Message for newly elected Governor Doug Ducey: be wise and resist the pressure from Tucson city leaders to envelop the State of Arizona with the radical homosexual agenda.
Tucson’s city council is demanding Gov. Ducey do just that, based on a vote by the city leaders this week:
The City Council voted unanimously to call on Governor Ducey and our state leaders to support marriage equality, equal LGBT rights, and advocate for a highly diverse statewide workforce and community. The City’s Small, Minority and Women-Owned Business Commission originated the recommendation and sent it to Mayor and Council for action yesterday.
Gov. Ducey, if you are not aware … this is a power move by a radical, fringe element of society that wants to make all of America subservient to a freedom-destroying agenda. It will elevate a tiny, tiny majority — less than two percent of Arizona’s population — to a status of privilege that will subjugate the masses to a severe loss of constitutional freedom.
The call for equal rights is a red herring that will substantially harm free speech and the free exercise of religion for all Arizonans.
The demand for a highly diverse statewide workforce and community is subterfuge for an extreme left-wing movement to silence the voice of Bible-believing Christians. As you know, Gov. Ducey, Arizona is a highly diverse state now. Any special privilege given to this tiny, vocal left-wing minority will result in policy that will be dangerously above and beyond the Constitution. Anyone who opposes this agenda on moral grounds will be severely demonized. We are already seeing the results of this agenda, as hard-working, honest and law-abiding citizens are under attack for attempting to exercise their rights of conscience. Litigious groups across America are proving that religious freedom and the homosexual agenda are not compatible.
Marriage equality has existed throughout Arizona’s history as a state since 1912. More than 1.2 million Arizona voters went to the polls to enact marriage as the union of one man and one woman. This is the bulwark of society the world over.
But then last fall one rogue federal judge in Phoenix disenfranchised those voters to throwing their votes in the trash can and, legislating improperly from the bench, unilaterally declared same-sex “marriage” legal. Our attorney general is now opposing that alarming and outrageous act of judicial over-reach. We pray that higher courts will sensibly overturn this unwise action by the federal judge and restore the social order in Arizona. We ask that you support the efforts of Attorney General Mark Brnovich and others working to strengthen the marriage culture in Arizona and to protect it from further judicial incursions.
The people who are demanding you exercise your power to destroy Arizona’s marriage culture and hand them special privileges opposed your election. They are aligned with the Democratic Party. In fact, they and other radical left-wing elements have seized control of the Democratic Party. Their vision and their agenda for Arizona and the nation will cause long-term damage if they succeed.
Resist. Protect faith and families, religious freedom, free speech. Do not allow this trojan horse to damage Arizona’s cultural landscape. Stand against this attack on common sense.
Homosexuals are not subject to job loss or discrimination in hiring in Arizona. They have always had the freedom to marry someone of the opposite sex. Just because they don’t like that choice is insufficient reason to change the law. The majority of Americans oppose their efforts to legalize same-sex “marriage.”
There is nothing lacking in diversity in Arizona today and no reason exists to elevate rules, regulations or law that damage the balance of freedom in the Grand Canyon State.
We trust you will do the right thing, Mr. Governor. Thank you.
