Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Bernie Sanders Campaigned at Las Vegas Anti-Gay Church

Cory Booker, Kamala Harris, and Bernie Sanders Campaigned at Las Vegas Anti-Gay Church

Democratic presidential candidates Sen. Kamala Harris, Sen. Cory Booker, and Bernie Sanders attended services and campaigned at an anti-LGBT Las Vegas Baptist church led by a pastor preaches “homosexuality is a sin and is “enough to send you to hell.”

Harris spoke at Las Vegas’ Victory Missionary Baptist Church on Sunday morning while Booker spoke on Saturday night while Sen. Bernie Sanders  held a town hall at the church last month.

The Mercury News reported that Rev. Robert E. Fowler Sr.’s and the church’s stand on homosexuality is well known and easily searchable. The Las Vegas Review-Journal covered the provocative pastor in 2017 and Fowler himself spoke publicly about the subject long before that.

In a 2013 interview Fowler stated: [W]hether you commit adultery, whether you commit fornication, whether you’re a child molester, you gossip, you lie, you cheat on your taxes, you don’t pay your tithes, things of that nature — all of that is wrapped together as sin, along with homosexuality.”

So far only Harris’ campaign has released a statement saying that the California lawmaker’s “support and advocacy for LGBTQ equality has been unwavering throughout her career. She will continue to visit houses of worship across the country to address congregants about the pressing issues we face as a nation.”

CA Atty Gen Kamilla Harris: Latest Attempt to Stop Gay Marriage Has “no likelihood of success”

Kamala Harris

California Attorney General Kamala Harris has come out swinging after yet another brief opposing efforts to halt marriages of gay and lesbian couples in California has been filed ,  The lawsuits which are nothing more than last ditch efforts by anti-gay bigots in Californiawas  filed a San Diego Clerk named Ernest J. Dronenburg who does not want to marry same-sex couples.

On Friday, Dronenberg  filed two requests with the California Supreme Court, similar to complaints filed by the Prop. 8 Proponents the week before. One seeks to immediately stop marriages in California, the other seeks to limit the scope of the federal court decision that ruled Prop. 8 unconstitutional.

Attorney General Harris’s office says the California Supreme Court should deny the request “because [the] petitioner [County Clerk Dronenberg] has no likelihood of success on the merits.”

On Friday, the San Diego County Clerk filed two requests with the California Supreme Court, similar to complaints filed by the Prop. 8 Proponents the week before. One seeks to immediately stop marriages in California, the other seeks to limit the scope of the historic federal court decision that ruled Prop. 8 unconstitutional.

In response to the desperate last ditch filings, Harris issued a strong statement late Friday:

“The filing offers no new arguments that could deny same-sex couples their constitutionally protected civil rights. The federal injunction is still in effect, and it requires all 58 counties to perform same-sex marriages. No exceptions.

The San Diego County Board of Supervisors is also distancing themselves from Dronenberg’s lawsuit .

Board Supervisor Greg Cox, released the following statement:

“The County Clerk has acted independently on this matter. No one else from the County was consulted or had any part of this court action, including the Board of Supervisors. The County’s position is and always has been that we, the County, will follow applicable law with regards to same sex marriage.”
