San Francisco Board of Supervisors Consult Spirit of Dead Gay Activist Through Ouija Board
John Avalos and his office aides turned to a Ouija board for consultation when attempting to determine if they should vote for or against a nonbinding resolution that would name a Navy vessel after slain gay political leader Harvey Milk.
The vote eventually passed with a 9-2 vote and the resolution urges the Navy to call its newest ship the USS Harvey Milk, a request originally submitted by San Diego Rep. Bob Filner, the ranking Democrat on the House Armed Services Committee.
As one of the first openly gay officeholders in the United States Harvey Milk serves on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors before he was gunned down in 1978 by colleague Dan White.
Before his time in office Harvey Milk served as a naval officer during the Korean War.
Tuesday’s vote came on what would have been Milk’s 82nd birthday. According to supervisor John Avalos in a conversation with the San Francisco Gate:
We “actually put our hands on the Ouija board and the letters g-o-o-d-r-i-d-d-a-n-c-e-d-a-d-t came out. We asked Harvey, and Harvey gave us these letters: ‘Good riddance don’t ask, don’t tell.’ It was quite clear that Harvey Milk would have been opposed to ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’ I can honestly say that’s one aspect of this resolution that’s really valid.”
With Harvey Milk’s ghostly blessing Avalos and seven other supervisors joined in to support the resolution.
Meanwhile the ACLU is suing to have any public expression of Christianity. Where the hell are the idiots screeching about the wall of separation between church and state?
The real purpose of these lawsuits is to target Christianity, not any feigned principle that the liberal left has.
