Nebraska's assistant coach Ron Brown has a slight problem with a gay-rights ordinance, which gives protection to gay or transgender people in Omaha, Nebraska.
Brown recently attended a Omaha City Council hearing and testified against the anti-discrimination ordinance. During his three minute appearance, Brown challenged ordinance sponsor Ben Gray and other members to remember that the Bible doesn't condone homosexuality. He told council members they would be held to "great accountability" for the ordinance.
Brown went on with his speech, "The question I have for you all is, like Pontius Pilate, what are you going to do with Jesus?" Brown asked. "Ultimately, if you don't have a relationship with him, and you don't really have a Bible-believing mentality, really, anything goes. At the end of the day it matters what God thinks most", Brown went on to say.
A memeber of the Lincoln Board of Education -- Barbara Baier -- wrote a letter to university administrators to request Browns firing for the speech..
Chancellor of Nebraska -- Harvey Perlman -- addressed the speech. Although he felt bad about Brown's comments, Perlman said that Brown's personal views didn't reflect those of the university.
