2017-02-24: HB2 (local contact)

Sent to both Senator Van Duyn and Representative Fischer:


No compromise should be accepted on HB2.  It must be REPEALED OUTRIGHT.

The religious extremists who continue to support this legislation must be brought out into the light and shown to the world as the demons that they are, even if it means bringing the NC Economy to a grinding halt.

HB2 is unconstitutional legislation that meddles in the private lives of the people of NC, and it's remarkably hypocritical that the conservative freaks who created it in the first place, who claim to hold personal liberty and freedom from government control so dear, continue to impose excessive control over others just because they have different beliefs.  

This is as un-american as it gets.

What part of Freedom of Religion do they really not understand?  The first amendment is clear, and furthermore:
In Cantwell v. Connecticut (1940), the Court held that the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment applied the Free Exercise Clause to the states. 

While the right to have religious beliefs is absolute, the freedom to act on such beliefs is not absolute.

The oppressive, egregious, zealots who have brought HB2 to the people of NC must bear its full burden alone.

No compromise on HB2.

Thank you,

Peter
