    Bell said he supports the notion of allowing people who are threatened or abused to obtain protective orders, but he is reserving judgment on the proposed legislation until he sees the specific language. He wants to make sure that it is narrowly tailored and does not lead to a flood of protective orders for less serious reasons, such as disagreements between neighbors.

    Narrowly tailored – that usually is code for “except for teh gay”.

    Because CH Cooch has declared that LGBT people, in one of his “I am god” decisions, have little state level legal standing or legal protections in VA this change would allow gay couples who are in an abusive situation access to legal protections just like real people. CH Cooch and his fellow religious fanatics will never allow that to happen, hence the change will not happen.
