Sleazemouth of the Week
Holladay, UT – The Holladay City Council has begun deliberating on whether to copy Salt Lake City and adopt non-discrimination ordinances to protect against discrimination based on sexual orientation and/or gender identity. But councilman Barry Topham says that the law would hurt him because he WANTS to discriminate. Welcome to Holladay.
Barry Topham is a walking definition of hypocrisy, in one breath he shows his naivete by claiming “We have so many problems in this city,” said Topham, adding that discrimination against the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender community is not one of them. “I don’t know why we’re discussing this.” And without even thinking or considering his bigotry, he adds “I think you should be able to discriminate if you don’t want a cross-dresser living in your house,.”
If you live in Holladay FIGHT BACK NOW! This kind of bigotry cannot go un-marked. LGBT Activist Jim Dabakis has already written Councilman Topham (copy of his letter below). Go write him yourself at the info below!
