Christians using religion to negate other people’s civil rights. Again !

TEXAS: Republicans Advance Bill To Allow Doctors And Many Others To Discriminate Against LGBT Citizens

https://www.joemygod.com/2019/03/texas-republicans-advance-bill-to-allow-doctors-and-many-others-to-discriminate-against-lgbt-citizens/

The Austin Statesman reports:

Opening what promises to be one of the most contentious fights of the 2019 legislative session, a Senate committee on Monday approved a bill to give state-licensed professionals — including doctors, lawyers, pharmacists and barbers — broad protection for actions taken according to their religious beliefs.

Opponents said the bill, and more than a dozen similar measures that have not yet been acted upon, would give religious people, particularly conservative Christians, the power to discriminate against gay, lesbian and transgender people as well as anyone they don’t want to do business with or serve.

  1. This is why there should be a requirement for public office that the politicians religious beliefs are secondary to needs of the people. Better yet being religious is an impediment to getting elected.

    • Hello Nan. Yes I can sympathize. I live in Florida and for the longest time we had to put up with a constant assult on LGBTQ. The famous hater Anita Bryant came from Florida when she started her attacks on gay people. Now we are better know for the “Florida Man” stupidity. But if anyone could stand their ground in an argument with fundys in Texas about LGBTQ it would be the Professor. Hugs
