St. Louis suburb expands discrimination ordinance

RICHMOND HEIGHTS, Missouri -- A St. Louis suburb has expanded its discrimination ordinance to prohibit bias based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Richmond Heights City Council voted 5-4 this week to approve the measure. Councilwoman Gina Mitten says discrimination is wrong regardless of the reason.

Opponent Councilman Mike Jones says the added protection could hurt owners of rental property who believe homosexuality is a sin.
