UPDATE 2: So much for the city’s inclusion resolution. Langford’s bigotry trumps it.
UPDATE: the Birmingham News report. Thanks to Robin in comments.
Official word from Rep. Todd: Mayor Langford did not say he would deny a parade permit. He will leave the approval process to the police department. This can be a great educational opportunity for the community.
And, I might add, the mayor. No word yet on whether he’ll reverse himself regarding the proclamation and the banners.
(I’m in the middle of Music Man rehearsal, so I’m getting information on the fly. Please leave updates in comments if you hear anything.)
