Suit Challenges Tennessee Law Allowing Counselors To Refuse To Counsel Gays

AP reports that a state court lawsuit has been filed in Clinton, Tennessee by two gay rights activists challenging HB 1840, a new Tennessee law that allows therapists to assert their conflicting sincerely held principles to refuse to counsel clients on goals or behaviors.  The suit contends that the law violates the equal treatment provisions of the Tennessee Constitution.
