The Tennessee ACLU reported that the state dodged a different religious bigotry-enabling bullet last month.
NASHVILLE – A bill that would have made Tennessee the first state in the nation to codify into state law the use of religion to discriminate will not be considered during this year’s legislative session.
The bill was put into General Subcommittee, effectively ending the journey of SB 2566 for this legislative session.
Under the guise of protecting religious freedom, SB 2566 would have allowed individuals, businesses and organizations to use religion to discriminate against LGBT and other unmarried couples by refusing to provide them goods or services.
Religion is really covering itself with glory these days.
