All throughout the LGBT community, Louisiana’s trans woman Pamela Ranitree, is being celebrated for her incredible speech which sustained Shreveport, LA’s LGBT non-discrimination ordinance which was under threat of repeal.
Raintree confronted Councilman Ron Webb, the single dissenting vote against the ordinance, which passed in Decemberm and the mastermind behind the repeal of the law.
Raintree brought a stone with her to the council meeting and said, “ Levitivus 20:13 states, ‘If a man lie also with mankind as he lieth with a woman, they shall surely put him to death.’ I brought the first stone Mr. Webb, in case that your Bible talk isn’t just a smoke screen for personal prejudices.”
KMSSTV.com reports that after hearing Raintree’s speech, Webb withdrew his proposal to repeal the Fairness Ordinance, a move that received unanimous support.
