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.

We preview this month topic of Louisiana Public Square entitled “Defining Dangerous.”
