Update: Council Passes Resolution To Recognize Pro Gay Student Protestors

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A controversial council resolution to honor students who worked against the so-called "Don't Say Gay" bill ended differently than the last time it came up for a vote.
On Tuesday night, sponsor Jamie Hollin found a different way to put the resolution up for another vote.  He proposed "non-binding memorializing resolution" that would put the council on record as supporting the actions of those students. It passed with overwhelming support.(link)

I was disappointed to see this resolution pass. From now on, when pro-life students protest in front of an abortion clinic, when students demonstrate to protect 2nd Amendment rights, when they participate in a tea party demonstration or engage in any laudatory political activity they should be honored with a resolution. Why stop at students? When senior citizens protest Obamacare or moms protest unionist efforts to sabotage school reform, they should be honored also. When Vandy students protest the Federal Reserve, they should be honored. Councilmen should load the agenda with resolutions honoring ever patriot and kook who holds a protest sign.

Here is how members of the Council voted: 
Voting for the Resolution: Garrett, Barry, Tygard, Steine, Maynard, Matthews, Harrison, Hollin, Jameson, Cole, Jernigan, Stanley, Page, Moore, LaLonde, Langster, Evans, Holleman, McGuire, Adkins, Wilhoite, Todd, Mitchell (23)
Voting no:  Craddock, Forkum, Ryman, Gotto, Burch, Foster, Dominy, Hodge, Toler, Duvall (10); Abstaining: Bennett, Claiborne, Crafton (3).
