Kelly Loeffler on Civil Rights

 

 


Allow discrimination against LGBTQ for religious reasons

Q: Protect against discrimination based on sexual orientation?

Kelly Loeffler: Not if it interferes with religious faith. "People of faith should be protected."

Raphael Warnock: Yes. Will "protect members of the LGBTQ+ community from housing, financial, and employment discrimination."

Black Lives Matter is "anti-Semitic" and anti-family

"[Black Lives Matter] is a very divisive organization based on Marxist principles," Loeffler told Fox News's Laura Ingraham. "This is an organization that seeks to destroy the American principles and I had to draw the line." Loeffler also called the Black Lives Matter group "anti-Semitic" and claimed that the group is against the "nuclear family." Loeffler responded that "[t]here's no room in this country for racism, but this isn't what the Black Lives Matter political organization is about."

Anger over Floyd murder justifiable; destruction is not

"In the wake of George Floyd's tragic death, many Americans are rightfully angered and in pain," said Loeffler. "While our anger and grief are intense and justifiable, the destruction we have seen across the country is not. Last night, we saw this in Atlanta, which has a long history of peaceful protests. Americans have a Constitutional right to speak out and peacefully assemble, but that's not what we saw last night."

Supports religious liberty policy seen as discriminatory

Loeffler isn't shy about her belief that legislation should be in place to protect one's ability "to act according to our religious beliefs. I believe that people of faith should be free to make statements without fear of persecution." Her comments represent an effort to distance herself from the team she owns. The Atlanta Dream joined other Georgia businesses who view religious liberty policy as an excuse to legally discriminate against LGBTQ people.

Strongly anti-gender identity, according to AFA survey.

Loeffler opposes the AFA survey question on gender identity

The AFA inferred whether candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'I support adding sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as protected classes in non-discrimination laws'? Self-description: (American Family Association helps produce iVoterGuides): "Grounded in God; rooted in research"; they "thoroughly investigate candidates"; when they cannot "evaluate with confidence, they receive an 'Insufficient' rating" (& we exclude)
