Cincinnati group throws in towel; should towel refuse to dry us because we're gay, punishment now a possibility

by Jeremy Hooper

The group Equal Rights Not Special Rights (headed by prominent Ohio anti-gay activist Phil Burress) has given up their effort to repeal a Cincinnati ordinance banning discrimination against the city's LGBT folks.

Encouraging.

The group made the decision upon realizing they weren't going to have enough petition signatures for their effort to go to referendum (plus many of the sigs were revealed to be forgeries). Here's hoping they now wise up and realize that what their group's name implied they were striving for is exactly what the ordinance already provides.
