I'm as American as the day is long, and I'd just like to go on record as saying this is fucked up, disgusting and any Michinganeer not enraged by this blatant breach of basic human rights should be ashamed of themselves. Gays are entitled to be gay every bit as much as you are entitled to be straight, get the fuck over yourselves you self-riteous pieces of shit. (People who wanted this bill, not NSers obviously)
To NSers from the rest of the world, DO NOT accept this as a widely held stance in the US. Unfortunately there are a few crazies that other crazies elected that sneak stupid religious shit in whenever they get a chance and it makes us all look like inbred assholes. Trust me, this is not even remotely ok and won't last long now that public outrage is building.
in the interest of fair play there should be a law allowing gays to bully christians.
Do unto others, right?
K so the title of this thread is misleading, you're right. Your post that states "okay so she's against the constitution" is equally misleading.
Essentially the problem with this law is that it requires that all schools maintain a specific policy which is required to allow bullying so long as it is expressed on religious grounds. Given that license to express religious views is constitutionalized, that was wholly unnecessary, and in effect all it does is provide a blueprint for abuse.
FYI, you also can't pass a law in Michigan that says "It's not okay to burn a cross on a black dude's lawn", so there's that.
The underlying issue is that your constitution sucks.
Christ, not even close. The thing is awful.
Arguably the U.K.'s implied constitution is the best one out there, but I will say this; Canada's constitution is kind of fucked, largely because it's basically two distinct constitutions separated by roughly 100 years mashed together, but it's still a hell of a lot better than the US's.
