The People's Resolution Opposing Tennessee House Joint Resolution 529 on Marriage Equality

Sign on as a co-sponsor of the People's Resolution Opposing Tennessee House Joint Resolution 529 on Marriage Equality.

WHEREAS, Rep.  Susan Lynn has introduced a resolution urging the members of the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee to express their disagreement with the U.S. Supreme Court's ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges; and

WHEREAS, the Tennessee Constitution affirms "That the citizens have a right, in a peaceable manner, to assemble together, for their common good, to instruct their representatives, and to apply to those invested with the powers of government for redress of grievances or other proper purposes, by address or remonstrance;" and

WHEREAS, the State of Tennessee ought to be focused on the legal equality of all its people rather than attacking the gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender community; and

WHEREAS, "the equal protection of the laws" is a cherished principle in American jurisprudence; now, therefore,

BE IT RESOLVED BY THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF TENNESSEE, that we oppose House Joint Resolution 529 and urge the members of the 109th General Assembly of the State of Tennessee to uphold the entire Constitution of the United States, including the Fourteenth Amendment, and cease their legislative attacks on gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender people.

    Whatever your personal opinions on whether or not people of the same sex are legally entitled to the same marital rights, obligations, protections under the law, the supreme court has ruled. To push your own little prejudices on the legislature and on the population of the state is more revealing of your own small-mindedness and ignorance of the proper role of government in this country than anything else. If you disapprove of same-sex marriage, don’t have one. The marriages of other couples have no impact on those of anybody but themselves, are none of your business, and to waste the limited resources of the legislature on such matters is disgraceful. This kind of nonsense is what contributes to our state, and our elected officials in particular, being the laughing stock of the world. Try being a leader for a change.

    As a Mount Juliet resident, I oppose this wasteful use of time and money to express a distinctly religious opinion that most residents oppose. Jesus taught us to love our neighbors, not all our neighbors other than the gay ones.
