How DARE A Politician Have Morals!!
Lesbos in the attack mode

Here's a bit of a rather interesting article from The California Catholic Daily; (Emphasis mine) Unqualified “on religious grounds”
Lesbians say popular ex-NBA star unfit to be mayor of Sacramento because his faith teaches that same-sex marriage is immoral

According to homosexual activists in Sacramento, mayoral candidate and former NBA basketball star Kevin Johnson – considered by many political observers as having a good chance at unseating incumbent Mayor Heather Fargo -- has suddenly become unfit for office. The reason for his abrupt disqualification?
Johnson opposes same-sex marriage.

Toward the end of a forum for mayoral candidates on Wednesday, May 7, each candidate was asked to give a yes or no answer to the question, “Do you support gay marriage?” Of the seven candidates, all answered yes, except for Johnson, who said:
“I believe marriage is between a man and a woman.”

Much to his surprise, Johnson’s response galvanized pro-homosexual political activists into action overnight. They called a press conference the next day, Thursday, May 8, to denounce Johnson. “It hit me like a brick,” Gretchen Bender, a member of the county Board of Education and the first openly lesbian candidate ever elected to public office in Sacramento County, told the May 9 Sacramento Bee. "I've been working with Kevin on this issue. But, based on that comment at the forum, I now think he is acting on religious grounds, and he is not ready to lead this city." Six other lesbians involved in Sacramento politics joined Bender at the press conference.

Johnson, 42, played for 12 seasons in the NBA before returning to Sacramento to start a non-profit neighborhood agency whose purpose is to revitalize a rundown neighborhood and provide better educational opportunities for underprivileged youth.

Johnson, “a born-again Christian,” said his position on homosexual marriage is based on his religious beliefs. His campaign issued a statement following Bender’s press conference rejecting the suggestion that opposition to same-sex marriage is the same as prejudice against homosexuals. “I fully support and will defend the present laws of California recognizing the rights and obligations of same-sex couples in civil unions,” he said in the prepared statement. “I also support equal benefits such as insurance and leave for same-sex couples. The issue of marriage is presently before the California Supreme Court, and I will uphold the law as the court makes its decision. I have never tolerated discrimination or harassment of any kind, and will continue to be vigilant in those efforts.”

Bender, however, was unmoved by Johnson’s statement. "He's giving a political answer to a moral question," she told the Bee.
Think about this, fellow Bloglodytes... what does Sacramento translate to in English?

Anyhow, I may not agree with Johnson concerning so-called "civil unions", but at least he has the 'nads to stand up to the dykes. Maybe that's the problem. Or maybe they just don't like his last name. Sheesh... could you imagine the uproar if he was from Johnson City, Tennessee? The dykes would lose their minds.

But then again... if all that were true, you could bet that sure as hell, he's get The Rear Guard in the Elton John Brigade vote.

It doesn't take much to get the homofascists upset. All one has to do is oppose them. The swiftbutt veterans just can't stand the thought of people having their loyalty to something other than the state, and having anything get in their way of fornicating. These freaks are going to go after him, but as long as he stands firm against the bull-dyke orcs he'll win.

While I suspect that the article is simply being imprecise in terminology, I do wonder if they (the lesbians) really think that he should be disqualified. As in, not being allowed to run as with a non-resident or someone too young for the office. Again, chances are it is simply rhetoric but I certainly would not put it past them to try to actually claim a religious disqualification.

The funny thing is that liberal activists of all stripes jump up and down for getting more people to vote and being democratic when it serves them but seem to have little problem pulling the plug on democracy and the will of the people by using the courts as soon as the wind changes and blows against them.

Not for much longer. Pretty soon some butch carpetmuncher will have them mounted on a wall.

I knew Kevin really well in high school and college. He's a really good guy who somehow graduated from Cal and kept his moral compass. His St. Hope Academy in Sacto. has done great work.

I hope he stays strong in the face of all of the pressure. Sacramento is just a tad behind SF and Long Beach in gay political influence; he is now firmly in the crosshairs.
