Revolt! Now voters torpedo special treatment for 'gays'

Only days after flip-flops by Indiana and Arkansas to provide special treatment for homosexuals, voters in another U.S. state have just decided to "man up," and move in the opposite direction ...

Reject city's plan of recognition for sexual orientation, gender identity

Only days after Indiana rushed through a change in its state law amid a backlash led by homosexual-rights groups and Arkansas reacted by modifying a similar law before it was adopted, voters in Springfield, Missouri, have moved the opposite direction.

The city repealed an “anti-discrimination” law adopted only months ago.

In the election this week, 51.4 percent of voters decided to reject the law, which had been adopted by the Springfield City Council in October.

Opponents had quickly organized a successful petition drive to force the public vote.

“The churches were startled and alarmed and began to get involved (in the ordinance repeal),” Calvin Morrow, who was part of a Christian group advocating for repeal, told Associated Press. “They were the target.”

He questioned whether there was “discrimination” against homosexuals in Springfield and told AP the dispute divided the city.

Opponents of the repeal said they would continue to work to make Springfield “a welcoming place for all people.”

Courtesy of PROMO Signs hung at a business in Springfield, Mo., express support for upholding a local non-discrimination measure for LGBT residents, which was repealed on April 7, 2015.

Like recent political battles in Indiana and Arkansas, the fight pitted Christians against the LGBT community

Residents in Missouri’s third largest city narrowly voted Tuesday to repeal protections for LGBT residents that had been put in place six months before. The vote in Springfield drew passionate campaigners on both sides, pitting Christians worried that their faith was being steamrolled against supporters of LGBT rights, echoing recent political battles over religious freedom restoration laws in Indiana and Arkansas.
