A few weeks ago, I was talking about the Pastor protection act that Republicans wanted to pass in the state of Georgia. The act provides additional protection to pastors allowing them not to perform marriages between same-sex couples. Subsequently, a Senate committee had made a change in the law by adding a section prohibiting the government to prosecute any person or business that discriminates against LGBT persons because of their religion.
Well, today is good news that scans for the moment our concern about this law since the Republican governor has decided to veto the bill.
Georgia lawmakers have approved a bill that will allow religious leaders not to celebrate marriages between same-sex people.
