Miley Cyrus, Hillary Clinton, & More Speak Out Against Indiana's New LGBT Discrimination Law!

no title

Indiana just passed the Religious Freedom Restoration Act after Governor Mike Pence signed it into law, and people are not happy!

Why?

Because the thrust of the new law is that businesses are now legally free to discriminate based on sexual orientation and gender identity as long as they claim their religion is against it.

But not all businesses want to turn people away based on prejudice. The NCAA and Gen Con have already threatened to lessen their presence or pull out of the state entirely.

Yep, the jocks AND the nerds are against it! LOLz!

But those aren't the only strange bedfellows this deplorable bill is making! Celebs from Miley Cyrus to Hillary Clinton have come out against the law on social media.

Umm… Did Kansas Governor Sam Brownback Just Remove Non-Discrimination Protections For LGBT State Employees???

Filed under: Gay Gay GayPolitikCrazzzzyLGBT

Oh and women can no longer vote!

… is what we expect Kansas Governor Sam Brownback might say next after pulling something like this.

He rescinded an executive order that protected state employees from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

This man literally undid the good that former Governor Kathleen Sebelius did for the LGBT community in Kansas.

The Human Rights Campaign's national field director Marty Rouse issued a statement:

Olympic Host Cities Now Have To Sign New Anti-Discrimination Clause As Part Of Contract! Finally!

Filed under: Gay Gay GayOlympicsAmazingLGBT

The IOC has amended the standard Olympic host city's contract to include an anti-discrimination clause to protect LGBT athletes!

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) sure took their sweet time protecting the rights of their LGBT athletes.

But we guess after the Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, it was time to take a stand.

Russia's anti-gay "propaganda" law must've been the straw that broke the camel's back. Glad it got the IOC to put a special clause in the contract all Olympic host cities must sign.

michelle duggar alleges that if new transgender anti discrimination rules are passed child predators will frequent public restrooms

This reality star is trying to use her influence to change some impending laws.

It's just a shame what she wants is rooted in ignorance and lack of human compassion — but we bet it's not gonna work!

19 Kids And Counting star Michelle Duggar recently recorded a message for the residents of Fayetteville, Arkansas, and it basically asked them to support her in her attempts to strike down a vote on stopping discrimination against transgender residents and giving them more rights in their community - including public restrooms.

The Ranting Rapper Returns!! Kanye West Slings Racist Accusations At Nike, Gucci & Louis Vuitton While Filling In For Drake!

kanye west wireless festival racist fashion rant

Well, we can't say we're surprised.

As we mentioned earlier, Drake has been sicky-poo so he had to bail on London’s Wireless Festival over the weekend. But luckily for Kanye West fans (and unluckily for Nike, Gucci, and Louis Vuitton), Yeezus was there to swoop in and take his place!

During 'Ye's performance of Runaway, however, the rapper was in a ranting mood and took a break from his song to absolutely rail on the fashion industry for 15 mins — which in turn caused him to be booed. And he had some very specific accusations for the aforementioned fashion labels!

Here's a brief segment of his rant:

Talk about bad business!

If you didn't hear this story last year, then buckle up because it's happening again!

Chase Bank has apparently decided to close quite a few bank accounts…and they all belong to people in the adult film industry!

If you'll recall, around this time last year, a lawsuit was filed against JPMorgan Chase claiming the bank violated fair lending laws and its policy for refusing to underwrite a loan for 'moral reasons.'

And now, the bank is apparently hitting the porn industry again as we've been EXCLUSIVELY told hundreds of letters went out to those in the adult film industry saying their accounts would be closed on May 11, 2014.

You can check out one letter and the deets we received along with it…AFTER THE JUMP!!
