Utah is trying to pull a "fast one."

http://modernatheist.org/2015/02/14/the-lds-church-and-civil-rights...

Following the disingenuous statements by LDS Church officials last week – ostensibly supporting anti discrimination measures for members of the LGBT community in housing and employment – the focus has been effectively diverted and short-stopped. And is being held hostage by the Mormon Legislature’s focus on proposed legislation, ostensibly needed to “Protect Religious Freedoms,” called for by The LDS Church as well.

Draper Republican LaVar Christensen’s proposed legislation fails to even address LGBT issues directly. Rather, he feels any concerns are adequately covered by the hate crimes law – passed 9 years ago – that says all Utah citizens should be free from discrimination in housing and employment. But if that were only the case, wouldn’t you think he’d also recognize that everyone’s ‘religious freedoms’ have been adequately protected – under the United States Constitution – for the last 240 years?

The elephant in the room? LaVar Christensen was the original author of Utah’s failed Proposition III – since thrown under the bus by the Federal Courts – that specifically denied same sex marriage in Utah.

Sour grapes? Plan B is a transparent attempt to enact Jim Crow-type laws, that would allow ongoing discrimination, by Mormon Church members, against those of the LGBT community. This time, under the guise of Personal Religious Conviction.

Let me just point to a few of the problems, with this truck-load of pious deceit.

Oregon to have the USA's first openly bisexual governor.    This follows scandals related to current governor Democrat John Kitzhaber's heterosexual relationship, something about his fiance's influence peddling or some such almost-Republischer behavior.  I don't know, I quit paying attention to Portland and Oregon politics when the place went hipster, grieving the formerly grungy pre-yuppy brewery district.  

Sorry, I digress.  Anyway, Oregon Secretary of State Kate Brown is openly bisexual, has a good record, and is a promising likely new Governor for the state of Oregon. 

The last high level openly LGBT person in Oregon was Portland Mayor Sam Brown, who had a sex scandal with underage Intern Beau Breedlove, although the underage part was supposedly  just 2 fairly chaste sounding kisses on the lips, and there was no sex until after Breedlove's 18th birthday.  Adam's career seems to have gone down the toilet, so we need for Brown to behave so we don't keep getting politicians who tarnish our reputation.   I don't know what's happened to Breedlove, or if that's even his real name.

With same-sex marriage coming to Alabama, local news is on the lookout.  Sort of.  And you never know about squirrels.

Comment by sk8eycat on February 12, 2015 at 8:35pm

Pat, I'm getting to the point where majority voters like those in Alabama and Kansas frighten me.  Their willful ignorance is appalling/

Comment by Pat on February 12, 2015 at 7:05pm

Bertold, your second point is painfully true. Same thing with Chief Justice Moore of Alabama. He was thrown off the bench and the rubes put him back on there. Voters of the likes who are in Alabama and Kansas - think American Taliban.

Comment by Bertold Brautigan on February 12, 2015 at 6:55pm

@ Pat - Hey, you're being way too harsh and critical about poor Sam, for two reasons. First of all, you can't blame him, it was simply good promotion for his campaign, because he IS a double donged dildo.

(Love the alliteration. You could even say he's a dumber than dogshit dorkass double donged dildo.)

And secondly, wherein does the real problem lie? He not only got elected, he got RE-elected. As long as there are supporters for his ilk along with the Osteen/Craig contingency, can you blame an unprincipled opportunistic scumbag for turning over a not-so-honest buck by running the cons they do?

He elaborated on that very idea in his column today, linked below.

Thanks Bertold. I like the comment about the governor of a state selling butt plugs named Brownback.

OK. Here's what I don't get about the Ohh Soo Moral Brownback. Because of his fiscal policies, Kansas is now broke. So broke, in fact, that in 2014, they had to engage in the sale of sex toys. Since the auction is now over, I couldn't locate the site where the State of Kansas was auctioning off a double donged dildo. But I swear I saw it (and laughed my ass off till there were tears in my eyes).

Try as I might, I can't seem to find which book of the buybull sanctions battery powered "jack packs" while prohibiting normal love between two adult humans. Can someone help me out here?
