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.

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.
