Seems Colorado Governor Ritter signed into law a bill that prohibits discrimination based upon sexual orientation. In essence, and ENDA bill.
And as usual, the batshit crazy religious fundies at Focus on the Family was one of the prime opponents to the bill.
And as Opponents said the bill would have serious consequences, such as opening up Colorado public restrooms and locker rooms to all genders and transgender people, exposing children and women to sexual predators.
In that statement they automatically associate men and LGBT with being sexual predators. There are already places where men and women and children all mix and nary a report of predation has come out that.
Again, the religious fuckwits maintain that being gay is a choice when we who are gay know that it is NOT a choice. I made no conscious choice to be gay. But now they take it a step further and call me a sexual predator.
Honestly the religious aren’t happy unless they’re fighting against someone or crying discrimination against themselves.
Megachurch shooting details December 10, 2007Posted by truthspew in atheism, religion.

We’re seeing more details filtering out about the shooter at the two church sites in Colorado. Turns out Matthew Murray was a home schooled and deeply religious person.
We now know he was kicked out of Youth With a Mission, but why was he kicked out? I’ll be very interested to see that published.
All I can say is that I feel religion is a pox upon humanity. Isn’t it always the case the the ultra-religious are the ones who bounce off the wall and come back killing people?
It’s funny, I left a comment on a YouTube video about racism. Someone else mentioned hating because of religion but I’m going to take an argument that some religious have used against gay people and turn it back at them.
I don’t consider myself racist. I know that black people have darker skin because of genetic sequence changes due to environment.Or that Asians have different eyes because at one point there was a genetic advantage to not having the fold of skin.
But I reserve my scorn for religion and the religious. You choose a religion, or it’s chosen for you by your parents in the case of Catholicism. As such it deserves no respect from me.
In other words what I’m trying to say here is keep your religion to yourself, though I’d ultimately like to see the world freed from religious tyranny.
