Super anti-biggot Washington State Senator Mike Hewitt (R-Walla Walla) is sponsoring the superconstitutional antidiscrimination bill, SB 5927. Way cool, Mike!

The bill says that you may not refuse to do commerce or real estate with someone who is ghey or an immigrant or a veteran unless your "sincerely held religious beliefs" of the Flyin' Spaghetti Monster get bent. So when fellow Washingtonian dude Jay Castro called Mike Hewitt’s office and was all WTF? about those pesky details, this is how things went down:

Quote:
[Castro] says he asked staffers some variation of the question “What are rural gays supposed to do if the only gas station or grocery store for miles won’t sell them gas and food?”

Castro says the staffer at Hewitt’s office surprised him with the answer “Well, gay people can just grow their own food.”

...and hung up on Castro because...courage.

And to think, we have been looking for religious fanaticism in central Asia when they've been in eastern Washington this whole time.

Besides, everyone knows there are no such thing as a rural ghey, anyway.

Don't you know Walla Walla is in the Middle East? Midway between the coast and Hayden Lake.
