Is it right to be able to fire someone just because they’re gay? Even in this conservative church town, most people would say no. But this summer, when a bill came before the city council that would write that into law, Jacksonville erupted into a long and bitter debate. Would the bill force Christians who object to homosexuality to hide their beliefs? And when would things change for LGBT people here, who have long lists of all the times they’ve been harassed, fired, and kicked out of restaurants—with no legal recourse afterward? In the lead-up to the big vote, we hear from LGBT activists pushing for Jacksonville to change, conservative Christians determined to sway the city council their way… and one pastor who did some soul-searching, and decided to go against the crowd.
