Heads up Goshen Indiana, your city council is tackling this first followed closely by the Elkhart city council! Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity will be debated at the Goshen city council level at the beginning of August.
In this video, Litigation Counsel Christiana Holcomb discusses sexual orientation, gender identity ordinances, what they mean, and their effects. After you watch it, call your city council member and tell them to vote NO on any sexual orientation, gender identity law.
Several council members are mocking those who oppose this ordinance and stating none of this will happen…that it is a harmless ordinance. They are willing to put our children at risk in order to appease the lobbyists who are spending millions of dollars to pass these ordinances city by city, county-by-county, and eventually passing a statewide SOGI… all at the cost of our children and our religious freedom.
As stated by the Alliance Defending Freedom,
“To date, these ordinances have been relied on to try to force Christian bakers, photographers, and florists to create expression celebrating same-sex weddings, and a Christian-owned print shop to print shirts for a gay pride festival, even when doing so went against their deeply held beliefs. They have even been used to threaten ordained ministers with jail time if they were unwilling to perform same-sex wedding ceremonies.
The threats these ordinances pose will not forever remain in the for-profit sector, however. In fact, these ordinances are already spilling over into the non-profit sector.
We have documented story after story where personal liberty and privacy no longer exists. I document many of these stories in my blog entitled “Mommy, there is a Man in my Bathroom”. It’s time to step up and say NO. WE do not want a SOGI passed in our town!
