At last night’s City Council Meeting, Cam Hamilton reluctantly did the right thing and removed “Item #17: Exemption From California Values Act” from being placed on the agenda. Although he did so reluctantly, he did do the right thing. Thank you, Cam Hamilton.

There is a possibility this item could pop up on an agenda in the future, so please keep your eyes peeled.

For now, Porterville will continue to participate in the policies of Sanctuary with the rest of the state.

marriage-won-signIn a long-sought victory for the gay rights movement, the Supreme Court ruled on Friday that the Constitution guarantees a nationwide right to same-sex marriage.

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote the majority opinion in the 5 to 4 decision. He was joined by the court’s four more liberal justices.

Justice Kennedy said gay and lesbian couples had a fundamental right to marry.

“No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice, and family,” he wrote. “In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”

If his name rings a bell, it's probably because you've heard his organization's name--Family Research Council--listed on the Southern Poverty Law Center's list of recognized hate groups, along with groups like the National Organization for Marriage, and the Westboro Baptist Church.

The Family Research Council has time and time again fought to keep LGBTQ+ people oppressed through malicious propaganda, often disguised in religious context. They are most well-known for being strong opponents of marriage equality.

A few of their many awful quotes, retrieved from rightwingwatch.org:

"...one of the primary goals of the homosexual rights movement is to abolish all age of consent laws and to eventually recognize pedophiles as the 'prophets' of a new sexual order."

"Gaining access to children has been a long-term goal of the homosexual movement." 

"Supporters of V. Gene Robinson, the newly consecrated homosexual Episcopal bishop, claim his elevation sends 'a powerful message of love and tolerance.' However, it is not 'tolerant' to brush off opposition to the consecration of a homosexual bishop. Nor is it 'loving' to suppress evidence that homosexual behavior is a 'death-style' that is sending young people to an early grave."

With their history of such radical hate speech, we can't help but wonder why anyone would choose this man to represent a religious, Christian event.
