For those that believe in gay rights and equal rights for all, there is a big fight developing in El Paso Texas right now. A venomous Baptist Pastor has through his churches gathered sufficient signatures to recall the Mayor of the City of El Paso and two members of the City Council. The reason for this is that the City of El Paso had some years ago extended domestic partnership benefits. The Pastor wants all domestic partnership benefits cancelled and especially any and all "gay rights". Mayor Cooke supported domestic partnership based on common sense and progress. Cooke also cited that the main people who would be impacted were not gay, but, were individuals who were heterosexual domestic partners. To the best of his knowledge the total number of El Paso City Employees who were gay that would be impacted were (3) three. The total number impacted who were of advanced age and needing the help based on the loss of all medical benefits even in retirement were considerably more. The "good pastor" as is common does not care and is proceeding forward. The current Texas Governor could make a statement, but, based on you know what he is being quiet while a Pastor does his "dirty work". The Pastor wants any "pro gay" individuals removed from the City Council and City of El Paso Texas removed. This is one to keep an eye on.
