The group working to repeal Fayetteville’s contentious “nondiscrimination” ordinance has released a flyer designed to be included in church bulletins.
The insert identifies some of the problems of the ordinance and highlights the unintended consequences Americans have experienced elsewhere as a result of this type of legislation, writing,
“[In] Fayetteville Chapter 119 dictates the criteria by which churches hire their own staff for ‘secular’ roles. [In] San Antonio the original ordinance would have barred anyone speaking against homosexuality for appointed office. [In] Houston the [supporters of the ordinance] subpoenaed all sermons, emails & text messages of pastors who stood against them.”
This bulletin insert is a good resource for any church or minister wishing to inform people about the “nondiscrimination” ordinance in Fayetteville and the effort to repeal the ordinance on December 9.
