Gay Bashing Double Header
What a gold star day for the Utah Legislature. They manage to pass not one, but two, gay-hating bills. First, on the Senate side, everyone's favorite teen-sex obsessed man-child Chris Buttars gets his bill passed, which is aimed at allowing school districts to do away with gay-straight alliances. This Adam-and-Steve hokester can't even keep his lies straight, going on the Senate floor to announce that the bill had nothing to do with gay-straight alliances, while all week he's been railing against just those alliances as nefarious "conditioning clubs" where unsuspecting youngsters will be sucked into a "deathstyle".
Not to be outdone, on the House side, equally wrinkly LaVar Christensen passed his bill, aimed at shutting down any attempts by any city in Utah to offer benefits to domestic partners. This particular bill was meant to shut down Salt Lake City's government, which has been working to come up with a domestic partnership provision. Though it's targeted directly at queers, the House bill also slams unmarried straight folks as well; I apologize if you hetero co-habitors out there managed to get "peppered" in the process. You gotta be on your toes when you hang around with the queers. The bat might catch you on the windup.
All is well indeed.
