Pennsylvania Blogger Threatens to Out Senators for Anti-Gay Vote

Pennsylvania takes up the issue of a constitutional ban on same-sex marriage today. One blogger has decided that enough is enough and he is using his blog to fight back. The Pennsylvania Progressive's John Morgan says he knows who's in the closet in the state capital of Harrisonburg and has threatened out any closeted gays who support an anti-gay amendment to the state's constitution.

On Friday, Morgan wrote: Do you remember last year when State Sen. John Eichelberger debated Sen. Daylin Leach about marriage equality?  He said this about the gay and lesbian citizens of Pennsylvania:  "we allow them to exist."  No one "allows me to exist."  The threat implied by those words outraged Pennsylvanians everywhere. ...He wants to make discrimination in Pennsylvania legal and his actions doing so will encourage violence against GLBT persons.  After all, if these people are second class citizens under the law isn't it OK to bash them, assault them or even kill them?  Isn't that what Sen. Eichelberger meant when he said "we allow them to exist?" 

Morgan says he's serious about fighting the homophobes in the Keystone State, "I spend a fair amount of time in Harrisburg.  I know who is closeted.  Any closeted Senator who votes for Eichelberger's bill will be outed.  I also know a State Senator who is wildly homophobic and is also an alcoholic.  One of her rants will also be made public depending on her vote.  This is fair warning."

  1. Love it....simply love it.If you haven't seen the documentary..."Outrage" watch it.I do not condone "outing" anyone...although I am reminded that so many still tolerate (existing) in a closet full of old smelly shoes,dispair,anguish
    deceit, etc. I did...and it wasn't nice...I attempted to literally run from myself...from my soul's identity. That was futile of course,and so destructive and wasteful of life itself. That many closeted gay elected officials attempt to "hide" from everyone,including themselves, by facilitating hatred against us,their actual community, through legislation is abhorent and must be exposed to it's naked hypocritiacal and paradoxical core. This action-threat(?) may have legal ramifications for John....however it seems to be justifiable action in our continuing struggle for our basic civil rights.We don't need our own actively legislating against us, while pretending to be someone else...what..? It's time they see the light of day for their own good...and that the greater community sees them for being the result of THEIR oppression on them.
