Marryland Republican Governor Fires Antigay Bigot

The governor of Maryland fired an antigay bigot from the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority after Robert J. Smith made derogatory remarks against gays on a local TV talk show. Read the article below, then if you agree with the action of Governor Ehrlich, why not let him know of your support. And, at the same time, let the friends of antigay hate including Mr. Smith know your thoughts as well.

Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr.

Governor of Maryland

Dear Governor Ehrlich:

Thank-you for terminating antigay bigot Robert J. Smith from his position on the DC Metro transportation board.

I am sick and tired of people using religion to bash their fellow citizens and to discriminate against us in access to equal civil rights. No one in your position would tolerate persons citing religion as they attacked Jews or African Americans, and it is time that public officials take the same position regarding attacks on gays. Again, thank-you for doing so.

I say good riddance to Smith. Now he'll have more time to contemplate his religious truths, bigotry masquerading as righteousness.
