“This is no different than the Klan standing outside of voter booths in Alabama when blacks would dare to go vote”

SOUNDBITES — “This is no different than the Klan standing outside of voter booths in Alabama when blacks would dare to go vote.” —Referendum 71 proponent Larry Stickney, on attempts to get the names of ballot measure petitioners publicly disclosed. Stickney says supporters of letting voters weigh in on domestic partnerships are “a bunch of little old ladies and nice people who go to church.” []

      That is the typical line out of the bigots playbook this election cycle. “Trying to interfere with our bigotry, hatred, and attempts to make you a second class citizen is Bigotry!”.

      Sorry folks, but if god really hates gays and the lord is on your side and the majority of America agrees with you there should be no problem with your “Coming out” and having the country see that you donated to support hate. Hell, if we gays can come out to our family and friends, then it shouldn’t be too hard for a bunch of you big strong straights to admit to donating some money to your bigoted hate filled cause now should it?

      Um, Mr. Stickney? Cloaking the names of the people who signed your petition is EXACTLY like the hoods and sheets that the Klan wears.

      I, myself, would never initiate a Klan reference, but since you opened the door, I hope you don’t mind that I’ve taken up your invitiation.

      Bigots try to hide their own identities, so they cannot be held accountable by their neighbors. The KKK wore white sheets, to hide their identities. The current crop of bigots want to keep the public petitions secret, to hide their identities.

      The psychology is straight forward. They are emboldened to harm other people when they believe they will not be held accountable for their actions.

      When you sign a piece of paper and give it to the government, it becomes the governments piece of paper. That piece of paper becomes a “public record”.
