SJR39 is a sweeping attempt to codify protection for antigay bias in Missouri's constitution under the ruse of protecting ministers from being forced to perform same sex weddings, which they are not now and have never been compelled to do. When Antonin Scalia raised this red herring from the bench of the U.S. Supreme Court in 2015, he was shot down by Justices Kagan and Breyer.
Bernie Sanders tweeted his support, and, later, so did Hillary Clinton.
Standing up for our LGBTQ sisters and brothers is the duty of all elected officials. This should make us all proud. https://t.co/r4Rw5xInA8— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) March 9, 2016
