Montana GOP policy: Make homosexuality illegal
Considering that the U.S. Supreme Court ruled some seven years ago that such a law would be unconstitutional, it's a non-issue. Just more blustering from a bunch of fools.
I used to think about the U.S. in terms of the historical sources of its culture: Puritanism and the Enlightenment. The two are still in conflict.
Mt. where sheep out number people and would appear that sheep are the more intelligent.
Where else would you expect to find the last gasp of Republican homophobia but Montana, a state whose biggest source of air pollution is bovine flatulence? If they can swing it, perhaps they can round up the three or four thousand gay folk who haven't yet fled and put them into camps run by an American version of Ilse Koch, the Bitch of Buchenwald...say, maybe Sarah Palin? I hear she's looking for a new, high-profile job.
This is yet another exercise in Magical Thinking and yet another example of how theocons are effectively discrediting any pretense to the "smaller government" mantra that hasn't been truly espoused by the GOP in decades, polemics notwithstanding.
There is a vast chasm between recognizing (and celebrating) diversity via demographic recognition (the much-maligned "hyphenated Americans") and perpetuating an us/them animosity, which has already been found unconstitutional by SCOTUS, as RedDude pointed out above me.
The larger question is why the criminalization of consensual adult behavior is considered "red meat" and "feel-good efforts" (when obviously futile) among Republicans. Since when is intolerance and hate a virtue? In light of the fact that Matthew Shepard was murdered in Montana, this is especially ignorant and reactionary at the basest of levels.
