Oregon Domestic Partnership Bill Sent To House Floor

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.

  1. 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.

    That just makes me sick. Every time I start feeling just a smidgen of understanding, try to recognize the humanity in all of us, I hear or read about one of these idiots. I am so, so sorry.

  2. well we have disney world at least.

  3. Rodger…

    Hopefully somethign works out with the legislature…still don’t know if now is the time that it will happen.

    And leave it to Spo to make light of the whole situation. HEHEHE!

  4. Thanks so much to all you Oregonians for recognizing us as real people. I’m in a 15 year relationship with a same-sex partner, and we’re here in Ohio, without any legal recognition of our partnership. It hurts. We pay taxes, vote, do volunteer community work, and keep our property in good shape, but to no avail. Since we’re both professionals nearing retirement perhaps we’ll bring our savings and nice pensions our west and support the Oregon economy and your more enlightened society. Please know that your support matters to us!
