GA Faith Leaders Denounce Trump’s Rumored Anti-LGBTQ Executive Order

Atlanta, Ga. — On Thursday, May 4th, a prominent coalition of interfaith clergy will hold a press conference to denounce an anti-LGBTQ executive order that President Trump is rumored to sign on Thursday. If signed into law, the executive order will allow discrimination against LGBTQ and other communities in the false name of religious freedom.

Interfaith clergy who have worked to defeat discriminatory religious exemption bills in Georgia are gravely concerned about the reported executive order’s consequences for religious liberty and for people who would face discrimination in the name of this core American value.

Nearly twenty Georgia faith leaders have signed a national petition calling on President Trump not to sign the rumored executive order. To see the letter and a full list of signers, click here.
