FRANKFORT — Kentucky's capital became the fifth city in the state to adopt an ordinance prohibiting discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations based on sexual orientation.
Frankfort passes fairness ordinance with 3-2 vote
"Religious freedom took another beating today in Frankfort, KY. Why are so many convinced that their freedom can only be achieved by taking it away from others?"
Why on earth should religion be allowed to dictate who can work and who cant?

At first I didn't make the connection, but then I realized that under this ordinance, many private business owners can no longer hire and conduct their business in accordance with their religious convictions.
A friend of mine had this to say:
The ordinance provides exemptions for religious institutions. It also includes a provision governing how cases should be handled when an alleged violator holds "a sincerely held religious belief."
