Prominent Coalition of Interfaith Clergy Demand Repeal of HB 2


Charlotte, NC -- On Thursday, May 19th, a prominent and growing coalition of interfaith clergy gathered at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church for a press conference opposing HB 2, the highly controversial ‘bathroom bill.’ These faith leaders stood in fierce opposition to this dangerous legislation, saying that HB 2 compromises our nation’s values and are calling for its immediate repeal.

Rev. Martha Kearse, St. John's Baptist Church, Charlotte NC:

We stand, not just for mere tolerance, but for kindness, for welcome, for inclusion, and for protection from bullying, protection from discrimination, and protection from harm. We stand for love in the way that Jesus expressed it, which means inclusion, which means acceptance, and which means seeing every person as a fearfully, and wonderfully made child of God.
