dlray, what in God's green earth does Iran's nuclear capabilities have to do with Mssrs Kelsey & Dunn attempting to legalize discrimination here in Tennessee? There are a LOT of horrible things going on in the world today, and quite a few of them have to do with GLBT issues. Uganda is poised to criminalize homosexuality itself. Russia is arresting people for showing any support of homosexuality in public. A version of this same "Turn the Gays Away" bill in Kansas would allow even a denial of government services to tax-paying GLBT persons. Is this bill in Tennessee the worst of the bunch? No, not by a long shot. Does that mean we should just ignore it? HELL NO!
It's cute that you want to set up a straw man in President Obama's image, but that doesn't have anything to do with the issue at hand. This bill is BAD, PERIOD. If you want to argue that point, go right ahead...just quit trying to rabble-rouse.
Since we don't have civil unions, domestic partnerships, or same-sex marriages in TN (from a legal standpoint anyway), how exactly can someone request goods or services in support of one?
