Philadelphia Mayor Bans City Employees From Govt. Travel to States With ‘Discriminatory’ Laws

PHILADELPHIA — The Democratic mayor of Philadelphia has banned city employees from non-essential government travel to cities and states that have passed laws that he deems as being discriminatory toward homosexuals and transsexual persons.

In April, following controversy over North Carolina’s Public Facilities Privacy and Security Act and Mississippi’s Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act, Mayor Jim Kenney was among the officials who decided to issue travel bans for government employees.

“By issuing a non-essential travel ban to those states, we take a stand against bigotry and prejudice happening in those states, and in cities and states nationwide,” he said in a press release. “I will continue to actively welcome any and all people, businesses, organizations and events who no longer feel welcome in their state because of these discriminatory laws.”

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Minnesota Gov. Mark Dayton, Connecticut Gov. Daniel Malloy and Vermont Gov. Peter Schumlin were among those who issued bans as well.

Now, Kenney has announced bans on travel for official business to the state of Tennessee for its bill allowing counselors to opt out of counseling homosexuals over their religious convictions about the lifestyle, as well as Oxford, Alabama for its bill requiring citizens to use the restroom that correlates with their birth gender.

“I am announcing this ban in response to the enactment of legislation that infringes the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender individuals in these jurisdictions,” Kenney said in a statement. “I will reconsider this ban if the States of North Carolina, Mississippi, Tennessee and the city of Oxford, Alabama choose to repeal their discriminatory legislation.”

Employees may travel for public health or safety reasons upon pre-approval from the Philadelphia managing director’s office.

Like Barack Obama, Kenney’s office also urged observance of the month of June as “LGBT Pride Month,” stating that it is is “an opportunity to listen to one another, to share our perspectives, to remember our history, to celebrate our individuality, to identify where our experiences overlap, and to use this information to make our communities better, stronger, and more inclusive every single day.”

The city website includes listings of various events throughout the month including the Trans Health Conference Celebration on June 10 at the Municipal Services Building, which includes a pep rally and the raising of a “trans pride flag,” and the “Philadelphia Dyke March” at Kahn Park on June 11.

Kenney has additionally been listed as a “friend of pride” by Philly Pride Presents, the organizers of the annual Philadelphia PrideFest and parade.

As previously reported, homosexuality was banned in Pennsylvania at its inception. The 1682 “Great Law” of Pennsylvania, penned by its Quaker founder William Penn, required criminal penalties for those who engage in homosexual acts.

“And be it further enacted by the authority aforesaid that if any person shall be legally convicted of the unnatural sin of sodomy or joining with beasts such persons shall be whipped and forfeit one third part of his or her estate and work six months in the house of corrections at hard labor, and for the second offence imprisonment as aforesaid during life,” it read.

Kenney identifies as a Roman Catholic, but has often had a tense relationship with those in the religion.

  • The Left love to tell others what they can and cannot do.

    • james blue

      The “right” is just as bad. the only difference between the left and right is what part of our lives they wish to control.

      That said this order has to do with travel on the government’s (city) dime, not private travel on their own time.

      • storie

        It doesn’t make any difference who’s ‘dime’. It’s another step in infringement on people’s rights. Also….can you give some specific parts of our lives the ‘right’ wish to control?

        • james blue

          it does matter whose dime, the ban is only for non essential government travel,

          Blue laws, anti drug use laws, in the past laws banning homosexual acts in private, gambling laws, anti abortion laws such as requiring ultrasounds, government written statement required to be read. Against assisted suicide, anti gay marriage,….

          • storie

            Good grief!! These laws are there for a reason! If you think the murder of innocent babies and helping someone commit suicide is ok and that drugs should be legal, then there is something seriously wrong with you.

          • james blue

            You asked for examples, I gave them to you, the “left” will say the same thing about their big government laws “they are there for a reason”

            I take it you do not drink alcohol.

        • Ambulance Chaser

          It doesn’t? Government employees have a right to travel for their jobs to other states and have the government pay for it? Since when?

          • Luke Sulla

            Since when?

            Since we neglected to take our meds because we’ve been so busy chasing kids off our front lawn.

  • Carrie Lynn

    So if a County employee wants to travel to North Carolina to visit relatives for their vacation they’re not allowed to go? There are some people in this world that are truly losing all common sense.

