During this nation's long struggle to end slavery, Abraham Lincoln noted the irony of slaveholders "shouting" for their freedom to take away other people's freedom. In Bowling Green, those who oppose the proposed anti-discrimination ordinances argue that they themselves do not discriminate, or, as one put it, "I don't plan on discriminating against anyone." If so, they should have no problem with rules against discrimination or other noxious behaviors. What freedoms have they lost with laws against murder, robbery, and rape? Or speeding, littering, and inciting panic?
One wonders: what freedoms are opponents of the anti-discrimination ordinances trying so hard to defend?
