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.

    As a Christian, I know it is NOT my place to pass judgement upon others & speak for God. Religion (as a whole) has gotten even stronger in the way of using the Lord to justify the thoughts, ideals, & desires of man. Man has taken it upon himself to think for the rest of us in almost every way from women’s right, to lifestyle choices, to most any & everything that is absolutely none of their business. The reasoning behind our forefathers’ decision to separate church & state shall not be changed by the will of men who don’t pay taxes, & greedily act as prophets.
