^snip^


The Republicans put in a clause, introduced in secret, which is a cop out for anyone who can provide a religious or moral reason for their action.

Apparently to not grant this get-out clause is to act, as Gary Glenn, president of the American Family Association of Michigan, puts it, as a Trojan horse for the homosexual agenda.

The Michigan bills are known as Matts Safe School Law and are named for Matt Epling, an East Lansing gay teenager who committed suicide after being bullied.

Michigan Republicans only agreed to consider an anti-bullying measure for one of the only three US states without them that did not require school districts to report bullying incidents, did not include any provisions for enforcement or teacher training, and did not hold administrators accountable if they fail to act. They wanted no mention of any groups at high risk of bullying, in particular gay students.




Sticking to the 4 paragraph rule... I suggest you go read the rest.



Un.... F#@KING.... Believable.

2. Gerald Ford would shake his head
Edited on Sun Nov-06-11 01:23 AM by alp227
Once upon a time, notable Republicans from MI included Gerald Ford (represented the Lower Peninsula from 1949-1973 and was a Minority Leader and the only non-elected president EVER) and George Romney (Mitt's father who served as governor from 1963-1969). Now you've got that union-busting xillionaire pig Rick Snyder and a bunch of psychopaths who've turned the legislature into a state prison by voting for a bullying apologist bill.

3. This has nothing to do with bullying. This is meant to sanction beating up gay youth.
I've had to here with Michigan and its legislature and even my republican neighborhood feels the same.

So listen up fuckheads, even your base thinks you're bad for the state.

4. What if some Muslims (you know.. the scary scary Muslims) bullied some Christians


because their religion tells them they should.


Wouldn't this law give them the ability to do exactly that without retribution?
