Straightening out heretics (SOURCE)
(OKLAHOMA CITY) If the obvious is obvious, then why skirt around the obvious word? Isn't it obvious gays and lesbians are the obvious targets?
Let me explain.
Here's an OU Daily Oklahoman story about Nelson's (R-HD 87) attempt to obliterate the obvious.
And here's another POV of Nelson's obvious gay-hating bill from beyond Okie-land borders.

See! I'm not infected with the Tenther-Birther-Tea-Bag virus.
It's obvious GOPer Rep. Nelson isn't satisfied that in Oklahoma there's an immoral and illegal constitutional amendment imposed by the voters in 2004 preventing recognition by the state of same-gender marriages, part of my civil rights.
Having done everything obviously to sequester gay and lesbian couples in the public forum, Nelson now wants to go after clergy performing ceremonies that have no legal recognition outside the walls of their sanctuaries. This obvious desire runs smack against the First Amendment guarantee of freedom of, and freedom from, religion.
Why do religious fundies in Oklahoma not understand that they've killed the golden goose of their gay hatred by passing restrictive laws and amendments against gay and lesbian taxpayers. The only obvious thing to do next is to restrict our movements within the state, segregating us to gay ghettos as the Nazis did to the Jews of Germany.
