The Democratic majority of the Montgomery County Board of Commissioners fully support the illegal actions of Register of Wills Bruce Hanes and have put the county’s money behind his legal defense. In the meantime, Moody’s Investors Services has changed the county’s bond rating from stable to negative. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), an advocate for one man one woman marriage, contends that perhaps the county commissioners should be more interested in meeting their financial obligations than spending tax dollars in defending illegal actions.
As I’m sure you’ve heard, yesterday the ACLU filed a lawsuit challenging Pennsylvania’s Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA). This is something that the AFA of PA has warned about for years — without a Marriage Protection Amendment we are one lawsuit away from our DOMA being declared unconstitutional by an activist judge.
The City of Philadelphia has again given in to pressure from homosexual activists and removed their offer to the Cradle of Liberty Scout Council (COLBSA) which would have allowed the Scouts to buy their headquarters for $500,000 and, in return, COLBSA would drop its efforts to retrieve $960,000 in legal fees from the city. The city instead has taken the “advice” of homosexual activists and is appealing the 2010 court decision to the Third Circuit. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide children’s advocacy group, condemns the city’s attack on the Scouts which, in essence, is an attack on the young men of that city.
