Georgia GOP Lawmaker Says Businesses Should Be Allowed To Turn Away Gay Couples


Carlos Santoscoy | On Top Magazine | January 14, 2016

A Republican member of the Georgia House has filed a bill that would allow business owners to turn away gay and lesbian couples seeking goods or services for a “matrimonial ceremony.”

State Rep. Kevin Tanner’s bill (HB 756) would allow florists, bakers or any other private business owner to cite their religious beliefs in refusing to serve gay couples.

The bill is a clear response to the Supreme Court’s June finding that gay couples have a constitutional right to marry.
