At a press conference on Monday, Georgia's three openly LGBT state lawmakers called on Governor Nathan Deal to veto a bill critics say would allow businesses to discriminate against the LGBT community.

Lawmakers last week approved House Bill 757 after replacing direct references to same-sex marriages with allowing religious groups to deny services “that violate such faith-based organization's sincerely held religious beliefs.”

“As an African-American black woman I am personally offended,” state Rep. Keisha Waites said. “This bill personally impacts my family and I.”

Rep. Park Cannon said that the legislation will “enable discrimination.”

“House Bill 757 will allow for discrimination on sincerely held religious beliefs,” Cannon said. “We continue to regress by passing sweeping discrimination measures like House Bill 757. I am sure the state of Georgia is better than this. This bill will only throw us off course.”

Rep. Karla Drenner added: “When we allow discrimination in any form, we can no longer call ourselves free. Freedom is an all or nothing principle. … I respectfully call on the governor to veto this bill.”

Hundreds of companies led by San Francisco-based Salesforce have also spoken out against the measure, including the NFL.
