Do we want "LGBTQ" Civil Rights in Ohio?
NO! Please make calls today!

More teens drawn into "LGBTQ" behavior through SB 11? No way
Friends, we must take action immediately in OHIO to prevent an “Equality Act” here!
The Ohio Senate Judiciary Committee has heard proponent testimony— 200 people!!!!! — on a “sexual orientation” and “gender identity” rights bill, Senate Bill 11. How has this bill gotten so far in a GOP-controlled Ohio General Assembly??
Where are the "pro-family" lawmakers???
Beats me. And it's possible it will go no farther. But we need to make a bunch of calls to make sure. I did not think it would get this far.
If OPPONENT testimony is scheduled soon, be ready. YOU NEED TO SHOW UP AND TESTIFY. And I do mean, you PASTORS. Sorry for all caps but it is super frustrating to read all the church pastors who testified for a bill to allow men in women’s restrooms, and for people to be fired if they disagree with homosexual behavior, and see very few church leaders on our side willing to stand up and put your name on the line.
The Committee schedule is HERE, and expect a hearing on Wednesday, May 29 or on Wednesday, June 5. Keep checking this page.
Meanwhile, CALL Ohio Senate President Larry Obhoff, and ask him to please, never bring this assault on families, common sense, health and privacy to the Senate floor for a vote.
And then, please CALL every GOP member of the Ohio Senate Judiciary Committee and here are the numbers (forget the Democrats— they are hopelessly in the tank for this atrocious measure):
And yes, calls are more effective than emails—

DeWine Pledged to NOT SIGN an "LGBTQ" Bill
Linda Harvey, Mission America
Mike DeWine promised ME and 30 other pro-family advocates that he would NOT sign a homosexual "rights" bill. I asked him that question in a private forum in 2017. And he told all of us the answer was NO, he would not sign such a bill.
So, it is super discouraging to read in the Columbus Dispatch that our Lieutenant Governor, Jon Husted, won't give a straight answer opposing SB 11, the homosexual and “transgender” tyranny bill ?? But I am going to go on record right now and say, I have never trusted Husted and unless his policy positions change, he will never get my support.
It's great that he's pro-life, but if a politician doesn't understand the immense threat posed by the vicious "LGBTQ" lobby, they really don't understand the big picture. We can find more dependable lawmakers who are both pro-life and pro family.
And I am concerned about Mike DeWine as well. I asked him myself in a private meeting in 2017 whether he would ever sign a homosexual rights bill. Thirty other people heard him reply to me, "NO."
And now what is happening? He signed a "transgender" executive order right off the bat in January. What's up with that?
Here's a portion of the article in the Columbus Dispatch, where Husted was asked about Senate Bill 11 (homosexual bill):
"Asked if he supported the pending legislation, Husted said he had not discussed the matter in detail with DeWine. The governor’s office said it still is reviewing the bill and has taken no position on the measure introduced by Sen. Nickie Antonio, D-Lakewood.”
To read the full comments, go to the bottom of the Dispatch article,
And CALL Governor Mike DeWine—(614) 644-4357. Ask if he intends to keep his commitment to not sign a bill that upholds immoral behavior and disrespects Christians.
