PB Processes Start in 6 Cities
PB in the U.S. started in Chicago and this year we’re excited to see new and long standing Alderman step up their commitment to community power. This year, 5 new ward processes join to create a total of 8 wards and at least $8 million for PB across Chicago.
Should We Support Religious Freedom
Will I will keep this short because I have to run off to work in a few minutes. Here is why I don’t post about the Kim in Kentucky issue. Christianity is on the decline in America. I don’t like it but that is a fact. Islam is on the rise in America. I don’t like it but that is a fact. If we allow exceptions for religious reasons we will come up on the short end of this stick at the not to distant future. Just my two cents. Curious what you think about this line of reasoning.
Proposed City Ordinance
In order to get in front of this gay marriage issue, I am proposing the following ordinance:
Freedom from Force Act:
No one can be forced against their will to participate or acknowledge any act that goes against their religious beliefs; nor should they be able to refuse to provide a service or product to any individual if in doing so does not force them to participate or acknowledge any act.
The city will provide alternate workers with signing authority in positions where providing such services would violate one’s first amendment rights.