    • james blue

      It’s a ban on official business on the government’s 9city) dime, not private travel on their own time at their own expense. The article is poorly written.

    • Michael C

      It appears that you inferred exactly what the author of this article intended.

    • SFBruce

      Incorrect. This order bans non-essential, government travel, as this article clearly states in the very first sentence. It has absolutely no effect on personal travel.

      • james blue

        The article has been edited to make the correction, it didn’t say that originally. Ms. Lynn asked the question before the edit. The comments pointing out the inaccuracy have also been removed.

    • james blue

      It’s a ban on official business on the government’s 9city) dime, not private travel on their own time at their own expense.

      The article has been edited and clears up confusion,

    • Luke Sulla

      Bless your heart. You have trouble keeping up, don’t you, Darlin’?

      It’s OK we’ll wait for you. And God bless.

  • storie

    Hmm……when are people going to get tired of this and say ‘enough is enough’??

  • Amos Moses

    They all seem to discriminate against murderers and thieves and rapists and child molesters (well so far on the child molesters, that could change soon) ……….. so ………… i guess it is all of them …….. GOOD ONE ………….

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    Another white politician who supports sexual perversion. They really shouldn’t apply racial equality upon sexual immorality. The terror of misplaced equality makes Christians and other religious people placed under oppression, because sin is not equal with anything. USA must keep the freedom of Christian conscience to declare homosexuality and transgender as sin. Why are Americans becoming like all the tyrants their fathers have defeated last century? Nazi Germany protected insane nationalism. Sodomic USA perotects sexual immorality unconditionally. Christian Americans must rise up for the sake of God’s honor, safety of children, and the sacrifice of liberators, before the liberals become more oppressive. No submission to liberals who support sexual immorality. Submission is to God alone as the Holy Bible and the Independence of Declaration state.

    • Kimberle Taitano

      “USA must keep the freedom of Christian conscience to declare homosexuality and transgender as sin.” I do not recall any verse in GODS WORD which states we have the right, or anything to declare something as sin, can you please clarify your statement? Also ” Submission is to God alone as the Holy Bible and the Independence of Declaration state so” There is no such clause in either the HOLY BIBLE or The Declaration of Independence. So I am obviously somewhat confused.

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        USA is a nation created to make people able to live by the Holy Bible and a clear conscience. For US government to make people endorse sexual immorality such as homosexuality and transgenderism is a human rights abuse and breach of human liberty. Submission to God alone is written in Acts ch. 4. US independence document has the God of the Holy Bible as the basis of all rights and freedom and provision. It’s impossible for USA to go against His Word. No God = nothing for the world or USA. Read them yourself.

      • Yes, u r very confused and full of demons Kimberle. Remember SODOM. #Genesis #Bible KJV

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    So discriminatory against the Christians. Who imagined a world where Americans – among all peoples on earth – would bully anyone for not-supporting the depraved sexual immorality? Why is USA living solely for sexual immorality nowadays? Even animals are not that low. This is so surreal. May God deal with USA for the sake of American children.

    • WorldGoneCrazy

      Thank you for gracing us with your wonderful wisdom, Sister Grace!

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        Thank you. Let us keep battling for liberty. It’s a shame if we stay silent when oppressive Sodomy supporters abolish liberty from the face of the earth. They are rich and powerful and corrupt, as always, but we must not back down. Our forefathers did not calculate, and we shouldn’t either. USA was created by the Christians to bring mankind the true liberty to live according to God’s truth for the first time in history; it must not be taken away by these American Sodomites. We must never submit to them. No repetition of the German churches in facing Nazis.

        • OhSoGood

          Still trying to see the US as a theocracy, huh Grace? Even though you killed the comments section on CP, here you are still shilling hate.

          Good grief.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            USA is under theocracy. Read your Declaration of Independence and all monuments throughout your land. What went wrong with you, Americans? Stop being bad descendants. Truth-telling is not hate but the true love. I didn’t do anything but just writing comments. Does writing comments make other people’s comments get erased? Why? You secular Americans must stop bullying the Christians in the land of America, the nations which Christians have created for solely Christians’ godly happiness. Feel ashamed of the evils you’ve done against God and to your forefathers. You guys ALWAYS deny the existence of the Creator and His people and fall into falsehood. Remember you guys are not smarter than the Germans. No nationals are. USA needs humility before God, or the nation will collapse like so many other foolish empires did. What good is accumilation of things and weapons if the descendants are godless? Read Revelation ch. 20-22 to know your End.

