watch as Democrat Senator, Gretchen Whitmer speaks out AGAINST the bill being passed onkneesforjesus.blogspot.com
Here's the link to the legislation if anybody is still looking for it.
Thanks Grux. Section 8 is the part that is so offensive. Other than the passage of the law in the first place.
I have posted and reposted this to my facebook page, and will continue to do so. It absolutely sickens me that such a blatant law allowing discrimination toward gays and others who aren't Christian or who are "different" was even proposed! This senator is obviously very shaken by this and I am proud of her strong words against it. We have got to stop religion from ruining our country once and for all!
"But in a change before Wednesday's vote, Republican lawmakers added a clause ensuring that the bill "does not prohibit a statement of a sincerely held belief or moral conviction" of a student or school worker."
Laws like this come dangerously close to the First Amendment. Talking is not bullying unless you are making a direct threat yourself.
That's a lot different than your claim.
Just limiting speech that may offend someone isn't Constitutional and it shouldn't be. Christians tell me I'm going to Hell all the time. Personally I find that funny. If you don't, then you need to examine why.
I don't have a problem with someone saying something they really believe like that. They ought to be able to . That's what freedom is.
i feel like crying. this is so sick. as a dane, it shouldnt surprise me that american politics can be so far out, but republicans can surprise all the time with their true evil.
So what else is new? God has ALWAYS been a bully. Have you read the Old Testament, lately?
@ Godless Conservative - A child at school has limited rights. As adults we have the right to use swear words, racial slurs, sexual language, etc.. where a child in school would not. If a child wishes to pray, read his bible, etc during breaks he is free to do so, but it's ridiculous to allow his religious rights to extend into bullying. As the old saying goes "Your right to swing your arms ends just before my nose"
