NY Assembly Candidate Joseph Hayon Blames Helene Weinstein, Dean Skelos for Religious Persecution.
Monday Oct 22,2012. A lesbian couple filed a discrimination complaint against a religious business owner, Robert Gifford. Gifford did not allow the lesbian couple to use their farm for their wedding because it is against Gifford’s sincerely held religious beliefs.
Joseph Hayon, who is running against Helene Weinstein for Assembly in South Brooklyn said in a written statement, “More than half of the people whom Helene Weinstein currently represents believe it is a sin to accommodate a sin. Weinstein did not care to protect our religious freedom. Instead she voted for a gay marriage bill that persecutes religious people.”
If the Division of Human rights determine that Gifford discriminated, Gifford could be forced to pay a fine for acting according to his faith.
Hayon, himself a Republican also places blame on the Republican Senate Majority Leader, Dean Skelos. “Shortly before the gay ‘marriage’ bill passed, people affiliated with Jews for Morality met with Dean Skelos, warned him of the consequences, and Skelos still allowed this small business killing legislation for a vote. Skelos failed NYS citizens as a leader of the Senate.”
Joseph Hayon is a Candidate for the New York State Assembly in the 41st AD.
Mr. Hayon is also a Member of the Brooklyn Young Republican Club.
