Greater Freedom and Civil Rights Come to Oklahoma!

By Doggone

Today another court overturned another red state ban on same sex marriage.
This time it was Oklahoma, joining the other states in that region of the country, New Mexico and Utah.
Foolishly, in all of the states with a prior gay marriage ban, there are fund raising attempts to fight this lost battle against civil rights and marriage equality.
Sadly, in the same week we have new levels of freedom in the U.S., thanks to these same bigots, the President of Uganda, at the instigation of American fundies and virulent evangelicals, signed legislation that would allow that country to execute people for being gay.
Shame on this country for exporting our backward bigotry.  But HOORAY for the federal government over-ruling state level discrimination.
