It’s so nice to be back home.  LOL  The message is clear and very needed in the Tampa Bay Area with the great preponderance of intolerance and bigotry that abounds in this one-horse cow-town suburb of Chicago.  After a decade of absence from these communities around the bay the only consistent is the hate and that seems to have amplified.

From Think Progress comes this joyous piece of news of Government manipulation of media and open homophobia all rolled up into one in the person of State Representative Stephen Precourt:

State representative Stephen Precourt, whose district includes Disney World, says the purpose of the credit is to encourage movies to depict cinematic life from the 1960s. “Think of it as like Mayberry,” Precourt told the Palm Beach Post News. “That’s when I grew up — the ’60s. That’s what life was like. I want Florida to be known for making those kinds of movies: Disney movies for kids and all that stuff. Like it used to be, you know?”

Precourt claims that his provision does not specifically target movies with gay characters but “asked if shows with gay characters should get the tax credit, he said, ‘That would not be the kind of thing I’d say that we want to invest public dollars in.’”

Florida has been recognized by for being one of the least gay-friendly states in America. Florida has no statewide law prohibiting discrimination; its constitution prohibits gay marriage; and, it is the only state in the union that forbids gays from adopting children.

What can one expect from a State with 54 hate-based organizations that center about Cults of Jesus or Cults of Allah?  Florida demonstrates all that is evil in organized religion and religious leaders.  From the State that brought us Anita Bryant and the initial Cults of Jesus hate campaigns leveled against the LGBT Communities this purchased politician is graphic example of the “conservative” ignorance based, “it’s always better back then” regressive bigots.

Whatever happened to the “Question Authority” attitude of Americans?  Our journalism is non-existent and the mythology of “Fair and Balanced” from Faux Nuz points this out clearly.  We have no spines and behave as the recently robbed.  Oh that’s right; we are recently robbed.  We believe we are powerless and as a result we are powerless.  Americans don’t vote but sure do bitch about the conditions in Washington, DC without understanding that we are responsible for this debacle too.

And for even more news from the Cults of Jesus Hate and Fear-mongering right comes California Senator, Mr DUI with a trick in the government vehicle, Roy Ashburn confessing his Gay-ness and the man is clearly NOT FABULOUS.  The Huffington Post reports. I wish I had a nickel for every self-hating homophobe who has created fear, spread his or her personal flavor of hate and influenced other lives without honesty.
