San Antonio Preparing to Arrest Christians Who Speak Out on the Bible

The San Antonio City Council is about to adopt an ordinance that could get any Christian arrested for preaching the Bible or sharing their faith. They are looking at passing some nondiscrimination ordinances that would make it a crime to exhibit or express any form of bias that could offend someone. The proposed ordinance says:
“No person shall be appointed to a position if the city council finds that such person has, prior to such proposed appointment, engaged in discrimination or demonstrated a bias, by word or deed, against any person, group or organization on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, age, or disability.”
Anyone found guilty of violating the new ordinance would be given a lifetime ban from being able to hold a city job, being involved with city government or even doing business with the city.
In other words, if a Christian works for the city as a garbage collector or street repair and they tell someone that the Bible says homosexuality is a sin, they could lose their job for expressing their bias. Or, if you contracted with the city to provide a service, say computer maintenance or repair and you quoted what the Bible says about homosexuality, you could lose your contract with the city.

I say bring back gladiatorial

I say bring back gladiatorial arenas. As long as "Christians" are going to scream about how persecuted they are, might as well get our money's worth.

self refuting law.

"The proposed ordinance says:
“No person shall be appointed to a position if the city council finds that such person has, prior to such proposed appointment, engaged in discrimination or demonstrated a bias, by word or deed, against any ... religion, ...”"

So basically, whoever supports this ordinance is guilty of what it addresses and should be removed from office.

I could also see this being abused with false accusations used to remove people from office.

Where does it say arrest anyone?

It's still stupid but I don't see any mention of arrest or fining.
It's pretty much a too intrusive job application.

There is some community in MA, I think Middleboro(I could be wrong on the town), that passed an ordinance banning swearing in public parks and proposed a fine for doing so.

Settlers came from Europe to escape religious persecution.

Now their descendents spit on their ancestors by accepting this nonsense.

We live in an ever increasing immoral society.

This is not the first instance of suppression of truth and will by no means be the last.
