    "We've gotta take a stand… You can't say an immoral behavior according to God's word, what we've all been taught since the beginning, is something that's just, and that's really kind what this is all about. We'd better uphold Christian morals. As an example, how about fornication, adultery, and other issues."
    -- Paul Shepherd, speaking before the Idaho House of Representatives, March 20, 2015 [via: ThinkProgress]
