House Government Affairs Public Hearing on HB-2881

The State Capital Building conducted a public hearing on HB-2881, a bill to control and curtail the ability of municipalities, counties and governmental entities from passing or adopting non-discrimination laws for homosexual behavior.

The 8:00 hearing saw a large  gathering of homosexual men and women, plus many of their supporters, in the House chamber. 55 of their number had one minute each to speak in opposition to HB-2881. Four men supporting HB-2881 , consisting of two pastors, FPC’s state president and WVFF’s chairman, spoke in support of the measure during their time allotted. Though very short, one minute is more than enough time to make one’s point, especially with God on our side. We could sense a peace around us which put the other speakers at a great disadvantage!

HB-2881, if passed, would have removed the ability of state municipalities, counties and state government entities to establish non-discrimination ordinances and policies favoring homosexual behavior. It would have made all prior non-discrimination ordinances null and void as well. It brought the passage of any future non-discrimination ordinances or laws back to the legislature where it rightfully should be. Granting civil rights provisions to our 134 elected Delegates, Senators and our Governor, not to a handful of elected council members or department heads, who have heard just one side of the issue and are more easily manipulated by seasoned homosexual activists.

One transsexual, a man dressed completely in women’s attire, was escorted away from the podium, after having his microphone turned off for continuing to speak long after his one minute. Other than this, the hearing proceeded respectfully by both parties during the hour. So we can talk like adults after all!

Leading up to the public hearing, the lead sponsor and some co-sponsors were emailed at least one death threat over their sponsorship of HB-2881. The email was promptly turned over to the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

 

Beckley Common Council Hears from Christian Voters Again – No EHNDA Ordinance

Round Two:

Homosexuals and their supporters were rebuffed again at Beckley Common Council’s bi-monthly meeting. 105 people listened as four speakers, representing WV conservative groups, pastors, businessmen and landlords, spoke against granting civil rights status for homosexual behavior in housing and employment. Sound common sense arguments were presented against the ordinance while one WV HRC representative spoke in favor of the ordinance with a plea to treat all people fairly.

A couple of local churCity of Beckleyches gathered petitions from their congregations and submitted 750+ of them to the council in opposition to the ordinance. The homosexuals submitted approximately 375 petitions in favor of the code change. During the meeting a speaker ask those citizens in attendance to stand in opposition to the proposed code change. 95% +/- of those in attendance stood.

The Mayor and Council listened intently to the speakers and then moved to close the meeting.A short video and excerpts made by the speakers are available from the Register-Herald newspaper, click here.

 

Praise God for the pastors, church members and general public that gave up time with family to show up in opposition to this ordinance. Our homosexual friends have vowed to continue the fight until they succeed.

WV Homosexuals Bummed Out by Beckley City Council Action

WV conservative groups, pastors, and businessmen were made aware of  a Beckley councilman’s request for the City to include “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” into the city’s Human Rights non-discrimination code last week. He did this at the request of a Beckley citizen who has a homosexual son.

City of BeckleyAnti-homosexual groups, WVFF included, started making contact with council members, Beckley pastors and   residents. The news spread fast through Raleigh County’s and Beckley’s Christian community.

Calls were made to council members to express their displeasure of the possible outcome if this request came before the Common Council. No doubt callers recalled the recent news from Houston, TX, where a lesbian mayor approved the issuance of subpoenas for sermons and emails of Houston Pastors. Five pastors had recently worked together to acquire and submit 50,000+ signatures, seeking to overturn their city’s new homosexual non-discrimination ordinance. The Beckley ordinance would have been almost identical if taken up and passed by Council members.

Praise God for the wisdom of these men and women, as prudent conservative council members, who saw through the attempt by homosexuals activists, Fairness WV, to get special rights passed in their city.

NEWS Release: Homosexual civil unions legislation introduced!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

February 16, 2012

CONTACT:  Kevin McCoy
Phone:  304-721-4636
E-mail:  info@wvfamily.org

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – A civil unions amendment has been introduced by Del. John Doyle (D-Jefferson) would afford homosexuals the same recognition and benefits reserved exclusively for heterosexual married couples. H.B. 4569 “Creating a state recognized status for civil unions was introduced by Delegate Doyle this afternoon.

West Virginia Family Foundation President Kevin McCoy commented shortly after the bills introduction.

“The comprehensive Marriage Protection Amendment offered by our organization in 2006 has remained hostage in House Constitution Revision by leadership for seven years now (HJR-106), while legislators continue to remain indifferent to the threat posed on several fronts by homosexual activists and their allies in the WV Legislature” McCoy said.

McCoy stated the amendment introduced by Del. John Doyle is not the only amendment his organization has been watching which would have the same effect to redefine marriage as only between “one man and one woman”,  allowing civil unions and domestic partner benefits.

McCoy continued “Another amendment equally as dangerous to undermine traditional marriage was introduced on February 22, 2010 in the West Virginia Senate, SJR-14. The language contained in this amendment  is but one sentence and would allow for the same type of homosexual counterfeit relationships, protecting marriage in name only”.

“The time for WV legislators to act is now before homosexual marriage is foisted upon us all” McCoy concluded.
