Tennessee is Leading the Way (March 3, 2015)
A national news story last week showed that what we do in Tennessee may encourage other states to “do the right thing” too, this time in countering the so-called “gay agenda.”
Last week Arkansas passed a bill that prevented local governments from mandating that private businesses include special rights for their employees based on their sexual orientation or gender identity. In opposing the law, the largest pro-gay lobbying organization in America said, “I think for folks who really want to turn back the tide on LGBT equality, these bills are unfortunately something they’re looking into.”
They are looking into these laws because Tennessee passed the first such law, at the insistence of The Family Action Council of Tennessee. It is encouraging to know that by supporting good laws here, we just may have a positive impact beyond our borders.
