The Web site eQualityGiving.org uses an Equality Scorecard to rank the 50 states and D.C. on gay rights. Not surprisingly, Texas scores pretty low, just 1.5 points out of a maximum of six. Twenty-five states score higher than Texas, while 15 score lower and 10 have the same score. The 10 states that have the same score as Texas include Kentucky, Oklahoma, Kansas and South Dakota. Yikes!!!
But here is perhaps the saddest, most pathetic part: On the right side of the main page of the Web site, eight state-level LGBT equality organizations are listed as participating partners, and readers are asked to vote for one of the groups. Whichever group receives the most votes is to receive $1,000. In last place, with just 1 percent of the votes (despite mine this morning), is good old Equality Texas. C’mon now folks!!!
