Default Bill James on gays: "We Don't Want Them Here"

Anti-LGBT Amendment Proponents Reveal Their True Purpose — Equality North Carolina (http://equalitync.org/news1/anti-lgbt-amendment-proponents-reveal-their-true-purpose - broken link)

Sounds like rhetoric that would come out of a small town in Mississippi, not a major city of almost 750,000 residents. This is beyond typical anti-gay rhetoric from Republicans...its hate speech. No wonder Charlotte has the stereotype as a bastion of extreme conservatism and homophobia. How is this guy able to get away with stuff like this? If it happened up north, he would be pressured into resigning.

Yes, it was back in December. It got quite heated at times. Why is Bill James still in office?

This has nothing to do with North or South.

Newsflash bro... but this isn't the case. Charlotte is a liberal/democrat majority city now....

Yeah, I think it was one of those 'Are gays welcome in Charlotte?', ones.
Please, please, enough with the homophobia accusations. There's plenty of heterophobia going on, just look at prime time TV.
