    Republican Jim Petro helps lead OH Freedom to Marry campaign

    Things seem to be building in Ohio. Now the former Republican Ohio Atty Gen etc, etc is speaking up for marriage equality. I got this in an email this AM.

    In taking a leadership role on the Ohio Freedom to Marry campaign earlier this month, what Republican former Ohio Attorney General, State Auditor and Chancellor Jim Petro said is powerful and moving.

    But don't take my word for it, see for yourself. Watch the short video and learn more about how Ohio is preparing to win the Freedom to Marry in 2014.

    "I believe in marriage equality, and I believe Ohio will be better and have better prospects for economic growth and prosperity.

    There are a lot of issues that we need to address that foster equality, not inequality, and really move away from discrimination and begin to recognize the worth and value of all our citizens."
    -- Jim Petro

    Why can't more Republicans be like this? Hell, even a lot of my family's republican friends are disgusted with the republican party because of all of the Christian fundamentalism taking place of the fiscal responsibility and the lower taxes.

    Well this means that Rancid Prepuce and the RNC will have to drive to Ohio and put the guy in concrete shoes.

    Hopefully he isn't planning on running for an office again in the future.

    Interestingly, some of the Republicans I know here are in very low-rent places (living on food stamps, BTW), and since it's still kind of a fact in this town that gays and lesbians can't rent anywhere nice, they have as neighbors our few open gay and lesbian couples. Many of them have come to be more tolerant than far wealthier Democrats who don't have to know anything about gays. And they, too, have become correspondingly disgusted with the Christianism in the GOP -- though they almost all attend fundie churches like Church of the Nazarene.

    "Thirty-one* states allow all qualified citizens to carry concealed weapons. In those states, homosexuals should embark on organized efforts to become comfortable with guns, learn to use them safely and carry them. They should set up Pink Pistols task forces, sponsor shooting courses and help homosexuals get licensed to carry. And they should do it in a way that gets as much publicity as possible. "

    I think it would be safer to put the repeal of Ohio's ban up in 2016,not 2014.
    I will say the current case of the terminally ill man and his husband highlights the bigotry and cruelty of the ban and will help our side.

    I want to hear one of these wiser Republicans ask the others to show us just where Jesus -- or Paul, or Peter -- said to make the government conform to any standard of righteousness at all.
