MA House dragging feet on vote on "1913 Law" repeal. Calls and emails are 6-1 in favor of "no".
But homosexual lobby putting on pressure!
July 25, 2008
Leaders of the Massachusetts House of Representatives still haven't decided when - and if - they intend to vote on the repeal of the "1913 Law", despite widespread media reports that the vote would take place before the end of last week. All week the House Speaker's office has told MassResistance that they still haven't decided. It was put on Thursday's schedule to be voted on, but then mysteriously taken off. The legislative session ends July 31, so they must vote by then or else start again next year.
But after last Tuesday's disgraceful and cowardly voice vote by the Senate (so that members could avoid going on record) the public outcry has really been enflamed. Despite the efforts of the homosexual lobby engage their grassroots supporters on this issue, we've been told by one rep's office that the calls and emails into the State House have been 6-1 from against the repeal.
As you can see from Tuesday's Boston Herald . . .
Last Thursday, July 17, we sent people to personally visit every House office at the State House. They sat down with staff members and made them read our handouts (links below) explaining the facts about this issue. They got both good and bad responses. Some were very supportive, some quite hostile. But we got the message across.
Some reps, like Rep. Paul Donato (D-Medford) are clearly uncomfortable. Donato was a solid pro-family guy for years, but he's started to buckle under to pressure from the homosexual lobby. Earlier this year Donato told us that he now supports homosexual programs in the schools -- after just months before being a co-sponsor of our Parents' Rights Bill! When our people came to his office, his staff ushered them out and wouldn't look at our materials. So he's not a happy camper about voting on this.
Homosexual lobby continuing campaign of lies and propaganda
They are claiming that the 1913 law was "rooted in racial bigotry" and therefore anyone who doesn't agree with the homosexual lobby will be labeled an anti-black bigot. There's absolutely no proof of that - it's an absurd conjecture by the homosexual lobby and its supporters.
The homosexual lobby has invested a great deal of money and energy into passing this bill. As you know, for the last two years we got it stopped in committee. But they got it pulled out for the last few weeks of the session. The media is on board. It's just public pressure that will stop it now!
TAKE ACTION: YOU MUST KEEP UP THE PRESSURE
These reps must hear from everyone on this. We've set up a way you can send emails and (if you have Massachusetts address) even faxes to members of the House. They NEED to hear from you. Don't let them cause havoc in Massachusetts and around the country for the sake of a tiny special-interest group.
