You only need to know that Arizona Mensa chapter leader Jan Brewer and now Gov. Nathan Deal of Georgia have rejected these hate-fueled bills gussied up as promoting religious freedom to know just how stupid North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory truly is.
“In light of our history, I find it somewhat ironic that some in the religious community today feel that it is necessary for government to confer upon them certain rights and protections,” Mr. Deal said at the State Capitol, where he had faced intense pressure from the bill’s supporters and critics. “If indeed our religious liberty is conferred upon us by God, and not by man-made government, perhaps we should simply heed the hands-off admonition of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.”While I'm sure he only did it to sidestep the economic backlash -- and lawsuits -- North Carolina now faces, I applaud the Georgia governor just the same.
