SAN ANTONIO – The 7th-largest city in the United States might soon implement a non-discrimination policy that would ban individuals who have expressed disapproval of homosexuality from serving in city government positions.
Late last month, the San Antonio City Council officially proposed changes to the city’s non-discrimination code. The revised ordinance is 21 pages long, and features a couple of highly controversial measures that have generated significant attention after being brought to light.
Of these policy changes, the most controversial measure is a suggested revision to the charter’s “Prior Discriminatory Acts” section that could seriously jeopardize Bible-believing Christians’ ability to hold positions in the San Antonio city government.
“No person shall be appointed to a position,” the proposed ordinance states, “if the City Council finds that such person has, prior to such proposed appointment, engaged in discrimination or demonstrated a bias, by word or deed, against any person, group or organization on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, age, or disability.” Click here to continue reading.
