Michigan state senator (and Democrat) Gretchen Whitmer has already spoken out against her Republican colleagues’ changes to anti-bullying legislation which would allow exemptions for people with “sincerely held religious belief or moral conviction.” The legislation is now in the House, where it will hopefully be corrected.
In the meantime, Whitmer is featured in a new video in which she reads letters from children urging her to get that exemption out of there. Bullying is bullying no matter who does it, and religious people who torment gay classmates deserve the same punishment as anyone else. Your Bible shouldn’t make you immune from punishment.
If you live in Michigan, please contact your representatives and tell them to support real anti-bullying legislation, not any kind that prevents certain children from getting away with it because they have a Bible in their hands.
