Pastors perturbed by ousting of funeral home leader - Indianapolis Recorder

Black Church needs Bluitt’s support.“Without the service of Mr. Bluitt, the Black Church will be at a severe handicap,” Lyons said.Bluitt remains the sole proprietor of Bluitt and Son Funeral Home in Kokomo, Indiana, which was created in 1957 by his father.Lyons said he has faith that God will come through, allowing Bluitt to continue his work in Indianapolis, but the court could also play a role. Bluitt has reportedly filed a suit against Wilson Financial Group to be able to sell the rights to the Bluitt and Son name to local investors looking to open a Bluitt and Son Funeral Home in Indianapolis.Regardless of what the future holds, Covington said Bluitt has the support of local pastors who are rooting for his return to where “God has placed him.”As of Recorder press time, Bluitt could not be reached for comment.© 2017 Indianapolis Recorder Newspaper.

The hardest hit areas included Garden Square Apartments, Inventrek, Highland Park, Park Place Apartments, the Kokomo Country Club and the Cedar Crest subdivision, where around 40 homes were completely destroyed or substantially damaged.In total, more than 1,000 residential structures were damaged by the tornado. Eighty one of those structures were considered destroyed and 173 sustained major damage. Around 20 minor injuries were reported, but no fatalities.Thousands of volunteers turned out over the following weeks to help clean up the deluge of debris that littered yards and streets.Gov. Mike Pence took a break from the presidential campaign trail to visit the city and offer condolences to those affected by the twister. He was joined by Sen. Joe Donnelly.Kokomo Mayor Greg Goodnight said the outpouring of support and aid from around the state was staggering.“Kokomo, like it did in 2013, will rebuild and recover from the devastation left by Mother Nature,” he said in a letter published in the Kokomo Tribune. “Our city is resilient beyond belief and will not be broken by a tornado. Like my friend and local community activist, Kevin Sprinkle, tweeted: 'Kokomo 2, tornadoes 0.'"3. Common Council approves LGBT protectionsAfter two readings in March, both of which saw crowds of hundreds flock to City Hall, the Kokomo Common Council approved on March 14 an amended human rights ordinance.As residents crowded in council chambers, the lobby of City Hall and outside its front doors, the council amended the human rights municipal code to include LGBT protections, specifically a ban on discrimination concerning a person’s sexual orientation or gender identity.In addition to LGBT protections, council members voted to bar discrimination related to a person’s marital status, age or veteran status.Local municipal protections were formerly given only to residents based on race, religion, color, sex, familial status, disability, national origin and ancestry. The affected residents will now be protected in the areas of housing, financial institutions, employment, labor organizations, public accommodations and education.The measure, which was approved by the same 5-4 vote during both readings, led to discussions, sometimes heated, on a variety of issues, including religion, restroom safety, existing LGBT discrimination, First Amendment rights, city-sponsored fines and more.After the second reading, council member Cindy Sanders, who voted against the ordinance, said the changes will ultimately have a negative impact on the community.“Women and children, both male and female children, are going to be affected,” she said, citing oft-mentioned concerns with sexual predators abusing gender identity protections to enter bathrooms. “I believe that many people in the community won’t be willing to come here."Sponsoring the ordinance, however, was council member Steve Whikehart, who said he received roughly 300 phone calls in the week leading up to the second vote. His responsibility, he said, was shared by those on the council also supporting the measure.“This bill was just focused on the future, and so many of us are in the same stance,” said Whikehart at the time. “I think that we are looking to just move forward with this, coming together as a community. The best thing that’s happened has been the fact we’ve had an open discussion about the LGBT community.“In order for us to all come together as a community, that was the first step. And we did that, we accomplished that. It’s been paramount to me that we send a message across the state and nation that Kokomo is a welcoming and inclusive community.”4.
