When Governor Nathan Deal vetoed the religious liberty bill, he didn’t do it because he cares about diversity or the LGBT community. He did it because he didn’t want his state’s brand new temple to be sitting empty on Super Bowl Sunday.
“The purpose of this legislation is to protect the First Amendment rights of Georgians, not to disenfranchise the LGBT community.”
“It is sad to see how much liberal arts education and expression does not even try to understand and respect what is deemed culturally passé.”
“Please heed this warning: We will be made to care, if we don’t right now.”
The following letter from J. Robert White, executive director of the Georgia Baptist Mission Board, has been shared with pastors around the state. With Dr. White’s permission, the letter is now being made available for all Georgia Baptists to view.
“If you want to experience freedom, exercise your faith. Your faith will usher in the truth and the truth will set you free.”
