OMAHA, NE – Omaha’s LGBT Community endured a harrowing public hearing Tuesday, March 6th over Ben Gray’s Equal Employment Ordinance which would add sexual orientation and gender identity to the city’s list of protected classes. National LGBT Blog Towleroad and local blog Aksarbent both covered great stories on this as well! Many members of the LGBT Community and their straight allies spoke in favor of the ordinance, telling stories of harassment, hiding and frivilous termination over their sexual orientation or gender identity. They also had to endure tales of ignorance, hate, bigotry and outright religious quackery from the ordinance’s lesser informed opponents.
Perhaps these lesser informed opponents could explain just what the hell STD’s have to do with workplace discrimination and when the last time God sent floods and tornadoes to destroy a city for homosexuality? Of course, there is the Old Testament, but even after the so called Great Flood, God promised not to destroy the world in that fashion again. That’s when God gave the gays the rainbow! LOL Where in the New Testament did God ever send floods and tornadoes to destroy? You know what he did send down? Jesus. Why? Because he loves ALL of us. Funny how these so called Christians will single out one sin from the Bible and go on a crusade.
These hypocrites can tell us that homosexuality is a sin. Great! Where does it say that in The Constitution? It doesn’t, and court rulings have ruled that religious freedom grants others freedom FROM religion and that since the government will not establish a state religion, that inherently creates a separation of church and state. Why is that so hard? Also, council members like Thompson, Gernandt, and Mulligan want to hear the facts about the issue, since when did religious quackery become the facts to decide a civil issue? Dear religious quacks, please bring proof that God even exists. Thank you.
A number of these enlightened and lesser informed opponents formed some sort of Omaha based Axis of Evil who call themselves the Nebraska Heritage Coalition. Several members of the anti-gay Nebraska Heritage Coalition thanked Mean Jean Stothert. Apparently, to get it all started took just one political booty call.
