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.

    I am a person of Faith and I was very disappointed to see Christianity used as a justification for these laws.

    Do not discriminate. Is that so difficult? I work as a midwife and take care of everyone who needs care., even if I do not agree with them

    I lived in Chattanooga until very recently and still care deeply about friends and the community there. Tennessee has to move forward into the future instead of staying mired in the past. The world is watching.
