Transcript 22 SAY AUSTIN JULY 1978 NEWS BRIEFS continued from page 21 Pink Triangle Press, publisher of TBI) ts claiming that the warrant was Illegal because It ves so vaguely worded as to allow the police to take anything they wished. In fact, the police seized twelve cartons of material, Including subscription lists and manuscripts* The raid prompted expressions of concern from a wide variety of groups and Individuals Including Books In Canada editor Douglas Marshall, broadcaster June Callwood the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, and eight Toronto city aldermen. The action was also protested by members of the gay community in places as far away as London, San Francisco and Melbourne, Australia, aa well as all across Canada, In a recent development, TBP has learned that the police have obtained a judge's authorization to retain the materials seized for a further 12-month period The paper waa not permitted even to argue against the court application for this authorization. ANITA continued from page 15 choosa abortion or to be constitutionally guaranteed of equal rights. During the press conference after her performance, Bryant spoke to this peint quite clearly: "I just know that we cannot legislate morality, but I think it's time we stopped legislating immorality." Anita described her Initial motivation to oppose gay rights beginning with that ill-famed Dade County ordinance es a fight to "repeal special privilege laws which would take away the constitutional rights of a majority of Americans That issue (In Dade County) would have made It mandatory that private, religious schools hire flaunting homosexuals. That's a very religious, bigoted (sic) law." "And." she continued, "what they (gays) want to do on a national basis is to use these laws to push homosexuality as an alternative lifestyle." Anita almost bit the truth In that last statement, but she errs in her usage of the verb "to push." Gays are not trying to push anything on anyone. Yet we do want to have our way of life accepted as an alternative lifestyle, and not be discriminated against or left outside the protection of (or persecuted by) the law for being what we are. JULIO CORENO continued from page 11 didn't talk to us, because for us, for me, for the union, we weren't going because we were so anxious to see himj because after ell we weren't going to kiss him. What mattered was talking to the people, to the poor people, to every class of people, poor and not poor, to anyone who would support us. That was our Idea. Anita spoke about her concern over homosexuality as a mother. She has felt compelled to take a political stand against gay rlghta in order to protect her children (and everybody else's). When asked if she really recognized the degree of difference and tha not totally logical connection between her political stance (and note, It's not a religious one now) and her concern as a mother, Bryant lost some of the composure she had maintained until then and said "They (gays) are under the constitution. IF THEY DON'T FLAUNT THEIR HOMOSEXUALITY, THEY HAVE THE SAME RIGHTS AS ANYONE ELSE." As long as gays are "in the closet," they are not offending Anita and thus endangering her children. The hundreds of people standing out by Town Lake on that muggy Sunday morning had certainly been focusing their celebration and peaceful protest on the right issue — human rights. For Anita Bryant is asking us to hide ourselves so that we don't offend her and threaten her rights by asserting our own. Of course, those people didn't have to be inside to hear that message -- it has been heard before and will be heard again.
