An openly gay lawmaker was silenced by colleagues on the Pennsylvania House floor Thursday when he attempted to speak about the Supreme Court's decision to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act.State Rep. Brian Sims (D-Philadelphia) took to the House floor on Thursday to discuss the high court's landmark ruling, … , Sims' remarks were blocked by several state lawmakers using a procedural maneuver.One of those lawmakers, conservative state Rep. Daryl Metcalfe (R-Butler), told WHYY that he believed Sims' comments would be a violation of "God's law.""I did not believe that as a member of that body that I should allow someone to make comments such as he was preparing to make that ultimately were just open rebellion against what the word of God has said, what God has said, and just open rebellion against God's law," Metcalfe said.Two other Democrats attempted to speak in support of Sims, but they too were blocked.
Not only is Metcalfe a member of the extremist, ultraconservative American Legislative Exchange Council.
He is founder president of the anti-immigration, racist bigot group State Legislators for Legal Immigration (SLLI).
