I’ve been wondering for some time if my party had been hijacked by small-minded holier-than-thou individuals and today I have proof. The Montana republican-led house judiciary committee tabled a bill previously passed by the senate to remove language from a law making homosexuality a felony. I was disgusted that 9 republicans in the senate voted against it but was impressed that it did eventually pass the senate. Not so in the house.
This bill, sponsored by Sen. Tom Facey should have been a no-brainer. The Montana Supreme Court as well as the United States Supreme Court has already ruled the law unconstitutional, but this is of no consequence to Montana GOP representatives. I’m a conservative, but I utilize something much of the party has forgotten about- common sense. We are alienating a segment of our population simply because they don’t have sex the same way as the legislators do (or the way they will admit to anyway). If you find homosexuality immoral, don’t be one. If you find medical cannabis immoral, don’t use it. I find hatred and bigotry immoral, but that is just me…..
There are so many issues in which both parties should be able to find common ground…. but it isn’t happening. This website began as a conservative blog poking fun at socialism and other dangerous political agendas- but has been forced to focus on our own party since the beginning of the session. That is truly sad. Where does a fiscally conservative, socially libertarian chick go?
