Idiot of the Week: Missouri State Congressman Claims Gay People Are "not human"

Believe it or not, there is an American congressman who genuinely does not understand the definition of human being. He basically thinks gay people are "not human."
How do these fools get elected? 
We wouldn't be surprised if he was another closeted Republican who gay bashes to throw off his constituents.
WAIT! There's MORE! He's even wackier than that:
Rick Brattin, Who Wants Anti-Evolution Lessons In Missouri Schools: "I'm A Science Enthusiast" .https://www.riverfronttimes.com/newsblog/2013/02/07/rick-brattin-who-wants-anti-evolution-lessons-in-missouri-schools-im-a-science-enthusiast

Here's the original story:

Missouri state Representative Rick Brattin, revealed that he believed "there is a "distinction" between human beings and people who are gay" during a debate over a bill protecting the state's LGBTQ community from discrimination.

In Missouri, citizens can legally be discriminated against based on their sexual orientation. On May 8, state legislators attempted to pass an amendment banning sexual-orientation-based prejudice when Brattin expressed his concern over the proposal.


"When you look at the tenets of religion, of the Bible, of the Quran, of other religions, there is a distinction between homosexuality and just being a human being," Brattin told the House floor. According to The Kansas City Star , Brattin has yet to clarify his statement, although it aligns with his previous push for teaching creationism in public schools.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
