Haters are hellbent on stealing LGBT protections from the folks in Plano, Texas.
Yesterday, these bigots claimed to have gather the right amount of signatures to force the Plano City Council to repeal the the non-discrimination ordinance or put it on the ballot.
They needed about 3,822 signatures, they claim to have 7,000.
“We applaud the citizens of Plano who turned out to have their voices heard on this important religious liberty issue,” said Gregg Wooding, a spokesman for the Liberty Institute, a Plano-based non-profit legal organization.
Plano City Secretary Lisa Henderson confirmed today that she received the petitions and now must verify all the signatures.
On Dec. 8, the Plano City Council approved an ordinance extending anti-discrimination rights to people regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
