    And once again the bigots win.

    RALEIGH — A controversial bullying bill that would have provided protection for public school students based on their sexual orientation was skipped over Thursday and will not be considered during the 2008 session, which likely ends today.

    The bill had drawn vocal opposition from Christian groups who opposed it as a law promoting homosexuality.

    So protecting kids from being beaten because they are gay is the same thing as promoting being gay? That public school system is doing a dandy job teaching thinking skills!!

    P.S. Not even going to touch the idiocy of the idea of “promoting” homosexuality . . .

    I’m already very angry at the neighbor’s friend who thinks that women who get sexually assaulted, in fact, enjoy it. I swear to anything you name she actually said that.

    This is not helping my blood pressure this morning.

    Is your neighbor’s friend related to John McCain?

    Just out of curiosity, is it ok for kids to get beaten if they’re not in any of your stupid protected classes?

    No, it is just as bad to beat smart people as it is to beat stupid people.

    I wish. Then at least I could take comfort in knowing that kind of stupidity is just hereditary and not a vast societal issue.

    I wonder if “the Christian groups” opposing this bill, represent mainly families with kids in public school in the first place, in other words do they have skin in the game? Do you know, Daryl?

    I don’t know but I’d bet against it. Hating on teh gays seems to be compulsory for certain flavors of “Christians.” These same groups, I’d bet, opposed a proposed law prohibiting discrimination in housing. They’re not all landlords, and they don’t all have kids in school.

    Probably no fans of the immigrants and their foreign languages and funny clothes then either?
