Tennessee Legislature Passes Bill Allowing Religious Adoption Agencies To Discriminate

The Tennessee Legislature just passed a bill that allows religious based adoption agencies to discriminate against LGBTQ adults trying to become parents. The bill now awaits the governor’s signature. Only one Republican joined the 5 Democrats in voting against it. 5 other Republicans declined to vote.
   This is a disgrace.
   Shame on Tennessee for voting in a bill that legalizes discrimination!
   What is wrong with people?
   Where does all this bigotry come from?
   It infuriates me and breaks my heart at the same time.
   People being good, loving parents, whatever their sexuality, is what should matter.
   Making it legal for religious based agencies to tell an entire community that they can’t adopt simply because they are LGBTQ is sickening and based on prejudice.
   Folks, prejudice is wrong!
   Why are there so many Americans who don’t see that?
   Seems to me that many people in this country need to take a good hard look at themselves, their positions, and what is behind those positions.
   People need to open their minds and let go of intolerances and prejudices.
   It’s time to stop trying to use religion as an excuse for prejudice because prejudice is wrong.
   That should be obvious. The fact that it is not obvious shows that as a society, this country has a long way to go in terms of understanding, kindness, equality, and acceptance. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2020/01/15/tennessee-gay-adoption-bill-allowing-agencies-discriminate-passes/4483527002/
