House GOP Push For Bill That Would Allow For Nationwide Discrimination Of Married Gay Couples
House Republicans lead by Rep. Raúl Labrador (R-ID) have proposed legislation that would completely shield any individual, organization or business who discriminates against married same-sex couples from consequences of any kind.
Reads part of the proposed legislation:
The Federal Government shall not take an adverse action against a person, on the basis that such person acts in accordance with a religious belief that marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman, or that sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage.
The far reaching implications of this myopic and outstandingly anti-American piece of legislation are clear (gay couples everywhere could legally be discriminated against in ways that could severely impact their lives), so it's no surprise that the National Organization for Marriage was quick to join the circle jerk.
