Vallejo, California Mayor Under Fire for Anti-Gay Remarks


You my recall the November '07 election os Osby Davis as mayor of Vallejo, California. It was a tight, contentious contest between Davis and openly gay candidate Gary Cloutier. Cloutier was declared the winner by five votes and then ousted in a recount.

Now, Davis is under fire for remarks he made to the New York Times in an article published last week. Said Davis about gays: “They’re committing sin and that sin will keep them out of heaven. But you don’t hate the person. You hate the sin that they commit.”

A protest is being organized against Davis. Watch the report, AFTER THE JUMP...
