NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Two Tennessee State Representatives have been working on the "Tennessee Pastor Protection Bill" hoping to protect pastors, like Maury Davis, who said the Supreme Court's decision goes against our founding fathers.

“I think they would be a little astonished with the direction our nation has gone,” Davis said.

Davis, of Cornerstone Nashville, said the Supreme Court crossed the line by removing states' rights, but that decision won't change his beliefs.

He said he will remain kind to all people while maintaining his convictions.

“I would not perform a marriage of people that were not believers in Jesus Christ and committed to the word of God, and so that would not only include a gay marriage, it would include adult child marriage, animal marriage,” Davis said. “You know this philosophy that if I love somebody I should be able to be with them, how far does that go? That’s my great concern.”

Davis said his belief has been in the Bible, which he said very clearly condemns homosexuality.
