Ohio rec center says "no way, homo-gay" to lesbian couple

by Jeremy Hooper

Ohio's 'mo marriage-banning amendment is being used to justify denying a lesbian couple and their children a "family" pass to their local recreation center.

According to the AP, when Heather Scott and Carrie Scott attempted to purchase a "family pass" to the Mason Community Center for themselves and Heather's three children, they were told they "don't fit the city's definition of a married couple." In order to join the club, the five-some would have to pay $525 for Heather and the kiddies and an additional $335 for Carrie.

Pricey.

However, we are hearing that the the center is mulling the possibility of a "Second-Class Sodomites and Their Children Pass," will be be priced at $666.

Still pricey. Marriage bans are bullsh*t.
