Interfaith coalition of clergy rally against House Bill 2

New Law_190998

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – A group of clergy members representing a number of denominations is planning to hold a rally at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Charlotte to call for the repeal of North Carolina’s House Bill 2.

The group organizing the rally says more than 400 clergy members will take part in Thursday’s event, including 100 from North Carolina.

The law passed in late March limits protections for LGBT residents and prevents transgender people from using public restrooms of the gender they identify with.

A news release from Faith in Public Life said the law divides congregations, the state and country and that the coalition of clergy is morally opposed to it.
