← Tennessee Goes Monkey Again

The intention of the new bill—introduced just one month after Jacob’s suicide – is to carve out an exemption for those bullies who can lay claim to a sincere religious motivation for their hatred.

While this is deeply disappointing, I guess it is not particularly surprising. So much of religious proselytizing amounts to adult bullying. Legalizing child bullying for religious reasons appears to be a thoughtful and proactive step to ensure that another generation of religious bigots and bullies are adequately trained.
