Discriminating Discrimination

This is a new one. Republicans have introduced a bill that prevents states from discriminating against religious organizations that discriminate. So if a faith-based organization discriminates against someone (because of their religious beliefs), then the state can’t discriminate against that organization by reducing funding to them.

It was bad enough when the “religious beliefs” of companies (like Hobby Lobby) trumped the religious beliefs of their employees. But now religious organizations can discriminate against the people they are being paid to serve, and the states can’t do anything about it.

    The Utah Senate just passed legislation that would allow public officials to refuse to marry same-sex couples if doing so conflicts with the public officials’ religious beliefs. Same-sex marriage is legal in Utah, and the legislation is now winding its way to the Utah House.