          • OhSoGood

            BWA HA HA HA HA!!! No, your mythology is nowhere in our law. You lose, toots.

        • WorldGoneCrazy

          So true, Grace. I am reading the book “Preaching in Hitler’s Shadow” right now. Quite stunning how most of the Church folded during those days.

          • Grace Kim Kwon

            Yes, it’s typical, and changes are taking place in a vortex manner. The Lord is near. I love America very much as my heart’s homeland because I respect your forefathers; we can do so much in each era. The Lord is with you. May He bless you, brother. Thank you very much for your encouragement.

    Christian Nationalists have enjoyed a status of privilege and special rights for a very long time, so it’s understandable that their noses are a bit bent out of shape when the playing field is starting to be leveled.

    Adults continue to permanently turn away from homosexuality, even after decades of believing the lie they were “born that way”, proving it’s not genetic, but the product of indoctrination, confusion, mental instability and/or abuse.

    Homosexual behavior is most literally pointed out as a sin, and God has not changed on that regard. But if a person has those inclinations but does not act upon them, does not dwell in lust upon others, but is instead struggling against them to avoid them, then it’s not a sin. It’s just like sinful inclinations of any kind: it’s acting upon it when it becomes a sin.

    And this is what God says about sin and specifically the behavior of homosexuality:

    Romans 1:26-27 ”For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: (27) And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their_lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.”

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10 ”Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate [men who willingly take on the part of a “woman” with another man], nor abusers of themselves with mankind [s odomites], (10) Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God.”

    1 Timothy 1:9-10 ”Knowing this, that the law is not made for a righteous man, but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and for sinners, for unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, (10) For_whoremongers, for them that defile themselves with mankind [s odomites], for menstealers, for liars, for perjured persons, and if there be any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine;”

    Jude 1:7 ”Even as_Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.”

    Luke 17:29 ”[Jesus said] But the same day that Lot went out of_Sodom it rained fire and brimstone from heaven, and destroyed them all.”

    Matthew 19:4-6 ”And he [Jesus] answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, (5) And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh? (6) Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder.”

    Jesus made it quite clear God made us male and female so that a man will leave his father and mother (not two fathers, not three mothers and so on) and cleave onto his wife (not his husband and so on).

    The Word of God rebukes us all – even if we all try to say we don’t believe the Bible, the very Word of God will be our judge when we face Him. And God is a righteous judge and will judge us all – not turn a blind eye to our sin. Do not be deceived by the world: it’s God we will have to convince that His word was a lie, not men. What happened in Noah’s day when the entire world rejected God? Did God spare them because there were so many? No – they all perished except for Noah and his family!

    Proverbs 9:10 ”The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.”

    God spared not His chosen people – we are kidding ourselves if we think He will spare the United States of America if we choose to blatantly turn away from Him.

    Jeremiah 12:17 ”But if they will not obey, I will utterly pluck up and destroy that nation, saith the LORD.”

    Luke 17:28-30 “So also as it was in the days of Lot: they ate, they drank, they bought, they sold, they planted, they built; (29) but the day Lot went out of Sodom, it rained fire and brimstone from the heaven and destroyed them all. (30) Even so it shall be in the day when the Son of Man is revealed.”

    Romans 1:18-32 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold [suppress] the truth in unrighteousness; Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

    For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

    Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

    For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

    And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, m urder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.”

    The entire Bible points out men having_sex with men is an abomination. Likewise woman having_sex with women. It’s not just Paul that pointed it out.

    Genesis 19:4-13 “But before they lay down, the men of the city, even the men of S odom, compassed the house round, both old and young, all the people from every quarter: And they called unto Lot, and said unto him, Where are the men which came in to thee this night? bring them out unto us, that we may know them [men wanting to have_sex with men].

