Doing What's Right: Tulsa Councilor Bynum Offers Support for Gay Employees

Tulsa councilor G. T. Bynum, a conservative Republican, has gone out on a limb, but he's doing the right thing. The limb we are speaking of is Bynum's proposal for the city of Tulsa to protect the rights of the city's gay employees.

This is brave stuff here in T-town, which has a long and dishonorable tradition of discriminating against gay folks.

Tulsa World columnist Wayne Green weighed in on the topic in yesterday's paper, offering a thoughtful review of the issue and giving Bynum credit for doing the right thing. 

We second Green's views and commend Bynum for his fair-minded attitude and and political courage. Read Green's column here.

Bynum is eliciting ouchs from bigots like Bates, who freak out when their "Christian" mores are violated.
