Hero of the Week Award: May 6

6 May

Hero of the Week

While Minnesota has to endure the big ball of crazy that is Michele Bachmann, now the religious right, not satisfied with the current ban on marriage equality, is trying to make the ban a constitutional amendment.  However, amid the absolute craziness of the functioning illiterate and the KKKristians, we have Rep. Steve Simon (D-MN) emerging as this weeks’ hero.  Simon said on Wednesday that being gay is a gift from God.  Simon’s challenge to his colleagues, most definitely, earned his this week’s HWA:

What I’m hearing today and what I heard on Friday was largely a religious justification for change in the Minnesota Constitution. I don’t think that’s right. I don’t think that’s fair.

Simon went on to say:

How many more gay people does God have to create before we ask ourselves whether or not God actually wants them around?

Bravo, Rep. Simon.  Would that more of our political leaders show such courage and true leadership.  Click here to see the full article. Of course, I could not resist adding this bit from our Lady Gaga. A nod to my friend John Abbot for lending me KKKristians.
