How dare them homersecktuls try to get their grievances heard by their elected reps.(Sorry. I can't carry the white trash thing any further; mostly because I can't think of enough small words to sound like one of them.)

What, exactly are the charges? The article doesn't say. Trespassing, perhaps? I wonder how a citizen can be found to be trespassing on the legislature's grounds when said citizen has paid for it. Disturbing the peace? I'm pretty sure the Constitution allows such disturbances.

Unless these folks were wearing brown belts with black shoes, I can't imagine on what grounds they will be sentenced. I sure hope they have an advocate that is not going to let this die.

The statehouse homophobes feel guilty for inciting gay people to demonstrate; so their hostility is an expression of arrogance and self-defense

This is the icing on the cake.

Throw the book at those dandy boys!

Civil Disobedience is by it's nature an intentional violation of law to make a point. This does not relive the actors from any penalties for violation of whatever law that might be. This action was hardly felonious.

If there were no cost, wherein would the heroism reside ?

Yes. Throw the book at them. Make them into heroes for the cause.
