Porterville, Calf. Looks Into Rescinding Gay Pride Month Proclamation

On Top Magazine reports that the city of Porterville, Calf. held a council meeting to hear opposition to the Gay Pride Month Proclamation:

Opponents of gay rights in Porterville, California are asking the city council to rescind a proclamation declaring June Gay Pride month.
The proclamation was passed two weeks ago by Mayor Virginia Gurrola.

According to ABC affiliate KFSN, more than 100 people packed a city council meeting to discuss the issue.

“There’s no hatred. No ill feelings against homosexual individuals. It is not about them, it’s about government intrusion into our private lives and a smothering attitude of political correctness,” one man told council members during the meeting.

“Under the banner of fairness and equality, I, as a heterosexual, would like a proclamation for July celebrating heterosexual pride,” a woman said.

That last woman is confused. June is also heterosexual pride month. You know, weddings — that ceremony that California banned gay people from taking part in back in 2008.
