MEETING SUDDENLY CANCELLED; NO ‘PRIDE’ PROCLAMATION AFTER ALL
The mayor of Homer was to sign an official proclamation today encouraging every business and home to fly a rainbow flag in honor of gay pride month. He was declaring June to be the month where LGBT is celebrated in Homer with flying colors.
That’s LGBTQ as in Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transgender.
But the city council meeting has suddenly been cancelled this afternoon for lack of a quorum.
There will no official Pride Month in Homer this year, as a result of the cancelled meeting. Nearly a hundred comments were submitted to the city, many of them opposed to making a formal declaration encouraging businesses to fly a rainbow flag.
Telling businesses to support LGBTQ values with a specific flag over their establishment can be experienced by conservative Christians as a form of economic bullying, because the city also has the power to hold up or deny permits, perform special surprise inspections, and pass regulations that harm your economic future if you don’t go along with the social engineering agenda.
Homer is the kind of community where if you don’t fly the rainbow flag as requested, bad things may happen to you; at the very least, you will be confronted by customers or would-be customers who will ask you why your rainbow flag isn’t flying.
The June 23 Pride Parade in Homer will take place on June 23, as scheduled, but the city council will not be meeting until July, which means the resolution dies.
