Dear Friends,

Sen. Kelsey and Rep. Dunn have filed a bill to allow a person or a religious organization to refuse service to someone based on their religious objections if that service would further a marriage or civil union not valid under Tennessee's constitution. Read the bill at http://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/apps/BillInfo/Default.aspx?BillNumber=SB2566&ga=108 .

Does that mean refuse medical services to an individual in a same-sex relationship? Does that mean refuse to sell food to a same-sex couple? How far are they willing to go?  We don't know, but whatever it means, it means discrimination!
