Susan Barnette started this petition to Christians & Christian Realtors

The National Association of Realtors (NAR) hate speech policy is too vague to be enforced and the NAR is unlawfully punishing christians for exercising the rights given to them under the Human Rights Act and the Equality Act of 2010. In their published Code of Ethics, they list religion as a protected class(Article 10) - which they should because it is also a federal law. However in this same Code of Ethics they have adopted a Standard of Practice that allows for a christian exercising their religious beliefs to be punished/expelled, etc. from membership therefore costing them their way of making a living. A Realtor needs access to a Multiple Listing Service (MLS) to have the data needed to service their customers and clients.If a christian is found to be in violation of their new far reaching Standard of Practice, they lose this access. When this was questioned prior to them adding this violation to their Code of Ethics, those questioning were told: "you do not have to be a member". In other words, they don't care to step on one persons rights to live and make a living the way they want to. The NAR is virtually signalling that any one in the world that is a person of faith, is considered to be a bigot. See the information in the following links where a Realtor is being punished for this right now:

We do not want to discriminate, we just want to be able to practice our religion as guaranteed in our Constitution. The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution says that everyone in the United States has the right to practice his or her own religion, or no religion at all. 

Perhaps it's time that the public knows that the NAR are anti Christian, Jewish and Muslim and will require the members to deny their faith privately and publicly.

Sign this petition to protect your religious rights AND still be allowed to be a REALTOR and in support of our peer Brandon Huber.
