Concerned citizen Nicolette Lucak on why Metro Council should defeat Megan Barry's nondiscrimination ordinance:
As a concerned citizen and Christian, I am very disturbed by the proposal that Metro government relinquish its' right not to hire homosexuals into the departments it governs. Of particular concern are those related to family, educational and community development where the presence of a homosexual could negatively influence traditional, Godly values.
The Holy Bible, the uncontestable word of God, makes very clear that homosexuality is an abomination. Making special provisions for those that engage in this sin not only promotes it, but places Metro government in opposition with God's laws. The Bible not only contains very clear warnings about the consequences of homosexuality, but God clearly warns all those who simply "tolerate" or "approve of " it will be held just as accountable as those who engage it in.
Please understand that I have no hatred for homosexual individuals. As a Christian, I love them and, therefore, pray that they will come to realize their sin, repent for it, and turn from it. I also pray that you personally will state your opposition to this sin and not provide a comfortable means for individuals to continue in it.
