    Stop using religion to discriminate in Tennessee

    stopusingreligion.JPG

    On April 18, 2016 about 30 pastors shamefully stood in Legislative Plaza and spoke in favor of the anti-transgender student bathroom bill.  And religion was used to advance the counseling discrimination bill.  Many more clergy across Tennessee publicly opposed both bills.

    Whether you're religious or not, aren't you tired of religion being used to support discrimination in our laws?  If so, endorse this statement:

    We oppose the use of religion to justify discrimination in Tennessee law.  To use religion to divide us in our public life violates the spirit of the U.S. and Tennessee Constitutions, does harm to the people of Tennessee, and brings scandal to religion.

    Wedding Officiants/Celebrants for DAY ONE in Tennessee

    Are you legally able to celebrate weddings and are you willing to do so on DAY ONE and the following days of marriage equality after the Supreme Court makes its ruling?  If so, let us know.  We may be contacting you to perform ceremonies. 

    NOTE:  Do not fill out the form if you require counseling before marrying a couple.  And do not volunteer if you will only preside at the wedding but not sign the marriage license.  We respect your views, but what couples who are getting married on DAY ONE need is help quickly to get their marriage finalized. 

    If you have questions about who may solemnize a marriage in Tennessee, the answers are here.
