Vermont Representative Nancy Sheltra, R-Derby, referred by many homosexual activists as Der Fuehreress has proposed a bill to overturn Vermont’s civil union law.
“If anybody out there thinks that Vermont is the only one impacted by this legislation, they are truly mistaken, because it will affect their state eventually,” Sheltra said.
The six-term state representative will introduced her appeal in January. If state lawmakers refuse to overturn the measure, she may pursue impeaching Vermont’s supreme court. The civil union law was approved after justices mandated a comprise between elected officials and homosexual rights advocates.
“I’m very serious about the justices being impeached because they overstepped their constitutional boundaries,” Sheltra said.
She is also the lead sponsor of a bill that would “make it illegal to encourage, promote or sanction homosexual or bisexual conduct” in schools. Homosexual activism at school needs to be stopped. “I can tell you, folks, they (homosexual activists) are five hundred miles ahead of us on this,” she said “Our children should be in the school system to be children,” Sheltra said. “They don’t have to be targeted in elementary-class levels about HIV and AIDS.”
Sheltra who has fought bitterly against Howard Dean’s pro-homosexual agenda (Dean is facing a stiff challenge from Republican Ruth Dwyer, who like Sheltra, want to repeal the civil unions bill next year) says she is concerned about the former Vermont governor’s recent fundraising success. Dean’s fundraising efforts are raising the eyebrows of Democrats and Republicans alike. The former Vermont governor raised almost $7 million in the second quarter of 2003 — a figure higher than any other Democratic hopeful for the same period. Vermont House member Nancy Sheltra says she is worried that Dean — like Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton before him — may become one of those candidates who is not well known by voters but ascends through the ranks when running for the presidency. Sheltra believes part of Dean’s fundraising success can be attributed to the support of homosexuals who are financially well off and are pouring money into his campaign. She advises concerned voters to be “very diligent” about the presidential race. Sheltra says Christians need to take note of the candidacy of Dean and his support for “civil unions” legislation in Vermont.
“If anybody out there thinks that Vermont is the only one impacted by this legislation, they are truly mistaken, because it will affect their state eventually,” Sheltra said. Many of the legislators here in the house think this is all a big joke. Recently she stumbled on a stack of Out In the Mountains, Vermont’s gay monthly, in the halls of the State House “It was left in the cafeteria where pages and touring children could see it
