Does this look even remotely like YOUR family?
Today, Pennsylvania legislators unveiled their plan to destroy the families of 20,000 gay and 250,000 heterosexual families. The heterosexual families, unmarried per the 2000 Census, are the innocent victims in the homo-haters all out war on Pennsylvania's gay families.
Rep Scott W. Boyd, R-Lancaster County and Daryl Metcalfe, R-Butler County are among the prime sponsors of this proposal.
Butler County. Here in Western Pennsylvania. Right up the road. A place where any unmarried heterosexual couple faces the loss of some pretty basic rights thanks to Scotty and Daryl's hatred of gays.
This could mean that women cannot seek a protection from abuse order from their boyfriends if they are not married. See the HRC 2005 report on the impact of similar amendments in other states.
Gay marriage is illegal in Pennsylvania. This is a non-issue. It is simply an attempt to rally the faithful around kicking the homos versus taking care of actual legislative business.
Remember 250,000 heterosexual families will be caught up in this net.
