Stop the Legalize Discrimination Against Gays Bill

Victory! The creator of this petition declared the campaign a success. You can still sign the petition to show support.

I oppose Rep. Denlinger's legal discrimination bill. Please do not co-sponsor this attempt to amend the Pennsylvania Constitution to allow people to legally discriminate against anyone as long as their discrimination is based on "sincerely held beliefs."

Why is this important?

Rep. Gordon Denlinger, a Republican State Representative from Lancaster County, wants to amend the Pennsylvania Constitution to allow people to discriminate based on "sincerely held beliefs."

According to Philly.com, under Denlinger’s proposed Freedom of Conscience Amendment, “employers, store owners, realtors, motel managers, etc., could deny jobs, groceries, homes or rooms to anyone (tall, short, pregnant, Catholic, Jewish, gay, Goth, Democrat, newspaper columnist) offending their beliefs. Just as long as those beliefs are ‘sincerely held.’”

But the real reason for this bill is to legalize discrimination against LGBT people.

Adding insult to injury, Denlinger introduced this outrageous idea on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. This is part of a move among some in the Republican Party to turn back the clock to the pre-Civil Rights Act period.

We can't let this movement gain momentum. Tell Rep. Denlinger, and your State Representative that we don't want legal discrimination in Pennsylvania.
