People of Faith in Georgia Unite Against Discrimination
As people of faith, we declare that our faith calls us to reject attempts by some to use religious freedom as a guise to discriminate against others.
That’s why a growing chorus of faith adherents are joining together to speak out against the so-called Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA), a bill that could allow individuals and business to use religion as a justification to discriminate against others.
As persons of faith from diverse traditions, we believe freedom of religion is one of our most fundamental rights as Americans, but religious freedom does not give any of us the right to harm or exclude others.
We caution our elected leaders against supporting this unnecessary RFRA bill, which opens wide the door for exclusion and division. Instead, they must preserve the current protections already afforded to religious organizations through the Constitution.
If you are a person of faith who stands opposed to discrimination being used in the name of religion, please join our coalition of faithful Georgians from across the state who have already voiced their opposition to the Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Fill out the form below to add your name, then ask your faith leader to join nearly 200 clergy and religious leaders who have sign on to our open letter in opposition to RFRA.
