Ah Geeze! You want to rethink that Veto Arnold?

According to 365gay:

(Cazenovia, Wisconsin) A 15-year old charged in the Friday shooting death of his high school principal was angry that the man and others at the school had failed to stop classmates from bullying him court documents allege.


According to court papers filed late Friday by the prosecutor in Sauk County Circuit Court Hainstock told police after he was taken into custody that students regularly bullied him - calling him "fag" and "faggot" and rubbed up against him.

The documents say that the teenager told police he was so frustrated that Klang and teachers would do nothing to stop the harassment he decided to arm himself.

And in other news, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger vetoed AB 606 (Levine), an anti-bullying act. This bill would require a school district to establish and publicize an antidiscrimination and antiharassment policy that prohibits discrimination and harassment based on specified characteristics, including, but not limited to, actual or perceived gender identify and sexual orientation.

So what I want to know is this: Are you still feeling pretty good about that veto Arnold? Was that little bone you threw to the Religious Right to keep them at bay worth it? Because the Traditional Values Coalition sure thinks so:

Praise God, Governor Schwarzenegger Vetoes SB 1437

A public outcry was lifted by your letters, phone calls, and rallies joining the entire Republican caucus in the California Senate and Assembly asking Governor Schwarzenegger to veto SB 1437 which was passed by the homosexual dominated Democratic legislature.

We must thank the Governor for “keeping his word.”

And we must continue the outcry against the other homosexual education bills
AB 606 and AB 1056 plus SB 1471, a sex education bill by Senator Sheila Kuehl.
