Mike: I’m going to pull up CNN for just a minute.

Male Reporter: . . . HB 757 an act to so-called defend religious freedoms. It was based solely on faith-based institutions . . . [Mike: Nathan Deal, the cowardly governor of Georgia, has just vetoed the Religious Liberty Restoration Act.] . . . by LGBT legislation. They thought it was further discrimination. Supporters of the bill said it would not further discrimination but rather protect their religious freedoms in this country . . . [Mike: You don’t have any religious freedoms, pal.] . . . a huge supporter of this bill. Senator Mike Crane, one of the biggest advocates of the bill, said that this would protect the attacks of the Christian morals and values that are under attack in this country. The governor clearly did not agree and just a few moments ago said that he will veto House Bill 757, so-called religious liberty bill here in the State of Georgia.

Mike: So Nathan Deal, again, the cowardly governor of Georgia is going to veto this. He’s following in the footsteps now of Mike Pence of Indiana. Who was the governor of Arkansas? Who was the cowardly governor of Arkansas? [mocking] “We’re all Christians here but we’re not that kind of Christian. Look, we can’t put this into law. Apple may not build a plant here.”
I was reading about this the other day. I’ll get back to Ted Cruz in just a moment. I was reading about this the other day, about how a bunch of homosexual activists are threatening that if Deal signed this bill, if Nathan Deal signed this bill, which – folks, you don’t have to have – this is an example of how the authority and how our system is just totally crocked, 100 percent crocked. The state will now not defend the faith and the system of belief and behavior that is necessary for you to get to heaven. They won’t defend it. [mocking] “Wait a minute now. These people have the right to sodomize.” Remember, error has no rights. Christianity is not Christianity without the denial.
You can’t get to the resurrection until you’ve gone through the passion of the death. We forget that. We allow people to mouth off and say things and then honor them with rewards and riches who have also forgotten it. Your walk with Christ as a Christian is not a hop and a skip to the gingerbread house. It’s not gumdrops and moonbeams. It’s not all sugar and spice and everything nice. It’s difficult.
The world is going to do to you Georgians – now you’re called upon to be real white martyrs, my friends in Georgia. Now you’re called upon to defy your governor and to defy the radical homosexuals that are threatening that they won’t act in movies or television shows if the State of Georgia does not turn its back on the God man and the Christian religion itself. Of course, you’ll hear all this ballyhooed pluralistic arguments about, [mocking] “It’s a benign general defense of religion.” No, there’s only one. There can’t be more than one God. There can’t be more than one magisterium. There’s only one. The Georgia legislature acted – I didn’t read the bill, so I can’t say I have firsthand knowledge of it. Maybe someone who’s a Georgian can call and fill us in on it. I don’t know what was in the bill. I just know what the title is.
Here’s the governor of Georgia explaining why he in 2016 is still a Pharisee denying the divinity of Christ’s teaching and vetoing this bill:

Female Reporter: . . . decided to veto that bill. Let’s listen to exactly why from his own lips.
Governor Deal: As I stated before, I do not think that we have to discriminate against anyone to protect the faith-based community in Georgia, of which I and my family have been a part of for all or our lives. Our actions on House Bill 757 are not just about protecting the faith-based community or providing business-friendly climate for job growth in Georgia. I believe it is about the character of our state and the character of our people. Georgia is a welcoming state. It is full of loving, kind, and generous people. And that is what we should want. They choose to worship God in the way they see fit in a myriad of ways, in a variety of different settings. I believe that that is our best side. And our people every day work side by side without regard for the color of their skin of their fellow mate, or the religion that their coworker might adhere to. They are simply trying to make life better for themselves, their families, and their communities. [Mike: You can’t make life better by being an apostate.] That is the character of Georgia. I intend to do my part to keep it that way. For that reason, I will veto House Bill 757. Thank you.

Mike: That is the most preposterous, ridiculous freaking argument I have ever heard. Have you ever heard anything more disjointed and contradictory? Either you have a faith or you don’t. If you have a faith then you defend it. If you have a moral code that’s based on the faith, then you defend it. You don’t run around and say: Well, they’re free to practice it any way they want. No, they’re not! You’re not supposed to tell people to go out and sin.
You’re not supposed to tell people to go out and do things that the moral code and the tradition of all Western Christian civilization says you should not do. Good grief! Where do these people come from? I tell you, is there anyone left, is there anyone in government that will put the rights of God first? How about God’s rights? What about the Creator’s rights? What about His point of view? What about His perspective? What about His insistence that certain things be done in a certain way? Who’s going to speak for him? The legislature spoke and acted.
This is one of these instances here where democracy is just demolished. Democracy and even republican government is just demolished because a couple of whiny-butt homosexual-endorsing activists threatened to not make a movie in Georgia and the governor vetoes the bill to “protect religious liberty.” Let’s review. What does that mean? [mocking] “Please, Mr. Church, talk about something relevant.” This is relevant. What just happened? What did we just learn? What we just learned is that you can put God on a ballot. Even if you elect someone thinking they’re going to do the right thing, you can put God on the ballot and you can put Him into the system of government, or try and inject him into a system of government and a government can reject him. Government can cast a vote or a government can veto or nullify a vote that is cast, as you just heard, and can undo the action. That’s what democracy does. Happy?

Like the guy said, we had a revolution against taxation without representation. How’s taxation with representation working out for you? Here’s another one for you. How is morality, how is moral codes, how is the state of your family’s souls, how is your pursuit of holiness, how’s that working out for you in Indiana, Arkansas, and now Georgia? All because the almighty dollar must be pursued. That’s exactly what just happened.
