GROSS!! Arizona Passes A DISGUSTING Bill That Gives People A "Right To Discriminate" And Is Now One Step Away From Being A Law!

Filed under: PolitikSad SadZooey DeschanelGIFsNews

arizona discrimination bill is close to passing

This is such a fail, Arizona.

We can't even believe something like would even be proposed, let alone PASSED in 2014.

Arizona has passed a bill basically giving people the "right to discriminate" against others based on their religious beliefs.

Ughhhhhhh, don't we have separation of church and state for a reason?!

Basically, the bill allows people, companies, and religious bodies the right to use their religious beliefs as a legitimate defense in a lawsuit for discrimination.

Aka if someone refused to hire an employee based on the fact that they were, say, gay or even a single mother, the company could defend themselves by saying it was against their religious beliefs to hire said person.

Gross, gross, groooooosssssss.

Republican representative Steve Montenegro defended the law by saying:

Venezuelan beauty queen Genesis Carmona shot in the head during peaceful protest

Guys, we're about to get super serious for a minute…

There are some terrible and tragic things happening in Venezuela due to their political turmoil. Students and activists have been peacefully protesting their government's social and economic crisis due to the illegitimate & corrupt government.

However, that very same government and their military have turned these peaceful protests deadly.

Which only further proves the point that these protests are NEEDED to bring light to the Venezuelan people's suffering.

This brings us to Genesis Carmona and her vicious and unjust death.

The 22 year-old beauty queen was brutally shot in the head during one of those peaceful protests and succumbed to her injuries in a hospital yesterday.

So, so terrible.

A family member of hers spoke out on her death and the terrible events happening in Venezuela

Filed under: Sad SadOlympicsSnow SportsDogRescue

Sochi locals are rushing to rescue as many stray dogs as possible before the government murders them!

It seems like things in Sochi just keep getting worse!!

We've all heard the horrors about the hotel rooms and how journalists are trying to make the best of the spartan conditions.

We also previously mentioned something far worse… they're killing thousands of stray dogs to clean up the city, making way for the Winter Games.

The government wants the dogs gone before

Prince William & Prince Charles On Their Way To Protect Animals! Royal Father & Son Make A Trip To Highlight Illegal Wildlife Trade!

Princes William and Charles wanna help stop the illegal wildlife trade!!

Prince William and his father Prince Charles are going to be pretty busy mid-February.

They're going to spend all their time between February 9th and 13th trying to help out animals by highlighting the illegal wildlife trade.

First, they'll head to the United for Wildlife Symposium at the Zoological Society London, then they'll head to a reception at the Natural History Museum. It's an event hosted by the U.K. government for the London Conference on the Illegal Wildlife Trade.

After that, they'll be attending the actual conference where the Duke of Cambridge and the Prince of Wales are really on top of their animal conservation game! They've got one hell of a busy week!

And a lot of it has to do with Princess Diana's legacy.

She instilled in them a love of animals, which Prince William plans to pass on to his son Prince George… in the form of a jungle-themed room!

So cute! Way to help the animals, you two!!

Sochi Kills Thousands Of Stray Dogs For Winter Olympics To "Clean Up The City!"

Filed under: Sad SadOlympicsAnimal RightsDogRescueDisgusting!Animal Cruelty

Sochi kills thousands of stray dogs for Winter Olympics cause they're just awful.

This isn't the first time we've heard of a stray dog genocide happening in an Eastern European country.

Sadly, it probably won't be the last either.

Russia doesn't have the right idea about a lot of things generally when it comes to rights - both human and animals rights.

That's why the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics are so controversial. Not only is the country not changing its ridiculous anti-gay laws, they're killing dogs.

Sochi officials announced they'd cull 2,000 strays cats and dogs in an effort to clean up the city.

People obviously flipped out and the city called it off, but unfortunately

Ricky Gervais is always more than willing to throw in his two cents.

Especially if the topic of discussion is related to animals, the environment or some combo of the two.

We previously mentioned that Western Australia had begun a government-sponsored, controversial shark culling program.

He tweeted:

Did Lea Michele's Letter Push NY's Governor To Crack Down On Puppy Mills??

Lea Michele introduces her new pooch named Pearl in a sexy photoshoot

New York Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo has got the right idea!

The governor signed a bill that will allow local municipalities to enact and enforce their own laws regarding commercial dog breeding facilities, aka puppy mills.

The law not only allows them to regulate themselves, but also makes it easier to crack down harder on breeders than ever before in New York, which now means that pet dealers will be able to oversee how the pups are raised as far as health and safety conditions are concerned.

Local governments can even require that pet shops only sell dogs raised in a healthy, safe environment, basically denying puppy mills the ability to sell dogs.

The bill was supported not only by the Humane Society of the United States but also Lea Michele!!

Lea had literally written NY's governor a letter only a few days before he signed the new bill, writing:
