MARYLAND GROUP GETS NEEDED SIGNATURES FOR REFERENDUM!
"GAYS" FILE LAWSUIT IN RETALIATION

OVERVIEW:

--Maryland's "gay rights" law has been stopped, pending a vote in the 2002
general election. The "Take Back Maryland Coalition" and the Family Protection Lobby amassed the signatures needed to place the referendum on the November 2002 ballot. The successful petition stopped scheduled implementation of the law. (See http://www.takebackmaryland.org and http://www.prayeralert.org/alertarchives/alert-05-01-05.html).

--Supporters of the homosexual anti-discrimination law have filed suit in a Maryland Circuit Court in an effort to overturn the state's official certification of 47,539 registered voters who signed the petition. Homosexual activists, backed by the ACLU, argue that signers of the petition did not understand what they were endorsing.

--Organizers of the referendum effort have said they will ask U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft to investigate "terrorist threats and attacks" directed at pro-referendum workers.

ENDA REINTRODUCED IN U.S. SENATE

--Senator Edward Kennedy (D-MA) has reintroduced the Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), in the Senate. ENDA would put "sexual orientation" on the same plane with race and religion in respect to penalties for discrimination in the hiring of employees.

--In 1996, ENDA failed to pass the Senate by just one vote. With a Democrat-dominated Senate, Kennedy hopes to pass ENDA this year. It will be up to the House of Representatives to stop it.

--Thus far 40 Senators have added their names as co-sponsors. One hundred and eighty members of the House of Representatives are cosponsors to the companion House bill.

--Of Americans surveyed in a June Gallup Poll, 85% said they favored equal employment opportunity for "gay men and women."

Over the last two decades, homosexual and lesbian activists have been extremely successful in advancing their "gay rights" agenda across America, far more than Bible-believing Americans have been in resisting that agenda. God's people will pay a very heavy price if we fail to stop the advance of the evil homosexual agenda.

Please Join Us in Believing, Prayer:

--Heavenly Father, thank you for raising up groups like "Take Back Maryland" & the Family Protection Lobby, to lead the charge against evil in their state. Crush this frivolous lawsuit. May this Maryland version of ENDA be defeated at the polls in November 2002 (Rom 12:6-9; 2 Th 3:1-2; 1 Tim 5:17; Heb 13:7).

--Cause Ted Kennedy's pro-homosexual ENDA to FAIL in both the House & Senate. Let this pro-homosexual effort BACKFIRE and then USE it to STRENGTHEN America's commitment to the Your Divine order for men, women, boys, girls and families. In Jesus' Name. Amen (Gen 1:27-28a; Lev 18:22; 1 Kg 14:24; Mt 19:4-6; Rom 1:26-27).
