ALASKA FAMILY ACTION ENDORSES TROMBLEY & EVANS
Next Tuesday's Anchorage Municipal Election has a sub-plot that many citizens might not have pondered.
If the Anchorage Assembly changes a few key seats turning control over to the more liberal members, there is little doubt that one of the first items on their agenda will be to re-introduce an ordinance that would add sexual-orientation and transgender identity to Anchorage's list of protected legal classes.
You might remember that Alaska Family Action led the effort back in April of 2012 to oppose Proposition 5. The debate stirred up national attention and caused a record turnout to the polls.
Ultimately, common sense and truth prevailed and voters rejected the Proposition by a 58% to 42% margin. Although we were significantly outspent, we achieved victory by appealing to residents who knew that our community was already tolerant and that the measure posed significant risks to the religious liberties of individuals, businesses and faith-based organizations. Click here for the article in the Catholic Anchor that laid out the Archdiocese opposition.
Transgender people teaching your child's first-grade class. Christian wedding photographers forced to take pictures at homosexual "commitment" ceremonies. Bakers forced to make cakes for homosexual weddings. A church camp sued for not making facilities available for homosexual wedding. Businesses forced to make the ladies restroom open to men who are claiming to be "women." The list goes on and on if another Prop 5 type ordinance is introduced and passes. Real threats to rights of conscience are unfolding in community after community as these laws are passed.
Candidates Bill Evans and Adam Trombley support the will of Anchorage voters, by opposing extremist legislation like Proposition 5 that would take away the freedom of citizens to run their businesses, schools, and churches in a manner consistent with their values and their conscience.
Alaska Family Action urges your support of Adam Trombley and Bill Evans for Anchorage Assembly who've assured our organization that they would vote no should another Prop 5 like ordinance come before them.
ADAM TROMBLEY - District 5 - Trombley is running in East Anchorage and has been a consistent conservative voice on the Anchorage Assembly. This seat is critical to maintain a majority on the Assembly who will vote to protect your religious liberties.
BILL EVANS - District 6 - Evans is running in South Anchorage for a seat previously occupied by Chris Birch who was termed out. Birch was a reliable voice for traditional, conservative values on the Assembly and has endorsed Evans.
Please do your part and spread the news as far and wide as you can about support from Trombley and Evans. Turnout in Municipal elections is often unbelievably low and so a few votes one way or the other can have a decisive impact on the direction our community goes.
On Tuesday, April 1st, get out and vote and if you're in East or South Anchorage, vote for Adam Trombley and Bill Evans. Elections matter and your vote will make the difference.

Here is what Einstein actually had to say that was related: “A man who is convinced of the truth of his religion is indeed never tolerant. At the least, he is to feel pity for the adherent of another religion but usually it does not stop there. The faithful adherent of a religion will try first of all to convince those that believe in another religion and usually he goes on to hatred if he is not successful. However, hatred then leads to persecution when the might of the majority is behind it. In the case of a Christian clergyman, the tragic-comical is found in this… "
“To take those fools in clerical garb seriously is to show them too much honor.”

“I am convinced that some political and social activities and practices of the Catholic organizations are detrimental and even dangerous for the community as a whole, here and everywhere. I mention here only the fight against birth control at a time when overpopulation in various countries has become a serious threat to the health of people and a grave obstacle to any attempt to organize peace on this planet.”
- Albert Einstein, letter, 1954
