From a religious perspective, yes. I think practicing homosexuality is contrary to God's plan, and that those doing so are putting their souls at risk. That doesn't mean I hate them, as many would claim.

Liberals do exactly what they accuse conservatives of doing, discriminate against those they disagree with. Case in point, affirmative action, which instead of setting an even playing field, discriminates against non-minorities.

Brandishing a Firearm is against the law - DUH!!! I would suspect that the large majority of criminals who use a firearm do not go through any training and are probably not concealed carry card holders. Besides where in the story does it say anything about him receiving such training.

Bill allows schools to opt out as polling place

1 year, 4 months ago from The Associated Press

The bill would let school boards determine if schools could be safely opened to voters

A new bill placed before the Illinois Legislature would let schools opt out of serving as polling places.

State Rep. Jack Franks of Marengo filed the legislation with the support of Comptroller Judy Baar Topinka.

Topinka calls the bill "common-sense legislation" that puts kids first, adding government buildings, churches or other options should be used as polling places.

The bill would let school boards determine if schools could be safely opened to voters. School boards would determine if they could enforce normal safety protocol on Election Day. School board officials would then file a written notice with local election officers if they couldn't.

Franks says allowing voters in schools is an unnecessary risk. He says "protecting children from harm is the most fundamental and basic duty of any government."
