A measure to ban discrimination based on sexual orientation in Baton Rouge went nowhere after more than three hours of debate. This week we talk with Councilwoman Denise Marcelle who authored the “Fairness Ordinance” and Gene Mills of the Louisiana Family Forum who fought against it. How does Louisiana determine if someone is a danger to themselves or others?
