    Tennessee gov signs a bill to allow religious adoption agencies to deny services to perverts

    The governor of Tennessee is catching heat for signing a bill that allows religious-based adoption agencies the right to deny services to anyone, including LGBTQ families.
    The measure, which Gov. Bill Lee signed into law on Friday, also protects those agencies from getting sued or retaliated against for rejecting an applicant for "foster care or adoption if it violates their written religious or moral convictions or policies," according to House Bill 836.
    The bill passed by the Tennessee state Senate on Jan. 14 with a 20 to 6 vote. Five members were present but abstained from voting. After the Senate passed the bill, Lee promised to sign the bill once it hit his desk.

    "The governor believes that protection of rights is important, especially religious liberty," said Gillum Ferguson, a spokesman for Lee. "This bill is centered around protecting the religious liberty of Tennesseans and that’s why he signed it."

    I'd rather see governments ability to interfere removed but if one must permit more legislation this isn't bad.



    * Repealing the civil rights BS would end all the shenanigans that require legal wrangling such as the concept of "religious rights".

    government shouldn't be involved here, same as government shouldn't be involved in marriage
    I just want objectivity on this forum and will point out flawed sources or points of view at my leisure.

    The bigger problem is that these agencies don't have this right in the first place...

    Perverts? Normally when I see a conservative calling someone a pervert they end up in a bathroom with a wide stance, or taking pictures of a staffer.

    There is a critical lack of foster homes and people adopting. Anyone who is willing to provide a safe and nurturing environment should be commended.

    PERVERTS.

    Perverts do not provide a safe environment.
    And I am glad to see that you admit you want government to force private agencies to violate their religion.

    I know your entire role is Agent provocateur on these boards, but where did I say I want to allow government to do that? I said people who can provide a safe home should be commended, I didn't say I supported the bill. Private companies should stay private, if they want to be closed minded that's their right. The free market can decide if they last or not.

    While I think calling someone names for their sexual identity isn't very libertarian, hey, that's your right too.
