A bill to create health insurance exchanges in Colorado passed out of the Senate today, becoming one of the few bills to make it through the fires of Tea Party and other conservative groups this year. While Republicans largely voted against the bill, it passed with no discussion in the Democratically controlled Senate and is now on its way to the governor's desk.
An outfit calling itself The Christian Anti-Defamation Commission (CADC) has put out a Top 10 list of what it considers “the most outrageous Christian bashing in America in the year 2008.” Coming in at No. 4 is a claim that “Colorado Law Criminalizes the Bible.” What? The assertion is actually a reference to last year's Senate Bill 200, which expands the definition of discrimination to include sexual orientation. At the time, you’ll remember that Colorado Springs-based Focus on the Family went bonkers over the bill, claiming that transgendered people would be able to go into bathrooms and molest children. But criminalizing the Bible? How on earth did Focus miss that angle?
