Skip to comments.Ballot drive to bar LGBTQ discrimination begins in Michigan
Posted on 01/07/2020 5:50:35 PM PST by Olog-hai
A group launched a 2020 ballot initiative Tuesday to expand Michigans civil rights law to include anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people, a step that would put the issue to voters if the Republican-led Legislature does not pass the measure.
Fair and Equal Michigan, a committee backed by business, political and philanthropic leaders, submitted petition language to the Board of State Canvassers. Once it is approved, the group will have until late May to collect the roughly 340,000 valid voter signatures needed to place the initiated bill before lawmakers.
If legislators do not adopt the legislation similar bills have long stalled in the Legislature the initiative would go to a statewide vote in November. [ ]
Executives at several major Michigan corporations DTE Energy, Consumers Energy, Herman Miller, Whirlpool and Dow and California-based Apple issued statements supporting the initiative. Also backing it were leaders of the Michigan AFL-CIO, the NAACPs Detroit branch, and current and former political figures such as ex-U.S. Rep. Joe Schwarz, a Republican, and Lansing Mayor Andy Schor, a Democrat.

Michigan may be overdue for a “Sodom and Gomorrah” . . . another reason to flee the state.
I’m sorry, I choose not to enable the mentally ill.
Have a nice day.

Gender dysphoria is STILL on the list of recognized mental diseases and syndromes.
The way they keep adding letters to define their expanding deviance, there will be no end to what cant be discriminated against. This will not end well. Nobody really wants these people around, they are just too woke to admit the tyranny of the freaks. Im not from Michigan, but Id vote no on this.
The rats have perfected using high rat turnout ballot initiatives. In Michigan in 18 there were 4 on the November ballot . As a result they flipped the Governor, The SOS and put a Lesbian activist as AG. So now we have this. The republican could have gotten these onto the August primaries ballot but as is often the case the Republicans brought marshmallows to a gunfight. They are getting ready to do it again. Trump carried Mi by 10,000 votes and it only held because we had an R SOS, not anymore.
Any bills for normal people?
If this passes a pervert will sue everyone in sight if he/she/it is denied a job,an apartment,a mortgage or a winning lottery ticket.
This issue is purposely convoluted by the left, to deceive voters and average people.
Polls are all over the place, depending on the wording used. Overall, people will tend to oppose discrimination. But ask them if they think a merchant should be forced to violate his long-held religious beliefs, and the polls swing wildly in the other direction.
How can we tell if they’re LGBTQ?
They all look so normal it’s hard to tell.
Purple short hair and metal all over their face.
Ask the Islamist community of Dearbornistahn where all of their homosexuals are.
>>Anything that isn’t monogamous cisgendered heteronormative will be shielded. But breeders and normals can be scored by queer radicals without charges.
It’s very simple, you. Michigan mental midgets ... IF y’all ain’t qualified, you don’t make the cut!
IF you don’t fit the job, you don’t fit!
Is it cleared by Sharia?
Maybe Michigan will be the new homosexual capital of the country.
They WILL be invisible for the winters there but that's okay.
But, they can gather together and celebrate their homosexuality during the long, hot summer: July 1-5.
How do you prove you are ? This week. How about next
Corporate America has thrown in with our enemies.
I no longer see any reason to come to their defense. Let Bernie and AOC pick their pockets. They have it coming.
Infiltrate and gain control of big business.The only pockets they intend to pick are ours.
