Steve Stanton Fired
Largo city commissioners vote to fire city manager Steve Stanton because of the controversy surrounding his plans to get a sex change. The St Petersburg Times has a video of Stanton giving a moving speech of what he has been through the past week. He never showed bitterness, spoke highly of Largo and city officials. After Stanton's speech, the city commission voted 5-2 to end his employment.
Update: Pastor Ron Saunders made this comment before before the vote.
"If Jesus was here tonight, I can guarantee you he'd want him terminated."
I wonder if Saunders' track record is better than Pat Robertson's claims of knowing where God is going to send hurricanes.