    And Lot went out at the door unto them, and shut the door after him, And said, I pray you, brethren, do not so wickedly. Behold now, I have two daughters which have not known man; let me, I pray you, bring them out unto you, and do ye to them as is good in your eyes: only unto these men do nothing [he offers his daughters to be_raped to keep them from having_sex with another man – shows_rape is not the issue but male on male_sex]; for therefore came they under the shadow of my roof.

    And they said, Stand back. And they said again, This one fellow came in to sojourn, and he will needs be a judge: now will we deal worse with thee, than with them. And they pressed sore upon the man, even Lot, and came near to break the door. But the men put forth their hand, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door. And they smote the men that were at the door of the house with blindness, both small and great: so that they wearied themselves to find the door.

    And the men said unto Lot, Hast thou here any besides? son in law, and thy sons, and thy daughters, and whatsoever thou hast in the city, bring them out of this place: For we will destroy this place, because the cry of them is waxen great before the face of the LORD; and the LORD hath sent us to destroy it.”

    These two messengers were sent to destroy that place before the event where they tried to_rape these messengers.

    Leviticus 18:22 “Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.”

    Leviticus 20:13 “If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination …”

    Even cross-dressing is an abomination:

    Deuteronomy 22:5 “The woman shall not wear that which pertaineth unto a man, neither shall a man put on a woman’s garment: for all that do so are abomination unto the LORD thy God.”

    Deuteronomy 23:17 “There shall be no_whore of the daughters of Israel, nor a s odomite of the sons of Israel.”

    1 Kings 22:46 “And the remnant of the s odomites, which remained in the days of his father Asa, he took out of the land.”

    1 Kings 15:11-12 “And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father. And he took away the s odomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.”

    2 Kings 23:7 “And he brake down the houses of the s odomites, that were by the house of the LORD, where the women wove hangings for the grove.”

    Ezekiel 16:49-50 “Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister S odom, pride, fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters, neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy. And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me: therefore I took them away as I saw good.”

    And the “pride” parades about homosexuality are more of the same.

    Matthew 19:4-5 “And he answered and said unto them, Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?”

    Not father and father. Not mother and mother. Not his husband.

    And only two people of opposite gender can become “one flesh”.

    Live forever, people – not temporarily only to be cast out for living for the things of this world.

    May God/Jesus Christ be glorified!

      I am heterosexual, I was born that way. I cannot choose to be gay, I cannot be talked into engaging in gay sexual activity. I have no sexual attraction to men. I have no choice in being heterosexual.

      So I have to ask, could you choose to be gay and engage in homosexual activity? Do you only choose not to because it’s a sin, you have the attraction and temptation and in a moment of human weakness you could cave in to those desires?

      • Reason2012

        It’s not a “conscious” choice. A woman cannot “choose” in that sense to be attracted to abusive men, either. But they weren’t born that way, either. Perverse attractions are brought about by confusion, indoctrination, mental instability and/or abuse,

        And it’s a fact that a high percentage of boys that were molested when very young ended up developing homosexual attractions -many have admitted to this.

        And if it was genetic no one would permanently, on their own, turn away from it.

        And even IF someone believed the false claim it was genetic, it’s no different than any other sinful desires: we are not to dwell on them in lust and not act on them – the desire itself is not sin – it’s acting up it or lusting on it that becomes sinful acts.

        • james blue

          Is heterosexuality genetic?

          • Reason2012

            Since most people who are not exposed to perverse indoctrination / images / ideas when very young, are of healthy mind, are not sexually abused when young and/or not sexually confused end up being heterosexual, seems observable, repeatable, verifiable that it is.

            Is being a male genetic? Or do we now throw out genetics and pretend feelings supersede genetics when it’s convenient for the viewpoint we’re trying to force on society?

          • james blue

            So heterosexuality is genetic, but you said “if it was genetic no one would permanently, on their own, turn away from it.” So how can anyone become homosexual then as heterosexuality is genetic and nobody turns away from something that is genetic?

            BTW kids who are abused when young are just as likely to be heterosexual in adulthood and kids who are raised in stable non abusive heterosexual households never being abused by outsiders either sometimes grow up to be homosexuals.

            You can argue that acting on something is a choice, but the attraction isn’t.

          • Reason2012

            No, i said if homosexuality was genetic, no one would permanently, on their own (read: as an adult) turn away from it.

