Skip to comments.NASCAR: Indiana law fosters intolerance, exclusion

Perhaps Indiana Gove. Mike Pence and state lawmakers should revisit the religious freedom legislation. Theyve officially lost NASCAR , a sport that, despite its growing diversity, still has a strong conservative base.
NASCAR is disappointed by the recent legislation passed in Indiana, said NASCAR Senior Vice President and Chief Communications Officer Brett Jewkes, in a statement released Tuesday.
We will not embrace nor participate in exclusion or intolerance. We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our sport and therefore will continue to welcome all competitors and fans at our events in the state of Indiana and anywhere else we race.

It’s becoming clear a lot of large businesses are being operating by complete bumbling morons. Seriously over it.
Shut up and race.
No, NASCAR is NOT. YOU are, you phony quisling. I'll lay odds that if you ask the fans of NASCAR if they favor buggery, they'll overwhelmingly say NOOOOO! So who are you speaking for, asswad?
I guess what they’re saying is that the First Amendment with its Freedom of Speech and Religion fosters exclusion and intolerance. Hmmm. . . .
Talk about a business not understanding its customers...
Will they showcase a NAMBLA car?
So what's the point?
If you want to make a statement, cancel your events in Indiana. Otherwise, shut the hell up!
I wonder if and which one of the their sponsors put the pressure on them?
“Its becoming clear a lot of large businesses are being operating by complete bumbling morons.”
NO, it is abject COWARDICE!!
Listen to the caterwauling. Its madness.
Who will stand up to these fascists?
ordinarily when a concept this ripe for parody presents itself I will make a Banner to illustrate the goofiness of same
this one.....I dare not even think about.
Blah blah blah.....blah blah blah blah.....We will not embrace nor participate in exclusion or intolerance. We are committed to diversity and inclusion within our sport and therefore will continue to welcome all competitors and fans at our events in the state of Indiana and anywhere else we race. blah blah blah blah.
Tells me NASCAR is run by utterly stupid folks.
Yep. Never thought I'd see the day when a good number of Americans look more favorably at Iran than Indiana
Illinois has an identical law but nobody cares.
Now why is that?
This just a set up to create an issue for the 2016 elections.
They should prove they are committed to diversity. Maybe preferential seating for homosexuals. A special gate so the few of them that probably follow NASCAR won’t have to stand in line with all those bigoted Christians. After all, their statement against the Indiana law signals their support for elevating the way a person engages in sexual intercourse over to preferential citizen status.
My husband and I were talking about the wholesale love for queers and their behavior. It’s beyond reasonable explanation. Straight men cheer them on. I’ve heard women say that they actually find two homosexuals engaging in anal sex “hot.”
I truly and honestly believe it’s some kind of God-sent spiritual delusion...turning people over to their sins, if you will. I’m at a loss to explain it otherwise.
