Even with the tremendous progress made toward equality for LGBTQ Americans in recent years, there are still many who try to use religion to justify discrimination.

Employment and health care are two critical areas in which LGBTQ people regularly face discrimination in the name of religion – but it doesn’t stop there. Clerks harass same-sex couples trying to get marriage licenses, LGBTQ parents are still blocked when they go to adopt children and some businesses refuse to serve same-sex couples.

Americans United is fighting back through our Protect Thy Neighbor campaign because we believe that religion should not be used as an excuse to deny equality to our LGBTQ neighbors.
