I Prayed have prayed
Lord, we thank You for giving Tennessee and Governor Bill Lee the courage to sign this bill. We pray that religious freedom would be protected across the nation.

Tennessee moved to protect religious freedom, preventing people from being required to “solemnize a marriage” they disagree with.

From The Hill. Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee (R) signed a bill Wednesday allowing public officials to refuse to perform same-sex marriages.

Get involved in state level prayer with IFA.

 

State lawmakers approved Tennessee House Bill 878 last week. The legislation states people “shall not be required to solemnize a marriage” if they refuse to doing so based on their “conscience or religious beliefs.” According to the Tennessee Legislature website, the governor signed the bill Wednesday. …

The bill does not allow officials to deny marriage licenses to couples based on their beliefs but prevents officials from being required to solemnize a marriage. …

The legislation has faced some criticism from LGBTQ advocacy organizations. Molly Whitehorn, associate director of regional campaigns for the Human Rights Campaign, said last week the bill was “intended to exclude LGBTQ+ folks from equal protection under the law.” …

I stand with Tennessee.

Thank You Governor Lee. I will keep you and yours in prayer; that your heart will be guarded by the One to whom you belong.

Let your eyes look straight ahead; fix your gaze directly before you. Give careful thought to the paths of your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn from the right or to the left; keep your foot from evil. Proverbs 25 – 27

Peace be unto your house. Luke 10:5

In Jesus Everlasting Name.
Amen..

As Christian we should not be forced to go against our conscience that is ruled by our Biblical beliefs. Freedom of religion should prevail accord to the U.S. constitution. Lord help us to be brave and bold to stand up to your Word. IJN
