Shower Curtain Chronicles: Marriage Equality Bill

Shower Curtain Chronicles

Latex painted shower curtains make great, cheap, waterproof banners to display at demonstrations, over freeways or anyplace you want to take it to the anti-gay, anti-Constitution fascists. This blog will feature banners I've made over the years, commentary on the outrages du jour, general observations and accounts of the latest actions by our blog troop as we wield the bathroom accessory cum political billboard.

Marriage Equality Bill

Monday morning I'm bringing a marriage equality bill to the Revisor's office to be properly written up. It's called the Religious Freedom And Family Protection Act and it will end official discrimination against same sex couples in the state of Minnesota.

During a conversation I had with Rep. Mike Jaros in front of the Senate on Thursday regarding marriage equality, I told him that I was sick of all the pussy footing around on the edges on marriage discrimination and asked how I could get a straight forward, full marriage equality bill written up. He told me that I should write instructions on what I want the bill to say, then bring it to the Revisor on the seventh floor of the State Office Building on Jaros' authority. So that's what I'm doing.

In preparing the bill, I relied heavily on the California marriage bill that has twice passed their legislature. The Minnesota bill renders gender-neutral, Minnesota's marriage statutes and all gender-specific language pertaining to marriage wherever found in state law.

Over my years of protesting marriage discrimination at the legislature, representatives and senators have told me they would vote for a marriage equality bill. Maybe now they'll get that opportunity.
