'Gay panic' criminal defense strategies should be curtailed by legislation, ABA House resolves

'Gay panic' criminal defense strategies should be curtailed by legislation, ABA House resolves.  I can't believe "gay panic" was a valid defense.  What if I wanted to use a redneck panic defense?  Or how about idiot panic defense?  Or maybe possible Westboro Baptist Church defense?  I hope states will ban the use of "gay panic" defenses and equally irrational defenses to irrational behavior.
