Title File 011
Transcript Candidate says GPC should alter position District C City Council candidate Peter Elloway, a Libertarian, says the Gay Political Caucus should change its views on discrimination outside of government. GPC President Lee Harrrington said he respected Elloway, but "it's just not how things really are." Said Elloway, in a letter to the MONTROSE VOICE, "One GPC (election screening committee) question asks if the candidate supports amending the City Charter to ban the city government from discriminating against certain groups of people on account of physical or psychological being." ' "As a supporter of individual liberty, I would certainly support this measure; I believe all persons are equal before God and should be before the law." "The question continues to ask whether this ban should also be applied to the private sector. Liberal Democrats tend to say yes, being in favor of increasing government control over one's personal affairs, and of increasing the power of politicians over the people." "Libertarians would say no, that one has the right to whatever personal opinions one has, whether they are bigoted, intolerant, and stupid, or not. Libertarians believe that gays have the same right to not associate with straights, if they so desire, as straights have to not associate with gays." "History proves that one cannot force one's own concept of morality on any other person," Elloway wrote. "The GPC should alter its position on that issue and support individual human liberty," he concluded. Harrington responded, "The meaning of freedom in this country is that you don't allow the denial of basic human rights, regardless. Mr. Elloway's view is a myoptic vision of how things ought to be as opposed to how they really are." Elloway said this view of his was the reason he did not score as high with the screening committee as did candidates George Greanias and Joe Pentony. Greanias, a Rice University professor, was recommended by the committee and endorsed by the full GPC body. Avowed racist found guilty, again SALT LAKE CITY—White supremist Joseph Paul Franklin, who once hurled homophobic epithets at his prosecutor, was convicted Sept. 19 of the 1980 sniper murders of two black joggers. An all-white jury was being asked to send Franklin before a firing squad. The complex trial, with 75 witnesses and 200 exhibits, lasted three weeks, but the jury took only five hours to decide Franklin's guilt. Franklin, 31, while admitting to racist feelings, steadfastly claimed he was framed by state and federal law enforcement officials. Last March, Franklin was given two life-in-prison sentences after he was found guilty of violating the rights of two young blacks who were shot to death in August 1980 as they jogged out of a city park with two white teen-age girls. Franklin had earlier filed a lawsuit against the Salt Lake County sheriff claiming the sheriff violated his civil rights by locking him in a cellblock with "sexual deviates" and informants, and photocopying his mail. 10 Montrose Voice / September 25,1981 PEGASUS HAIR 1740 WESTHEIMER (ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE LOADING DOCK) FULL SERVICE SALON FOR MEN AND WOMEN 7-DAY-A-WEEK SERVICE 526-2668 526-X802 THE BED HOUSE BEDS!
