Ohio school that sounds like it should be in Florida, sued by Ohio Rep. who sounds like he won't be invited to our wedding

by Jeremy Hooper

  Ohio State Rep. Tom Brickman Jr. (pic.) has filed a lawsuit against Oxford's Miami University, seeking a cease-insure on the school's policy of offering benefits to the same-sex partners of its employees. Brickman claims that the state's constitutional ban on queer nuptials renders the medical/dental-offering practice unlawful.

The lawmaker is quoted by various outlets as unsympathetically advising the partners of gay employees that they should "go get a job that gives them benefits. They don't have a ball and chain around them..."

...a statement we find shocking, mainly due to how easily we can imagine his next word being "yet."
