Ron Brown does not speak for Christians or Christianity. He speaks for Ron Brown.
An opinion on an anti-discrimination ordinance has nothing to do with Faith.
Ron Brown may believe that homosexuality is a sin, but there are many Christians who don't agree with him. Of course, there are many who do.
Either way, discriminating against any group is wrong. Homosexuality will continue with or without Ron Brown's opinion. However, too many opinions such as his has allowed a group of people to be discriminated against.
And yes, they are a distinct group. We made them so by ostracizing them in a messed up interpretation of the Bible.
PS -- Mods, shouldn't this be in the Cafe?

Take your blinders off people. davey is not comparing pedophiles to homosexuals. He's contending the statement that no group should be discriminated against. Agree or disagree with that but don't get on his case because you come to the table predisposed to voice your anti-homophobia.
