16 States Currently Pushing "Don't Say Gay" Laws

16 States Currently Pushing “Don’t Say Gay” Laws

Conservative lawmakers in 16 mostly red states across America are considering new legislation that would bar teachers from “introducing concepts of sexual orientation or gender identity to young students”, imitating a new Florida law that opponents have dubbed the “Don’t Say Gay” Law.

Falling back on the Ron DeSantis’ and Anita Bryant’s “Save The Children Campaign” playbook of “gay panic” the following states all have anti-LGBT legislation in the works.: Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Alabama, Arizona, Iowa, New Jersey, Kansas, Missouri, Kentucky, South Carolina, Illinois, Rhode Island, Ohio, and South Dakota.

“Battles over sex education in schools have been a constant front in the culture wars that have raged between liberals and conservatives for decades” aid Aaron Ridings, chief of staff and deputy executive director for public policy and research at GLSEN. ““There’s a chilling effect from all of these bills on people who are LGBT”

South Carolina Republicans File Bill To Classify Same-Sex Marriage As “Parody Marriage”

According to the South Carolina Statehouse website, a bill titled the “Marriage and Constitution Restoration Act,” was introduced in the House, read for the first time and referred to Committee on Judiciary on February 15, 2018. “‘Parody marriage’ means any form of marriage that does not involve one man and one woman,” read the bill. “‘Marriage’ means a union of one man and one woman.”

From the bill:

Whereas, all forms of parody marriage and all self-asserted sex-based identity narratives and sexual orientations that fail to check out the human design are part of the religion of Secular Humanism; and

Whereas, the State of South Carolina’s decision to respect, endorse, and recognize parody marriages and sexual orientation policies has excessively entangled the government with the religion of Secular Humanism, failed to accomplish its intended purpose, and created an indefensible legal weapon against nonobservers; and

Whereas, in the wake of Obergefell v. Hodges, 135 S. Ct. 2584 (2015), there has not been a land rush on gay marriage, but there has been a land rush on the persecution of nonobservers by Secular Humanists and an effort by Secular Humanists to infiltrate and indoctrinate minors in public schools to their religious world view which is questionably moral, plausible, obscene, and is not secular; and

Whereas, it is unsettled whether or not sexual orientation is immutable or genetic and is therefore a matter of faith; and Whereas, parody marriages have never been a part of American tradition and heritage; and

Whereas, parody marriage policies and sexual orientation statutes are nonsecular and policies that respect, endorse, and recognize a marriage between a man and a woman are secular, accomplishing its intended objective.

This coming from a state that the age of consent is 16 and you can marry your first cousin.

Oh, and by the way South Carolina: your BBQ sucks.

S.C. Shooter Dylann Roof Mentions FRC’s Tony Perkins Affilated White Supremacist Group In Hate Manifesto

CCC Tony Perkins

 

For years I have been posting about Family Research Council President Tony Perkins and his ties to various White Supremacist  Organizations.  Back in 2001 then Louisiana state Rep.  Perkins addressed and received an award from the Council Of Conservative Citizens, an SPLC certified racist hate group with active chapters in more than a dozen states including South Carolina.

Now this weekend we learn that another follower of the CCC is Charleston mass murderer Dylann Roof.

The Inquisitr quotes from Roof’s just-discovered manifesto:

“But more importantly this prompted me to type in the words ‘black on White crime’ into Google, and I have never been the same since that day. The first website I came to was the Council of Conservative Citizens. There were pages upon pages of these brutal black on White murders. I was in disbelief. At this moment I realized that something was very wrong. How could the news be blowing up the Trayvon Martin case while hundreds of these black on White murders got ignored?”

Per its website, the CCC opposes “race mixing” and considers black people “a retrograde species of humanity.”

According to the SPLC, the CCC calls LGBT Americans “perverted sodomites.” and  notes that the membership rolls of the Council Of Conservative Citizens “overlap greatly” with those of the League Of The South,

Perkins’ speech to the CCC (formerly the White Citizens Council) came only five years after he was fined by the Federal Elections Commission for lying about an $82k payment to Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke.

The Council Of Conservative Citizens has either crashed or been taking offline at the time of this posting but its Headlines section is still available and very disturbing.

OUTRAGEOUS! – Mike Huckabee: If Only Somebody In That South Carolina Church Had Been Carrying A Gun – Video

huckabee

 

Fox News:

President Obama had a moment to bring healing to the nation, but he chose to play politics instead, using the terrible massacre in Charleston to call for a crackdown on guns. Everything with this administration is about politics. Everything. Gov. Mike Huckabee told me he was disappointed with President Obama’s “grandstanding.” “All the proposals this president has put forward on gun control would not have stopped this shooting,” he said. According to the GOP presidential candidate, one thing might have stopped the tragedy: A pistol-packing church-goer. “The one thing that would have at least ameliorated the horrible situation in Charleston would have been if somebody in that prayer meeting had a conceal carry or (if) there had been an off duty policeman somebody with the legal authority to carry a firearm and could have stopped the shooter,” Huckabee said.

Its seriously well past time to start bitch-slapping some  people.

 

South Carolina’s Attorney General Alan Wilson Promises To Uphold The State’s Unconstitutional Ban on Gay Marriage

Republican DouchebagsSouth Carolina’s (Republican) Attorney General Alan Wilson has pledged to keep fighting to uphold the state’s constitutional ban on gay marriage – despite the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals pro-equality ruling taking effect earlier today.

