NYC DISCRIMINATES AGAINST JEWS, CATHOLICS, AND SALVATION ARMY
WMCA-NY ^ | 6.29.2004 | McCullough

Posted on 06/29/2004 1:25:12 PM PDT by KMC1

NEW YORK - Late on Monday the NYC City Council overrode a veto from Mayor Michael Bloomberg forcing NYC to abandon doing any business with organizations that do not offer benefits to partners of same sex couples.

This move from the city council calls into question the future of relationships with organizations like Jewish Charities, Catholic Charities, and the Salvation Army. These organizations - all faith based - have religious/doctrinal reasons for not promoting homosexual relationships and their record of public good was proven long ago.

Law professor Jonathon Turley from the George Washington University Law School told the "Kevin McCullough Show" in New York today that a possible response could be for President Bush's "Faith Based Initiatives" task force to issue a recommendation of cutting off all funding to New York City unless they remove the limitation on who the city can do business with.

How has this perverted minority managed to scare the pants off so many organizations like this? How was the NYC Council forced to bend over and grab it's knees?

Good! No need to do business with Bloombery and his cronies.

"Homosexual unions are totally lacking in the biological and anthropological elements of marriage and family which would be the basis, on the level of reason, for granting them legal recognition. Such unions are not able to contribute in a proper way to the procreation and survival of the human race. The possibility of using recently discovered methods of artificial reproduction, beyond involving a grave lack of respect for human dignity,(15) does nothing to alter this inadequacy."

CONSIDERATIONS REGARDING PROPOSALS TO GIVE LEGAL RECOGNITION TO UNIONS BETWEEN HOMOSEXUAL PERSONS

Catholic Ping - let me know if you want on/off this list

The City Council essentially means "We don't care about your religious beliefs they are wrong and mean spirited. You will conform and honor the sodomites or be done away with".

You got me. Less than 5% of the population is dictating what the rest of us can do.

It's idiocy.

It wasn't forced at all; it enthusiastically volunteered to assume the position.

This may not be as far-fetched as it sounds, since even a RINO like Bloomberg went to great lengths to veto this law. The loss of Federal funding would be a mighty stick for him to wield in an attempt to get the NYC Council to acquiesce.

And when you consider that Bloomberg will play a prominent role at the GOP convention in New York, you can imagine how the GOP would love to play this up in the heat of the presidential campaign.

ROTFL

IMHO the perverted minority you speak of IS the NYC Council.

These groups need to sue on the basis of discrimination. They have the legal "high ground".

The SC said the Boy Scouts had that right, to select it's members, that should not be a basis for others to discriminate against them.

We need some "good guy" lawyers.

I'm confused by your post - did you miss this: "NYC City Council overrode a veto from Mayor Michael Bloomberg...".

There are plenty of reasons to hate NY (the Yankees are near the top of the list, BTW), and Bloomberg isn't exactly the greatest. But you can't blame this on him.

Perhaps the Salvation Army and the other organizations shouldn't seek government money anyway. If they become dependent on government money, their integrity might be compromised. Also, it isn't exactly charity when they spend taxpayer money.

Several years ago, a lesbian was fired by a Baptist charitable agency in Louisville, Kentucky. The agency acknowledged that she was fired for that reason. This charity received city money. This had an unfortunate consequence: it undercut the arguments of local pro-family groups that homosexuals do not need "special rights" -- and an ordinance protecting homosexuals against discrimination in employment was soon passed in Louisville.

I'm no fan of Bloomberg, but the article said, "Late on Monday the NYC City Council overrode a veto from Mayor Michael Bloomberg ..."

We have the City Council to thank for this one.

Aren't funds cut off to state and public schools that discriminate?

The solution is simple. The Catholics, the Jews, and the Salvation Army and their charities should refrain for three months from doing any other than essential business inside the five boroughs of New York. They should simply tell those who need help to ask their City Council members for that help. It won't take much more than three weeks before the City Council members change their minds.

Homosexual Agenda Ping - I "Heart" NY???? I don't think so. Discrimination is allowable for me but not for thee, I think that's the way the song goes.

So the sodomites and their assistants in government, academia, beaurocracies of all kinds, foundations, and institutions want to beat us into submission.

(Sorry for the word "sodomite", it just snuck out and won't delete itself. I won't do it again.)

It's just fine to hate religious people - look, they included Jews too! In fact, hatred of religious people - those who take their holy books and teachings seriously - is considered a virtue by the leftists and homosexual agenda types.

But to look askance at a homosexual, or not want one around your kids, or you don't want to pay for their "partner's" health insurance? Such a criminal act of hate thought deserves the worst punishment.

Let me know if anyone wants on/off this pinglist.

How? Simple.
  1. Start training early. Teach kindergarten children accept that Heather having two mommies is perfectly normal and acceptable.
  2. Demonize anyone who disagrees. Anybody identify with this one?
  3. Insert it into the culture. First do it in risque movies, comedy routines and sit-coms, then slowly move until it's mainstream

Actually I like the terms "sodomite" and "pederast" since they are merely descriptive terms of what homosexuals do, and that is the only thing that makes them different from anyone else. And funny thing, what they *do* is precisely what homosexuals haven't wanted anyone to know about. They have invented a whole mystique of "special identity" which is as bogus as a 3 dollar bill. All they need to do to stop being "homosexuals" is to stop performing same sex sodomy and pederasty.

Voila, problem solved. And if they stop the practices, the desires will gradually change as well, as long as that is their goal.

Who hasn't had a desire pop into the mind that was gross, evil, wrong, or just plain stupid? A desire that one has to toss into the trash or ignore?

I don't use the term "sodomite" so as not to turn off lurkers or other fence sitters, I want them to be able to read my words and the articles with an open mind.
