a taste of their own medicine

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

A state senator from Ohio, Robert Hagan, has proposed legislation that would “ban households with one or more Republican voters from adopting children or acting as foster parents.” The reason is that “credible research” shows that children of GOP households have a higher incidence of:

"emotional problems, social stigmas, inflated egos, and alarming lack of tolerance for others they deem different than themselves and an air of overconfidence to mask their insecurities."

Hagan’s proposal, of course, directly parodies the homophobic legislation proposed earlier by Ohio Representative Ron Hood. I wonder how it feels for the bigots to get a taste of their own medicine; does their prejudice even register as such when they are directly confronted with it?

The Bradenton Herald has more details.
