Minnesota is Doing Important Things

Gays and Lesbians to lose state protections

You have to love these people. How dare you persecute me by not letting me persecute others!

Supporters of the bill say that they don't want people to be persecuted or harassed but that the law is doing just that to Christian conservatives and others who consider homosexuality a violation of God's law.

As vaara notes, the bill also includes this:

Dibble said he found it particularly offensive that the bill would remove sexual orientation as a classification in the human-rights law's definition of Holocaust survivors and victims.

I suppose they're not claiming that homosexuals were not put into the gas chambers, just that, well, maybe they kinda deserved it.

Minnesotans can take action here.
