“Senate Bill 119 – revise the Human Relations Act to allow certain discriminatory practices to be investigated by municipalities and counties” was rescheduled to be heard Monday, Feb 6th, by the Senate Health and Human Services Committee to vote whether it will go out on the Senate Floor for a vote.  This is a bad bill.  References are below.

American Clarion Jan. 24, 2012 by Bob Ellis:

“Obviously this is another bill designed to advance the homosexual agenda, seeking to provide special protections for homosexuals.

If homosexuals insist on engaging in this dangerous and immoral practice in the privacy of their own homes, no one is trying to stop them. But forcing society to accept and accommodate their behavior is just plain wrong.  What we practice in the privacy of our own residence is one thing, but forcing another person to acknowledge, legitimize, cater to, enable, accommodate, further or promote a dangerous and immoral practice is itself immoral and unconscionable.”

Read Bob Ellis’ excellent story
 “South Dakota Bill Highlight: SB 119” for talking points.  The bill is included.  Notice all of the underlined (added) sections:

sexual orientation, gender identity
Sexual orientation,” means homosexuality, heterosexuality, or bisexuality;
“Gender identity,” the gender-related identity, appearance, mannerisms, or other gender-related characteristics of an individual, with or without regard to the individual’s designated sex at birth;

    HOW DARE THERE BE A BILL PROTECTING THE RIGHTS OF SOUTH DAKOTANS WHO AREN’T LIKE YOU. NAY I SAY NAY. THERE SHOULD BE CAMPS FOR THESE PEOPLE.(<That there is sarcasm.)  Homophobia will get you nowhere in the eyes of the Lord, friend. 

    • Bob Ellis

      I’m not sure what all your babbling at the end is supposed to mean, but I don’t think we need “camps” for homosexuals. We don’t need special rights and protections for a behavior that is immoral, unnatural, and extremely dangerous, either.

      • Landon VanBuskirk

        “immoral” according to you. And your beliefs. Not everyone follows those beliefs. 

        • Bob Ellis

          According to my beliefs…and the doctrine of every major religion in the world–including Christianity, which more than 80% of Americans ascribe to.

          Not everyone believes it is immoral to steal from others, but guess what: the immoral designation of theft applies to them whether they believe it or not, as do the consequences.

          You should consider coming in from the cold and embrace what’s right. As a former rebel I can tell you: life works a lot better when you try to live right.

      Imagined “rights” to impose your warped, unhealthy, unnatural, immoral world view on others are the antithesis of rights.  Intelligent people know the difference.

      • Bob Ellis

        Good point, Spouse. This isn’t about protecting homosexuals so much as it is demanding obeisance to politically correctness and homosexual behavior.

        • Anonymous

          Right, Bob.  Whenever a homosexual activist spouts the “rights” meme, I know that this implies that many good people will be forced to go against their established belief system to accept homosexuality to some degree.
