The Michigan Legislature recently passed a bill addressing the issue of bullying. Except the “religious provisions” in the bill allow for bullying based on religious motives. Basically, If you bully someone for being gay but you do it because you believe the Bible tells you to do it, then you’re ok.
State Senator Gretchen Whitmer gives the legislature the tongue lashing it deserves:
I would expect something like this from my home state of Alabama, but I thought things would be different here in Michigan. You’ll find ignorant bigots in every state.
