Transgender woman waves rock, prods councilman to stone her over his ‘Biblical’ vote


A transgendered woman livened up a city council meeting in Shreveport, La., when she displayed a large rock, daring a councilman to use it to stone her.

Pamela Raintree‘s theatrics was in response to the efforts of councilman Ron Webb to repeal a recently passed non-discrimination ordinance geared toward sexual orientation and gender identity, according to the Advocate.

Webb was the only dissenting vote. According to the local TV station KSLA, he said at the time, “The Bible tells you homosexuals are an abomination.”

“Leviticus 20:13 states, ‘If a man also lie with mankind as he lieth with a woman, they shall surely put him to death,'” Raintree said. “I brought the first stone, Mr. Webb, in case that your Bible talk isn’t just a smoke screen for personal prejudices.”

The comment suggests Raintree may have her religions mixed up, as the Bible verse she quoted does not reference stoning. Under Islamic law, homosexuality is a crime against God and is punishable by being stoned to death.

Nonetheless, Raintree prevailed as Webb eventually withdrew his resolution without calling for a vote, the Advocate reported.
