Salesforce won't travel to Indiana over religious freedom law

Source: Indianapolis Star

Soon after Gov. Mike Pence signed the religious freedom bill into law Thursday, Salesforce.com founder and CEO Marc Benioff announced on Twitter that he would no longer send employees or customers to Indiana.

"Today we are canceling all programs that require our customers/employees to travel to Indiana to face discrimination," he tweeted.

Salesforce, a cloud computing company headquartered in San Francisco, acquired Indianapolis-based marketing software company ExactTarget last year for $2.5 billion.

... In a tweet sent out to his 150,000 followers Wednesday night, Benioff said his cloud computing company would be "forced to dramatically reduce (its) investment in IN based on (its) employee's & customer's outrage over the Religious Freedom Bill."

Then the Ravens could move back to Cleveland, and the present-day Browns could fill the void in L.A. Problem solved!

...but if anybody's going to LA, it should be the Ravens.

- Because, seniority:

The Cleveland Browns were founded in 1945 by businessman Arthur B. “Mickey” McBride and coach Paul Brown as a charter member of the All-America Football Conference (AAFC), which began play the following year. The Cleveland Browns went on to dominate the AAFC, compiling a 47–4–3 record in the league's four active seasons and winning its championship in each of them. When the AAFC folded after the 1949 season, the Browns joined the National Football League (along with the San Francisco 49ers and the original Baltimore Colts). link

You can go to the Dan Quayle Museum and see such things as:

1. His spelling homework (tomato - tomatoe)

2. Brilliant quotes:

* "It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."

*"What a terrible thing to have lost one's mind. Or not to have a mind at all. How true that is."

*"We will invest in our people, quality education, job opportunity, family, neighborhood, and yes, a thing we call America."

Really, how could you EVAR pass that up (I looked up "evar" in the Dan Quayle Dictionary and that was OK!)

Michael Jackson
Mohammed Ali
David Letterman
Jane Pauley (Garry Trudeau's wife).

just to name a few of those that left the state and are known worldwide now. Like me, I left the state and only go back for visits to my elderly Mother. You have to understand that most of the population of Indiana came from the southern states like Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, etc. Those people got up there in the 40s and 50s when there were manufacturing jobs that the south didn't have. Some of those people never left the state after that, like ever. There are a lot of us that left the state in the 80s-00s because those jobs went to the no-union south, then Mexico, then China and India.

They paid $2.5 billion for a company in IN and are not sending customers or employees there and are considering reducing their presence there. That's more than a gesture. Regardless of what you think of their product.

Here's a question. Let's say you do business with people in Indiana. Do you adopt a don't ask don't tell approach or do you come right out and ask if they discriminate based on religion?

I have no love of SaleForce either since it essentially tried to close down several good open-source alternatives to CRM.

I also have no stomach for McDonalds (or PizzaHut/Cocolala) but my personal dislike of their products does not diminish my plaudits for any corporation that uses this tactic to fight against the racist/misogynist plutocrats that are trying to take over this poor country. I might even take a bite of something of theirs if they'll follow suit.

After all, all those people (kochs and wannabes) understand is when their bottom line is severely impacted.

The list of states I won't visit or drive through is increasing so much, I now have to fly just about anywhere I want to go. Quit driving to the jazz fest in NO 15 years ago after being harassed, shaken down, by the cops in rural LA. We have flown there every year since then, it's a wonderful event. Quit driving in TX and MS after threatening behavior in restaurants 25 years ago. Won't go to the other places due to their dumbfuckery and bad laws now.

All those fucking Nixon felons who went to jail, some of 'em "found Jesus," and all of 'em wrote books, memoirs and stuff. There arose a movement urging - "don't buy books by crooks."

Of course both of these nice little organizations collect a lot more than your body images when you fly into/out of their control.

It amazes me that major conventions still book venues in these dumb-ass states. How about we all agree to not drive/fly into any state that has a red governor or a 'uglican-controlled legislature? Wouldn't bother me a-tall.

Right now, though, it seems safer than the alternative of driving through some of these crazy ass states. I often refuse to go through the scanner things, it's such an invasion of privacy. The pat downs aren't as intrustive as the scanners, IMO. Only if time if short will I go through the scanners.

This last anti-gay bill was made possible by a Democratic state senator. It would not have passed if not for him. The governor said he would sign it before the Democrat okayed it out of committee.

I think that summarized our national problem. The republicans in Washington can almost be handled, it's the damn democrats that stab us in the backs that hurt the most.

Also one of the better camping areas we stayed in.

28. Which state are you from? Hard to trust a state where the 'uglicans have taken control

Whether they back down for the time being. Sort of like when the confederacy lost its battle to enslave other people, pretended to rejoin the union of humans, and then reverted to its old boy attitudes.

Has anyone looked at the genetic possibilities that these white mainly southern people just can't control themselves? Perhaps they are just incapable of rational though and action - perhaps they should be treated as sub-humans (fair play?).

31. Mike Pence is a Dominionist.

 

I've been reading up on Ted Cruz, and his crazy pastor father's belief in the "Seven Mountains mandate" and the "being the head and not the tail" and all that. It is scary.

Seven Mountains Dominionism has a plan to defeat the forces of Satan, attain the goal of a Christian theocracy in America and eventually the entire world, in order to prepare the world for the return of Christ. There are seven sections of the culture targeted for infiltration: 1) government, 2) education, 3) media, 4) arts & entertainment, 5) religion, 6) family, and 7) business.

Business is the most important area to control. "So much of culture is defined by what happens in business," they say. Watch the vid at http://www.7culturalmountains.org

This isn't far off in the future. As we see, this is happening now.

59. Some large corporations with Indiana plants will be forced

to come to terms with this law vis a vis their company non-discrimination policies. If General Motors, Chrysler, Eli Lilly, Subaru, Cummins Diesel move to another state it would break Indiana. Thanks republicans!

69. I would love to see a person open a business in Indiana and discriminate against Christians.

"Grandma's Bakery, No Christians Allowed." When asked, Grandma could say her religion opposes Christians.

72. Not to mention, Texas.

Although, a recent study showed that most big cities in Texas trend liberal. It's all the teahadist-heavy rural areas down here that keep churning out the crazies. Plus, the fact that we've got the lowest voter turnout in the nation. If we Hispanics got off our duffs and voted, there wouldn't be another Republican voted to the lege for generation. Vayan a votar, arrastrados!

73. I just love Republican branding of laws

"Religious Freedom Act', "Clean Air Act", "Right to Work", "Clean Water", etc. You can damn well bet that if they name it, they will be attacking whatever is in the title.

Bravo to Salesforce and Mr. Benioff.
