Hamtramck, Mi., voters easily reject homosexual
ordinance in 87 percent pro-Obama district
Special â€œrightsâ€ based on homosexual behavior, cross-dressing defeated by vote of 2,903 to 2,333; all five pro-family ballot measures against homosexual agenda nationwide victorious
If the GOP or any party wants to reach minority and religious voters, it might consider the defeat of â€œgay rightsâ€ in Hamtramck, Mich. Here, Muslims and Catholics gather for meeting to defeat the Detroit suburbâ€™s â€œsexual oriention/gender identityâ€ law. The multi-ethnic coalition rejected the homosexual measure by 55-45 percent â€” even though 87 percent of Hamtramck citizens voted for Barack Obama. (Did they know Obama favors enacting a federal version of the â€œgay/transgenderâ€ law?)
Election Results from Hamtramck, Michigan:
Obama wins with 87% of vote
Hamtramck â€œGay Rightsâ€ Ordinance
Pro-family coalition defeats â€œgayâ€ agenda by 55-45%
Said Gary Glenn of American Family Association of Michigan: â€œCalifornia voted overwhelmingly Democratic and at the same time voted to constitutionally protect one-man, one-woman marriage, with minority voters overwhelmingly supporting the Marriage Protection Amendment. In Hamtramck, Michigan, a Detroit suburb, residents voted nearly 90 percent for Barack Obama, while rejecting a so-called â€œgay rightsâ€ ordinance by a 10-point margin.
â€œAs the Republican Partyâ€™s braintrust starts casting about for issues consistent with their partyâ€™s values that appeal to minorities and Democrats, perhaps theyâ€™ll choose to embrace â€” rather than keep running away from â€” the issue of stopping the threat that the homosexual activistsâ€™ political agenda poses to marriage, traditional family values and religious freedom,â€ Glenn said.
