Transcript (Continued from Page 3) Carpenter stated in full: "I have not been subject to a discussion concerning this subject. So I do not know on what basis you and your associates base your concept of sexual orientation. As of now based on Christian principles and biblical knowledge, I would be opposed to any ordinance which would legalize the joining together of any persons other than a man and woman." GCFR: Did not endorse any candidate. Place Three. Jim Bradshaw defeated Jack Williams in a runoff after elimination of Richard Hyde in the initial voting. AURA: Hyde and Bradshaw did not respond. Jack Williams sent the following statement to AURA: "I believe Fort Worth should comply with all anti-discrimination decisions of the Supreme Court. I believe Gay People are entitled to all the rights given all other citizens - no more and no less." GCFR: Endorsed Jack Williams Place Four: John J. O'Neill was unopposed. He did not respond and there was no endorsement. Place Five: Hugh Parmer ran unopposed. AURA: Parmer did not respond. GCFR: Endorsed Parmer (The Committee did not explain why they endorsed Parmer.) Place Six: Woodie Woods defeated the incumbent, Leonard Briscoe. AURA: Briscoe did not respond. Woods sent the following statement: "It is not my nature to discriminate against any human being for any reason. As a public servant, I would be even more aware of this trait. If discrimination existed and could only be controlled by ordinance, then I would support such an ordinance. Thank you for your concern." GCFR: Endorsed Woodie Woods. Place Seven: Richard Newkirk defeated Bill Turner in a run-off after elimination of Joe R. Keeton in the initial voting. No response and no endorsement. Place Eight: Henry A. Meadows ran unopposed. He did not respond and there was no endorsement. Place Nine: Margaret Rimmer defeated Bill Smith. AURA: Rimmer did not respond. Bill Smith's reply started with "... some of the best friends I have in this world are Gay People ..." and ended with "but you and your people have my word on one thing: I will never introduce an ordinance such as you have mentioned." Commenting on Smith's reply, AURA Director Ken Cyr said, "It seems like he was trying to imply that Gay People are interfering with straight peoples' rights by our fight to be protected against discrimination." GCFR: Endorsed Smith with reservations. The Committee explained that, as in most of the other places, it was a choice of the lesser of two evils. SEX REFORM PASSES IN CALIFORNIA (Sacramento, CA) California lawmakers have approved a bill to repeal the state's harsh laws against oral copulation, sodomy and adultry which previously carried penalties of up to 15 years in prison for oral copulation and life in prison for (rectal) sodomy. The bill, introduced by Assemblyman Willie Brown, passed the Assembly on a 45-26 vote and then squeaked through a more conservative Senate on a tie-breaker vote cast by the state's It. governor. The measure, which has been signed into law by Governor Ed Brown, will be effective January 1,1975. The governor had previously expressed privately to Gay leaders his willingness to sign such a bill. COUNCIL OF CHURCHES ENDORSES GAY RIGHTS (Chicago) The Governing Board of the National Council of Churches has endorsed equal rights for Gay People. The Board, representing 30 Protestant and Orthodox denominations, passed a resolution March 6 calling for legislation to ensure "full civil rights" for anyone facing bias "because of their affectional or sexual preference." The action followed a year and a half of effort by the National Gay Task Force on Gay People in the Church.
