According to a recent Forum story, our city just hired a lawyer ".. that is backed by the ADF who has defended state-sanctioned sterilization of transgender people; contended that a homosexual agenda will destroy Christianity and society; and argued that LGBTQ people are more likely to engage in pedophilia ." And this lawyer wants to have sex between consenting adults in private, illegal? The city commissioners agreed to this?

What an embarrassment to our city. If you want to hire someone like this, commissioners, please pay for him yourself.

Darrell Hanson lives in Fargo.
