Florida Faith Leader Applauds Supreme Court’s Title VII Ruling

Tallahassee, FL — The Supreme Court rebuked the Trump administration’s immoral attempt to permit discrimination based on gender identity and sexual orientation. 

Rev. Dr. Joe Parramore, New Journey Ministries, Tallahassee:

“Justice has prevailed. Today, the Supreme Court has acknowledged that ‘all’ means ‘all.’  We celebrate that people of all sexual orientations and gender identities, as well as races, religious backgrounds and more can take pride in their work, fall in love, raise a family if they choose, enjoy friendship and community and live as authentically as possible.  While there are still gaps for discrimination in federal law and more work to be done, SCOTUS’s decision today goes a long way to ensuring that everyone has these basic rights.”
