Gays and lesbians didn't have human rights before now?

{It applies to employment, housing and public accommodations, such as hotels and restaurants.}

Will religious organizations be affected by the new law?

Gee I thought gays and lesbians had rights due to the fact they were people. Guess they are not people anymore, just preferences...

"all five city officials who voted are Catholics."

LOL, Bablefish got it wrong. They aren't Catholics, they're communists.

"After the vote, commissioners sat quietly during almost 30 seconds of a standing ovation. Bamberger said his goal was that everybody be treated equally. "For the many people who opposed the ordinance -- and I received a lot of input from those people, and I appreciate that input -- I wish that they would take the time now. I wish they would review that ordinance, and look at it, and see if they still have any concerns about it."

They vigorously opposed the ordinance and now this bozo wants them to study it some and see if they still have concerns? These people are insane!

" "No one would choose to be discriminated against, no one would choose to be hated, no one would choose to be treated differently," Edmondson said.

They do choose to butt in where they aren't welcome. They choose to stick their lifestyles in other people's faces. Now, the communists on the city council are forcing everyone to be quiet and accept whatever is being forced in their face. Just pay your taxes and shut up.

"And someday, I believe the city of Covington will have a small piece in that understanding, of creating tolerance, bridging the gap, and more importantly, allowing people to know that yes, a small city like Covington can show the entire region: Yes, we can."

We can do whatever we want. We worked hard to anesthetize the minds of the folks that elected us. We will not tolerate dissention. For now on, we're going to be one big happy cesspool.

Covington's new law bans discrimination based on age, sexual orientation, marital status and parental status. It applies to employment, housing and public accommodations, such as hotels and restaurants.

With no definition for sexual orientation what sexual orientation group will be next to claim discrimination?

So all those companies can move to Cleveland - we don't have such overreaching ordinances.

• Fines could range from $100-$250, and a business which willfully violated the law three or more times could lose its business license.

I can imagine the future - homosexuals purposely acting really weird, they get fired, claim it's discrimination, the poor business owner gets fined, they do it again a couple of times, he either loses his business or has to tolerate unacceptable behavior or attitudes from his employees.

Reminds me of the sodomy case in Texas - the two sodomists on purpose called the police to their house, left the door open, and were on purpose committing sodomy so the police could see. I can see the future and it is not pretty.

Folks, I think it's about time to do some serious activist freeping on the right side of this issue, where ever we live. If we don't stand up, do whatever we can do, pretty soon sodomy is going to be shoved in our faces and we are going to see hell on earth.

And one of the salient features of the homosexual "rights" crap is that the majority of Americans feel that homosexual acts ARE weird, sickening and wrong. But the kids are being indoctrinated in school, so we don't have much time to turn this sick tide around.

"Covington city commissioners Tuesday unanimously supported a new human rights ordinance which extends protections to gays and lesbians. "I guess the basic question that needs to be asked is should we allow discrimination in this community?" said Commissioner Jerry Bamberger. "The answer is no."


How about equal rights for sado-masochists, paedophiles, sheep-lovers, etc? This has reached the point of absurdity. Homosexuality is a perversion - clear and simple, and its time the public demanded pandering politicians stop catering to these freaks.

It expands a city law which prohibited housing discrimination

If I were a landlord I wouldn't want faggots living in my building. An old girlfriend of mine had a coupla real swishy types living right next to her in an apt complex, and without getting into too much detail, let's just say the noises we heard were disgusting beyond description.

I think that landlords should be able to discrimminate against anyone for any reason.

Garbage like this is the only reason I support Texas in the case before the Supreme Court.

How does someone 'proove' they are gay or lesbian? Do they have to have a public sex act? or do their words get taken at face value?
If it's face-value we can all use this: as soon as someone does something we don't like we can all say 'I'm being discriminated because I'm gay' even if we are not .
The problem with this is then clear: these are not human rights (which, by the way do not exist; only civil rights exist, these apply to all citizens, and are not natural but cultural, and valid only if upheld by the state) but special rights, granted to a minority on the basis of 'alleged' sexual preferences.
The truth is this kind of legislation discriminates all other groups.

There is that phrase again,sexual orientation.

That could cover a lot of things, animals, children, etc

One day, probably not very far off, the letter of the law and not the spirit of the law will set this issue on its head.

Well, I want protection because I am a male chauvinist... I want my rights. If gay folk get to get it on and have their rights protected, I want my rights protected as a pig!!!
