In what surely has to rank high on the all-time bigotry scale, Largo City, FL., this week arrested the head of Equality Florida for doing nothing worse than attempting to pass out a flier. The City Commission then trumped that by firing its veteran city manager for publicly stating that she was transitioning from male to female.
As if that wasn't enough, the Sun-Sentinel newspaper reports this incredible quote about the firing of the city manager:
"If Jesus was here tonight, I can guarantee you he'd want him terminated," said Pastor Ron Saunders of Largo's Lighthouse Baptist Church. "Make no mistake about it."
Actually, if Jesus had attended that mob scene of a City Commission meeting, I think he would have been appalled.
And so it goes...
