A number of Vancouver taxpayers are furious that they are being forced to foot the bill for a homosexual activist who is a city councillor to travel to Sochi not for the Olympics, but to lobby the International Olympic Committee (IOC) to include sexual orientation in its charter.
Were not there for the Olympics, Councillor and Deputy Mayor Tim Stevenson told the Globe and Mail on Tuesday, a day after his departure. In fact, the Olympic Games open on the 7th and we come back on the 9th. I want the IOC to have a constitutional change in their charter so that sexual orientation is included in their charter.
Stevenson, an ordained minister in the pro-homosexual United Church of Canada (UCC) who is married to UCC gay minister Gary Paterson, will meet with representatives of the IOC, the Russian Orthodox Church, and international media to criticize Russias recent laws protecting children from homosexual propaganda, laws construed by many Westerners as anti-gay.
Stevenson will also petition the IOC that future bids to host Olympic games only be granted to cities that promise special Pride Houses for gay and lesbian athletes.
Stevenson is traveling with lesbian Maureen Douglas, a former Vancouver Winter Games official.
Vancouver city council voted unanimously in December to fund the Stevenson and Douglas trip to Sochi. The motion was brought forward by Mayor Gregor Robertson.

There have been gay Olympians all along. So what. Now they need special treatment? Oh that’s right. How they achieve their sexual satisfaction trumps any other Olympic qualifications. And isn’t there already an Olympic-style Gay Games?
Who says preferring anal sex doesn't pay?
$100K! Someone needs to fire their travel agent.
I’ve never seen a Pride House. Is that where lions live?
And, what they don’t understand is that it is EXACTLY activism like this that prompts Russia to have the laws they have.
More Heterophobia on display
If the voters are stupid enough to elect someone with such a severe mental disorder, they deserve the bill.
Special this and special that. pffft! Compete and worry about sex later.
I know there are those that disagree with me because Putin is the boss. This will be an all gay all the time olympics. I won’t waste a second watching any of it.
The 2024 Olympics may be in Dubai. How “special” do they want this Pride House?
