El Paso City Council Snaps A “Z” At Pastor Tom Brown! – Repeals Anti-Gay Ordinance

Things got a little heated at City Council yesterday, but it had nothing to do with the triple digit temperature. Mayor John Cook had to break a tie to undo what voters did last November, namely, taking away benefits from about 100 people.

A group calling themselves El Pasoans for Traditional Family Values, didn’t like that gay and unmarried partners of city employees were offered health benefits, and they got an ordinance passed to stop that. Problem was, the ordinance was so vaguely worded that it hooked a lot of other people in the “we don’t like you so we want to cast you into eternal damnation, or the hell that is no health insurance benefits” net.

I guess the EPFTFV-ers are worried that giving benefits to the partners of gay city employee is just a hop, skip, and a jump away from providing the legal protection of marriage to those same partners.

I don’t know if that is true or not, but for Pastor Tom Brown to say, tough luck to retirees who worked hard for the city and foster children of city employees because he doesn’t like gay people is pretty un-Christian.

I thought Jesus said He was here to save people, people like tax collectors and prostitutes that people were shocked He even talked to.

Perhaps Pastor Brown and his group should re-read the Bible and stop judging people.

There is only one person is the ultimate Judge, and you ain’t Him, Pastor Brown.

Good job, City Council. You did the right thing.
