Family Values Strikes Again
Oooh. Gotta love this one. Seems that a city council of Black Jack, a town outside of St. Lous, MO., doesn't think unwed couples with children should be allowed to live together. To ensure this, they deny such families occupancy permits which means they are not allowed to move into a home they have rented or purchased in the town.
First off, this is just plain old biggotry. More "morality policing" by cultural conservatives who insist on imposing their particular brand of morality on the rest of us.
Second, where on earth does a city get off on requring permits before you can move into a home? I have never heard of such a silly thing. At least I have never had to apply for a permit to move into a new home in a new town before.
