ATLANTA - Volunteers dropped off box after box of emails at the Governor Nathan Deal's office on Wednesday. About 75,000 printed emails speak to Georgians concerns over proposed Religious Freedom legislation.
Headed up by Georgia Equality, opponents of the legislation said they want the governor to know how people and even businesses in the state could be impacted if lawmakers approve House Bill 757. The legislation would make it illegal for the government to punish someone for their actions when those actions are guided by a religious belief that marriage should be between a man and a woman.
Both the House and Senate have passed versions of the Religious Freedom bill, but now, they must reconcile the language between the two for it to go on to be approved by the governor.
