Lambda Legal Condemns Georgia Religious Discrimination Bill
“As written, this bill will upend the balance between religious freedom and freedom from imposition of others’ religious beliefs. It provides special protections for people to justify discrimination. Lambda Legal urges the Georgia General Assembly to halt this bill before it causes damage and legal havoc between neighbors, employee and employer, customer and company, and landlord and tenant. If enacted, FADA would extend religious rights to for-profit companies of all sizes - no matter what goods they make or services they sell, they would be treated much like churches. Freedom of religion is already strongly protected by federal and state law - this bill goes too far.
