Why Conservatives Oppose Discrimination:


Basic American Values

As proud conservatives, we believe every American should have the freedom to work hard, earn a living, and contribute to communities. Those aren’t just conservative values — they’re American values.


The Golden Rule

The Golden Rule teaches us to treat others the way we want to be treated — with dignity and respect. That’s why we support freedom and opportunity for all Americans, including our LGBTQ neighbors and their families.


Discrimination is Bad For Business

Business leaders across the nation agree: Discrimination is bad for business. Our economy — and our nation — is at its best when all people are free to work hard and prosper in their daily lives.

"We do not have a belief in my way of looking at religion that says we have to discriminate against anybody. ... What the New Testament teaches us is that Jesus reached out to those who were considered the outcasts, the ones that did not conform to the religious societies' view of the world."

Governor Nathan Deal (R-Ga.)

"You ought to treat everybody fairly and give everybody a chance to serve. Any American who wants to serve our country and is able to meet those standards should have the opportunity to do so."
