Reality changes minds: Ohio State Representative changes positions on gun control after being confronted by a gun-wielding criminal.

Pro-Darwinian evolutionist Ken Miller had previously stated:

I’m sure he’s busy updating his textbooks as I write.

Of course the real problem here is bullying, which is wrong in all its forms. We don’t need special anti-bullying laws for gays, ex-gays, the obese, the smart, the dumb, etc. Just simple no tolerance rules that are enforced equally. Otherwise you get into ridiculous scenarios like the ones above.

These groups don’t just want to stop bullying. There are more effective ways to do that. They are trying to normalize perversions, entice kids and silence anyone who disagrees with them.
