A Sturgeon Bay pastor disagrees with a freedom of religion ruling in De Pere

A Sturgeon Bay pastor believes a Brown County judge went against biblical teachings in a freedom of religion case.  The judge ruled a De Pere ordinance banning discrimination against transgender individuals violated area churches freedom of religion.  That ordinance prohibited discrimination by landlords, employers and businesses based on gender identity or expression.  The churches involved in the case claimed following the ordinance went against their biblical beliefs and teachings.  But Reverend Richard Feyen, pastor of Hope United Church of Christ in Sturgeon Bay, says using scripture to defend discrimination against anyone also goes against biblical beliefs and teachings.



Reverend Feyen says he disagrees with pastoral leaders who use scripture specifically against the LGBTQ community.
