Sam Adams: Open for bussiness... for gays

From Sam's blog

Our office is considering asking City Council to join 13 or so other cities and counties in enacting an Equal Benefits Ordinance...

The EBO prohibits the City from entering into certain contracts or leases with an employer that discriminates in the provision of benefits between employees with domestic partners and employees with spouses. In other words, the City can't do business with a company that does not offer the same benefits to their employees with domestic partners as they do to their employees with domestic partners.

You know what, just do it Sam. Get it over with. We've all watched Portland become a haven for panhandlers, drug addicts, homeless teens and riots. You people are killing yourselves slowly by suffocating any scintilla of capitalism or free enterprise. (agressive panhandling is not free enterprise)

So please, convince the last remaining Americans in Portland to leave, rename yourselves the Netherlands-lite, and simply fence yourselves off. You can even outlaw cars. And meat.

It will be like a giant commune where everyone gets along. Well, not the drug addicts who will be stealing from you, but everyone else. Oh, not the homeless because they expect you to take care of them, but everyone else. And maybe not the gays because they are never satisfied with their "equality" so they will probably start calling you bigots unless you actually convert to homosexuality. And I'm not sure what you guys are going to do for food or money... but other than all that, it's going to be great!

Or you could come back to planet earth and realize that using governments bully pulpit to force acceptance of homosexuality is facistic and just drop this stupid idea. It's really up to you.

That contract basis has to be illegal. It creates a religous and political bias in contracting. This will be yet another law suit the tax payers provide the funding for the ACLU to go out an fight.

uuuuuuuhhhh...does anyone really care????

I care. Why should the city say that our tax dollars can only go to companies that have signed up with the gay agenda?

Like it or not, government spends a lot of money and they hand out some big contracts. Either we allow all private enterprises to be in the running for those contracts or we limit the competition to the select few who provide domestic benefits.

How cold you make the judgement that gays are "never satisfied with their 'equality'" if they've never had it?

Good point, Kaelri.

Let's see...I'm free to get married or not, and so are they.

I can drive a car, vote, rent or buy a house, own weapons, take piano lessons, water the lawn - and so can they.

In other words, we are substantively equal - except that they are a bit more equal. They get special rules based purely upon their lifestyle.

Homosexual equality: All the rights of the heterosexual with a little extra feeling in your a**!
hmm... Every time I hear about business restrictions in portland, I think of all the legitimate business in town that are getting it just like that. Stay out of my a**!

Right, could these anonymous posters please choose names for themselves? I understand your desire for privacy in this company but it gets confusing when there're more than one of you...

This guy is something else.....probably never leaves his house.

Can someone please show a link to any study that demonstrates how offering benefits to families without discriminating causes homelessness and drug addiction?

I didn't think so.
