Religion in TN reminds me more of a protection racket. I categorically vote against any political candidate that claims to follow the moral preferences of invisible supercreatures that live in the sky.
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

I am writing to urge you to veto HB1840, the counseling discrimination bill.
Everyone that lives in TN or does business in TN pays TN sales tax.
Companies offering medical services regulated and controlled by the state are permitted to do so at the convenience of the state.
Expenses related to state regulation are paid by TN tax payers.
I do not believe any services regulated or licensed by the state (at tax payer cost) can be allowed to selectively exclude services to any one group or class of taxpayer.
Take a minute to contact Governor Bill Haslam by phone message or on Twitter and then let us know you did it using this form. Let's get to 500 or more!
I called or Tweeted Tennessee Governor Bill Haslam and urged him to veto HB1840, the counseling discrimination bill. I'm asking you to do the same this week.Endorse
