I remind everyone, just like with ...

I remind everyone, just like with his constant no votes against alcohol sales, Rodgerson is simply acting like a Baptist preacher. He was a Baptist preacher before he was elected. He will be a Baptist preacher after he leaves the Council. To expect him not to act like, believe, and vote like a Baptist preacher while he is on the Council is absurd.

Also, this couldn't be a bigger non-issue. Rodgerson is the only person on the Council who feels this way.

Aaron Rodgerson isn't a Nazi, hate-monger or Klansman deserving of impeachment, or impalement. He's a fundamental Baptist preacher, who like it or not, does represent the beliefs of more people in Kirksville than critics want to admit.
He was elected with these fundamental beliefs, and this last vote will only have one affect, and that is if and when he runs for re-election.

Kirksville City Councilman Aaron Rodgerson: "I wouldn't rent to a homosexual."

Ladies and gentlemen, meet your homophobic City Councilman.
Ladies and gentlemen, Aaron Rodgerson.
...
A person does have a choice as to what their sexual orientation is," Rodgerson said.
It's true that race, color, age, disability and national origin are all descriptors protected by the EEOS that you cannot change about yourself. Gender is also protected, but this can be changed with a degree of difficulty. There's another descriptor that falls under the EEOS anti-discrimination protection provisions that can be changed, and easily: religion.
Aaron Rodgerson happens to be the Pastor of Southside Baptist Church. He chooses to practice Christianity, he chooses to make himself a religious figure, he chooses to present himself through religion. Following his logic of "choice exempts protection," religion should not be listed under EEOS provisions, yet Rodgerson has never once asked to have it struck from the anti-discrimination protection provisions listed in many city documents, which is what he advocates doing with sexual orientation. Can he justify not objecting to something that is very clearly is a choice, but justify discriminating against the inclusion of an orientation, an inclination, that cannot and likely will never be proven to be the result of a choice? The hypocrisy exhibited by Councilman Rodgerson is as unfortunate as it is unsurprising.
Rodgerson justifies his opposition to the inclusion of a provision to protect GLBTQs against rental discrimination by saying that "the majority of people in Kirksville do not support [gay rights]. So he is a savior of the masses, the majority of whom are landlords and all of whom feel as though they need protection from the horrors that ensue when money flows into their pockets from GLBTQ renters? ("Oh no, it's a gay person paying their rent on time! Anything but that!") Forgive me if I am mistaken, but I was under the impression that the "For Rent" signs still lining the streets of Kirksville, the lengthly listings of apartment and housing rentals in the classified ads and the daily news of the tanking real estate market are all indicators that landlords probably want anyone who's able to rent their properties, be they gay or straight. To put it plainly, money doesn't have a sexual orientation.
Can Rodgerson prove that his "majority" exists, factually and unequivocally? If he can't, Rodgerson has done nothing more than attempt to use a paid position of influence to discriminate against a group of individuals based upon a personal agenda. He's solidifed his position on this issue as that of a bigot; when asked if he would rent to someone who was gay he responded:
...
UPDATE: Rodgerson gave an interview this morning to KTVO3 that's worth checking out. Doesn't help his case.

KIRKSVILLE - Although City Councilman Aaron Rodgerson's trial date has been set for his alleged failure as a mandated reporter, he is finding the whole process to be rather silly.

"I am looking forward to having my day in court and in the end, the prosecution is going to look foolish," Rodgerson stated Monday after his trial setting at the Adair County Courthouse.
Rodgerson, a local pastor at Southside Baptist Church, is set to appear Feb. 25-26, 2010 for misdemeanor charges of failure to report abuse or neglect of a child under age 18 as a mandated reporter and unlawfully engaging in the practice of law.

Under the previous bond agreement, the Burns' were not allowed to have any contact with Rodgerson.
...
"The judge released part of the bond stipulation," Rodgerson said. "As long as there is a group, or a church-type setting, we can communicate."
Rodgerson is not allowed to discuss the case or any legal proceedings with the Burns and they are not allowed to meet in a personal setting.
The Burns' new bond stipulation will allow them to attend church, an event the both parties have been trying to arrange.
"It will allow them to come to church-type activities and be involved with our church family," Rodgerson added.
