Eastern PA PFLAG Needs YOUR Help Today!

Today we hear from Eastern PA PFLAG President Don Kohn - our friends in Bethlehem, PA need our help!

Bethlehem, PA sits in the middle of Lehigh Valley.  Easton to the east and Allentown to the west already have anti-discrimination laws in effect that cover sexual orientation and gender identity.  Bethlehem is the last major city in PA without any anti-discrimination ordinance.  The proposed ordinance has been through committee and one session of city counsel.  They are going to vote on the ordinance on June 7, 2011.

Here is the major problem.  Amendments have been introduced that weaken the ordinance.  The major offending amendment is one that would allow any member of a religious organization to be exempt from the ordinance if it conflicted with their religious believes.  This is different from the usual religious feature that exempts only the religious organization in that it extends to all members of that faith.  The argument on the one side is that 50% of the town is Catholic.  This would allow 50% of the town to discriminate against LGBT people.

Help us. 

Please make your voice heard by clicking here and signing our petition!

If you anticipate about it why would you buy an apery if the absolute affair is what bent your eye?As I said it is appetizing but you will consistently apperceive it is a fake. I just anticipate the louis vuitton replicaadvised should get the acclaim for what they have done. There is annihilation like an aboriginal artist handbag.If you adulation top superior bags and shoes but can't allow the artist prices, again you should apperceive that a Gucci aperture stores is your best friend. As a appearance house, Gucci is able-bodied accepted for hermes replica perfecting the art of making archetypal momogram handbags that can bear the analysis of time. In the face of changing trends they accept managed to break advanced of the ambit by consistently afterlight thier designs and silhouettes while application the breeding that defines their style. Many of leather accoutrements are still hand-stiched and use the acclaimed GG bolt which we accept all appear to replica watches know and love. Despite their acclaimed history which includes abundant ups and downs, Gucci still remains chichi and able-bodied put calm as ever.
