Hehehe. Louis is hilarious. America's finest standup comedian.

I started typing up odd quotes from the vid but then realised I was wanting to quote the entire thing - and like - you've already done that.....

In the same vein,

Lee Bright, State Senator (R) in South Carolina, shows his BINO (Bright In Name Only) credentials in this fiery speech on the floor of the senate chamber to open the debate on the subject of removing the Confederate Battle Flag.


He doesn't talk much about the flag, but he does preach about gay marriage. Bright is not bright.

WOW.

Sorry to be so naive, but I had no idea that an elected official in the Senate could actually stand up and talk about sin, God, the Devil and "deviant" behaviour regarding gay marriage. I really didn't realise.

Preachers, council officials, African leaders (not being racist, but homophobia is rife in African politics), Russians (ditto). But this is America. Y'all have laws against this kind of thing. You taught the world about acceptance of the individual.

I guess it swings both ways. And I don't mean Lee Bright.

When I wrote "could" I meant it in the context of "could actually hold those views and say them and not be hounded/ laughed at/ pilloried/ immediately removed from public office by popular opinion".
Although your response would still apply.

I suppose the best test of a liberal/ truly democratic attitude (both terms used in the wider sense) is listening to someone trash your opinions and not acting on the urge to suppress them.

STATE Senate it is, which means that he was elected in a legislative district that is 1/46th of South Carolina, or about 90,000 voters. State senators and representatives can be counted on to deliver this sort of crap and is always why they don't graduate to higher office.

Ah, thank you.
I wondered why it didn't seem as grand as I always pictured the Senate.

While everything UT said was true, that should not construed to mean that shit doesn't go on at a federal level also.

It's no accident that the only two professions where the person's spouse is as much a fixture as the person themselves are pastor and politician.
