The Southern Christian Leadership Conference has come out in support of HB2.
GREENSBORO, N.C. — The Southern Christian Leadership Conference of North Carolina has announced that they support Gov. Pat McCrory on the controversial so-called “Bathroom Bill.”
“This is not the same civil rights violation which the people of color have experienced,” the organization said in a prepared statement.
“This is a religious issue, where the U.S. government is attempting to force the people in North Carolina to change their spiritual and moral beliefs.”
The Southern Christian Leadership Conference is an African-American civil rights organization that had a large role in the American Civil Rights Movement.
Some people might not understand just how significant this is.
