Houston ‘bathroom bill’: Voters reject LGBT ordinance

November 4, 2015   |   Category: Prophecy News   |   Tags: , ,

Houston voters have rejected moves to enact protections for transgender and gay people after a divisive campaign that has lasted more than a year.
The Houston Equal Rights Ordinance would have extended protection over housing, employment and other areas.
Voters rejected the ordinance by a margin of 62% to 38%, Houston news channel KHOU reported.
In the most contested portion, the move would have allowed transgender people to use toilets of their choosing.
Opponents feared that the so-called “bathroom bill” would have allowed sexual predators into women’s toilets.
“I don’t know why anyone would think that men going into a women’s bathroom or swimming pool or locker room would be a good idea,” Susan Hunter, who voted against the ordinance, said on Tuesday.
“It’s not safe and these people need to find another solution,” she said.
