Virginia is for haters

Posted By on Sat, Mar 6, 2010 at 6:44 AM

Virginia's new attorney general, a "family values" Republican like the governor, is following in the governor's footsteps in making it clear that Virgnia is unfriendly to gay people.

He's told the state's colleges and universities that they have no authority for policies against discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation. (The University of Arkansas, to name one, has such a policy. Also some enlightened private employers like Wal-Mart.)

It just won't do in the America of these god-fearing fellows to deprive people of the ability to hire, fire or otherwise punish gay people for their sexual orientation.
