Stanley's Ideologically Driven Ignorance

The right wing wants to take away your family's rights. It is unbelievable how these people are so ideologically driven by prejudice and ignorance. Fight back. This is from the Tennessee Equality Project:
Tennessee Equality Project's fifth annual Advancing Equality Day on the Hill in Nashville is nearly upon us. On Tuesday, February 17 citizens from across the state will converge on Legislative Plaza and encounter some changes.

We face renewed attacks on LGBT rights in the Legislature this year. Sen. Paul Stanley (R-Cordova) re-filed an adoption ban bill on Jan. 29 that "prohibits any individual who is cohabitating in a sexual relationship outside of a marriage that is valid under the constitution and laws of this state from adopting a minor." Please join us on the Hill to tell Sen. Stanley and other lawmakers that this bill hurts Tennessee children and families.

I don't know what is up with Paul Stanley. You'd think someone with this much makeup would be more open-minded.

Oops. Silly me. Wrong Paul Stanley.


  1. Hey! Thanks for getting me hot under the collar on a Thursday afternoon, John!

    This kind of stuff bugs the heck out of me.

    Why don't they take this to its (il)logical extreme by saying that since marriage is [according to their interpretation of scripture] exclusively between a man and a woman for the purpose of procreating that any couples who are unable to have children be barred from adopting?

    Take it all the way or get the hell out of the way, I say!


  2. Hopefully the sane will realize how expensive prejudice is in a time in which we need to pull together.

  3. What jerk that guy is. And the legislator dude sucks as well.
