New campaign from SC activist group supports LGBTQ+ community
LAURENS, S.C. (FOX Carolina) - The Alliance For Full Acceptance recently announced their new campaign, which includes a billboard along I-385 in Laurens County.
The new billboard is located along I-385 near Highway 101.
“People who use religion to excuse their bigotry and hate hurt our children and damage our communities,” said AFFA Executive Director Chase Glenn. “Everyone has the right to live free from discrimination and persecution, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.”
The campaign comes days after South Carolina Attorney General Alan Wilson joined attorneys general from 20 other states to file a brief asking the U.S. Supreme Court to remove an injunction blocking West Virginia’s enforcement of its Save Women’s Sports Act. Under the act, all biological males, including those who identify as transgender, would be ineligible for participation on female sports teams.
“LGBTQ+ people are an integral part of the human family who are all loved and cherished by God,” said Reverend Adam Shoemaker of St. Stephen’s Episcopal Church. “We believe affirming legislation that fully supports marriage equality and LGBTQ+ families is what justice looks like, for justice is what love looks like in public.”
