That's right. I said it. Shame on me.
You can go back to the first post on this blog, and I realized today that prior to this RFRA controversy that I have never demanded in a blog post here that LGBT Hoosiers be added to the state's non-discrimination law. Shame on me for never advocating for it, and shame on me for never bringing it up here.
I'm sorry to all my LGBT friends who live outside of one of the communities that have Human Rights Ordinances on the books that I've never fought for. I'm very sorry. I messed up, and it took this RFRA mess to make me realize it and to make me realize what I should be doing now on this blog.
I guess sometimes you miss what's right in front of you, and I should have done more prior to today to make LGBT Hoosiers a protected class under the state's non-discrimination law.
Now that I know where I've come up short in the past, I can correct my error. This has become a front-burner issue so quickly, and we have those that passed the RFRA the first time around to thank. It's at the front of our consciousness now, and I won't let it slide from mine.
