Then you haven’t met Tim Ravndal, the leader of the Big Sky Tea Party. Here is a horrific exchange between Ravndal and a few of his colleagues, which took place on Ravndal’s Facebook page. Transcript courtesy of D Gregory Smith at the excellent blog From Eternity to Here:
Tim Ravndal: “Marriage is between a man and a woman period! By giving rights to those otherwise would be a violation of the constitution and my own rights”
Kieth Scranton: “How dare you exercise your First Amendment Rights?”
Dennis Scranton: “I think fruits are decorative. Hang up where they can be seen and appreciated. Call Wyoming for display instructions.”
Tim Ravndal: “@Kieth, OOPS I forgot this aint[sic] America no more! @ Dennis, Where can I get that Wyomingprinted instruction manual?”
Dennis Scranton: Should be able to get info Gazette archives. Maybe even an illustration. Go back a bit over ten years.”
UPDATE: MrMike, who found the post, has the original screenshot here.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the references, Matthew Shepard was a 21-year-old student at the University of Wyoming who was tortured and murdered near Laramie, Wyoming, in October 1998 because he was gay. Shepard’s murder brought national and international attention to the issue of hate crime legislation at the state and federal levels.
Tim Ravndal is also the individual who is helping Kristi Allen-Gailushas with her crusade against nutrition, health, and the prevention of bullying.
