(National Report) – Pennsylvania House Representative Daryl Metcalfe (R) has got game. Dungeons and Dragons game to be exact.
When openly gay Pennsylvania state Representative Brian Sims (D) planned to speak on the legislature floor on Wednesday, possibly to rub noses in the carpet, about the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the Defense of Marriage Act, Metcalfe and a gang of other wizards preemptively blocked that noise with a 1st Amendment cork of power and a dice roll.
“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,” - Daryl Metcalfe, Dungeon Master Champion and Pennsylvania State Representative
Stunned into silence by the enchantment, Sims told reporters “I wasn’t planning on chastising anybody. I wasn’t planning on discussing how far we have to come in Pennsylvania or that we really have no civil rights in Pennsylvania.”
Sure you weren’t, because thanks to Daryl Metcalfe, you didn’t! Sims did uncork and make a statement later in the session.
“A few months ago I reminded this House that we put our hands on the Bible and swore to uphold the Constitution, not the other way around. What I did was in no way against the law of any God. I can’t call anyone a bigot, a homophobe or racist, but language used against me does not live up to the standards of this body.” – Brian Sims (D)
Many of Metcalfe’s supporters believe Sim is in over his head, choosing to twist The Constitution so he can win and speak Gay on the House floor.
Dungeons and Dragons is not recommended for the unsanctified, just as speaking in the hallowed halls of Pennsylvania government should be limited to those that can carry the great burden of knowing “God’s Law” and the witchcraft required to know the future, like what someone will say on the floor of the House of Representatives.
