Tiny Midway Latest Kentucky City to Make Shelbyville Look Hateful and Stupid

For almost three years, the Shelbyville City Council has been stonewalling and lying and playing games to avoid even taking a vote on adding LGBT protections to the existing anti-discrimination code.

In that time, seven other cities have taken votes on Fairness.  Two of those voted Fairness down, but by holding a vote at all exposed Shelbyville City Council members as sniveling cowards.
Four of those cities voted to expand human rights to everyone.  And now it's five.

MIDWAY - This Woodford County city on Monday became the eighth in the state to adopt an ordinance prohibiting discrimination in housing, employment and public accommodations based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

With 4-2 passage of the ordinance by the city council, Midway joined Lexington, Louisville, Covington, Danville, Frankfort, Morehead and Vicco in Perry County as cities with similar ordinances.

Midway, with a population of 1,656, is the second-smallest city in Kentucky to pass an anti-bias ordinance. (Vicco has 320 people, according to the latest census estimate.)
Shelbyville's population as of 2010 was 14,000, and has been growing ever since.  It's probably 10 times the size of Midway.

Shame on you, Shelbyville.  SHAME!
