I keep arguing with various people that their religious beliefs are used as weapons against all of us, whether we believe in their religion or not. Some guy has even called me an anti-religious bigot for defending my rights to keep their religious views out of my life.
I see that in Gainesville Florida some group named Citizens for Good Public Policy have gathered enough signatures to repeal the civil rights that gays and lesbians have had in Gainesville for the past decade. This means that gays and lesbians can be tossed out of housing for being gay or fired for being gay. Yes, that is correct. The rest of Florida doesn’t even have these basic protections. So now it goes for a vote.
So this might be the future of the glbt community. A bunch of so-called religious people trying to force their religious doctrine on the rest of the population. This same guy who called me an anti-religious bigot also accused me of trying to silence the so-called religious voices. What a joke. I will do my best to make sure that these anti-gay voices and actions are spread so that the rest of the population recognize the religious nazis among us. If you ask me, the entire basis of our democracy is in trouble when the tyranny of the majority becomes commonplace. This is exactly why we need protection at the federal level. I can’t see that happening any time soon, but then again, I never thought in my lifetime that I would be married to Doug.
