Carolina Stompers Take On Sexual Discrimination Bill

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 12, 2007

Fasten your seat belts people, this one could get a little rough!

From the Carolina Stompers website:

What people do in the privacy of their own bedroom is their business.
But to push your sex life on others is wrong. Gay, Lesbian, and Transgender groups like Equality NC and Faith in America are doing just that. Their sales pitch is civil rights. Slavery, segregation, and denying women the right to vote was wrong and Americans have come
a long way since those days. But is the way you have sex a civil right?

Six months ago my wife and I sent an e-mail to my step father,
Democrat NC Senator Martin Nesbitt. We asked why he is sponsoring
Senate Bill 1534: Non-Discrimination in State Employment
This bill would protect state workers from discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity or expression.

“Gender identity or expression.” What does that mean? That means Martin Nesbitt is sponsoring a bill that would allow transsexuals or transvestites to teach his grandchildren and your children in drag in the public school classrooms. Teachers are state employees and in an area where weird homosexual castrations and the gay lifestyle is on the rise, this will happen if this bill is passed and there is nothing you or there employer can do about it.

You’ve read what the Stompers have had to say, now what does the other side say?

From the Equality North Carolina Website:

This bill would protect state employees from discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation, broadly defined to include gender identity or expression. It amends the State Personnel Act by adding sexual orientation to the list of protected classes for discrimination in hiring; denial of promotion, transfer or training; retaliatory demotion, reduction in force or termination; and harassment. Equality NC secured introduction of this bill by Sen. Charlie Albertson (D-Duplin) and 19 co-sponsors. This is the largest list of senators sponsoring pro-LGBT legislation in North Carolina history.

Commentary

Like the Carolina Stompers, I have a problem with the phrase “This bill would protect state employees from discrimination on the basis of their sexual orientation, broadly defined to include gender identity or expression.

So, this bill, if passed, could result in your children being taught by someone in in drag because of the “civil right” of sexual expression. Tell me this isn’t so.

The U.S. Supreme Court has laid down three requirements for a group to receive protected status:

  1. a shared immutable characteristic;
  2. economic deprivation; and
  3. a history of political powerlessness.

I think we can all agree that the subjects of this legislation do not share these characteristics.

More details: Special Rights for Homosexuals

This is all part of a Progressive Agenda that includes dividing people based upon a Group Identity Politics, that threatens to undermine the very things America was founded upon.

Don’t let this happen. Call your state representative and ask that they not support the creation of a new special class of separate, but equal people.

A Global Temperature Chart Not in Al Gore’s Movie

Posted by Thunder Pig on November 12, 2007

So, you think today’s temperatures are out of the ordinary?

Nobel Laureate Al Gore does, and strongly made the case in his schlockumentary “An Inconvenient Truth” with all kinds of neat slides and graphs.

Of course, despite incessant claims of a consensus concerning this premise, not everyone agrees.

In fact, climatologist Cliff Harris and meteorologist Randy Mann, who, amongst other things, run a website called Long Range Weather, have created an absolutely marvelous long-term global temperature chart that wasn’t in Gore’s movie, and every climate alarmist in the media desperately hopes you never see it:

Commentary

Forget about it, lefties…the jig is up! Or is that why you have started changing your tune to “Climate Change” instead of “Global Warming?” Because when the temperatures start to decrease, you can still blame Carbon-Dioxide? I am old enough to remember being taught in school that industrial pollution was causing a new ice age, and I feel robbed because of all those snow days I never got that I was anticipating…
