In an email today, the Louisiana Family Forum has alerted us to an ordinance introduced by the Baton Rouge Metro Council. This little piece of social engineering is supposed to unite “One Baton Rouge” under the banner of “fairness.”
That’s another one of those words that ought to set off your alarm bells when a politician uses it. Here’s how the LFF describes the proposed new law.
“A so-called ‘fairness’ ordinance was reintroduced to the Metro Council on July 23rd as a ‘slight modification’ to previous efforts cleverly titled ‘One Baton Rouge.'”
Yes, they’re going to make us all “one.” Or else.
“This ordinance, unlike its predecessor, boldly goes into every private civil conversation and contract. It is aimed at providing special protections for ‘sexual orientation’ (voluntary homosexual and bisexual contact) and ‘gender identity’ not based on biological gender at birth but ‘internal sense of gender.’ It should be more accurately called the Homosexual Affirmation Ordinance.”
How do these people ever get elected? Do they fool the voters into thinking they’re just public-spirited individuals who want to get into office so they can do wonderful things for their city, state, or country?
I find it impossible to believe that the citizens of Baton Rouge have been clamoring for more “rights” for homosexuals and hopelessly addled characters who think they belong to some sex other than the one for which their bodies are naturally equipped.
How do they mean to enforce this “fairness”? Are they going to confiscate people’s Bibles? Tell ministers and priests what they can say or can’t say from the pulpit? Set up “sensitivity training” courses for everyone who is a bit slow to celebrate the glories of sodomy?
I guess we’ll find out soon enough.
I do not understand why local, state, and national governments throughout the Western world crusade for sodomy. They have gone all gaga for it, as if it were the very pinnacle of cultural evolution.
People, is this really, truly what you want?

Somehow calling sin virtue is supposed to give Baton Rouge a leg up in the global economy, blah-blah.
Sorry! Can’t get the link to work. I tried.
