I will always be a proud ally of the LGBTQ community and support equality for every Missourian. We should be a neighbor to all. Our role in life is not to judge, our role is to love one another. The beauty of our county is that we embrace diversity. We need to recognize and appreciate diversity in every community.
Religious values vary from person to person. Religious freedom means one person’s religious values don’t have to be someone else’s religious values. Why should using the restroom, buying a cake, getting a marriage license, renting an apartment, or finding employment be harder for others than it is for us? We are all beautifully diverse people and we need to embrace one another.
