“In response to calls for Prince William Board of Supervisor member, Supervisor Jeanine Lawson, R-Brentsville, to apologize to a lesbian couple for a conversation with their daughter where Lawson expressed her religious views about having a mother and father in the home, we are calling on the people of Virginia to stand with Mrs. Lawson.
Mrs. Lawson’s right to express her Judeo-Christian views are protected by the First Amendment. When will the intolerant left stop the bullying of Christians for speaking out? Tolerance is a two-way street.
The real controversy here is not Mrs. Lawson’s statements, but the intolerance shown to her God-given right to share her ideals in the public square without attempts to shut out her conservative voice.
In addition, Mrs. Lawson’s views, which are mainstream, are backed by sound research that children do better when raised in homes with a mom and a dad.
Jeannine Lawson should not be asked to apologize for expressing her views.
The Virginia First Foundation firmly stands by Supervisor Lawson’s right to free speech and independent thinking, albeit counter to what the current culture demands, and we are asking the people of Virginia to do the same.”
