According to Pastor Charles Flowers of Faith Outreach International, the city leaders want to add two categories to the policy: sexual orientation and gender identity.
“The ordinance also says that if you have at any point demonstrated a bias – without defining what a bias is or who will determine whether or not one has been exercised – that you cannot get a city contract,” he tells OneNewsNow. “Neither can any of your subcontractors [who have demonstrated a bias] sign on to the contract.”
Moreover, according to a draft of the revised policy, no one who has spoken out against homosexuality or the transgender lifestyle can run for city council or be appointed to a board. Flowers says the Arizona-based legal firm Alliance Defending Freedom has taken a look at the ordinance.

You all get why this is being done right?
Say I'm Contractor X and I say I hate (insert any group) as loudly as I want. I get a contract from the gov't. That is gov't endorsing me and my backwards views, think of it like vicarious liability.
What's so hard to grasp that the gov't can even be remotely tied to speech/actions which seek to deny liberty to all or denigrate a select few of society?
I'm sure all the white folks here would have no problem with all the contracts going the Black Panthers, right?
How about some right wing Islamists getting all the best jobs and acting the way that all right wing nut jobs act?
Hmmm. Let me look up "shall not be infringed" again. I must be misunderstanding something....
