Ethnic purging in Iraq, Nazi purging of Jews in Germany. Pretty bad stuff. But a few centuries ago left-handers were treated as second class citizens. Girl babies were (are?) killed in some cultures. And in this country it hasn't been that long ago that black Americans were enslaved, women weren't allowed to vote.

Today the hot button issue is the full acceptance and equal rights of the LGBT community. When will it all end? When will we finally recognize that prejudice is prejudice, period. Mayor Hanel and five city council members were wrong. Billings, Miles City, every county, every state should have a clear and unambiguous Non Discrimination Ordinance where everyone is equally welcomed and everyone is equally accepted.
