There is no shortage of anti-gay craziness in the South Carolina legislature

Some South Carolina legislators are busy little bigots, trying to find ways to sabotage same-sex marriage in their state. Over two months have passed since South Carolina joined the 21st century. In that time nobody's traditional marriage has been affected. Moreover, don't these people have more important issues to deal with? How about education?

H.3150; Let's license discrimination:
TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 8-1-15 SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT NO AGENCY, OFFICIAL, OR EMPLOYEE OF THIS STATE OR ANY POLITICAL SUBDIVISION THEREOF SHALL ENFORCE OR IMPOSE A CIVIL, ADMINISTRATIVE, OR CRIMINAL SANCTION OR PENALTY WHICH PENALIZES OR OTHERWISE PUNISHES IN ANY MANNER AN INDIVIDUAL OR ENTITY FOR ITS REFUSAL TO PROVIDE GOODS OR SERVICES IN CONNECTION WITH A MARRIAGE OF TWO INDIVIDUALS OF LIKE GENDER.
H.3022; Fuck the courts. Let's just outlaw same-sex marriage again:
TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 20-1-235 SO AS TO PROHIBIT THE USE OF TAXPAYER FUNDS AND PAYMENT OF GOVERNMENT SALARIES AND BENEFITS FOR ACTIVITIES RELATED TO THE LICENSING AND SUPPORT OF SAME-SEX MARRIAGE, TO PROHIBIT GOVERNMENT EMPLOYEES FROM RECOGNIZING, GRANTING, OR ENFORCING SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LICENSES, TO PROHIBIT THE USE OF TAXES OR OTHER PUBLIC FUNDS TO ENFORCE A COURT ORDER TO ISSUE A SAME-SEX MARRIAGE LICENSE, TO REQUIRE COURTS TO DISMISS CERTAIN LEGAL ACTIONS RELATED TO THE LICENSING AND RECOGNITION OF SAME-SEX MARRIAGE AND TO AWARD ATTORNEY'S FEES AND COSTS IN THOSE ACTIONS, AND TO PROVIDE FOR THE PROTECTION OF THE STATE FROM LIABILITY FOR CERTAIN CONDUCT.
S.31; You have got to be kidding:
TO MAKE APPLICATION BY THE STATE OF SOUTH CAROLINA UNDER ARTICLE V OF THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION FOR A CONVENTION OF THE STATES TO BE CALLED RESTRICTED TO PROPOSE AN AMENDMENT TO THE UNITED STATES CONSTITUTION TO ESTABLISH THAT MARRIAGE IN THE UNITED STATES SHALL CONSIST ONLY OF THE UNION OF A MAN AND A WOMAN.
Points for creativity? Nah.
