...the conservative council-member was calling for a repeal of the city’s anti-discrimination ordinance, which bans discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity... The lone dissenting vote came from right-wing councilman Ron Webb, who said that he opposes the non-discrimination law because “The Bible tells you homosexuals are an abomination.”...Pamela Raintree, a transgender woman who quoted the Bible to Webb, saying, “Leviticus 20:13 states, ‘If a man also lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, they shall surely put him to death,’” she said. “I brought the first stone, Mr. Webb, in case that your Bible talk isn’t just a smoke screen for personal prejudices.”

Minutes later, Webb withdrew his resolution without calling for a vote.

That is so badass!
It doesn't make sense to let go of something you've had for so long.  But it also doesn't make sense to hold on when there's actually nothing there.

Good for her.

This thread is about lab-grown dicks, not some mincy, old, British poof of an actor.

May every plaintiff in every court action provide a stone as evidence for a demonstration.

Hoisted by his own hypocrisy and bigotry. It should happen more often. Good for the woman who called him on his nonsense.

Cafeteria Christianity. Coward.
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.
