THEY TOLD ME THAT IF GEORGE W. BUSH WERE RE-ELECTED, the morality police would be wielding a heavy hand. And they were right! “The Boston Globe reports that Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is trying to sneak a provision to criminalize online gambling. The bill, if passed, would make online gambling punishable by up to 2 years in prison and $25k in fines.”

But there’s more: “Ironically, the provision is buried deep within a bill to allow the construction of three new casinos in Massachusetts to bring more gambling revenue into the state.” As Rev. Lovejoy says, if the state does it, it’s not immoral!

UPDATE: Reader Glenn Howe emails with the correct Lovejoy quote: “Once something has been approved by the Government, It’s no longer immoral.”
