Today, April 19th, after 1pm the Lousiana House of Representatives is voting on a Bill to protect Pastors from being arrested for practicing their faith. Please contact your Louisiana State House Representative and inform them to vote yes for HB597 – The Pastor Protection Bill. This a bill that will protect Pastors like me from imprisonment and penalty for refusing to participate in or officiate weddings that are a violation of our beliefs. The LGBT community will be there to oppose the bill so they can continue to force people to violate their conscience and force them to submit to their beliefs. Something they claim all the time that they don’t do. Yet why would they fight a bill that prevents something they say they would never do?
Here is a list of Louisiana House Representatives Contact information. Find the one in your district, call and e-mail him or her. Tell them to Vote Yes on HB597.
Thank you all for your support.
