“This is about basic questions of fairness and equity under the law,” said the Governor. “We must continue to strive to make Oregon a state of economic and social opportunity for all of our citizens, regardless of race, gender, religion, age or sexual orientation.”
Look at the first sentence. I believe I made the same point in much the same wording in the Jersey Girls thread (at least before it evolved into a “fundy trolls humiliate themselves” thread). All Americans deserve to be treated as equals, regardless of the bronze age religious beliefs of a small number of rapidly more marginalized fringe dwellers.
I stand by my statement, and the Governor’s. In fact, because it’s so late (or early now, I guess) and I’m feeling rather generous, he doesn’t even have to give me credit. 🙂
I ❤ Governor Kulongoski.
