More Proof of PA Homosexual Politicians Pushing Their Agenda
(Harrisburg) – The quickly closing 2008 offers additional proof that some elected and non-elected ‘public servants’ in Pennsylvania have an agenda – specifically the homosexual agenda. The American Family Association of Pennsylvania (AFA of PA), a statewide pro-family organization, noted that during this year open homosexual politicians have used their positions of power to push efforts imposing, not only the acceptance of but celebration of, the homosexual lifestyle on all of Pennsylvania.
“Stephen Glassman, open homosexual chairman of the PA Human Relations Commission, continues to use his position as he has since 2003 to push the homosexual agenda. The mission of the PA Human Relations Commission is to enforce the existing PA Human Relations Act and PA Fair Educational Opportunities Act, not push for special rights for homosexuals, bisexuals and transgenders,” Diane Gramley, President of the AFA of PA said recently.
Mr. Glassman, in his official capacity, has testified against the Marriage Protection Amendment, in favor of adding ‘actual or perceived sexual orientation and gender identity’ to the PA Human Relations Act, and convinced several local municipalities in southeastern Pennsylvania that they need to change their ordinances to give special protections to homosexuals, bisexuals and transgenders. Most recently Mr. Glassman testified before the Allegheny County Committee on Government Reform in favor of creating a county-wide Human Relations Commission and a human rights ordinance with ‘sexual orientation and gender identity’ language. Glassman continues to use his chairmanship as a bully pulpit to push the homosexual agenda.
During the first half of 2008, newly elected open homosexual Pittsburgh Council member, Bruce Kraus, wrote, introduced and got passed a domestic partner registry. On April 10 Mr. Kraus testified against the Marriage Protection Amendment during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing in Pittsburgh.
During the summer Harrisburg Council Vice President Dan Miller proposed a domestic partner registry for the City of Harrisburg. The registry passed on December 22nd. Dan Miller, an open homosexual man, spoke at the November Harrisburg rally opposing passage of California’s Proposition 8 – the Marriage Protection Amendment. On December 10th Dan Miller announced he will run for the City Controller office.
Even though Mr. Miller was fired in 1990 supposedly for being ‘gay,’ it apparently has not hurt his business or political career. Nor has the ‘sexual orientation’ of Stephen Glassman and Bruce Kraus hurt their political careers. Where is the discrimination they claim?
“The values and beliefs of the majority of Pennsylvanians are under attack as increasingly we see homosexual activists who are elected or confirmed by the Senate, as in the case of Mr. Glassman, work not for the good of the Commonwealth but to push an agenda to validate the lifestyle of less than 3 percent of the population,” further noted Gramley.
