This week, I have my mind on Rep. Cecil Bell.
Until earlier this month, I considered Rep. Bell a friend of the show. That was until Bell introduced a bill that would prohibit county clerks from issuing same-sex marriage licenses. Clerks who violated this directive would lose salaries, pensions, and benefits. He would willfully through his hatred jeopardize the livelihood and safety nets of people who would simply seek to do their jobs. Because he cannot criminalize homosexual relationships, he would criminalize government recognition of them. He has made county clerks accessories to crimes that do not exist.
