Tennessee Governor Signs Anti-LGBT Adoption Bill Into Law

Via The Tennessean

Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee signed a controversial measure Friday that would let religious adoption agencies deny service to same-sex couples. The move comes after several groups, including the state chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union, urged Lee not to sign the legislation.

The law allows adoption agencies to refuse to participate in a child placement if doing so would “violate the agency’s written religious or moral convictions or policies.”

Under the law, which immediately takes effect, the state will be barred from denying an agency’s license or grant application for public funds because of a refusal to place a child with a family based on religious objections.

This bill was a direct result of being led by Project Blitz. The first thing to know about Project Blitz is that it was launched in 2015 by the Congressional Prayer Caucus Foundation, the National Legal Foundation, and Wallbuilders.

Wallbuilders was founded by David Barton, the Republican operative and discredited revisionist historian who rejects the separation of church and state, claiming that the United States was founded as a Christian nation

Remember,these people are pro-life until the child is born, and then they don’t give a damn.
