Vote NO on HB2410 and HB2310

Please, vote NO on HB2410 and HB2310 when they come before the House Children and Families Subcommittee on March 18.  Both bills have high fiscal notes.

A 2019 Public Religion Research Institute found that a majority of Tennessee residents now support marriage equality, commonly known as same-sex marriage.  And over 125 Tennessee clergy opposed a 2019 bill to undo marriage equality.

Obergefell is the law of the land as affirmed by the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts in Pavan v. Smith, a case that determined that a state must place the names of married same-sex couples on their child's birth certificate.

No one can doubt that passing this bill will result in expensive litigation and massive economic implications for Tennessee.  Any state that now attempts to undo marriage equality will face loss of jobs and tourism revenue.

Thank you for considering my views.
