Today we are mad






On Wednesday, North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory signed into law a bill blocking anti-discrimination rules that would protect gay and transgender people.


From NPR: http://www.npr.org/sections/thetwo-way/2016/03/24/471700323/north-carolina-passes-law-blocking-measures-to-protect-lgbt-people


NC State Government and the NC governor are a disgrace.


But wait - there's more.


Hidden in this disgusting bill is this -


"The bill would bar cities or counties from imposing their own minimum wage. So any move to establish a local minimum wage higher than the $7.25 an hour federal minimum wage would be a nonstarter. This has been done by other cities such as Seattle, which is phasing in a $15 an hour minimum wage."


So.


The folks who might actually support the bill thinking it was all about bathrooms???


Pffttt.


Consider yourselves played.


Again.




Wake up North Carolina. These people are not "for" you.  They could not care less about you.




In the meantime, "American Airlines, Wells Fargo and other major businesses across the state and nation are taking a stand against a bill signed into law Wednesday by N.C. Gov. Pat McCrory . . .

I say - Good!

Money talks.

The leadership in this state does not give a flying fig about the people and what's good for us, but they surely do like money. The more some big corporation can stuff in their pockets, the happier they are. When some other big corporations start speaking out against hatred, stupidity and bigotry (in the name of money, of course), perhaps they'll start paying attention. Might not be for the right reasons, but we'll take what we can get at this point.


And  so - we also have this: 
Pro-Equality Groups Considering Legal Challenge to North Carolina’s Sweeping Anti-LGBT Law

I have found one bright spot of joy in today's news.  I found it at Facebook and I share it with you in hopes it gives you a bit of faith as it did me.  

STOP these hypocrites who are trying to convince you hatred is the Christian way.

I would like to shake this man's hand. 

Hug his neck. 

Thank him for speaking out.

And I'm asking where are his brothers in Christ who are refusing to take a stand as this man is doing?
