meninlove said I think it bad enough that he's a senator, and I notice that no one conservative is commenting on what he's said about gays being fired for being gay, other than SB, who shot himself in the foot.
Portman's argument, if transposed to other areas, would go like this:
"Innocent people should not be shot dead by gunmen. That proves I'm against murder. But if the innocent are killed, the murderers should not be prosecuted, because that would make them uncomfortable, and burden the legal system."
It's no wonder conservatives won't touch what Portman is saying, because it's insane. But when it comes to the bill to protect gays from losing their jobs, guess which way they're gonna vote? So they're on the same side of the issue as Portman, even if they're staying low profile about it for now.
