Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli continue to call attention to the Commonwealth of Virginia for their bigoted, homophobic policies. Recently the YouTube channel, "Homophobic Watch" posted the following video showing how Virginia's colleges and universities, specifically, the College of William and Mary, are standing their ground against legalized bigotry by not changing their equal protection policies that include sexual orientation and gender expression and identity.
Homophobic Watch's message is simple and direct:
You can put lipstick on a bigot, but its still a bigot, and if McDonnell doesnt put his money where his mouth is with an executive order, his true intentions become clearer. Ladies and gentlemen, confront this homophobia, and here is what you should do:
Respectfully contact Virginina Governor Robert McDonnell by going to governor.virginia.gov or calling (804) 786-2211.
Respectfully support the College of William & Mary's policy of banning discrimination against gay people by contacting them at web.wm.edu/contact/contact.php
Respectfully urge defense contractor Northrop Grumman to reject Virginia as the location for its new national headquarters. To contact them, click on the link in the description box to this video https://appserv.northropgrumman.com/R...
Continue to support the Employment Non-Discrimination Act that would protect LGBT people from discrimination everywhere in the country. To find your Reprsentative, go to writerep.house.gov.
