This is the world of equality. It’s horribly small.

It didn’t end in Arizona — a bill that would legalize anti-LGBT discrimination on the grounds of “religious freedom” is working its way up the ranks in Mississippi.
The Mississippi Religious Freedom Restoration Act was approved by a House committee this week and will now move to the full House. The state Senate has already passed a similar bill, making this all the more dangerous.
A House subcommittee earlier changed the language in the bill in an attempt to make it more palatable to civil rights activists and less like the legislation vetoed last week in Arizona, but LGBT and liberal groups say the bill is still deeply flawed.
“While that new language would preserve the rights of businesses to enact non-discrimination policies, it would not prevent them from also enacting discriminatory policies where a ‘sincerely held religious belief’ was present,” reports the online publication Deep South Progressive.
I’m not sure what we have to do to ensure that legislation like this never comes close to passing in any state — Arizona was already a damn close call. Keep an eye on this one, and on similar bills that are popping up all over the country.
Rand Paul, Asshole of the Day for March 5, 2014
In a few short months gay marriage bans are disappearing in this country due to federal judges, but not without a lot of whining and sore losers.
Of course it started with the Supreme Court invalidating the Defense Of Marriage Act, with Scalia claiming the Supreme Court couldn’t overturn laws Congress passed only 24 hours after he led the charge overturning the Voting Rights Act.
Then judges in Utah and other states overturned state bans against gay marriage, with Trestin Meacham going on a hunger strike to protest that his state must persecute gays in accordance with his religion.
And now a federal judge has overturned Kentucky’s law refusing to recognize gay marriages legally performed in other states. On top of that Kentucky’s Attorney General has refused to defend the law, saying in part that “I got to a point where I realized that if I took it any further I’d be defending discrimination, and that I couldn’t do.”
So then here comes Rand Paul, Senator from Kentucky to try to stop the march of history, claiming that states have a right to define marriage and federal courts have no legitimate basis for interfering:
"I believe in the historic and religious definition of marriage. I also believe this power belongs to the states and the people, not the federal government. It is illegitimate for the federal courts to intrude here," he told Reason when asked about a federal judge’s February ruling that Kentucky must recognize gay marriages performed in other states.
But Rand Paul knows that the federal government does overrule the states on this, especially the courts when invoking Supreme Court precedent.
Rand Paul knows that 50 years ago the Supreme Court overruled states who banned interracial marriage.
So for him to say that states alone have the right to define marriage is to say that states interracial marriage bans should still be allowed if the people in those states want them. It’s no different. But for acting like it is, Rand Paul is the Asshole of the Day.
It’s not surprising either, since in the past Rand Paul has said that business owners should be allowed to refuse to serve blacks if they want to. He doesn’t think they should, but he thinks they should be allowed to. Yeah.
It is Rand Paul's fourth time being named Asshole of the Day. Previous win were for
- attacking reporters who proved he was plagiarizing on multiple occasions
- saying no one has done more for minorities than he has
- saying Obama is working with anti-American globalists plotting against the Constitution
