So I see this story all over the place, and what I DIDN’T see in any of the ‘news’ stories, is ANY reference to the TEXT of the bill or even reference to the number or name of the bill so that people could be INFORMED, or rather so people wouldn’t be IGNORANT and MANIPULATED.

Regardless of whether you think homosexuals need a specific protection beyond anyone else or anything else, if you have ANY opinion on this without knowing what the bill was, you ARE being very effectively manipulated.
