The Montana law outlawing homosexuality was ruled unconstitutional years ago, but it's still on the books. A bill has been introduced to simply reconcile the language of the criminal code and the law.
Not so simple.
And not so fast.
Mike Wessler of the Montana Democrats:
During the hearing, opponents of the bill, both those testifying and on committee said some of the most disgusting things about gay, lesbian and bisexual people that I have ever heard. One opponent of the bill said that all pedophiles were gay or bisexual. A member of the committee asked a series of questions in order to suggest that gay men are simply HIV positive tax burdens.
Warning: this is some of the most vile asshattery I've ever heard.
