Montgomery County Voters Disenfranchised - A New Follow-Up

The Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD) as it currently stands is ineffective and in many instances, supports organizations which do not necessarily support Catholic teaching. It must be shut down and reorganized. Please boycott the CCHD. Read more here.


As many of you know, the Montogmery County Council (MD) rammed thru a bill dealing with those with gender identity issues. A number of signatures were obtained and the measure was put on the ballot to be decided in November. A number of gay and lesbian groups (who claim that they are the most open minded and liberal thinking people) fought to have it thrown off the ballot on technicalities and were successful. Thereby, they disinfranchied almost a million voters.

Note that these same "liberal, open-minded" groups seems to tell us that the majority of residents were on their side. If so, then they should have let it remain to prove themselves correct. Maybe they knew, like the County Council, that they did not have the support of the majority of residents and had to force it on the citizens. I think they were very scared they were going to lose!

Well, it seems that the matter is back in court. (HOORAY!) According to the slightly incorrect article in the Montgomery County Gazette, the Alliance Defense Fund, a Christian legal group based in Scottsdale, Ariz., also is asking the Montgomery County Circuit Court to grant a temporary restraining order voiding the law,

Who knows, maybe the voters will get their say.
