Mayor Roberts and the Charlotte City Council just dug in their heels.
Governor McCrory and legislative leaders were willing to do a "reset" and go back to how things were before Charlotte passed a radical LGBT-pleasing agenda. Mayor Roberts responded by standing outside the Charlotte Government complex with leaders of Equality NC, the Human Rights Campaign, and transgender groups to make the announcement, making it appear that she works for the LGBT groups instead of the citizens of Charlotte.
Governor McCrory and the General Assembly have stood strong on HB 2 and on protecting the privacy and safety of our families. But they're being tarred and feathered for standing up for principle. Mayor Jennifer Roberts, on the other hand, was unreasonable in insisting on her unconstitutional ordinance that furthers the LGBT agenda at the expense of our children.
And now, the mainstream media, that has been in the pocket of Jennifer Roberts and Roy Cooper, has started to pick off some of the legislators who voted to protect your privacy and safety. A few are now calling for repeal of HB2, even though the majority of them continue to stand strong while NCAA, ACC and big business stand with these Roy Cooper and Mayor Roberts in an attempt to take down our state. Folks, we need make sure we support those who have stood strong for our privacy rights and our safety.
When we heard about what was happening, we asked you to contact your legislators. You helped send over 150,000 phone calls and emails. Amazing! We now need you to come in person to Raleigh on October 13th to join Franklin Graham at the State Capital at noon that day and to join our state leaders for breakfast at our Carolina Values Summit that morning.
In every state where Franklin Graham has held his Decision America tour, thousands of people have shown up to stand for Biblical values. Raleigh is the last state capital for his tour, and we should have the most people of any State—not only because it is Franklin Graham’s home state, but also because our leaders have stood strong in the face of adversity. These two gatherings will be our expression of support for the courage and conviction our leaders have shown.
