The senseless attacks on LGBT Georgians just reached a whole new level.
Moments ago, the Senate Rules Committee advanced the so-called First Amendment Defense Act (FADA)—and now this dangerous bill is even worse than before. As amended today, FADA allows any taxpayer funded, faith-based nonprofit or agency to deny all services based on religious beliefs.
And while you can rest assured LGBT Georgians are the target of this reckless bill, they certainly won’t be the only victims. FADA opens the door to state-sanctioned discrimination against single mothers, unwed parents, people of other faiths and more—all under the guise of so-called “religious freedom.”
This shameful bill is now being fast-tracked to the Senate floor. There’s no time to waste! Tell your Senator: No more. Reject the First Amendment Defense Act and end the onslaught of attacks on LGBT Georgians.
It’s hard to believe with real, pressing issues at hand, Georgia lawmakers are so hell bent on advancing legislation that does one thing and one thing only: demean LEGALLY married same-sex couples under state law, simply because of who they are.
But that’s the kind of politics fringe lawmakers are playing in the General Assembly right now—all at the expense of loving families who call our state home. And if today’s vote proved anything, it’s that they’re prepared to push harder than we even thought possible to strong arm their anti-LGBT agenda.
The fight to stop FADA on the Senate floor begins now—and you can help ensure that this discriminatory bill doesn’t advance any further by telling your Senator to reject it.
Our opponents should be ashamed of the damage they’re inflicting on real Georgians and the reputation of our state.
But our movement, comprised of tens of thousands of grassroots supporters like you, should be prouder than ever, knowing that we’re fighting the good fight to keep our state open to everyone.
