AFA of PA ACTION ALERT
Homosexual Special Rights Bill Introduced in
Today a so-called ‘non-discrimination’ bill was introduced in the State House that would give special rights to homosexuals. They deny this is a special rights bill, but since when did the sexual activity in which you engage warrant you recognition in state law? (Unless it’s illegal activity like rape, prostitution, etc.)

Additionally, if this newly introduced bill is passed it will force Christian landlords to rent to homosexuals and Christian employers to hire homosexuals . . . if it’s like the Senate version, churches are not exempt!

Introduction of ‘Anti-Discrimination’ Bill is Misleading, Pro-family Group Says
“Homosexuals are once again pulling the victim card and trying to seek the normalization of their destructive lifestyle. They have never been required to sit in the back of the bus or drink from designated water fountains. Furthermore they’ve never been denied the right to vote or considered less than human as African Americans once were. Homosexuals want special rights simply because of the sexual activity in which they engage,” noted Diane Gramley, president of the AFA of PA.
This tactic continues to follow the strategy laid out in the 1989 book After the Ball, by Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen. The authors called on those wanting to get Americans to readily accept the homosexual lifestyle to portray homosexuals as victims.
The introduction of bills which add ‘actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity’ do just that.
