American Taliban Not As Powerful As They Thought

Update on that outrageous Michigan GOP attempt to codify religious bullying of gays kids.

The Michigan Senate passed an anti-bullying bill last week that includes a “moral convictions” loophole, but the Republican Speaker of the House says the final legislation will probably not go that far.

Ari Adler, spokesperson for Michigan Speaker of the House Jase Bolger (R), told the Michigan Messenger that “the bill as passed by the Senate, is not what the final law will look like.”


Adler says that after they reviewed the bill’s language, Bolger said he opposed the religious exemption clause, and that other House Republicans had concerns about it “as soon as they heard the first news reports with details.”


Oh, yeah right. They didn’t read it. (Actually, I might believe that.) When they had concerns was “as soon as they heard the first news reports.” Period. The ones where lots of people were pissed.

....but hey, do what you want....you will anyway.
