Tennessee governor signs anti-LGBTQ adoption bill
PBS ^ | 1/24/2020 | Staff

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee has become the latest state to assure continued taxpayer funding of faith-based foster care and adoption agencies even if those organizations exclude LGBTQ families and others based on religious beliefs.

Republican Gov. Bill Lee signed the bill Friday without fanfare or an official announcement, making it the first law to be implemented in Tennessee this year.

Previously, Lee said he endorsed the law because he believed defending religious liberty “is very important.” The Republican has often cited his Christian faith throughout his first term as governor.

However, under the new law, current adoption practices in Tennessee aren’t expected to change. Some faith-based agencies had already not allowed gay couples to adopt. But the measure now provides legal protections to agencies that do so.

That’s not true but I’m still against it.

Come on man you know that’s not 100 percent true.

We can be against it and not make totally untrue statements :)

I’m sure adoption by 2 men Certainly has a higher percentage of kids ending up raped, but but I worked with dozens of gay guys in graphics and I would have let maybe 20 percent of them watch my kids for an evening.

More so than some of the straight guys I knew!

We’ve been pretty pissed at Lee for opening up Tennessee to accept illegal aliens — actually wanting them to come. This decision might mitigate our “pissedness” a little.

It is not anti-anything. It is pro-adoption, providing as many possibilities for these at-risk children as possible.

THe left doesn’t want you to adopt children, they want the children dead.

There is no restriction on pro-lgbt adoption agencies; the state agency is strictly non-discriminatory, and any private group who wants to do something good for children, and wants to specifically cater to gay/lesbian couples, is free to do so.

It is a pro religious liberty bill. Like the Constitution makes note of. But notice the spin by MSM. Religious freedom and conscience protection is under attack.

“Tennessee governor signs anti-LGBTQ adoption bill”

Took courage. So far, the only other leader in the whole world to do this is Putin. Watch the same leftists who hate Russia start calling for war against Tennessee.

Homosexuals have an 11 to 1 propensity for molesting children. A kid needs a mother and a father, not two dads or two mommies.

Bullshit PBS title: “anti LGBTQ“

It should have read “Tennessee governor signs PRO RELIGIOUS LIBERTY adoption bill”

So Christian adoption agencies that care for foster children but disagree with you should be shut down?

Wow for a TX guy, you’re not the sharpest knife :)

I said I disagreed wit letting gay couples adopt kids.

Go start an argument with your wife or whomever you’re mad at :)

So, it’s not “anti-homo” at all; it protects those who aren’t pro-homo.
The press is pathetic.

So glad to see pushback against the deviants. Any normalization of homosexuality is wrong.

Any exposure of children to homosexual behavior is child abuse.

Letting fags adopt is a certain way to doom the child to a life of abuse at worst and sexual confusion at best.

It is a truism that homosexuals do not reproduce, they recruit.
