Pa. lawmakers should stop attacking private citizens

(KRT) - You might recall my past references to the Neanderthal Caucus, that group of Pennsylvania legislators focused on fighting gay marriage, gay-partner benefits, gay anything.

This not-quite-fully-evolved clan tried in March to move 50-some bills to keep gays as legally far apart and isolated as possible.

For political reasons, including a pending primary election, legislative leaders held them at bay. Not everyone approves of violating civil rights.

Well, they're grunting and growling again - on two fronts.

A group of 12 lawmakers (the apostles?) is suing a same-sex Bucks County couple for seeking a marriage license.
