Texas: Sexual Orientation/Gender identity discrimination fight propels recall attempt against San Antonio Councilman

Petitioners trying to recall Councilman Diego Bernal appear to be motivated by his push to add protections for sexual orientation and gender identity to the city law. The petitioners claim that these protections come at the expense of religious freedom. The article claims that the recall is a reaction by supporters to attacks on another councilwoman, who made secretly recorded anti-gay comments.

Petitioners need over 6,000 valid signatures to get on the ballot.
