Georgia Faith Leaders Unite Against Discrimination

The Golden Rule teaches us to treat others as we would like to be treated. This tenet of good faith holds true across a diversity of religious traditions.

If you are a faith leader or a person of faith who believes in treating others fairly and equally, and who opposes discrimination of any kind, join more than 300 clergy across the state of Georgia and add your name to the pledge below:

As clergy and civil rights leaders, we stand united against efforts to codify discrimination into law, and firmly oppose any attempts to give license to discriminate under the guise of protecting religious freedom.

We believe freedom of religion is one of our most fundamental rights as Americans, which is why it is safeguarded by both the U.S. Constitution and Georgia's State Constitution. But religious freedom does not give any of us the right to harm or exclude others.

Our diverse faith traditions call us to love others as God loves us, to treat all living beings with respect and dignity, and to uplift those in need.

That is why we stand in unity with our LGBT brothers and sisters, in support of their equal rights, and in condemnation of their unfair treatment.
