WATCH: Gay Missouri Man Encourage Repeal of Equality Ordinance


If you think non-discrimination ordinances are no longer controversial, just see what's happening in Springfield.

Voters in Missouri's third-largest city will decide on Tuesday whether to dismantle a discrimination ordinance that protects LGBT people in matters of employment, housing, and public accommodations.

Springfield's city council in October added sexual orientation and gender identity to the groups protected by its already-existing non-discrimination ordinance. Missouri only offers protections to gay and bisexual people who are employed by the state.

While expected characters like local megachurch pastor John Lindell is pushing for Springfield residents to overturn the ordinance, a local gay man filmed a video that endorses the same thing. The man, named Silas, claims that the ordinance will force antigay businesses to do things they don't want. Why that unlikely scenario is worth having LGBT people fired and tossed from their apartments is not clear. Watch the video below via JoeMyGod:
