FAYETTEVILLE: When an LGBT ordinance comes to town

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (BP) — Although I have been in the ministry nearly 30 years, the Fayetteville ordinance promoting the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) agenda was the first time I felt the need to oppose the local government to stop an action they had taken. On Dec. 9, Fayetteville voters successfully repealed the ordinance, which the city council had enacted on Aug. 19.

And he is a (barely) walking example of why his cause is so crucial, after being shot in the library recently and having no way to defend himself. The group has been lobbying for several years to get the ban on lawful concealed carry of firearms on campus lifted. They argue that in a life-or-death crisis, when seconds count, police being just minutes away is not good enough.
