I stand with this brave woman. I hope others do. God bless her! There should be more like her.

They want to be called “Gay.” Unfortunately, they have taken a once beautiful word and corrupted it.

Homosexuals have won the right to corrupt our children in our schools. They have won the right to corrupt our military. I wonder what parents now say to their children when they see two “Gay” officers dancing on the floor of the officer’s club making out since they have no shame? Gov. Jerry Brown of California has just signed a bill for their public schools to give lessons about Gays and Lesbians in their social studies. See:

I once saw a video of a Gay Parade (Gay Pride) in San Francisco. Thoroughly sickening, and Nancy Pelosi has lead this “Gay Pride” parade. See: Gay Pride and Bare Asses

A word of warning. It may prove offensive to some – but it is factual.

Let’s not forget that Nancy Pelosi had promised to lead the most ethical Congress ever! LOL!!!!

Not only are we to accept their perverse way of achieving sexual satisfaction, we are to celebrate it.

Just as they do not want our morals imposed upon their lives, we should not have their immorality imposed upon us.

I realize that even by writing my thoughts down, by being out spoken, it could be very dangerous to me, just as it is dangerous when I write in support of my Serbian brothers and sisters.

As someone close to me once said, “The way this country is going, God is going to owe an apology to Sodom and Gomorrah!”

New York town clerk quits over gay marriage licenses

HUDSON, New York (Reuters) – A town clerk in western New York has resigned to avoid being forced to sign marriage licenses for gay and lesbian couples, citing religious objections to same-sex marriage.

Laura Fotusky, the town clerk in Barker, New York, said in her resignation letter that she will step down on July 21, three days before New York becomes the sixth and largest state to allow gay nuptials.

Governor Andrew Cuomo signed the same sex marriage law last month after the bill narrowly passed the Republican-led state Senate. Its approval in New York is seen as a catalyst for gay marriage elsewhere as well as helping push the issue to the forefront nationally ahead of the 2012 elections.

Much of the debate in New York focused on the scope of protections for those opposed to same-sex marriage. The new law exempts religious groups from performing same-sex marriages but does not extend those protections to individuals, including government employees.

Fotusky was not immediately available for comment, but in her letter, dated July 11, she said she believes the Bible takes precedence over man-made laws.

“The Bible clearly teaches that God created marriage between male and female as a divine gift that preserves families and cultures. Since I love and follow Him, I cannot put my signature on something that is against God,” she wrote.

“I would be compromising my moral conscience if I participated in the licensing procedure,” she wrote.

Cuomo, who had made the legalization of same-sex marriage a top priority this year, told reporters on Tuesday that he agreed with Fotusky’s decision to resign because government workers have a responsibility to enforce the law.

“When you enforce the laws of the state, you don’t get to pick and choose the laws,” Cuomo said.