Associated Press reports:

Wilson issued a statement Monday hours after the U.S. Supreme Court decided not to hear an appeal of a ruling allowing same-sex marriage by a federal appeals court with jurisdiction over South Carolina.

Wilson says no ruling has been made in a lawsuit by a same-sex couple legally married in Washington, D.C., who live in South Carolina. They are asking to overturn the state’s gay marriage ban. Wilson says he will keep fighting until there is a ruling in that case.

Wilson is reportedly good friends with Florida AG Pam Bondi. He attened her ‘third union’ in the Cayman Islands.

Todd Kincannon

Todd Kincannon who in the past has served as both General Counsel and Executive Director of the South Carolina Republican Party and now through his law firm in Columbia, South Carolina represents many GOP and Tea Part campaigns and Tea Party groups took to Twitter this week to express his disgust for transgender people, or “trannies” as he likes to calls them. After transgender activist Kat Haché replied to one of Kincannon’s tweets on an entirely different topic.

The unhinged Kincannon  says he does this to widen the “Overton window,” which refers to a of political ideas that the public will accept. denying transgender people equal recognition under the law more easily as a other then the less extreme notions like Kincannon’s of putting transsexuals in “concentration camps”

Kincannon, in the past has done everything from mocking victims of Hurricane Katrina to laughing about the death of Trayvon Martin,

Lawsuit Filed Against South Carolina School District After Teacher Harasses Gay Teen

Most evil

A lawsuit has been brought against the Charleston County School District after  West Ashley High School math teacher bullied and harassed a gay student in front of his classmates, resulting in the student’s attempted suicide.

The teacher repeatedly called the student “gay”, “gay boy”, and other names while the student was in front of his peers, and encouraged the victim’s classmates to join in on the name-calling and told the victim’s classmates that the student was in a homosexual relationship with another male classmate, and that they were “boyfriend and girlfriend”.

The lawsuit claims the school district was grossly negligent in failing to properly supervise the teacher, and failing to take steps which would have prevented, discovered, and stopped the teacher’s behavior.

The victim’s family is suing the school district for past, present and future damages associated with pain and suffering, mental anguish, the alteration of lifestyle, and past and future medical bills.

Not surprisingly though according to CCSD spokesperson Jason Sakran, the teacher is still employed by the school district.

In my opinion horsewhipping is too good for the adult teacher that did this to this poor teenager.

 

Mark Sanford Wins Back House Seat, South Carolina Condones Adultery, Opposes Gay Rights

Mark Sanford polident

Looks like the good ole’ boy Republican network of South Carolina have done it again as serial adulterer Mark Sanford will be dusting off his hiking boots and hitting the trail back to Washington, DC and Congress.

Disgraced ex-South Carolina governor Mark Sanford won his bid for redemption on Tuesday night, defeating Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch for his old seat in Congress. Sanford, a Republican who admitted an extramarital affair in 2009, was ready to quit politics for good if he was not victorious in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional District. He will replace Republican Tim Scott, who was appointed to the Senate.

The former governor — once a rising GOP star considered presidential material — was an early favorite in the Republican district, which Mitt Romney carried by 18 percentage points in the 2012 election. But the revelation that Sanford’s ex-wife, Jenny, accused the candidate of trespassing at her home caused the National Republican Congressional Committee to withdraw its support in mid-April and gave Colbert Busch an opening.

ONLY in the GOP could someone be considered a “rising star” and “presidential material” whos a
proven liar.  adulterer.  and used public money to fund his sexcapades abroad.

As for the South Carolinians who voted for Polident Sanford, “Stupid is as stupid does” certainly seems to fit in this instance.

Run Mark Run!

 

Rick Santorum and Family Research Council Protested and Glittered in South Carolina

Looks like ole frothy’s protest problems didn’t stop after he left (and lost) in New Hampshire.

According to The Advocate, Santorum was once again confronted with angry LGBT protesters in South Carolina Thursday at his rally in Mount Pleasant with Family Research Council  hate group president and white supremacist Tony Perkins.

About 20 demonstrators tossed glitter into the air and began shouting at Santorum that he had “spilled queer blood.”  as police led them to a spot farther from the stage, they objected by chanting, “Put the queers in the back!”

Kneena Raheja, the lone trans activist at the protest told Buzzfeed, “I think people like Rick Santorum are actively violent towards the queer population. I’m just here to let him know that the longer he silences us, the longer he does not acknowledge that we, the trans population, exist, the harder we will bash back.” She added that the rest of the Republican presidential aspirants are just as bad as Santorum: “They’re all rich old white men that don’t know my experience.”

THANK YOU South Carolina protesters.  FINALLY our community is standing up and speaking out once again.  Protests should be happening at EVERY GOP and gay hate group public event.  We cannot stay silent any longer and write checks thinking that our gay org’s will take care of  everything because they won’t and they can’t.  We have to get out there, stand up, and fight back!

Video – During House Judiciary Committee GOP Trey Gowdy (SC) Likens Gay Marriage To Incest And Polygamy AGAIN

Same shit different day from the GOP Homophones but whats really horrible about this is that Attorney General Eric Holder should have smacked down this entire line of questioning from the onset. But Holder who loves to defend DOMA as much didn’t.

Incest and polygamy are behaviors (choices). They are NOT a sexual orientation. Considering that both are predominately heterosexual endeavors makes it even more galling that Mr. Holder allowed the congressman to continue with his inane comparisons.
