Jim Henrichs signed No special legislative session for bathroom discrimination! 2016-05-21 11:55:40 -0500We have many more pressing issues than this. There is NO evidence that this is a problem ANYWHERE! You’re just pandering to the the far-right to score political points. Don’t waste my tax dollars debating an issue that’s NOT AN ISSUE!

Dear Speaker Ramsey and Speaker Harwell:
We oppose a special legislative session to consider an anti-transgender bathroom discrimination law. It is never justified to spend the state's time and money to advance discrimination. Thank you for considering our views.
Jim Henrichs endorsed 2016-04-26 12:10:10 -0500It is just shameful that you would use religion to discriminate your own citizens. It’s not very Christian if you ask me.
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.Endorse
