Another reason to be glad that there is once again an alternative news source in Western Loudoun. Welcome back, Blue Ridge Leader.
Sounds like members of the County Board- and others in our community- have taken umbrage at one Supervisor’s comments during the recent work on the nondiscrimination policy regarding sexual orientation. Sterling representative Eugene Delgaudio riled up his colleagues- and other folks as well- especially when he sent out an email on the issue- choosing to use the word ‘it’ to denote a person who wears clothing usually worn by one of the opposite sex.
He read from a prepared statement at this past week’s meeting- ostensible as an apology; some would say he’s still on the offensive.
Multiple County Board Members chastised Delgaudio from the dais on this subject; not sure what effect it’ll have.
But the reference by an elected leader to one of his potential constituents as ‘it’ does have some disturbing connotations.
Didn’t some nut with a mustache over in Germany- several decades ago- start considering human some beings as less deserving to live than others- and start a whole wave of violence that took the rest of the world to put a stop to?
Now, I’m not making a literal comparison, but hatred is hatred, and an attack is an attack.
And Allies are still Allies, God bless us
God Bless you, Tim Jon.
