New Law In Salt Lake City Protects Gays & Lesbians From Mormon Discrimination & Violence

Salt Lake City is now protecting their Gay and Lesbian residents from discrimination and violence promoted by the Mormon church.

The Mormon church is a key financial contributor to the discriminatory “traditional marriage” amendments being pushed across the country and are known for violent threats against our community. Recent examples include the death threats against Gay and Lesbian students at the University of Idaho Law School.

Two new laws go into effect today, April 2, defending gay rights in Salt Lake City. The ordinances will protect residents from being discriminated against based on their sexual orientation and gender identity.

The first ordinance “relates to unlawful discriminatory employment practices based on sexual orientation or gender identity.” The second ordinance “relates to unlawful discriminatory housing practices based on sexual orientation or gender identity.”

The new legislation also outlines procedures for individuals who encounter discrimination in these areas. The resolution process includes mediating and assessing fines when applicable.

Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker signed the ordinances last November following a unanimous vote by the Salt Lake City Council to adopt the laws. “The complete support of the Council on this legislation depicts the dedication our City government has to furthering our goals for a cohesive community,” said JT Martin, Council Chair.

Mayor Ralph Becker released a statement via press release yesterday. “These ordinances demonstrate our determination to foster an environment of good will and acceptance welcoming every member of the community as an integral part of our Great American City. Everyone in Salt Lake City will benefit from the protections these ordinances provide.”

City leaders believe that the new ordinances will serve as a model for other communities throughout Utah and the nation that are working to pass similar legislation.

via New laws protect gay and lesbian rights in Salt Lake City.

Wonderful that Salt Lake City is finally recognizing that all their citizens deserve protection from the violence of the Mormon church.

Survival Is Not Mandatory

The Gay Manifesto focuses on survival issues Gays and Lesbians face in a volatile and evolving world.

Gun Stud

Brew Beer

Gold is nice but if you really want financial security in the years ahead brew your own beer. Cheap home brew is a great barter item and as "sin" taxes go up the black market value will continue to increase.

Microbrewery Kit
- $ 99.99
The Coopers Brewery Microbrewery Kit is the world's best selling beer making kit for good reason. It is designed to give you everything you need to brew 6 gallons of your own high quality, completely natural, great tasting beer every time.

Report Christian Terror Activity

Report christian terror activity in your area directly to the FBI Terrorism Tips Line or call the FBI at 1-800-225-5324.

Do not contact your local law enforcement agencies. As was demonstrated with the christian klan many times local law enforcement officers are members of the terror group.

Cheap Solar Power

Gain experience with solar power. Install this inexpensive unit in your backyard or balcony. Enough power for several lights and can ever charge your laptop and phone. Small enough to take camping. Never be left in the dark!

Complete 60 Watt system for under $300. I actually use one of these kits in my guest cabin. Been providing power for two years and still going strong.

Clean Water

I have three of these water filtration bottles. One in my jeep, one in my partners truck and one in the cabin. You can fill it up from the bottom and filter water immediately by simply squeezing the bottle. Water Bottle
This little water filter kept me going last winter when my water ran dry. Pick one up and throw it in your evacuation or workout bag only $19.99. Great for filtering captured rainwater from your roof!
