Equality Texas Action Alert: Support Domestic Partner Benefits in San Antonio

An action alert for San Antonio residents has been issued by Equality Texas:


San Antonio City Manager Sheryl Sculley has included provision for domestic partner (DP) benefits in the City of San Antonio's operating budget. There really should be no controversy here. Unfortunately, there has been vocal opposition to the City Manager's proposal.  The San Antonio City Council will vote on the budget, and the provision for domestic partner benefits, this Thursday, September 15th.

KNOW THE FACTS

ASK THE COUNCIL TO SUPPORT THE CITY MANAGER

APPROVE THE BUDGET WITH PROVISION FOR DP BENEFITS

  1. Hmmm... "The cost of extending benefits to domestic partners... is less than one-tenth of 1 percent of the city's budget". Do homeowners want to continue paying higher property taxes to provide free health care for the uninsured? Pastor Gerald Ripley: “We believe marriage is a legally binding relationship between one man and one woman”... “a vote for domestic partner benefits is a vote against upholding the institution of marriage”. Should government enforce the views of a particular religious group? Mayor Julian Castro: “There are not going to be any second class citizens in San Antonio." Is Relationship Orientation a Requirement for Citizenship?
