EL PASO - People who oppose the effort to recall mayor John Cook and two city representatives held a rally in Central El Paso.

The "Say No to Recall Picnic Rally" started around 5:30pm Sunday at Memorial Park. That's the same place where Pastor Tom Brown and his lawyers held a news conference yesterday.

Brown and his supporters are circulating a petition to recall Cook and city representatives Susie Byrd and Steve Ortega.

Brown claims they overturned the will of the voters when they restored health benefits to gay and domestic partners of city employees.

The anti-recall picnic lasted about 3 hours.

How can church leaders be so hateful. People without insurance are less likely to have mammograms and colonoscopes, and are therefor more at risk of having undetected cancers. They are more likely to suffer and die. What religion endorses this? It is hate, and it is NOT a "family value". They should loose their tax exempt status. Such an odious political movement should not be allowed to stretch their campaign dollars farther because they are tax-exempt as a "church".

This is not about Gay Rights but rather Equal Rights... so it is hard for me to believe that Stewart Leeds and Theresa Caballero are supporting the Recall group. I always thought that they were for the "little man" but apparently they are allowing their grudge against El Paso. A true shame to sell your soul to a minion of the devil!
