Hawaii State Rep. Jo Jordan sure angered the LGBT community when she voted against marriage equality. After all, she is a lesbian, so you think she’d be looking out for our interests. But, no. Jordan had a Palin-esque explanation of her opposition that, once you wade through the word salad, revolved around protecting the rights of religious people who hate our guts.
Needless to say, Jo Jordan is now the pin-up girl for the religious right. The Family Research Council is now applauding her for betraying the LGBT community and siding with the homophobes. According to FRC, “the people who were truly hostile, says Jordan, were her own LGBT community.”
Now why is that, we wonder?
Of course, this is a chance for FRC to slam “homosexual activists [who] will harass anyone who isn’t one hundred percent sold out to their radical agenda to remake society. Unfortunately, Jo Jordan found that out the hard way. Hopefully, her story will help dissuade others from trying to appease the extreme Left on marriage.”
So, thanks again go to Jo, for not only voting against marriage equality but for giving the religious right a martyr that perfectly suits its purposes.
