    NY Senate Candidate Wants To Remove Images of Gay People from School Textbooks

    A New York Democratic hopeful has vowed to fight to ban images of same-sex couples from school textbooks and voiced his opposition to same-sex marriage.

    Queens candidate S.J. Jung, who is challenging incumbent Senator Toby Ann Stavisky in the September 13 primary, made the comments earlier this year to a Korean religious group.

    At the same meeting last March, Jung asked for prayers “so I can get elected to the New York State Senate to stop [same-sex marriage and others issues of concern] from happening.”

    The douche LaRouche also registers Democrat but when it comes to high office, the party not only refuses to recognize him as a party member but also refused to seat what delegates he might manage to sway. As registration is an open process, it takes more than registering Democrat to be a Democrat.

    Unlike the Republican Party where any Tom Dick or Trump can take over the place.

    This in part is why we have a party platform. And here's the Democratic Party's Platform planks on being gay in America...

    https://www.demconvention.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/07/Democratic-Party-Platform-7.21.16-no-lines.pdf
    2016 Democratic Party Platform July 21, 2016

    As Approved by the Democratic Platform Committee July 8-9, 2016 - Orlando, FL


    ...We believe in protecting civil liberties and guaranteeing civil rights and voting rights, women’s rights and workers’ rights, LGBT rights, and rights for people with disabilities. We believe America is still, as Robert Kennedy said, “a great country, an unselfish country, and a compassionate country.” ...

    ...We recognize that there are vulnerable communities within our immigration system who are often seeking refuge from persecution abroad, such as LGBT families, for whom detention can be unacceptably dangerous....

    Guaranteeing Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Rights
    Democrats applaud last year’s decision by the Supreme Court that recognized that LGBT people—like other Americans—have the right to marry the person they love. But there is still much work to be done. LGBT kids continue to be bullied at school, restaurants can refuse to serve transgender people, and same-sex couples are at risk of being evicted from their homes. That is unacceptable and must change. Democrats will fight for the continued development of sex discrimination law to cover LGBT people. We will also fight for comprehensive federal nondiscrimination protections for all LGBT Americans, to guarantee equal rights in areas such as housing, employment, public accommodations, credit, jury service, education, and federal funding. We will oppose all state efforts to discriminate against LGBT individuals, including legislation that restricts the right to access public spaces. We support a progressive vision of religious freedom that respects pluralism and rejects the misuse of religion to discriminate. We will combat LGBT youth homelessness and improve school climates. We will support LGBT elders, ensure access to necessary health care, and protect LGBT people from violenceincluding ending the crisis of violence against transgender Americans. We will also promote LGBT human rights and ensure America’s foreign policy is inclusive of LGBT people around the world.

    ... We will equip the Census Bureau with the resources needed to prepare for and conduct a cost effective, complete and accurate census, as well as improve counting segments of the population that are historically and persistently undercounted, specifically communities of color, immigrants, LGBT people, young children, those with disabilities, and rural and low-income populations. We will also maintain the legal requirement for the public to participate and be counted....

    ...We will end the school-to-prison pipeline by opposing discipline policies which disproportionately affect African Americans and Latinos, Native Americans and Alaska Natives, students with disabilities, and youth who identify as LGBT. We will support the use of restorative justice practices that help students and staff resolve conflicts peacefully and respectfully while helping to improve the teaching and learning environment....

    ...A Strong Military Democrats welcome and honor all Americans who want to serve and will continue to fight for their equal rights and recognition. We are proud of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell and we commit ourselves to insuring fair treatment for LGBT veterans, including by proactively reviewing and upgrading discharge records for veterans who were discharged because of their sexual orientation. We are also proud of the opening of combat positions to women. Our military is strongest when people of all races, religions, sexual orientations, and gender identities are honored for their service to our country....

    Protect Our Values
    Our values of inclusion and tolerance inspire hope around the world and make us safer at home. The world will be more secure, stable, and peaceful when all people are able to reach their God given potential and live in freedom and dignity. We strive to ensure that the values upon which our country was built, including our belief that all people are created equal, are reflected in everything our nation does. That is why we will promote peacebuilding, protect democracy, and champion human rights defenders. And we will seek to safeguard vulnerable minorities, including LGBT people and people with disabilities....

    Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender People
    Democrats believe that LGBT rights are human rights and that American foreign policy should advance the ability of all persons to live with dignity, security, and respect, regardless of who they are or who they love. We applaud President Obama’s historic Presidential Memorandum on International Initiatives to Advance the Human Rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Persons, which combats criminalization, protects refugees, and provides foreign assistance. We will continue to stand with LGBT people around the world, including fighting efforts by any nation to infringe on LGBT rights or ignore abuse....


    We look forward to your proudly displaying for everyone's review your Green Party Platform or GOParty Platforms or whatever other party you support. Good luck with that.

    NY Daily News: In a statement to the Daily News late last week S.J. Jung did not deny raising the issue of seeking to keep pictures of gay couples out of textbooks.

    He told the News he opposes gay marriage, which puts him at odds with many in his own Democratic party.

    Calling it a "matter of distinction, not a matter of discrimination," Jung said he believes "in the Bible's teaching that marriage is between a man and a woman."

    Democratic Incumbent Sen. Toby Ann Stavisk. Stavisky, who previously defeated Jung in the 2014 Democratic primary, voted to legalize gay marriage in New York.

    nystateofpolitics.com: S.J. Jung at a candidates forum this week declared he is opposed to abortion.

    At a news conference, Democratic incumbent Stavisky and her allies — including Democratic Minority Leader Andrea Stewart-Cousins — blasted the remarks.

    “SJ Jung fails to understand that abortion is a fundamental right for women, just like equal pay, or the right to vote. His extreme anti-choice views make him unfit to represent Queens in the New York State Senate,” said Andrea Miller, the president of the Campaign for a Pro-Choice New York PAC. “The people of District 16 have been fortunate to be represented by Senator Toby Ann Stavisky, who has long been an advocate for access to all reproductive health care and a true champion for women’s rights.”
