WA State Homophobes: We need to keep our white-hoods on!

In the latest twist in the Evangelical Christian attempt to force their narrow minded version of Biblical Law on the rest of us, the group pushing R-71, the so-called "Protect Washington Families" act, which is an effort to overturn the WA congressional decision to extend full rights under the law to domestic partners (notice NO MENTION of Marriage to be seen), the Religious bigots running this side show have gone to court to get a special exemption to the WA state law that requires names on a state referendum to be public.
The complaint challenges the Constitutionality of the public disclosure law on the ground that it chills free speech protected under the First Amendment, particularly when it is reasonably probable that those exercising their First Amendment rights will be subjected to threats and harassment.
You know, if there was any irony in these bigots lives, how much more then complaining that they need to be protected from Threats and Harassments.
All these Bible-thumping lunatics spend seem their time on IS threatening and harassing and trying to deprive US citizens of their rights.
Keep in mind, the WA state bill SAID NOTHING about Marriage, it was simply extending equal rights under law to all WA state citizens.
But, with the Christian Right, it's clear, as much as they wail about Marriage, this is an effort to group a class of US citizens into second class status under law.
There is no slippery slope here, these people want to drive every gay American back in the closet, to repeal any law that protects job and legal discrimination based on sexual orientation. That is their true agenda.
This is not about Marriage, this is about Hate.
And, the court challenge to WA state Full Transparency Act is to allow these Religious fanatics to extend anonymity to anyone taking up this bigoted Religious Crusade with them.
