House Bill 43 : Controversial ‘Pastor Protection Act’ to be topic of presentation in The Villages

A “Protect My Ministry” event is coming to The Villages later this month.
The event is one of many being held around the state in an effort to get clergy behind House Bill 43. The Pastor Protection Act would shield pastors from legal reprisals for not performing gay marriages. Local pastors attending the event will be provided legal advice from the Florida Family Policy Council.
The LGBT community has interpreted the Pastor Protection Act as an affront to gay marriage which became legal in the United States after a Supreme Court ruling earlier this year. A legislative candidate at an event earlier this month, warned The Villages Rainbow Family & Friends group about House Bill 43.
The event in The Villages is set for 9 to 11 a.m. Oct. 21 at Eisenhower Recreation Center. The event is free, but advance registration is required. A complimentary breakfast is included.
