We Published The Following Alert Yesterday Afternoon:
Senator Dan Swecker's office just called and told me the hearing on the marriage bill has been scheduled for January 23 from 10 AM to 12 PM. The bill has not yet received a number. We will let you know on that.
The hearing will be held by the Government Operations Committee in the John A. Cherberg Building--Hearing Room 2.
We are asking for 10,000 people to show up for the hearing. More details will follow.
Another Republican has abandoned the basic principles of the Republican Party platform, which defines marriage as a union between one man and one woman, saying that there is no question the voters will approve homosexual "marriage" and voter approval will give the homosexual community "more legitimacy and authority moving forward."
The Seattle Times is reporting that the King County Council has voted to support homosexual "marriage."
The vote was 8-1, with only Kathy Lambert voting no.
The sad news is that Republican Reagan Dunn, who succeeded Rob McKenna on the King County Council, has come out strongly in support of re-defining marriage.
Joe McDermott, an openly homosexual council member, said he and his partner Michael Culpepper, were engaged late this last year and want to be "married" in Washington. They don't want to be forced to go to another state to "marry."
McDermott told the Times he wants marriage, "because it's a term that's 'universally understood' that explains a relationship in a way 'domestic partnership' does not."
Republican Dunn congratulated McDermott on his engagement calling it "great news."
Dunn said there is "no question" that voters will "approve gay marriage" and that a statewide vote would give homosexual "marriage" "more legitimacy and authority going forward."
"Erase the stigma of the behavior."
"Normalize the behavior."
Here's the tragic problem:
Reagan Dunn is running for state attorney general to once again follow Rob McKenna. So-called "moderate" Republicans are gearing up to elect him, counting on conservative people of faith to vote for him because, "He is better than Democrat Bob Ferguson." Much like McKenna is "better than Inslee."
Christians. Wake up.