            Little boys who are abused by men: high percentage of them grow up with homosexual attractions at some point.

            Since you’re claiming genetics trumps feelings: Again you avoided the question: Is being a male genetic? Or do we now throw out genetics and pretend feelings supersede genetics when it’s convenient for the viewpoint we’re trying to force on society?

          • james blue

            Okay let me reword it to try to fix your confusion. you said homosexuality can’t be genetic because some homosexuals “permanently turn away from it” You then said heterosexuality IS genetic, but how can it be because some turn away from it to permanently be homosexual by their own choice without influence? You countered your own argument about how homosexuality is not genetic.

        • Theodore Fenton

          Pure nonsense. I just covered a jury trial involving a male karate instructor who allegedly molested two little girls over a one-year period. Seven witnesses called by the state were former students of the karate school, all male, who allegedly had been molested by another male instructor at the same school 15 years earlier. Five of the male victims are married with children, and the other two male victims are dating females. Your agenda is driven by hatred and bigotry.

          • Reason2012

            Notice how you ignore the fact that they were all victims of homosexual molestation.

            Adults who were homosexual used to be married as well – s pointing to them being married means nothing.

            Meanwhile we’re not talking about 7 people

            “In 1983, a probability survey of the sexual experiences of 4,340 adults in five U.S. cities found that about 3% of men and 7% of women reported sexual involvement with a man before the age of 13 (i.e., 30% was homosexual).4

            In 1983-84, a random survey of 3,132 adults in Los Angeles found that 3.8% of men and 6.8% of women said that they had been sexually assaulted in childhood. Since 93% of the assailants were male, and only 1% of girls had been assaulted by females, about 35% of the assaults were homosexual.5

            The Los Angeles Times surveyed 2,628 adults across the U.S. in 1985.6 27% of the women and 16% of the men claimed to have been sexually molested. Since 7% of the molestations of girls and 93% of the molestations of boys were by adults of the same sex, about 4 of every 10 molestations in this survey were homosexual.

            In a random survey of British 15-to-19 yr olds, 35% of the boys and 9% of the girls claimed to have been approached for sex by adult homosexuals and 2% of the boys and 1% of the girls admitted to succumbing.7

            In science, a review of the professional literature published in a refereed scientific journal is considered to be an accurate summary of the current state of knowledge. One of the most comprehensive such reviews was published in 1985.8 It concluded that homosexual acts were involved in 25% to 40% of the cases of child molestation recorded in the scientific and forensic literature.”

            The 1948 Kinsey survey found that 37% of the gays and 2% of the lesbians admitted to sexual relations with under-17-yr-olds, and 28% of the gays and 1% of the lesbians admitted to sexual relations with under-16-yr-olds while they themselves were aged 18 or older.18

            In 1970 the Kinsey Institute interviewed 565 white gays in San Francisco: 25% of them admitted to having had sex with boys aged 16 or younger while they themselves were at least 21.19

            In The Gay Report, 23% of the gays and 6% of the lesbians admitted to sexual interaction with youth less than 16 years of age.20

            In France, 129 convicted gays (average age 34 years) said they had had sexual contact with a total of 11,007 boys (an average of 85 different boys per man).21 Abel, et al reported similarly that men who molested girls outside their family had averaged 20 victims each; those who molested boys averaged 150 victims each.22

            And just like pedophiles (heterosexual) were likely sexually abused as children, hence creating in them a “desire” for children, it’s no coincidence that an abnormally high percent of those who have homosexual attractions are attracted to young boys, which also shows abuse of them at a young age.

            Go to youtube and search on homosexuals admitting they were molested and take your pick.

            The agenda of hiding these facts so that more boys and girls get molested is hateful.

            “Adults who were homosexual used to be married as well – s pointing to them being married means nothing”

            So You are saying that they are still homosexual even if they don’t act on it and live a heterosexual life?

    oh, how satan loves division, confusion and every evil work! Now, governors think they can just cut out other states as if they are not a part of the United States because they do not agree with allowing the opposite sex into the bathroom of their choice. The beast is gearing up for war but he will be defeated by the Rider on the white horse, dipped in blood, whose name is written on His thigh in which He alone knows the meaning of. All glory, honor and praise to Jesus Christ 4-ever!!!
