So the DFL will pack it with Liberals and Rent Seekers who will write a report to the Legislature detailing how hateful our laws are. What then?
Take Murder, for instance. If my daughter dates a Jew, she shames me, shames my whole family. I must kill her, my religion says so. But Minnesota law says no. Hateful.
Accommodate or assimilate?
Assimilate in your accomodation. Peasant.
