Statement from City Council President, Doug Shields

More statements about the passage of Allegheny County's Human Relations ordinance

I am pleased that the county in some way recognized that all people have rights to be protected from discrimination based upon sexual identity.

I am disappointed that a very simple constutional concept – equal protection under the law –  causes so much political foot shuffling.

The County law has yet to meet that test in that it says you can continue to discriminate in a variety of situations.   It is also less than what the city enacted years ago.  As we celebrate our nations birth it is clear to me that many still have not grasped the concepts embodied in our Constitution. Doug Shields, President, Pittsburgh City Council.

Amen, President Shields.
