Not if you're gay. Governor Bob McDonnell has issued an executive order effectively overturning a ban on discrimination against state workers on the basis of sexual preference.

The piece begins with Virginia State Delegate Bob Marshall's explanation for the increase in number of children born with handicaps after a first abortion.

It always strikes me as unbearably outrageous when any government takes civil rights of any kind away from its citizens. Gov. McDonnell's executive order is no exception.

I was going to rant about how Virginia is some kind of uniquely reactionary repressive state... but then I recalled that my great, "progressive" state of California all too recently ripped off the right to marriage of some 10% or so of its own citizens.
