After failing to pass a non-discrimination ordinance in March of last year, Charlotte remains one of the largest cities in the country not to have full LGBT protections in place for its citizens. That may soon change.
There’s been gnashing of teeth. Fingers pointed. Accusations made. Debate on what should or should not have happened when Charlotte City Council voted on LGBT-inclusive non-discrimination ordinances has been a hot topic for the past few weeks, ever since the proposals’ rejection on March 2.
Readers respond to the death of Black Brockington, the non-discrimination ordinance and religious freedom issues.
Humor, like beauty, might well be in the eye of the beholder. And the entries in the Charlotte Observer’s 20th limericks reader contest might well provoke a laugh or scorn, especially on entries focusing in on recent debates on an LGBT non-discrimination ordinance rejected by City Council on March 2.
