Breckenridge Bans Discrimination Against Gays

December 15 2004, 12:29 PM
The Breckenridge Town Council voted last night to include gays in its anti-discrimination ordinance. Of the 50 people who attended the meeting, only one spoke out against the ban:
Physician Bill Bolthouse was the lone dissenter at the meeting, saying he wanted to present his Christian values. "Homosexuals as a class don't qualify for special considerations," he said. "Why is the council bringing it up? I can only conclude that it's due to political loyalties rather than workplace discrimination."
Perhaps it's time to add providing medical services to housing and employment as protections provided to the citizens of Breckenridge.
