Conroe, December 13 – While incurring the wrath of liberal Montgomery County Judge Craig Doyal who had sponsored Montgomery County Adoption Day and Adoption proclamations that included language supporting transgender adoptions, Precinct 4 County Commissioner Jim Clark yesterday faced the anti-family “grinch” and led the move to amend those proclamations by removing the pro-transgender and pro-same-sex adoption language. Doyal had tricked the Commissioners Court into supporting such adoptions as apart of the pro-adoption proclamations during the November 14, 2017, meeting.
Doyal clearly was irked that Clark wouldn’t back down from trying to remove the offensive anti-family language from Doyal’s November 14 proclamations. When it became apparent that Clark wouldn’t withdraw his motion, Doyal called upon a lady from Georgia in the audience who spoke in favor of transgender and same-sex adoptions “because the children approve of those adoptions.”
After Doyal’s attempt to make the anti-family argument didn’t work through the lady from Georgia, Doyal called on one of his political supporters who, once again, apologized for the anti-family language in the adoption proclamations which she and Doyal and put forward on November 14 and asked the Commissioners Court to adopt Clark’s motion by excising the offensive language from the pro-adoption resolutions.
At that point, Clark’s motion passed by a unanimous vote of the Commissioners Court, so that transgender adoptions are no longer the favored policy of the representatives of the citizens of Montgomery County. It shouldn’t have been that difficult.
Clark explained, “I have always been a big supporter of adoptions. The proclamation that the Commissioners Court passed, however, doesn’t reflect the values that I believe or those of the people of Montgomery County. As a Commissioner, I want to clarify that the Commissioners Court supports adoptions but doesn’t necessarily support adoptions by transgender or other groups. We’re pro-family and don’t support anti-family values.”
What Clark had to correct
On November 14, 2017, Doyal tricked the Commissioners Court into supporting unanimously two proclamations in favor of transgender adoptions of children. After this newspaper reported the story on Thursday, November 16, there was a gigantic citizen outcry for the Commissioners Court to amend the pro-transgender adoption resolutions – tucked in two proclamations favoring adoptions in general.
Many citizens had even called for an emergency Commissioners Court meeting to rescind or amend the pro-transgender adoption proclamation. Doyal sponsored the resolutions. A close friend of Doyal’s read the two proclamations aloud during the November 14 meeting. The Commissioners Court then voted unanimously to support the resolutions, including the transgender adoption language. Amazingly, Doyal and each County Commissioner then signed the two proclamations to show their support of them.
After the citizen outcry against Doyal, his close friend and political contributor Terri Jaggers, who also receives substantial funds from Montgomery County’s government (and, of course, taxpayers), produced a video where she took the blame for the offensive proclamations. Jaggers, about whom this newspaper was unaware prior to her November 17 video, apologized to Doyal, to the County Commissioners, to the Publisher of this newspaper, and to the community for the offensive language in the two proclamations. Nevertheless, Jaggers later went on the attack against The Golden Hammer for bringing the two proclamations to the attention of the readers and other citizens of Montgomery County.
During a Montgomery County Tea Party meeting on November 20, 2017, Clark made clear that he wouldn’t have supported the two proclamations if Doyal had not hidden the anti-family language from the Commissioners Court prior to the meeting.
On November 21, 2017, the Texas Pastors Council, a leading pro-family organization, issued a letter condemning the Montgomery County Commissioners Court adoption proclamations due to the “anti-family social agenda” language contained in those unanimously-passed documents. The Council called for the Commissioners Court to take swift corrective action to remove the offensive language from the two otherwise pro-adoption resolution.
Doyal ignored the clamor of Montgomery County citizens and of the Texas Pastors Council. As a result, Clark had to take charge and get the anti-family policy excised from Montgomery County’s government.
