House Bill 2007, which would allow civil unions for same-sex couples has cleared committee and was sent to the House floor today. A vote is expected early next week so now is the time to contact your representative for their support.
Watching the testimony last night was frustrating and comical. I quote one of my favorites…”The legislature should have better things than gays, lesbians, and homosexuals to discuss to spend the taxpayers money on. I think that they have all the rights that we have and I think If they want to be gays, they don’t have to prey on our children. They are going against what the bible says directly against them. Read in the first chapter of Romans in the New Testament and it’ll tell you about it.” I swear this woman has never left the ranch with the exception of her legislative appearances funded by her local church.
In fact the the demonstrations outside the capitol were funded by local churches who bussed in their entire congregations with the assistance of Scott Lively and the Oregon Citizen’s Alliance (OCA) which is being revived. Read this.
So now is the time…tell your friends, family and neighbors to contact their Representative and let’s get House Bill 2007 passed.
