JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A group called Biblical Concepts Ministries says it will fight the anti-discrimination bill that was discussed Tuesday night.
The bill, brought up at a city council meeting, would ban discrimination against gay, lesbian, bisexual and the transgender community.
The leader of BCM, Dr. Raymond Johnson, said he's sent hundreds of pastors letters to educate and activate congregations to contact council members to help defeat the bill.
The group said in a news release, "We have spoken so politically correct we have desensitized a generation to homosexuality, it is not an alternative lifestyle, it is sodomy, perversion and sin. "
Several local pastors and business owners say they're also behind the effort.
