Why Conservatives Oppose Discrimination:

1

Basic American Values

As proud conservatives, we believe every American should have the freedom to work hard, earn a decent living, and be able to provide for their families. Those aren’t just conservative values - they are American values.

2

The Golden Rule

The golden rule teaches us to treat others the way we want to be treated. That’s why I support freedom and opportunity for all of my fellow Americans, including my LGBTQ neighbors and their families.

Discrimination is Bad For Business

Business leaders across the nation agree: discrimination is bad for business. Our economy -and our nation - is at its best when all people are free to work hard and prosper in their daily lives.

"We do not have a belief in my way of looking at religion that says we have to discriminate against anybody. ... What the New Testament teaches us is that Jesus reached out to those who were considered the outcasts, the ones that did not conform to the religious societies' view of the world."

Governor Nathan Deal (R-Ga.)

“[Legislation targeting transgender students for discrimination] is a solution in search of a problem. ... There are tens of millions of dollars of tournaments that are at risk if the state jumps into this arena unnecessarily."

Governor Dennis Daugaard (R-S.D.)

"Fighting for gay rights, transgender rights is such an important part of my DNA and what I do."

Former Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.)

"You ought to treat everybody fairly and give everybody a chance to serve. Any American who wants to serve our country and is able to meet those standards should have the opportunity to do so."

Senator Richard Shelby (R-Ala.)

"I don’t believe [anti-transgender legislation is] necessary. There’s not one instance that I’m aware of. When we look at our situation, we’re not hearing of anybody’s religious liberties that are being violated, and we’re again not hearing any citizens that are being violated in terms of freedoms."

Former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley (R-S.C.)
