TEXAS: San Antonio GOP To Vote On Resolution To Repeal LGBT Rights

Via Gay Star News:

A resolution that will be presented at the 8 January meeting of the Bexar County Republican Party’s executive committee in San Antonio is demanding the ‘repeal of our local governments’ pro-homosexual policies’. Although same-sex marriage is not legal in Texas, domestic partnership benefits were extended to same-sex couples employed by the city and county in 2011. This resolution seeks to withdraw those benefits, which it regards as ‘special rights based merely on behavior and not upon unchanging characteristics such as race, color, etc.’ The resolution urges that ‘there should be no granting of special legal entitlements or creation of special status for homosexual behavior. ‘The Republican Party of Bexar County urges the repeal of San Antonio and Bexar County Ordinances that have given special rights to homosexuals, and the repeal of city and county’s taxpayer-funded, marriage dishonoring “domestic partnership” benefits programs for government employees.’
