Turn Away Gays Bill

ACLU "Surprised" By Religious Freedom Act

Feb 14, 2014

The American Civil Liberties Union’s Nashville office usually has a pretty good idea of what bills they’ll need to address before they’re introduced.  The Religious Freedom Act was an exception.

Introduced shortly before last week’s filing deadline, HB2467 and SB2566 would protect business owners from having to provide goods or services to gay couples “in furtherance of a civil union, domestic partnership, or marriage not recognized by the Tennessee Constitution.”
