Oklahoma City Approves Sexual Orientation Protections

In a 7-2 vote, the Oklahoma City Council approved employment nondiscrimination protections based on sexual orientation. The two dissenting councilmen suggested there is no problem with gay people being discriminated against in the city government. One of the speakers opposed to the measure, Tom Vineyard of Windsor Hills Baptist Church, claimed that half of all murders in large cities are committed by gay people. (HT: Towleroad.)
