The Michelangelo Signorile Show on SiriusXM PROGRESS ch.127

Last Wednesday, as part of the ongoing backlash to Marriage Equality, the Tennessee House of Representatives passed a bill that would allow mental health counselors to turn patients away based on the counselors' religious beliefs and or personal principles.  The state Senate has also approved the bill and it will be shortly heading to the Governor’s desk for his signature.  Joining me today to talk all about this bill which legalize discrimination in Tennessee is Art Terrazas, Director of Government Affairs for the American Counseling Association which has called the bill an "unprecedented attack" on the counseling profession and government overreach.
