    I bet they go to bed every night and pray that their sky faerie protect their heaven sent right to discriminate agaist the icky queers.

  2. RWG says

    Wasn’t Romer v Evans supposed to put an end to this kind of blanket discrimination and denial of rights?

    A lot of allies travelled long distances to give testimony-and were, for the most part, derailed by the GOP majority. But our voices will be heard.
    Hopefully, more press will shine a light into this scary, dark cave called the MT Legislature.

  4. says

    I wonder how many other minorities would accept being EXCLUDED from the Constitution and still pay their taxes year after year after year? Are we Americans or NOT?!

    “All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.” ~ United States Constitution; 14th Amendment, Section 1

    I’m not sure which offends me more: the fact that republicans still call themselves “conservative” when they are becoming the more radical political party in America or the fact that they want to abolish the Declaration of Independence. It clearly states, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.” I cannot believe that the GOP really want to return control of this country to the king (or queen) of England. That reverses everything this country is suppose to stand for.

    The Radical Religious Right (RRR) is pushing a similar bill through committee in the Kansas Legislature now. They introduced the hateful bill the day after Manhattan City Council passed a discrimination protections ordinance. The conservatives are worried about sharia but the RRR is pushing the same crap! Democracy not Theocracy!

    Those “small-government” Republicans sure like to use big-government tactics and religious bigotry to meddle in our lives. Yet they pretend it’s about the economy . . . liars.

  8. Sargon Bighorn says

    Remember these moments when state law makers say jobs or the economy are very important. These moments show their true colors.

  9. says

    It’s simply coming to the point where rogue ideology gets put into play simply because these elected officials aren’t interested in governing- they’re interested in pushing theological positions and legislating morality.
    Like radical Islamists.

  10. JJ says

    We need to protest the injustice of this country. Even today, the USA mistreats gays and lets others take away their rights and happiness.

  11. terryp says

    We have to get out in streets, as in WI, as
    in Egypt. These repugs scare me. When in hell is America going to wake up. The
    nazi repugs are marching to kill us. What
    an awful Sunday this is…

    What discusted me the most was the smile Harris Himes put on his face when he said the words “put to death”. Frightening.

  13. Brian says

    So Mr. Himes, suppose as an atheist, I won’t hire or rent to religious believers based on religious grounds. Will you support amendment of the law to allow me that freedom too?

    (Of course he wouldn’t.)
