"Special Access to Discriminate" Bill Is Ba-ack!



After being withdrawn for lack of support in the Tennessee House Subcommittee on Commerce, a bill prohibiting cities from requiring contractors to treat LGBT employees with equal respect is back up for a vote. The subcommittee is scheduled to vote on HB600, dubbed the "Special Access to Discriminate" Act, on Tuesday, April 12th.

The Tennessee Equality Project is asking the bill's opposition to sign this petition on Change.org. As of this posting, the petition had garnered nearly 300 signatures.

David Fowler of the Family Action Council of Tennessee, one of the group's pushing the bill, sent this crazy video attempting to connect pedophilia with protections for gender identity and expression to FACT supporters:
