Whew. It has been a crazy couple of weeks. Did you miss me again? I didn't mean to be gone this long from my blog, but several things kept me away...the most fun of which was the Colorado Christian Writers Conference in Estes Park. As usual, it was awesome!
Back to business...
If you're in Colorado, you need to know about our state Senate Bill 200. (If you're not from Colorado, you should be aware of what's happening here.) This bill adds religion and sexual orientation to state nondiscrimination statutes. Sounds good, right? It's not!
This is NOT a step forward for religious freedom! If passed, organizations including small and home-based businesses would be in trouble is they refused to offer or sell goods or services to homosexuals, bisexuals, "transgendered" and transsexuals, whether for religious or moral reasons.
The Colorado Senate has already passed this bill and it is on the Governor's desk waiting for him to sign it.
You must act FAST if you're going to make a difference.
Are you ready to use your voice? To speak out? PLLLLLLEEEEEEAAAAAAAAAAAASSSSE?! Just do it!
Here are three things you can do. (And please do ALL THREE!):
1.) Call Governor Ritter's office and voice your opposition to SB 200: (303)866-2471
2.) E-mail the Governor and ask him to please Veto SB 200: E-mail Gov. Ritter.
3.) Read more about Colorado's Senate Bill 200 here.
If you're not willing to take action now...today...then what right will you have to complain if this bill gets passed?
