Voting with your conscience

Editor:
Seat 1 for city commissioner has Mary Gray Black, Andy Guyette and Joshua Lindsey. Black said that she would not support any anti-discrimination legislation that supports “lifestyles contrary to God’s will.”

Guyette said that he will oppose any legislation adding sexual orientation to a city anti-discrimination law. He did say that he would support a Largo law requiring that all Largo

citizens “love their neighbor.” But that he could not support a law that included the term “sexual orientation.”

I know that you cannot pass a law that can make my boss love me. The city commissioners can pass a law that my boss cannot fire me based on my sexual orientation. Lindsey also states that he will not support any anti-discrimination laws that include sexual orientation and gender identity.

So here I am, a Largo resident; a 100-percent service-connected disabled Vietnam Veteran that happens to be a transgendered person; a member of the Unitarian Universalists Church. I have three candidates to serve as my city commissioner, who all can quote the Bible but have not ever read the U.S. Constitution. I have a choice of a woman who calls my existence “contrary to God’s will,” a man who is in favor of loving the neighbor that he is discriminating against or a third man that is all in favor of discriminating against my kind.

The other choice is voting with your conscience. You see God’s greatest gift to mankind was a conscience. Largo is a city full of diverse and wonderful fair-minded people; think of one of them, then write him or her in. At least for Seat 2 there is a decent, fair-minded man that deserves to sit on the city commission. Good luck, Mr. Woods.
