“Yes. Just because the LGBT community isn’t getting justice at the moment, they shouldn’t have sour grapes. It doesn’t reflect well on the maturity of the community. They’d have a better chance of getting justice if they didn’t try to remove the city workers.”
“Yes. Any group that wants to participate should have that right. I realize the LGBT community is understand-ably upset.
But you’re not accomplishing anything by denying other groups their right to participate. Two wrongs don’t make a right.”
“No. Pull out the workers of that city. It’s outrageous to exclude LGBT people — just because of the way they were born. City workers shouldn’t be part of that. I’m all in favor of the civil rights of the LGBT community.”
“No. A city shouldn’t support an organization that’s not inclusive of the queer community. That’s not fair. The city workers can march individually, but not as a group. Otherwise, it sends the wrong message that the city doesn’t support the queer community.”
