Senate Republicans Kill LGBT Non-Discrimination Bill in Utah

Senate Republicans in Utah killed an LGBT non-discrimination bill on Wednesday afternoon that would have prohibited housing and employment bias against gays and lesbians, the Salt Lake Tribune reports:

SteveSenate leaders had said repeatedly they didn’t want to consider any bills affecting gay and lesbian issues while the state is appealing a federal judge’s ruling overturning Utah’s constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage.

Votes in the GOP caucus are supposed to be secret, but sources confirmed that [Sen. Steve Urquhart, R-St. George] was the only vote in favor of hearing the bill this session. Urquhart said Wednesday he didn’t ask leadership to take the vote.

The bill had "broad public backing" according to the paper.

Pat Robertson Knocks Creationist Ken Ham for 'Making a Joke of Himself' at Debate: VIDEO

Robertson

Televangelist Pat Robertson reacted to last night's debate between 'Science Guy' Bill Nye and creationist Ken Ham by attacking Ham.

Robertson doesn't "believe in evolution as nontheistic" but he begs creationist Ken Ham to "not make a joke of ourselves" with his ridiculous theory that everything on Earth has been around for a few thousand years.:

"Let’s face it, there was a bishop [Ussher] who added up the dates listed in Genesis and he came up with the world had been around for 6,000 years. There ain’t no way that’s possible. To say that it all came about in 6,000 years is just nonsense and I think it’s time we come off of that stuff and say this isn’t possible."

He added: "Let’s be real, let’s not make a joke of ourselves."

Gay Minnesota Teen Gets Death Threat After Coming Out on Facebook: VIDEO

Eichenauer

A police investigation is underway in Circle Pines, Minnesota after Ryan Eichenauer, a gay student at Centennial High School who recently came out of the closet, received an anonymous death threat in his English class, KMSP reports:

"I know there are going to be people in life who don't agree with it. But that's who I am," he said.

Eichenauer says that within weeks of coming out he had two threatening anonymous letters placed on his desk in two separate classrooms, the latest one on Tuesday:

Not only does the note attack his sexuality, but it says "I can't wait for the day that I get to walk over your grave and if you don't put yourself there, I will be glad to. Just do us all a favor and do it soon. Kill yourself already."

Letter

More of the letter:

"Ryan, I see there are many others who also want you dead. Good. And it's not just the two of us who have decided to speak up. It's everyone. […] like you don't deserve to live in this world. Innocent people die every day, but the scum of the earth like you gets to live? […] that. That is about to change. No one likes the fact that you are alive. No one likes the way you show your sexuality. You are a […] sinner. Someone should do something about it…I will. I am not a coward. I protect the house of god from […] like you."

Eichenauer says he's definitely afraid:

"A little scared, I feel safe in my school. Right now, mostly uncomfortable....The first threat I cried a lot. A lot of tears and emotions. Even though that was less threatening. Then this one came along. Is this what I am going to get forever, from now on?"
