A St. Paul City Council member is being urged to resign for past anti-gay posts on Facebook. Gay advocates from Minnesota’s Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party are presenting a resolution Sunday at the party’s convention in St. Paul asking for Kassim Busuri to resign. Busuri says his Muslim faith does not support homosexuality and that criticizing his previous posts amounts to Islamophobia. The posts surfaced Wednesday after Busuri was the only member not to support a Pride Month resolution.
