An openly gay Pennsylvania state lawmaker wants the Legislature to censure an archconservative colleague who prevented him from making floor remarks after the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling.
Philadelphia Representative Brian Sims asked the chamber to reprimand Representative Daryl Metcalfe at the close of session Thursday because of an interview Metcalfe gave to explain why he exercised his right to prevent those floor remarks.
Metcalfe told WHYY-FM that Sims' comments would have been "open rebellion against God's law." Members have the right under House rules to veto another's remarks under "unanimous consent." House Speaker Sam Smith told Sims the procedure would be through the Ethics Committee or by seeking a resolution.
Sims says he plans to pursue it. In a post-session interview Thursday, Metcalfe stood by his earlier remarks.
