This bill wouldn't only affect the LGBT community, but also unmarried couples, women, racial minorities, religious minorities, people living with disabilities and many more. For more specific information on the bill, click here ( http://www.legis.ga.gov/Legislation/en-US/display/20152016/HB/757 ) It's imperative that this bill does not get passed, not only because it's the right thing, but also because a lot of people's jobs and livelihoods depend on it.

For those who do believe that people should be turned away/discriminated against, here are some bible quotes for you.
1 John 4:20 - Whoever claims to love God yet hates a brother or sister is a liar. For whoever does not love their brother and sister, whom they have seen, cannot love God, whom they have not seen.
Hebrews 13:2- Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by this some have entertained angels without knowing it.
Matthew 7:1- Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.
