doesn’t believe in the kind of religious liberty that actually ensures liberty for actual people. Well, to put a point on it, he doesn’t like anything that might make him unpopular with the media. He says he believes in religious freedom for clergy but not for regular people. Because you know the Constitution wasn’t at all concerned with religious liberty for regular people and all.

Coward. Dude’s heart pumps Kool-Aid instead of blood.

Note: Prostitutes usually accept payment in advance, Governor Deal. Just so you know, they don’t settle for “good press to be named later.”
