Good story this morning in the Washington Post about the daughter of a Kansas legislator who shamed him for sponsoring anti-LGBT legislation aimed at finding a way to prevent same-sex marriage.
Christel Highland, the daughter of State Rep. Ron Highland (R), wrote the open letter to her father on Facebook this week, asking him why he would “openly attempt at policy that elevates hate and hurts my family or friends.”
Soon after, the legislator admitted that endorsing the bill “was a mistake.”
“The bill that I should not have signed on to cosponsor contained some hateful language which I do not condone, and it is against our Lord’s command to love our neighbors. I have asked for my name to be removed from the bill. The process for doing so is in motion,” Ron Highland said in a statement to the Wamego Times, according to the Mercury.
Anybody care to write the governor and Arkansas legislators about the bill they supported that legalized discrimination in Arkansas? (It didn’t roll back same-sex marriage. At least not yet.)
