AKSARBENT had stupidly turned the camera off when Jane got up to object to passage of Lincoln's new LGBT ordinance. We didn't record Councilman Adam Hornung shutting her down as he firmly explained that no further comment was allowed after the vote.
No matter. Jane was prepared (at 14:10) with material on other important matters, such as:
- dietary tips to ward off Alzheimer's,
- the necessity of psychological counseling for everyone,
- bike lanes, and
- Nebraska Atty. General Jon Bruning's refusal to answer her letters.
We're not so crazy about the most of the people below, whose nasty antigay testimony in Lincoln was even meaner than a similar effort recently in Omaha. The Christian outpouring was a calculated, coordinated and cynical character assassination of an entire class of people and filled with lies and/or preposterous exaggeration from start to finish. Here's a big helping of the contrived contempt, with some bittersweet encouragement at the end.
UPDATE: Family First, Focus on the Family's Nebraska "affiliate" and the Nebraska Family Council say they will start gathering signatures to force a referendum on the ordinance. Expect a jihad of scare tactics like the ones above. Here are some of the fear tactics that the Nebraska Family Council is employing on its web site targeting business owners.
Below is video of the testimony of Hannah Buell, of the Nebraska Family Council, which said it will attempt a referendum to dump LGBT employment and public accommodations protection in Lincoln. The very first example she cites has nothing to do with LGBT laws — employers have long had the right to fire employees who publicly excoriate the policies and core values of their employers.
