They Never Quit so We Can’t Either!

URGENT! Leftists Make Backdoor Attempt to Change the Law and Circumvent the Will of the People

LGBT rights fight goes to Michigan commission




From our friends at RightMI.com

“They Never Quit”

Currently, the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act (also known as Public Act 453 of 1976) prohibits discrimination on the basis of “religion, race, color, national origin, age, sex, height, weight, familial status, or marital status” in employment, housing, education and access to public accommodations.

The Michigan ACLU is arguing that the definition of sex should now include all the different groups in the  LGBTQ community. They are urging the Commission to make an “interpretive statement” saying as much. This, of course, flies in the face of all natural law and all the laws of our Creator. It is also a clear violation of the Michigan Constitution and the statute that created the commission.

No Christian businessman or even Christian school or church would be exempt from potential prosecution for “discriminating” against someone whose lifestyle is in direct contradiction to the Bible. Clearly, the commission has no authority to do what they’re contemplating. At the very least, this would create confusion and fear in the hearts of God’s people (or simple traditionalists) about potential lawsuits if the commission is allowed to make such a statement.

However, because the commission is lacking such authority is no guarantee that they will not act upon the carefully planned legal exercises of the far left.  Consider the slippery slope of applying immutable standard to behaviorally conditional status insofar as legal protections can be offered?

Discrimination of any kind would be made illegal.  And while some might celebrate such a notion, these doors once opened can only be abused.  Bakers refusing to subject their beliefs to apostasy is small fry compared to the juggernaut of a whole new aggrieved and disabused class that all of a sudden has legal power.  Consider the craziest person you have ever been able to carefully avoid by not renting, hiring, or even acknowledging.

Perpetual Torment, thy name is the mentally ill.

Attorneys Dave Kallman and William Wagner have written a brief arguing that what the Commission is contemplating is unconstitutional and unlawful. They will be at the upcoming commission meeting on September 18. Understand that the LGBTQ community will also be represented there.



From Jeff Johnston:


Your urgent assistance is needed on MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 18th to help stop the Michigan Civil RightsScreen Shot 2017-09-15 at 8.21.56 PM Commission (MCRC) from caving in to a back-door attempt by LGBT groups and the ACLU to add “sexual identity and gender identity” (SOGI) to Michigan’s Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act (ELCRA). If the ACLU and its allies are successful, Christians in Michigan will be subject to the same attacks that we have seen take place in other states that have adopted similar language, simply for living their lives consistently with their Christian faith. We must work together to stop this attempt to illegally alter the meaning of the ELCRA without the consent of the people and our elected representatives.

Please consider attending the MCRC hearing in Lansing on Monday, September 18th at 4 p.m. to respectfully tell the commissioners that they have no right to alter the plain meaning of the ELCRA, and to warn them of the attacks against Christians that are certain to follow should they do so. Those speaking will have approximately 3 minutes to speak. The ACLU and its allies will try to pack the room with pro-LGBT speakers in order to sway the outcome (the event has already been moved from the MCRC HQ to the Lansing Center to accommodate larger crowds).

Come and let your voice be heard! Christian should (and do) have the right to live out their faith without fear of losing their businesses and livelihood.


Date: September 18, 2017
Time: 4:00 p.m.
Lansing Center
333 W. MI Ave.
Ballroom #1
Lansing, MI


CONTACT Your state representatives and state senators to let them know, in no uncertain terms, that they need to publicly oppose this power grab by the MCRC.
