“THE YEARS WITHOUT a U.S. PRESDENT, 2008 -2012”
Three pieces of legislation pending in Michigan are causing a lot of controversy on both sides of the debate over “special rights” for people who are f a g.
One is HB 5039, sponsored by Republican state Rep. Tom McMillin. The bill, which is currently pending in the House Judiciary Committee, would repeal a perverted Kalamazoo city ordinance adopted in 2009 extending “special rights” to homosexual and transgender people in housing, employment and public accommodations. The Kalamazoo city ordinance is in direct VIOLATION of the states, “law protects people on the basis of religion” which the “perverted “special rights” for homosexuals intentionaly attacks!
Under the legislation, no city in the state would be allowed to extend perverted special protections to any groups not already covered by a state law passed in 1976, the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act. That law protects people on the basis of religion, race, color, national origin, age, sex, height, weight, familial or marital status.
“I’ve been somewhat active throughout the years in trying to stop some of these “special-rights ordinances for homosexual behavior, and noticed they’re often used to discriminate against Christians,” McMillin said. “Under 5039, the municipalities have to abide by what the state calls a protected class. This merely says the debate should be at the state level. We can’t have a patchwork of protected classes (that means) depending on which side of the street you live on, businesses have to operate differently.”
The Kalamazoo City Commission argued Monday that 5039 would take away the ability of citiesto govern themselves. McMillin said expanding “special rights” for certain groups is an improper way of amending the state civil-rights law.
“They say we’re taking away their rights, but they’re required to abide by all kinds of laws at the state level that they can’t change,” he said of the town commissions. “This is just pointing out the need for one more.”
The other two bills, HB 4770 and 4771, have already passed both chambers of the Legislature; Gov. Rick Snyder is expected to take action on them within the week. They say that state employers will only provide insurance benefits to the legal spouses and dependent children of government workers.
Earlier this year, McMillin said, the Michigan Civil Service Commission said state workers’ homosexual partners should be able to receive benefits.
