Where does it stop?

Posted by on June 13 at 9:51 AM

The state head of “mainstream” Christian conservative group suggested today that gays should be made to wear “labels.”

And not the labels we already do - not designer labels, not labels that let people know about our sexual identity. No, he means warning. You know, like the Nazis made the Jews wear in Germany before they started roundin up Jews and sending them to camps. Labels that would alert our fellow citizens to avoid and/or shun us. (Well, fellow citizens for now — no doubt the American Taliban have plan to strip homos of our citizenship at some point.)

John Aravosis at Americablog is on the case.

Every day there’s a fresh outrage, another Nuremburg-lite law passed, or Rick Perry, Republican Governor of Texas, advising gays to leave that state. Canada is looking better than ever.
