is the public comment the AFA of PA sent to the PA Human Relations Commission’s in response to their efforts to redefine ‘sex’ in the PA Human Relations Act and the PA Fair Educational Opportunities Act to mean “sex stereotyping.” This is an effort to do an end run around the legislative process
Apparently Governor Wolf has given up on the legislature passing a homosexual special rights bill, so the PA Human Relations Commission is seeking to change the definition of “sex” to include “sex stereotyping.” If its proposal is approved, they will use the new criteria to conduct their investigation and simply bypass the People’s elected legislators!
Senator Lisa Baker, chairman of the Senate Labor and Industry Committee, is holding a hearing on SB 1306 which would add ‘sexual orientation and gender identity or expression’ to the PA Human Relations Act as it pertains to employment. This would force employers to allow men who think they are women to use the women’s bathroom and to dress as women. She is seeking comment beyond those who are participating in the hearing. Could you leave a comment?
Homosexual activists will be visiting State Reps and State Senators in their district offices this summer to place pressure on them to move the homosexual special rights bills forward for a vote this fall. That’s when the real pressure to get something passed will begin! Have you contacted your legislator recently?
Yesterday SB 1307, with an amendment that inserted SB 1306 into the bill, passed the Urban Affairs and Housing Committee by a 7-4 vote. All Democrats and Republican Senators Scott Wagner, Tom Killion, and Camera Bartolotta voted for opening the women’s bathrooms, locker and shower rooms to men!
It’s time for those who understand what Scripture really says about God creating male and female to speak out in opposition to these bills that will open women’s restrooms, locker and shower rooms to men who think they are women and men’s restrooms, locker and shower rooms to women who think they are men!
The push to allow men who think they are women to go into the women’s restroom, locker or shower facilities indicates how far down the path to sexual anarchy the United States has slid. Every sane person knows this is wrong and . . . dangerous!
Remember last year here in PA two Christian-owned businesses made headlines when they turned away homosexuals who wanted to get “married”? The Inne at the Abingtons in Lackawanna County turned away a lesbian couple who wanted to hold their “wedding” reception there. W.W. Bridal Boutique in Bloomsburg (Columbia County) also turned away a lesbian couple who wanted the owner to make their wedding gowns. If HB 1510 and SB 974 had been law, these Christian business owners would have been found guilty of discrimination, fined and forced to go against their deeply held religious beliefs or shut down their business. That’s where we are here in PA!
As predicted homosexual activists are using Judge Jones’ May 20th decision declaring our Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) unconstitutional to push for the passage of the very dangerous SB 300 (It’s companion bill HB 300 is also currently in the State House.) They know their greatest hope for victory this legislative session is passage in the Senate, since almost half of the Senators have signed on as co-sponsors! These bills would add “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” to the PA Human Relations Act. Homosexual activists say this law is needed to stop ‘gays’ from being evicted from their apartments and losing their jobs simply for being ‘gay,’ of course, never offering any documented proof that such is taking place.
Almost 100 legislators have signed onto bills in the State House and State Senate that would add “sexual orientation and gender identity or expression” to the PA Human Relations Act. These bi-partisan bills (HB 300 and SB 300) are very misleading and most legislators, nor the general population, understand the full impact passage of such a law would have on Pennsylvania citizens. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), in an effort to educate the sponsors of these bills, has contacted them with a simple question: “Last month Facebook added over fifty additional gender identities to their gender options. If a bill you support, HB 300/SB300, becomes law will these also be included as protected classes under the “Gender Identity or expression” component of the bill?”
