The Montana Supreme Court sets rules of professional conduct for lawyers in Montana. Recently they proposed a new rule threatening to disbar lawyers for “verbal conduct” that discriminates against transgender and gay people. That could include something as simple as writing a letter to the editor saying that marriage is between one man and one woman.
This resolution simply lets the Supreme Court know that their proposed rule is out of line.

It’s critical to defend the right of Christians in the legal profession to speak out in favor of traditional marriage and other areas where the word of God disagrees with modern culture. This resolution is an important first step.
