Ronda storms Hillsborough with anti-gay measure
Ronda Storms, a county commissioner in Florida's Hillsborough County, presented a measure Wednesday evening that bans county government from acknowledging gay pride in any way, shape, or form.
But that's ridiculous, so there's no way it passed, right? I mean it's not necessary for county officials to hop on a float and shake it to "It's Raining Men," but they should display an acceptance for all of their citizens. They certainly shouldn't support an actual policy preventing recognition of this annual month o' gay acceptance. So it had to have failed, yes?
Oh no, my sensible friends - it passed and it passed BIG. In fact, there was only one dissenting vote (bless you, Kathy Castor).
According to the St. Petersburg Times, Storms presented the ridiculousness by saying:
"I move that we adopt a policy that Hillsborough County government abstain from acknowledging, promoting or participating in gay pride recognition and events -- little g, little p."
And to Ms. Storms we would only like to say: big F, big U.
