In late 2013, the city council of Shreveport, La., passed an ordinance by a 6-to-1 vote banning discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity. Yay, progress!
The only "no" vote was conservative councilman Ron Webb, who said he opposes the non-discrimination law because "the Bible tells you homosexuals are an abomination." Webb drafted a resolution to repeal it.
Enter the awesome Pamela Raintree, a transgender woman who used her own Bible passage at a city council meeting to call Webb out on his actions. Minutes after hearing her words, Webb withdrew his resolution without calling for a vote.
Hear the incredible thing she had to say below.
