After a three hour contentious meeting, the Board of Commissioners of Abington Township, Montgomery County, voted 10-5 not to advance the proposed human relations ordinance.
Commissioners will be voting on this so-called ‘anti discrimination’ ordinance this evening. This is one of many municipalities in southeastern PA which have been pressured to pass these homosexual special rights ordinances.
Another municipality in southeastern Pennsylvania is considering a homosexual special rights ordinance. Why is this a special rights ordinance? What other law is passed simply based upon the sexual activity in which you engage or who you THINK you are? This has nothing to do with civil rights since such laws historically have been extended to groups which show immutable (unchangeable) characteristics, political powerlessness, and have experienced a long history of discrimination.
In Haverford Township the so-called anti-discrimination ordinance was taken off the table and reconsidered Monday night. By a vote of 5-3 with one abstention it will advance to the next step. Questions still remain unanswered. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide pro-family group, asked questions in an e-mail sent to each commissioner on November 8th and again on January 10th before the meeting.
Commissioner Holmes has indicated he will ask the Board of Commissioners to reconsider the original version of the anti-discrimination ordinance on Monday, January 10th. He nor any of the other supporters of the ordinance have answered any of the questions we posed to them in a November 8th e-mail.

On the afternoon of January 4th all members of the State House and State Senate will take their oath of office. The new Congress will be sworn in on Wednesday January 5th.
President Obama and Senator Reid are determined to ram through the START Treaty for ratification. This is a strategic nuclear arms limitation treaty between the United States and Russia that could seriously undermine our national security.
