Recently, several impossible events have happened here in Oklahoma City:
1– 5.6 magnitude earthquake
2– Abbie rides motorcycles
3– OKC add sexual orientation to nondiscrimination policy
END TIMES! END TIMES!!!!!
Just last week, it was entirely legal for, say, an OKC fire department, not to hire someone because they thought the applicant was gay.
It would not have been be legal for them to not hire someone just because they are female.
It would not have been be legal for them to not hire someone just because they were Hispanic.
It would not have been be legal for them to not hire someone just because they were Catholic.
But if the person doing the hiring even *thought* an applicant was gay, and didnt hire them for that reason (or fired them, or whatever), that would have been totally fine.
And thats still totally fine on a state and federal level.
But its no longer fine in Oklahoma City– The OKC city council added sexual orientation to the citys nondiscrimination policy.
While this is wonderful news, this post would not be complete without copy/pasting some of the comments from the ‘dissenting’ politicians and citizens for us all to laugh at.
Great example? Skip Kelly:
Councilmen Skip Kelly and Larry McAtee voted against the measure saying they see no discrimination against gays in city offices and that federal and state law don’t provide explicit protection to gay people.
Im sure you all can appreciate the obvious irony of an African American denying other minorities nondiscrimination protections. Im sure lots of white folks didnt see no discrimination against blacks 100 years ago, either, Skippy. Discrimination and prejudice make lovely blinders, so you dont have to see how you are treating a fellow human.
But what you non-Oklahomans might not know is that Skippy here has a fancy for getting plastered and weaving his car through traffic at 90 mph. So just so we are clear, here, I totally believe Skippy. I dont think he cares at all about this topic. I dont think Skippy gives a rats ass about any human. Why would he care about discrimination of homosexuals in the work place when he doesnt even care about potentially killing a car full of Girl Scouts, an infinitely worse crime?
His BFF and fellow dissenter Larry McAtee had this to say about Skippys DUI:
“I hold Skip Kelly as a friend,” McAtee said. “As his friend, I intend to stand by him and be of whatever assistance I can be as he works through this. I’m hurt that it happened to him, and I’m hurt for his family.”
Uuuuuuuuum… nothing happened *to* Skippy. Skippy actively made the choice to 1) get drunk, 2) drive his car, and 3) drive at reckless speeds. No one held a gun to his head and forced him to do that. SKIPPY did that, completely and utterly of his own volition.
Know who *I* feel sorry for? The poor sap who saw a maniac driver, thought they were going to literally watch someone get killed (maybe themselves), and could do nothing about it but call 911 and watch in horror. How helpless must that person have felt? How scared? But no, McAtee, you feel sorry for your poor, poor BFF who fucked up and got caught, and is lucky as HELL he didnt kill anyone. Poor, poor Skippy, amirite?
Skippy and McAtee are obviously freaks with twisted morals, and yet here they are in a position to withhold legal protections from people who do nothing wrong, but who are accused of being freaks with twisted morals. Ugh.
But this isnt even the best part. No, the most deliciously idiotic tid-bit come out of the debate over whether it should be okay to fire a cop cause you think shes gay (but not because shes a woman!) is this one, from a
complete psycho ‘pastor’ Tom Vineyard. Quote:
Pastor Tom Vineyard of Windsor Hills Baptist Church cited a New York judge in saying more than half of murders in large cities are committed by gay people.
Many homosexuals openly admit that they are pedophiles because they cannot actually reproduce. They resort to recruiting children. … Folks, you’re making a decision that will bring down God’s judgment on your city if you vote in favor of this.
Yeah, no, homosexuals obviously dont need any discrimination protection here in Oklahoma City.
