  • Raining fire and brimstone: The fate of our fair city
In an email to supporters, Tennessee conservative Christian leader David Fowler regrets Nashville's new ban on workplace discrimination against gay and lesbian city workers. The headline of his missive? "Nashville Takes on a New 'Identity.'" Get it?

Fowler presumes to know what Jesus would have thought about the ordinance. He points out that when a woman who was caught in adultery was dragged before Christ by the Pharisees, "I know that Jesus did not say to her, 'Woman, I am sorry that these people do not appreciate your preferences in expressing your sexuality and your understanding of marriage and marital fidelity.'"

So JC would have voted against the discrimination ban if he had been lucky enough to serve on the Metro Council. That settles that. Watch out for raining fire and brimstone.
