Supporters push for fairness bills

Posted: Updated:

Louisville, Ky. (WDRB) -- Supporters of gay rights want the Louisville Archbishop on their side. They sang Catholic hymns before Mass at the Cathedral of the Assumption Sunday afternoon.

Supporters seek Joseph Kurtz's blessing for bills now pending before the legislature to ban discrimination statewide, based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

But so far, no response.

"I think they say something that is important to help get more of the conservative lawmakers behind this bill as well," said Dennis Cornell, equal rights supporter.

Bills to bring "fairness" statewide have languished in several past legislative sessions. Several cities, including Louisville, already ban discrimination against gays and lesbians.
