Gay and Lesbian Rights


Gay and Lesbian Rights

The following is a major issue soon to be voted upon by the City Council in my home town. I have sent my response to the Mayor and each Council member.

I do fear that it will pass and that will be just one more radical left victory over the morals, values, mores and folkways that once made us great.

You can see the issues involved in the following South Bend Tribune article.

The following is my response:

Please vote no on the proposed “human rights” ordinance before the City Council. This ordinance grants special rights, based upon sexual behaviors and life-styles, that are damaging to the traditional religious and family lifestyles of the vast majority of citizens in our area and America. It was these traditions, among other resources, that formed the bedrock of our socioculture that became the greatest in history.

America is now, and has been for some time, in steep decline. Voting yes on the ordinance in question, will accelerate that decline.

This ordinance discriminates against people of faith, employers and essential charity groups simply because they hold to the traditional values that most Hoosiers and their fellow Americans share.

These kinds of ordinances will destroy traditional groups like the Boy Scouts, the Salvation Army and Catholic Charities that are under relentless attacks by the political agendas of various secular humanist, radical left, and post-modern political action groups like the Gay and Lesbian Advocates and Defenders (GLAD). Such an ordinance is a stepping stone to governmentally mandated gay marriage.

This ordinance is radical and divisive. It also places women and children at risk by allowing people with a gender identity disorder, or simply a man who chooses to wear a dress, to enter a women’s restroom or ladies locker room.

I mean no disrespect or harm to any law-abiding gay or lesbian person. But victories for gay and lesbian political action initiatives are certain losses to our Judeo/Christian moral/value system that is now the deteriorating fabric of our historically luminescent socioculture.

This controversial ordinance has failed five times for good reasons. Please vote it down again, or I and others will do our best to vote you down.

    Across this great country of ours is a sweeping menace- an engorged liberal movement tacitly positioning their minions in various segmments of governing authority to impose their will.
    Hundreds of cities like Southbend Ind. throughout are experiencing these insidious attacks ignoring the 14th amendment of the U.S.Constitution instead legislating laws, creating a special class citizen,.impugning the basic laws of nature and morality injecting disease into the arteries of a patient that is the bulwark of liberty,justiceand freedom for all.
    Thomas Jefferson believed that governmental issues cannot and ought not be separated from moral issues.
    He was implying that Judeo Christian morality is an integral part of human behavior necessary for the well being of governmental jurisprudence.
    What is taking place in Southbend Ind. and across the nation is antithetical to the U.S.Constitution and Judeo Christian teachings.
