NEW YORK CITY'S propos-
ed human rights ordinance
.ed human r i g h t s ordinance
would have banned discrimina-
tion against gay people in em-
ployment, housing and public
accommodation.
It was defeated last week in
New York's city council by a
vote of 23 to 19, largely because
of outspoken opposition from
the Catholic Church and the po-
lice and fire departments.
The leaflet' passed out by
demonstrators Sunday morning
called "an outrageous lie" the
implication that gay people are
"a moral or sexual threat to
young children."
"IT IS THE straight white
male who is the perpetrator of
the vast majority of sexual
crimes in this country, includ-
ing rape and' child molestation,
the leaflet charged. -
Parishioners generally s a id
they disapproved of the gay
presence at St. Francis.
"They have a right to their
feelings," said a middle-aged

into that question at this time,

Michael
Murphkey'*s
music is
his magic.

IF IT'S A
REALLY GOOD
. THIS
MUST
BE

A a Houston concert 11,000
people sang his songs with
him. One of his songs,
"Geronimo's Cadillac," has
developed a cult following
all over the country.
Rolling Stone said of his
work, "lie is that rarity
among songwriters, a
humanist ... he merges the
immediacy of rock music
with a folk consciousness
and a country Sensibility."
Michael Murphey was
born and raised in Texas
and still lives and works
there. In fact, he's the most
noted young songwriter to
have emerged from the
(sei Texas scene ili quite a
while.
And with the releist tf 4his
latest album, "Michael
Murphey," people coast to
coast will be captured by
that ol' Murphy magic.
