Talk about calling a blowhard's bluff. A city council member in Shreveport abandoned his push to repeal an LGBT-inclusive anti-discrimination ordinance, after an outcry that included a transgender woman who dared him to stone her to death.
The ordinance, which prohibits discrimination in housing and employment within city limits based on sexual orientation and gender identity, passed 6-1 in December after a successful campaign by pro-LGBT group Be Fair Shreveport. The solo "no" vote came from Councilman Ron Webb, who said "The Bible tells you homosexuals are an abomination," adding he didn't socialize with LGBT people.
After Webb drafted a repeal, dozens gathered to voice their , but none were so effective as transwoman Pamela Raintree, who dared the councilman back up his Bible quotes and stone her to death.
"Leviticus 20:13 states, 'If a man also lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, they shall surely put him to death,'" Raintree began. "I brought the first stone, Mr. Webb, in case that your Bible talk isn't just a smoke screen for personal prejudices." Webb withdrew his repeal just minutes later, not evening calling for a vote.
Watch Raintree shut that ass down like a boss below.
