Anti Gay Marriage Push in Tennessee

Tennessee Lawmakers want to push back against last year’s Supreme Court Decision Legalizing Same-Sex Marriage. Dresden Republican Representative Andy Holt sponsors the “Religious Freedom Restoration Act”. The proposed law would shield clergy and religious organizations from civil action arising from refusal to recognize gay marriage. Holt’s bill would allow religious groups to refuse to perform gay marriage ceremonies. Same sex couples could also be denied the use of services, accommodations, facilities, goods and privileges connected with a gay marriage. Several States have passed or are considering similar legislation.
