demonstrators at an assembly meeting for an anti discrimination law for gays
30 seconds in, there's the main opinion that I got when I was there and asked why people were against this law being passed. I was there two nights ago to speak but this list was so long that I didnt get a chance to. I might go next week though to speak.
70% of the crowd were in red shirts (opposing this law) and the rest were in blue (supporting it).
All this law is saying is that you cant fire or deny a gay person the job if theyre qualified just because of their sexuality. And you cant evict or deny a person housing just because of their sexual orientation. A lot of the people opposing seem to think it would allow transgendered women in to the women's bathroom where they would be able to watch other women go to the bathroom, or molest little kids. And church leaders oppose this because they wouldnt be able to deny a gay person a job at their church, unless they give up their tax exempt status.
