LGBT Protesters Expected As ‘Marriage and Conscience Act’ Hearings Begin
Protesters of the lesbian, gay, transgender and bisexual community will be in Baton Rouge tomorrow, planning to protest opening hearings in the state House of Representatives on HB 707, better known as the Louisiana Marriage and Conscience Act.
The bill, introduced by Bossier City representative Mike Johnson, “has one simple purpose: to ensure a conscience-based protection against adverse treatment by state government against people who hold to a traditional view of one man/one woman marriage.”
According to the Louisiana For Liberty website,
“All the bill does is prevent the state from denying or withholding from such a person or entity, a tax-exempt status, a license, certification, accreditation, employment or state contract. In this way, the bill protects every individual’s fundamental right of conscience and prevents the state from penalizing a person simply because of what they believe.”
