OMAHA, NE – Anti-LGBT petitioners will be depending greatly on local churches to do their evil anti-LGBT dirty work. Surprised? This is the text from the letter sent to an unknown number of churches. I suspect its the same churches behind Nebraska Heritage Coalition.
Here is the Letter:
Thank you for your continued support and for your patience as we continue to organize our Petition Circulator teams. In an effort to keep you all in the loop, we wanted to give you a brief update on recent activities:
Status of the Petition:
We have submitted our final version of the Petition to be reviewed and approved by the Omaha City Council Clerk, Buster Brown. Mr. Brown along with Counsel from the Omaha City Law Department is giving our Petition that final review and we expect to hear back from them tomorrow, October 2, with any formatting changes. Some additional jurisdictional issues are also being worked out between the Douglas County Election Commissioner and the City of Omaha and we hope to have Petitions available for distribution at the end of the week. You may soon hear that we will need 11,419 valid signatures; although true, our goal is much higher and we will need everyone’s focused efforts to ensure success.
If you have not already done so, please designate a point of contact for your church or organization and notify me at the address below so that our Church Liaison Coordinators may coordinate circulator activities. All Church Liaisons are asked to recruit Circulator Team Members, Notary Publics and other Volunteers.
Petition Circulator Training:
A big thanks to everyone who may have participated in our Circulator Training sessions so far! These sessions have been a valuable exercise to help volunteers know what to expect as they go forth to circulate the petitions. We will continue to hold brief training sessions throughout the month of October during the actual Petition Drive every Tuesday and Thursday evening at our Activity Center located at 1065 North 115th Ct., Ste. 120, Omaha, NE 68154. This week we will host two additional training meetings at Covenant Presbyterian to help kick-off the Petition Drive. If you have not already done so, please plan to attend one of these very important sessions.
Please attend one of the Petition Circulator Training Classes below on
Thursday, October 4 5:30 PM or 7:00 PM at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 15002 Blondo Street Omaha, NE 68116 (150th & Blondo Streets – north side) Petitions are available and will be distributed there.
Sunday: October 7th – Supportive Pastors will Preach from the Pulpit on Moral Sexual Behavior, Freedom of Religious Speech, and related issues. Our teams will gather Petition Signatures before and after Services.
Congratulations to all for a super job well done!!! Our September Voter Registration Drive was a massive success. Registrations for Douglas County are peaked and we are setting a record for the number of Early Ballot Application Request Forms returned to the Election Commissioner’s office. Today, over 33,000 early ballots were mailed out. Please continue to have Voter Registration forms available during the Petition Drive. We will distribute Early Ballot Application Forms for the City Spring Primary and General Elections throughout the month of October.
Media & Messaging:
Please refrain from speaking on behalf of the Nebraska Heritage Coalition or the Omaha Liberty Project. Our official spokesperson, Dr. Jim Eckman will make all authorized statements to members of the Media. You however, are of course free to speak for yourselves, your churches or other organizations you may be so tasked to represent. We will be featured in many Public Service Announcements throughout the month of October. Our sole aim at this point in time is to simply give the people of Omaha the opportunity to vote on this very important issue.
“Let the People Vote!”
God bless you all.
