Breaking News – Josh Brecheen is still a hypocritical homophobic religious zealot

With all apologies to Ralph Shortey, Joseph Silk, John Bennett, Justin Humphrey and 60 or so other elected officials, the top Derplahoman currently serving in Oklahoma government is State Senator Josh Brecheen.

This guy is the Lord of the Derplahomans. Each year, he does everything possible to impose his antiquated, religious-based moral code on law-abiding Oklahomans. And for added effect, does it in a hypocritical style that would even make Donald Trump proud.

For example, take a look at this gem from his Senate bio:

While in the State Senate, Josh will focus on job creation, low taxation, and reduction of government waste. He wants to reduce needless government regulations, improve education, advocate for agricultural interests and promote local control and constitutional rights.

Yep, there you have it. Josh likes to "promote local control and constitutional rights." I guess that explains why he recently authored and introduced Senate Bill 694. If passed and signed into law, it will prevent municipalities from enacting ordinances the protect the LGBT community from housing discrimination.

Via Fox News 23:

Groups across the Sooner State fear an Oklahoma bill that could strip LGBT protections across the Sooner State as it moves one step closer to becoming law.

Senate Bill 694 bans cities from offering more protections for LGBT folks than the state offers.

If the bill passes, Tulsa's Fair Housing Act that stops landlords from denying housing to LGBTQ people would become illegal.

The Tulsa city council added the act in April 2015 after the local LGBT community asked for an equal housing ordinance for more than 40 years.

The bill, written by State Senator Josh Brecheen (R-District 6), would also affect non-discrimination ordinances in Oklahoma City and Norman.

That's nice. I know when I think of ways to promote local control and constitutional rights, the first thing the pops in my head is making it more difficult for municipalities to prevent discrimination. As an added bonus, it also helps Josh accomplish his goal of "job creation." Let's be honest, what business wouldn't want to move to a state that values the antiquated, intolerant beliefs of religious zealots over that of law-abiding individuals who have done nothing wrong? We're going to have to figure out a way to deal with all the businesses that want to move here.
