Gay rights rally in Ft. Lauderdale (a photo essay)

_mg_2237



As a civil libertarian, I never understood why some people feel the need to dictate other people’s private lives, specifically in the matter of gay marriage. And especially during a time when we, as a nation, displayed our progressiveness by electing the nation’s first black president.

I know it’s a religion thing, but that is exactly why I don’t understand it. If our democracy was founded on the principles that protected those who were persecuted for their religion, why should some use their religion to deny others certain rights?

It’s not like we’re going to turn gay people straight by denying them the right to marry.

On the contrary. The recent passage of laws in Florida, California and Arizona that banned same-sex marriage prompted more than one million people across the United States to take to the streets in protest, including more than 1,000 in Fort Lauderdale.

Support our Mission

Help us build a database of bad cops

For almost 15 years, PINAC News has remained active despite continuous efforts by the government and Big Tech to shut us down by either arresting us for lawful activity or by restricting access to our readers under the pretense that we write about “social issues.”

Since we are forbidden from discussing social issues on social media, we have created forums on our site to allow us to fulfill our mission with as little restriction as possible. We welcome our readers to join our forums and support our mission by either donating, volunteering or both.

Our plan is to build a national database of bad cops obtained from public records maintained by local prosecutors. The goal is to teach our readers how to obtain these lists to ensure we cover every city, county and state in the country.

After all, the government has made it clear it will not police the police so the role falls upon us.

It will be our most ambitious project yet but it can only be done with your help.

But if we succeed, we will be able to keep innocent people out of prison.

Please make a donation below or click on side tab to learn more about our mission.
