The law just passed in Kansas and the law Ted Cruz and his cronies are trying to pass in the US Senate terrify me because they’re akin to the Jim Crow laws of times past. I want you to think about this very seriously. These law say it is okay to deny serving me food, allowing me to purchase an item from a store, or be in certain locations simply because I’m not heterosexual. If I want to do those things, I can go to a store that serves ‘my kind’. Separate but equal. Does that sound familiar at all to you? A fight is coming, and it’s going to be long and hard. When you pick sides, think about it on a personal level. If you’re my friend, keep me in mind. Put me in place of the nameless, faceless non-heterosexual that is being denied because of these laws and ask yourself, “Am I okay with my friend being treated this way?” If your answer is yes, unfriend me now. I won’t be upset. I won’t be angry, but I don’t want you to act like you’re my friend while supporting the idea that my basic civil rights are less than yours because of something I cannot change about myself. God knows I tried.
I have 170 friends on FB right now. Let’s see how many people I lose.
