I would also like to say to Councilman Ed Shadid, in response to his remarks that they will be judged later: Sir, according to God’s word, you have already been judged by the vote you cast.
There was no need for this vote. If there is any group in this city or our nation that no longer has to fear discrimination, it is the LGBT community. It is just another move toward their goal to become a special class of citizens forcing the rest of us to embrace their lifestyle against our own conscience.
This was a move by Shadid to reward many of his constituents that support him faithfully. I commend the two councilmen who voted against this unnecessary and very controversial change in policy.
