Today in Rochester - Protest against the Anti-gay mastermind in Michigan

Mysteriously, fanatically anti-gay state Rep McMillin 

Just like the deplorable Civil Rights Initiative backed by Doug Tietz in 2008 that was ANTI-civil rights, this bill aims to lock up our definitions of who desrves to be protected to 1976 standards -- the point? To make sure gay people are never a protected class in Michigan.
Tom McMillin - why are you so obsessed about hurting gay people?

Resident to Ask Rochester Hills Leaders to Oppose Civil Rights Bill

House Bill 5039, proposed by state Rep. Tom McMillin, would stop cities from extending special rights to gays and lesbians.
A Rochester Hills man is expected tonight to ask city leaders to help him oppose a law proposed by the city's state representative — a law he says would "roll back civil rights."
Tim Maurer has been working to urge Rochester Hills leaders to oppose House Bill 5039, a measure proposed in October by state Rep. Tom McMillin (R-Rochester Hills). The bill would prohibit municipalities from extending special rights to those not covered by the Elliott-Larsen Civil Rights Act of 1976.
The Elliott-Larsen Act protects people on the basis of religion, race, color, national origin, age, sex, weight, height, familial or marital status. But it does not offer protection on the basis of sexual orientation.

  1. Isn't this the same guy that put out anti-library millage robo calls last year? I wondered then and now, what reason he involved himself in our city's issue. I see this very single minded group of people that exists in Troy and extends outward are running the playbook in other communities too.
    Citizens everywhere, please get engaged to stop this kind of activity. It is much more difficult to right a mistake in politics, than to prevent it from happening and cleaning up the ensuing mess.
