Obama brings out the big guns, Rick Perry and Greg Abbott dissemble, and New York pulls a Texas GOP counter-punch, as your AggreGAYtor works, bitch.
President Obama is about to ban anti-LGBT discrimination by federal contractors.
The New York State Assembly has passed a ban on quack “ex-gay” therapy.
Alabama’s unconstitutional criminalization of sodomy just bit the dust in that state (Texas’s ban was overturned a decade ago, but remains on the books).
Greg Abbott might not be too forthcoming on his stance regarding ex-gay quacks, but he doesn’t mind using their plane.
Rick Perry apparently doesn’t know that “the psychologists and the doctors” have already come out against harmful reparative therapy.
Focus on the Family returns to their old gay-hatin’ hijinks.
