Salina Gay Pride Month

KSAL Staff - June 2, 2014 5:01 pm

As a large crowd of supporters looked on, the month of June was officially declared “LGBT Pride Month” in Salina late Monday afternoon. Salina Mayor Aaron Householter signed the proclamation at the city commission meeting, after it was read by Gary Martens from the North Central Equality Kansas Chapter.

Householter is not the first Salina Mayor to show support for this type of issue. In April of 2013 Barb Shirley, who was the mayor of Salina at the time, joined a national group of mayors who support gay marriage. Shirley was the first Kansas Mayor to join more than 350 other mayors across the country as part of “Mayors for Freedom to Marry”.

In the spring of 2012 the Salina City Commission passed an ordinance adding sexual orientation and gender identity to the list of classes protected from discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodation in the city’s anti-discrimination policy. A petition campaign brought the issue to ballot in the 2012 November general election, where it was repealed.

Several citizens Monday spoke in support of the proclamation. No one spoke against it.

Many of the supporters attending the meeting were wearing gay pride Salina shirts. Following the meeting, supporters headed out “paint Santa Fe purple”. They gathered, and walked the sculpture tour downtown.

Everyone is down on the county commissioners and the city commissioners back door the citizens of Salina. This community has put up with the mayors of Salina and their gay friends. Not one of the other commissions objected. Plus their are 5 of them on the commission. They should realize there are not enough gays in this town to get them reelected. I sure wish our current mayor would have the guts to come out of the closet.

[Hi, KSAL. Ran into the following on the web. Any reactions from anyone?]

Harvey Milk Stamped “Out” Forever !

The Obama Cabal is behind universal GAYety with a “forever” postage stamp issued by the US Pederastal Service which idolizes Harvey Milk, a Jewish pederast “attracted to boys aged 15-19,” according to WikiAnswers! (Also see Wikipedia.)
Global gaydom was even predicted by Jesus (see “days of Lot” in Luke 17 and compare with Genesis 19).
And the Hebrew prophet Zechariah (14th chapter) says that during the same end-time gay “days” ALL nations will come against Israel and fulfill the “days of Noah” at the same time (see Luke 17 again) – a short time of anti-Jewish genocide found in Zechariah 13:8 when two-thirds of all Jews will die.
In other words, when “gay days” have become universal, all hell will break loose!
The same “days” will cause worldwide human government to collapse in just a few short years! For the first time ever there won’t be enough time for anyone to attend college, have a family, enjoy retirement, etc. It will also be the last time anyone like ObabaBlackSheep will be able to keep pulling the wool over our eyes!
One final thought. The more we see gays “coming out,” the sooner Jesus will be “coming down”!
For more, Google or Yahoo “God to Same-Sexers: Hurry Up,” “Jesus Never Mentioned Homosexuality. When gays have birthdays…,” “FOR GAYS ONLY: Jesus Predicted…,” “USA – from Puritans to Impure-itans!” and “The Background Obama Can’t Cover Up.”
(PS: HOMOgenized Milk has been honored by Gov. Schwarzenaggravator as well as ObabaBlackSheep.)

I think Kansas should celebrate pride 4 times a year. Once for each season. -x- pml

Rumor has it the good old boys are going to step in and handle the gay problems like they did back when my father was growing up. Open up those closet doors.
