    Evil, the relentless pursuit of, these people are like Lyme disease creating ticks icon_twisted.gif

    James Inhofe (R-OK) offered an amendment to the Congressional budget that could force the federal government to maintain contracts with organizations that do not treat their gay employees equally.

    The amendment, as read into the Congressional record, dictates that “Federal agencies do not discriminate against an individual, business, or organization with sincerely held religious beliefs against abortion [or] that marriage is the union of one man and one woman.”

    This seems to be an attempt to undermine the executive order President Obama signed last year requiring all federal contractors to adhere to LGBT nondiscrimination protections. An organization could employ gay workers and even provide benefits to their same-sex spouses but openly condemn their marriages, creating the kind of chilly work environment that could constitute de facto discrimination, and the federal government would be required to continue funding that organization with taxpayer money.

    I'm sure right-wingers here will rush to Inhofe's defense, possibly waving snowballs.

    Could it possibly be clearer which party is the enemy?

    Sen. Inhofe, huh? How fortunate a position for a bigot by any name to find himself at the senate. They should name the bill Inhofe's Luck or Inhole Fuck, whichever comes to mind first. Senator Inhole should go fuck himself. He already has the name for it.

    Another Republican bigot doing his part in the GOP war against gay people.
