Nashville on Track for Anti-Discrimination Legislation
The Tennessean (formerly, the Nashville Tennessean) is reporting (here) that the (Nashville/Davidson) Metro Council (consolidated city/county government there) is considering a law to protect gay and lesbian citizens from discrimination in housing, employment, etc. Like Orlando recently passed.
Followers of the Orlando debate will recognize similar roles being played by different actors in the Nashville debate. The law's already passed two of three required readings. I'd expect the usual unnecessary and prejudiced loudness by the opposition followed by third passage.
Prediction: Memphis will follow suit in about twenty years.
