They've added their names to a petition against LGBT discrimination. In their petition, they write, "As leaders of faith representing a wide variety of spiritual expressions in northeast Florida, we strongly support full civil rights...

This most recent iteration of the protections hasn't come before the council for a vote yet, but already saw public comment at the first city council meeting of the year.
