No means for mean-spirited policies: KY group seeks nixing of school's funding

by Jeremy Hooper

   Due to the news that the University of the Cumberlands expelled a student after learning he was gay, the Kentucky Fairness Alliance, a gay rights group in the Bluegrass State, has asked Gov. Ernie Fletcher to veto a recently passed bill granting $11 million to the school. The group, who presented the governor's office with 400 veto-encouraging emails from local gays and lesbians, is making the request on the assertion that funding discrimination with state dollars is a big ol' load of bullsh*t.

It remains to be seen if Fletcher will also see it this way and put the kibosh on the funds disbursement; though, of course, should the University discover that approximately 10% of the millions are attracted to the assets of those bills whose monetary value matches their own, their raging non-acceptance of such homonetary relationships will render the whole issue moot.
