We support the clear will of the people of Montana expressed by legislation to keep homosexual acts illegal.
What’s next? Blasphemy laws? Dynamiting statues of Buddha? Mandatory burqas for women?
If you’re a Montanan and you’re still a Republican… Why?
Update: The AP article argues that Montana Republicans are lazy, not evil:
Montana GOP executive director Bowen Greenwood said that has been the position of the party since the state Supreme Court struck down state laws criminalizing homosexuality in 1997 in the case of Gryczan v. Montana.
Nobody has ever taken the initiative to change it and so it’s remained in the party platform, Greenwood said. The matter has never even come up for discussion, he said.
In other words, “Sorry, 5% of Montana! We couldn’t be arsed to take out the part of our policy that says you’re vile scum. Don’t worry about it.”
