KENTUCKY: Christians Rally Against Small Town's LGBT Rights Ordinance

Via the Central Kentucky News:
Danville is considering joining other Kentucky cities that have passed so-called fairness ordinances, making it illegal to discriminate based on sexual orientation or gender identity in cases of employment, housing or public accommodations. The Cornerstone Assembly of God Church in Danville included an insert in its Sunday bulletin urging its congregation to contact commissioners and attend the commission meeting Monday. The insert provides 15 reasons why the church believes Danville should not adopt a fairness ordinance. The insert further contends “it could require business owners to do things against their consciences and have the intimidating effect of requiring business owners to prefer gays over other people to avoid legal action.” “This is also headed towards hate crime speech like they have in Canada,” said Lane. “Up there a pastor said that homosexuality was a sin and he was arrested for a hate crime by preaching in his pulpit.”
Danville has a population of 16,000. Graphic source.
