AFA of PA ACTION ALERT
October 24, 2011
1.) Homosexual Activists Target Jenkintown — vote tonight!
2.) Two More Montgomery County Municipalities Targeted Also: Cheltenham and WhiteMarsh — More Later!
Jenkintown is the next target. Why would this small suburban town covering less than a square mile in area with a population of approximately 4,500 be targeted? It’s simply a potential feather in the cap of those trying to put pressure on the state legislature to change the PA Human Relations Act to include “sexual orientation and gender identity or expression” thus giving homosexuals, bisexuals and transgenders special rights simply because of the sexual activity in which they engage or who they think they are.
Remember there have been numerous problems in other areas where such ordinances have passed:
- The owner of a Christian photography business in New Mexico was fined $7,000 for refusing to film the commitment ceremony of a lesbian couple
- Last fall a business in Indianapolis faced eviction from a city owned building because they refused to bake cookies for a homosexual group. It was only after intense public pressure was exerted that the Indianapolis city council back away from their original eviction plans.
- Just a look south into Philadelphia will see how these ordinances negatively impact the Boy Scouts. Since 2003 Philadelphia has been trying to evict the Cradle of Liberty Scout Counsel from the headquarters they built and have maintained since 1929. Why? Because the national policy is to prohibit open homosexuals from serving as leaders or members.
- A local Kmart in Philadelphia was forced to permit a man who thinks he is a woman to use the women’s fitting room to try on an outfit.
- Under Minnesota’s sexual orientation law, a transgendered person filed suit after West Publishing, a large publisher of legal materials, requested the man stop using the women’s restroom after female employees complained that the man, who dressed like a woman, used the women’s bathroom. After several years of litigation, the employer “won” the legal case, but in the end had to pay significant amounts of money to defend this against this claim.
Tonight at 7:30 p.m. the council will be voting whether to advertise this homosexual special rights ordinance.
The meeting will be held at the Jenkintown Borough Hall,
700 Summit Avenue, Jenkintown. Remember these type ordinances have nothing to do with civil rights, but everything to do with special rights. They will discriminate against those with deeply held religious beliefs that homosexuality is wrong. Ask your council member to vote ‘NO’ on advertising this discriminatory “anti-discrimination” ordinance.
