Kentucky Gov. Ernie Fletcher is a BIGOT!!!

We thought we had it bad in Texas, but when a governor calls for a special legislative session just to pass a law that contains discrimination, it is much worse. Fletcher panders to the worst part of the far right wing and religious right(oh so wrong) to score points. I hope the good people of Kentucky recognize this for what it is…BIGOTRY at it’s worse!!!

Kentucky Lawmakers To Consider Gay Partner
Benefits Ban In Special Session
by 365Gay.com Newscenter Staff

(Frankfort, Kentucky) Kentucky Gov. Ernie
Fletcher is calling for a special session of the legislature and said Tuesday he
wants it to consider a new attempt to ban domestic partner insurance at state
run colleges and public agencies.

Legislation to prohibit publicly funded
universities and colleges from extending domestic partner benefits to families
of faculty and staff was narrowly defeated last march in committee.

The bill was prepared after the University of
Louisville decided in July to offer the benefits – making it the first publicly
funded college in the state to do so. (story) The
University of Kentucky later followed also offering health benefits to same-sex
domestic partners.
