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."
