Christie RE: Mary & Dan's Stand

Christie Wood, president of the Kootenai County Task Force on Human Relations, commented on HuckleberriesOnline over the week:

I read with interest Mary's position on the proposed anti-discrimination ordinance being presented by the Kootenai CountyTask Force on Human Relations. Her statements were very similar to a conversation I had with Councilman Gookin earlier this week. He has made his support for her very public,and they are very good friends so I assume they share similar values. Mary stated she cannot support the ordinance because "There are exceptions for certain groups that don't have to follow that law." Dan told me that he cannot support it for the same reason. Dan made it very clear to me he supports same sex marriage, and equal rights for the LGBT community.He said there should not be an exception in this ordinance for religious organizations because that still allows for discrimination. He asked me to share his thoughts with the Task Force and I have done so. More here.
