Anti-discrimination ordinance

Even the Indianapolis Star says it is time. Hopefully some of the African-Americans on the council who voted against it last time will re-acquaint themselves with history.

Time for council to do the right thing

Our position: Council should allow time for full debate, but passing discrimination ban is the right thing to do.

Eight months ago, the City-County Council turned away a proposal to give gays and lesbians the same protections against discrimination that other people have in their workplaces and in their housing.

Now, the same questions have returned: Should employers in Marion County be legally allowed to discriminate against workers simply because of their sexual orientation? Should landlords, home sellers or real estate agents be permitted to turn away potential buyers or renters for the same reason?

Fairness dictates that the answer to each question is no.
