NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  Reactions are mixed in Tennessee to this week’s Supreme Court decision protecting LGBT workers from employment discrimination.

Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander broke ranks with many fellow Republicans to say every American is, “entitled to dignity and respect." The Senator went on to say the Supreme Court has spoken on the issue and it's now the law of the land.

The influential Family Action Council of Tennessee expressed a very different reaction. In a twitter post, the Evangelical Christian advocacy group argues the Supreme Court has given sex a meaning Congress did not intend, and one that “is not even found in modern dictionaries.”
