On Jan. 3, the Sunday before the start of the 2016 legislative session, two faith groups will join with Freedom Indiana to co-sponsor a faith vigil supporting updating the Indiana civil rights law to include protections against discrimination for gay and transgender people.
Reconciling Ministries Network of Indiana (RMN) mobilizes United Methodists of all sexual orientations and gender identities to transform the church and world into the full expression of Christ’s inclusive love.
The Interfaith Coalition on Nondiscrimination (ICON) is an organization of people of faith who are concerned about the consequences of intolerance against sexual and gender minorities.
Bestselling Christian author Phil Gulley, a pastor in Danville, will be the keynote speaker at the vigil. Gulley has published 20 books, including the acclaimed Harmony series chronicling life in the eccentric Quaker community of Harmony, Ind., and the bestselling Porch Talk series of inspirational and humorous essays.
“This is an opportunity for three groups that want to end legal discrimination against gay and transgender people to come together to pray that lawmakers update our civil rights law to achieve that goal,” said Freedom Indiana campaign manager Chris Paulsen.
