We have been writing about Nebraska assistant football coach Ron Brown and his testimony against an anti-discrimination ordinance in Omaha that would protect LGBT people. Brown continued his homophobic assault even when the city council upheld the ordinance on a 4-3 vote.
The Omaha Herald ran a letter against Brown’s actions written by John F. Carroll, an attorney and season ticket holder who is gay. It’s an awesome letter — sent to Athletic Director Tom Osborne and Coach Bo Pelini — and deserves your attention for taking on Brown so effectively, calling him a “religious bully”:
Coach Osborne and Coach Pelini:
My name is John F. Carroll. I am a season ticket holder of four seats in the North End Zone. Yesterday, I witnessed a depressing moment. Coach Brown drove to Omaha, from Lincoln where he lives, to speak out against the City of Omaha’s proposed ordinance protecting gays and gender identity.
