Asheville Mayor Terry Bellamy signs gay-pride resolution under pressure

Bellamy opposed past initiatives

ASHEVILLE — Mayor Terry Bellamy, a past opponent of city gay-rights initiatives, signed a proclamation Tuesday honoring the Saturday Blue Ridge Pride festival after pressure on multiple fronts.

The downtown festival, according to the proclamation, “promotes unity, visibility and self-esteem among lesbians, gay men, bisexuals, transgender persons and provides an opportunity to celebrate in harmony with their allies.”

Bellamy’s move Tuesday comes after public pressure from City Councilman Bill Russell and a meeting with gay-rights activists, who as a group have been open critics of the mayor’s stances.

The proclamation also comes amid polarizing public debate on an upcoming state constitutional referendum to ban gay marriage, including now-famous comments that the city is a “cesspool of sin,” from a state senator supporting the ban.

We are losing. Politicians and private businesses cave into the pressure of the homosexual and other deviants’ threats and coercion. Churches are afraid to preach against homosexuality. Public schools are promoting it. Television shows (often billed as “family fare”) glorify it. Courts are proclaiming homosexual “marriage” a civil right. I fear it is too late to bring America back from cultural collapse.

But we can't stop trying. We have to oppose it.

The left is Stalinist. They're trying to destroy America from within as Stalin taught, so they can rebuild it in their own image. Of course, they'll fail.
The freeloaders will have no more free handouts, and won't know how to survive. They've never done anything to help any one- not even themselves.
There is no homosexual tolerance. It's all been forced on us. During a collapse, the homos will be the first to go. Forcing people to think and act contrary to their conscience creates hate.
There will be no environmentalism, because people will do what they have to do to survive.
There will be no abortions, because there will be no clinics to preform them. They'll be burnt to the ground.
Every left wing group will lose it's power, because no one will be around to cover for it. Only those who are mentally and spiritually strong will make it to the end.
America will be rebuilt, and the children will be taught to never, ever, allow another person to have power over them. They will be taught there are consequences to every action, and there are laws of nature and natures God that should never be broken again. The lefts global collapse will be "Seered, seered into their memories."
