Republican Sen. Peter Micciche today pre-filed a bill which would allow businesses to refuse service to any married or engaged same-sex couple.
Senator Peter Micciche (R-Soldotna) and Rep. Dave Talerico (R-Healy) have introduced bills in their respective chambers — SB 120 and HB 236 — which provide for individuals the right to deny marriage applicants “services, accommodations, facilities, goods, or privileges for a purpose related to the solemnization, formation, or celebration of a marriage.”
The sanctioning of refusal of services for a same-sex wedding could serve to undermine Anchorage’s newly passed anti-discrimination law, passed in September, which protects residents of Alaska’s largest city against “discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.” It was the first law of its kind in the state.
Same-sex marriages were prohibited in Alaska via a 1998 ballot initiative. Last year, as we all know the U.S. Supreme Court overturned that prohibition in Obergefell v Hodges.
If moved forward and passed under the auspices of these Bills, the same opt-out clause could possibly also be applied in cases of race, age, disability, or national origin in the future
Appearing on Sean Hannity’s show on FOX NEWS where Palin is a paid contributor, Palin laid out the defense of her daughter Willow calling a boy on Facebook a “faggot”.
Willow was a victim of bullying!
I mean, look at the other day. Willow, finally, my 16 year old, she had had it up to here with somebody saying very, very hateful things about the family and saying mean things about her little brother Trig, and Willow finally responded and she used a bad word (faggot) when she responded in defense of her family. And her response became national news, even hard news copy it turned into, so that’s ridiculous and I had to explain to her, ‘Willow, there is no justice here but you have to just zip your lip and let’s move forward.’
Lets get one thing staright. Palin is lying and spinning off the bat. there was no mention in the Facebook exchange about anyone in the family, not trey and not trig. The exchange between Willow and a friend a kid called “Tre” was actually about how the television show Sarah Palin’s Alaska sucks.
The 16-year-old slammed a former classmate who said that her mother’s new TV show Sarah Palin’s Alaska is “failing so hard right now”, reports TMZ.
“Haha your so gay. I have no idea who you are, But what I’ve seen pictures of, your disgusting … My sister had a kid and is still hot (sic),” she wrote in response.
“Tre stfu. Your such a faggot.”
Older sister Bristol also joined in, adding: “You’re running your mouth just to talk s**t.”
So we have igloo trash Palin explaining away her bitch of a daughter’s behavior and her rotten parenting skills because of course missing from her parental lesson is that here is no excuse for calling people homophobic slurs. But this is a woman who campaigned on the idea that gay Americans are less than, well wolves was to be expected.
I can’t wait until Todd Palin is caught at a Rest Stop in Alaska getting blown by an Ice Road Trucker. [source]
Alaska Tea Party Republican Joe Miller keeps pretty on the subject of LGBT rights though in a letter to voters he defended a pastor who claimed that “homosexuality is a sin, and therefore immoral.” No it comes to light that Miller paid for consulting services to an etreme anti-gay activist named Terry Moffitt, who runs a project called Hope for Homosexuals
The group’s guiding principles, according to its website, include opposition to all fornication and homosexuality. It denounces “any efforts to convince society that homosexual behavior or ‘being gay’ is somehow normal or natural.” The organization explains its antipathy to homosexuality “is the result of a healthy fear of God’s judgment that will otherwise be wrought on individuals who reject God’s laws and our our nation for turning a blind eye.” That puts the Family Policy Network in the extreme camp of anti-gay activists–those who believe that God could punish the United States collectively, if Americans tolerate homosexuality.
Moffitt has a long history of excoriating conservatives and Republicans who have any contact with gay people or organizations. He attacked Rush Limbaugh for hiring Elton John to perform at his wedding, and slammed Virginia Republican George Allen for deigning to meet with gay activists. So one can draw the conclusions that cro-magnon Miller is extremely anti-gay if Moffitt works with him.
A A Tea Party Republicanr hanging around with radical anti-gay evangelicals? I know you all are SHOCKED! This is just proof that conservative religions are the curse of humanity. And the teabaggers and repubs are really the same thing.
The only question left to answer is who will be oouted first. Will Moffit expose Miller or vice versa? Or just how long it will be before there’s be pictures of Levi Johnson lifting Joe Miller’s luggage at an Alaskan airport.
While Sarah Palin and her family and entorage of veracious locast were making greedy looking asses out of themselves while cleaning out the FREE Gift Bag tents in Hollywood at upcoming Oscar events. Kathy Griffin invaded Alaska (Not through Russia, but that would have been funny) and skewered Palins ass royally in her own backyard of Anchorage on Friday Night.
La’ Diva Griffin was escorted on stage by Levi Johnston, and said she spent a day ice fishing with Johnston in Wasilla, and was surprised when 19-year-old Levi’s friend brought along a camera – but only to photograph the fish they caught.
While in Wasilla, Griffin said she also went to Palin’s home. There she left a note, inviting Palin to Friday’s performance. She asked the crowd to look around and see if anyone was doing a pageant wave.
Kathy also welcomed news that Palin is trying to shop a reality show or docudrama about Alaska. She called that a “gift from God.”
