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.

    Let’s focus on issues that need to be solved, not ones where the electorate has already been decided.

    As a native of Washington County and a pastor ordained in the Lutheran Church ELCA in 1991, I voice my support for the separation of church and state, support for equality of all citizens including the right for same sex couples to marry as set forth with the Supreme Court decision. I hope Washington County will drop this mingling of state and religion and use our money and resources to help the poor and oppressed rather than oppressing our tax paying citizens by insulting them and trying to take away their rights!


    Thank you!
