Perkins Cheers Defeat Of Billings Bill

"It was well after 3:00 a.m., but to people in Billings, Montana, it was never too late to stand up to the forces of political correctness. Thanks to Mayor Tom Hanel, that's exactly what the largest city in the state did -- beating back a dangerous bathroom bill that would have literally opened the doors of Billings's public showers, locker rooms, and restrooms to both genders in a misguided show of 'tolerance.' After a 15-year fight, the council killed the proposal 6-5, with Mayor Hanel casting the deciding vote. 'I needed to ask myself, is this fair to everyone, beneficial to everyone? Will it build goodwill and friendships? I can't say for sure,' he told the crowded room in the early hours of Tuesday morning. The Montana Family Foundation, which has pushed back against these campaigns for a decade and a half, said the Left is only lobbying for these ordinances in places like Billings to '(target) Christians and other religious groups who find the homosexual/LGBT lifestyle morally objectionable.'" - Hate group leader Tony Perkins, via press release.
