National Gay and Lesbian Task Force slams Boy Scouts of America’s reaffirmation of anti-gay policy
The National Gay and Lesbian Task Force today responded to the continuing refusal by the Boy Scouts of America to change its policy of excluding gay people. A special committee of Scouts leaders made its recommendation to reaffirm this anti-gay policy and, as a consequence, the Scouts’ national executive board reportedly will not reconsider changing its membership policy to allow gay people to serve in that organization.
This is the statement from Darlene Nipper, Deputy Executive Director, of the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force:
“Clinging to a policy of exclusion and intolerance is hardly a good lesson for our young people. Once again, officials of the Boy Scouts of America have turned their backs on a chance to demonstrate fairness, exercise sound judgment, and serve as a role model for valuing others, free of bias and prejudice. This is deeply disappointing. Discrimination is never the right policy, period.”
Harvey Milk will be honored in the same way we honor leaders such as Martin Luther King Jr.
After the tireless efforts of a group of community leaders, LGBT civil rights leader Harvey Milk will be honored in the same way we honor leaders such as Cesar Chavez and Martin Luther King Jr.,” said Dwayne Crenshaw, San Diego LGBT Pride Executive Director.
“Harvey Milk dedicated his life to leading our community in the struggle for equal rights. The unveiling of Harvey Milk Street will mark a symbolic moment in our history and a step in the right direction towards achieving the truly American value of equality,” according to Crenshaw.
NAACP Support Marriage Equality
On May 19th, the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People released a resolution supporting marriage equality.
At a meeting of the 103-year old civil rights group’s board of directors, the organization voted to support marriage equality as a continuation of its historic commitment to equal protection under the law.
“The NAACP Constitution affirmatively states our objective to ensure the “political, education, social and economic equality” of all people. Therefore, the NAACP has opposed and will continue to oppose any national, state, local policy or legislative initiative that seeks to codify discrimination or hatred into the law or to remove the Constitutional rights of LGBT citizens. We support marriage equality consistent with equal protection under the law provided under the Fourteenth Amendment of the United States Constitution. Further, we strongly affirm the religious freedoms of all people as protected by the First Amendment.”
NC voters decide to openly discriminate against their fellow gay citizens
So much for planning a vacation to North Carolina anytime soon!
NC voters decided to openly discriminate against their fellow gay citizens by passing Amendment One to their constitution, limiting legal unions to marriage only between a man and a woman and banning civil unions and domestic partnerships.
It’s a sad day in the land of Lincoln when fellow citizens once again choose to trample over other people’s civil rights.
Today, NC voters decided to ignore our nation’s Declaration of Independence that states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”
Breaking News: Court Upholds Striking Down Prop. 8
The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the August 2010 decision of the U.S. District Court in San Francisco striking down Proposition 8, the 2008 measure that stripped same-sex couples of the right to marry in California. The Court affirmed the ruling of former Chief U.S. District Judge Vaughn R. Walker that Prop 8 discriminates against same-sex couples in violation of the Equal Protection Clause of the U.S. Constitution.
The court ruled that Proposition 8 violates the Fourteenth Amendment to the Constitution because it “serves no purpose, and has no effect, other than to lessen the status and human dignity of gays and lesbians in California, and to officially reclassify their relationships and families as inferior to those of opposite-sex couples.” The court also rejected Prop 8 supporters’ argument that Judge Walker should have refused to preside over the case because he is gay and in a relationship with a man.
