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.

    “Let marriage be honorable among all…” That’s what it says in Hebrews. Like the slaveowners of the Antebellum period, this bigot uses the Scripture to promote hate and bigotry. Completely and probably purposely take verses out of context to support hate. I’m from Georgia but all the hate-filled legislation comes from Tennessee. I wonder how the Republicans feel that a gay playwright shared the same pseudonym as the state.
