(La Porte, IN) - La Porte City Councilman, Roger Galloway, took more heat last night for comments offensive to the LGBTQ community and its supporters. During a public meeting two weeks ago, Galloway said the the LGBTQ lifestyle goes against the teachings of The Bible. Galloway apologized the next day and again at last night's city council meeting.
La Porte resident Jason Milo says his remarks do not reflect the community and the damage to the city’s reputation will take time to repair. Milo also called Galloway’s apology half-hearted and said he hopes voters will not forget. Galloway was also criticized by the city council and the mayor. Mayor Tom Dermody said diversity training will be offered to each member of the council and all city department heads.
