  • Interfaith group will work to overturn HB2.

    Nearly 70 clergy from several faith traditions pledged Tuesday to do whatever they can to overturn North Carolina’s controversial new law limiting legal protection for LGBT persons. “We are morally outraged about this rarely used political maneuver by the State Senate and House to bypass the will of Charlotte’s City Council,” the Rev. Robin Tanner, lead minister at the Piedmont Unitarian Universalist Church, said in a statement. “However, we are even more disturbed about the fact that this effort denies entire segments of the population their due protections as citizens.” At a news conference Tuesday, members of the interfaith Charlotte Clergy Coalition for Justice said they would financially support the lawsuit recently filed by the ACLU to challenge HB2. They’re planning a rally April 24. “We will support every legal effort to overturn HB,” Tanner said.
