WHEN EX-GAYS SPEAK, LEGISLATORS LISTEN
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so!
MD -- According to CNN, the Maryland House of Delegates decided last
Friday not to vote on a bill that would legalize same-sex marriage
in the state of Maryland, a sign that the measure did not have
majority support within the overwhelmingly Democratic legislative
body. The homosexual marriage bill was sent back to committee,
effectively killing its passage for the time being.
the President of Parents and Friends of Ex-Gays & Gays (PFOX),
testified before the Maryland House Committee against the genderless
marriage bill. Hear his testimony:
Post quoted Quinlan’s testimony:
Human Rights Campaign (HRC), a homosexual lobbying organization,
advocated for gay marriage in Maryland on the grounds of “equality.”
Yet HRC opposes PFOX’s participation in the World Bank’s Community
Connections Campaign, which collects funds for charities among World
Bank employees. As an ex-gay charity, PFOX participated last
year in the campaign. In response, HRC publically called on
the World Bank to remove PFOX from its list of charities, although
numerous gay organizations also participate.
against ex-gays contradicts its claim of equality,” said Quinlan.
“Why should heterosexuals be fooled by HRC’s false commitment to
the Maryland legislature to combat sexual orientation discrimination
by passing a resolution affirming tolerance for the ex-gay
community. “An affirmative resolution would educate gay groups
on tolerance for all sexual orientations, and not just a favored
few,” said Quinlan. “Why should tolerance only be extended to
wealthy special interest groups?”
Maryland State Senator Alex Mooney introduced an amendment to the
state's expanded hate crimes bill which would have included former
homosexuals in the Maryland hate crimes law. The amendment was
defeated along party lines, with mostly Democrats voting against the
amendment that would have protected ex-gays. Yet protections
for homosexuals were included in the bill.
