She said it's 2014, and @governorbutch (yes, please use it!) should listen to his mentor, former Idaho Governor Phil Batt. On October 29, 2013, Governor Batt was honored with the Idaho Human Rights Lifetime Achievement Award. In a speech he gave at the ceremony in Caldwell, Idaho, he said it was "time the Legislature updated the state Human Rights Act to include housing and job discrimination protections for gays, lesbians and transgender individuals."
As I wrote before,
LGBTQ people are being denied the moral imperative that their natural rights be represented and protected. This has to stop. After the 44 were arrested in Boise last Monday, a Moveon.org petition was started to let Idaho legislators know just how much gay and transgender Idahoans and their supporters in the state and the rest of the country want the Four Words "sexual orientation" and "gender identity" added to Idaho’s Human Rights Act without further delay. ...If you haven't signed it, please do so today.Right now the petition has 8064 signatures.
