Marriage Equality Reverend Under Fire

From the Advocate on line

A 50-year-old civil rights organization founded by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is seeking to oust the president of its Los Angeles chapter over his support of marriage equality in California, reports The New York Times.

The Atlanta-based Southern Christian Leadership Conference has threatened to remove the Reverend Eric Lee, who actively worked to prevent the passage of Proposition 8, the California ballot measure to ban same-sex marriage.

Lee told the Times that his work against Prop. 8 created tension with black clergy, but said he believes that banning same-sex marriage “is a clear violation of civil rights and I have to speak up on that.”

In May, Lee received a call and two subsequent letters from the national board of directors of his organization threatening him with suspension or removal. The organization has a publicly neutral stance on the issue.

The local board of directors, who confirmed Lee knowing his stance on marriage equality, stand behind the reverend and his actions.

Lee says he sees failures in the leadership of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference; he told the Times, “Dr. King would be turning over in his grave right now.”

Mass Transgender Rights and Hate Crimes Law

News from MASSResistance about a new Hate Crimes Law that if passed here will be one of the most oppressive hate crimes law ever placed in America.

On Tuesday, July 14, there will be a public hearing at the Massachusetts State House on the most extensive, oppressive, and far-reaching “transgender rights and hate crimes” bill ever seriously considered in America.

This bill forces the acceptance of “transgenderism”, cross-dressing, and other various “gender expressions” throughout virtually every part of society, under the threat of fines and jail
time for even disagreeing in public.

The bill is long and extremely comprehensive, covering a vast range of society, including schools, businesses, restaurants, government, labor unions, apartments, offices, and all public
accommodations, including any place “which is open to and accepts or solicits the patronage of the general public,” and any public area. It includes all hiring and firing and employment benefits and insurance coverage. There is no religious exemption.

Coming to a home town near you! Read the rest of the story:

Public hearing this Tuesday, July 14, on extremely oppressive “transgender rights and hate crimes” law with fines & jail terms.

I find the Christo-Fascist bullshit totally insane.  Why don’t we treat these cults  as organized hate groups like the KKK and Aryan Nation.  Tax them like any other business.  Demand they obey the same anti-discrimination laws as every other business.

Bigotry in the name of some invisible imaginary sky daddy is still hate and bigotry.

No one is born a Christian, a Muslim, a Jew.  It is purely the product of indoctrination.  Among other groups that Christians have enslaved and waged wars off genocide against are people of color and indigenous people.

Pass the hate crimes bill with no exceptions for faith based hate groups that call them selves religions.
