A resolution declaring there is "no place for hatred, religious intolerance or bias to flourish within Hamilton County, Tennessee," and declaring the community a "Bias-Free Zone against any form of hatred and/or bigotry toward other human beings" passed the Hamilton County Commission by unanimous vote Wednesday. 

Commissioner Warren Mackey sponsored the resolution and only Commissioner Greg Martin had any comments, suggesting word changes to embrace diversity of religious belief.

The resolution declares that "it is the desire of this county legislative body to declare Hamilton County as a hatred and bias-free community were those seeking to enjoy the natural God-given assets available herein, i.e., mountains, rivers and the great outdoors, as well as the inalienable rights, peace, and harmony offered by its citizens, are shielded from the promotion and advocacy of any action based upon any form of hatred, or bias, and/or intolerance toward other human beings."
