Anti-gay posts linked to school board’s Covil draw backlash

There has been some backlash against a New Hanover County Board of Education member following a Facebook post by an account with the name Tammy Jobin Covil.

In a post to the private Facebook group New Hanover Co (NC) Republicans, the user posted, “Yet another example of why the social issues matter in politics. Gay marriage isn’t about marriage rights at all, it’s about forcing others to accept a perverted lifestyle choice as ‘normal.’ It’s important to know where the leaders of our party stand on these issues because they have a profound impact on our society. #TheSocialIssuesMatter”

Equality NC, an organization that says it is dedicated to securing equal rights and justice for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender North Carolinians, first spoke out on Twitter, writing, “Why don’t we want #ncga to allow public officials to discriminate? This @NewHanoverCoSch member is a start. #stopSB2.”



I received an email asking for people to support Mrs. Covil who is under attack for speaking the truth concerning homosexuality. You may disagree with her views but you cannot disagree with the Bible:

Romans 1

18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

19 Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

20 For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.

22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools,

23 And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things.

24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:

25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:

27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient;

29 Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers,

30 Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,

31 Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:

32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.

First they came for the Christians… 

Will you stand up and support her on June 2nd at 5:00PM in New Hanover County against their attacks on her?
