Opposition Remains to Anti Discrimination Plan

By KTSA News Staff

Several groups that have voiced opposition to the proposed changes in the city's anti-discrimination ordinance are clarifying their positions. 

"The city should not be criminalizing the different views of the churches. Some churches say homosexuality is good--others say asexuality and homosexuality is bad" said Justice Foundation President Allen Parker--who told 550 KTSA News he's not satisfied with changes made in the language of the proposal.  

"They have left in the part that says if you are on a board--then you can not discriminate by word or deed against any sexual orientation or gender identity" Parker said.  

Also clarifying his position is Cornerstone Curch Senior Pastor and Founder John Hagee--who in a statement said a number of concerns remain--and efforts should continue to insure the ordinance in no way discriminates against people of faith.
