A bill (SB276) passed by the Montana Senate in late February that would strike an obsolete law criminalizing homosexuality from the books got a hearing before the Montana House Judiciary Committee this week.
Unfortunately, members of the committee did not hear Sen. Facey when he said “words matter.” Throughout the hearing, GOP members constantly equated homosexuality with bestiality and pedophilia.
