Bigots and hypocrites do NOT represent ME!

I've posted several times about my frustration and concerns regarding how the religious right feels the need to mandate our morals and protect us from the evil of same-sex marriage. I've written to the legislators several times and it was so disappointing and frightening to see how many still just don't get it. Kudo's to Representative Chuck Coiner (R) for representing ALL Idahoans and resisting the call of his party to "fall in step" with the rest of them!

I am stunned that so many in our legislature cannot see that this issue is more based upon homophobia and NOT on family values...

I am horrified that our legislature has such a backwards sense of priorities for Idaho citizens...

I especially find it offensive that these so-called "public servants" now claim the higher ground because they NOW want to turn this decision over to the citizens of Idaho... like all of a sudden they CARE what we want? Where were they when we wanted TERM LIMITS?

Even Lynne Cheney seems to have somewhat of a grasp of how love can be expressed outside of man-woman relationships... and I'm not just talking about her daughter!

This blatant expression of bigotry is offensive and we must acknowledge the bigots who claim to represent Idaho... is this REALLY what we want Idaho to be about? Bigotry, discrimination, and homophobia? Thank you, Eva, for directing us to the list of legislators who want to align our state with the religious right who try to dictate how we live our lives...

As Peter Hansen states on his website, "Life in Bush Country":
"Other than telling us how to live, think, marry, pray, vote, invest, educate our children and, now, die, I think the Republicans have done a fine job of getting government out of our personal lives."
