The hate bill watch: 14 anti-LGBT bills

BUT, IN ARKANSAS: Being gay is another matter.
  • BUT, IN ARKANSAS: Being gay is another matter.
Here's a handy spread sheet (I think I've cleared up access issue on Google docs, let me know if not) on the many bills filed aimed at the rights of transgender and LGBT people. Most are aimed at doing harm to those rights, of course.

The spread sheet includes links to each bill. Among the latest efforts to marginalize human beings is Rep. Bob Ballinger's idea to provide broad protection for people who discriminate in the name of religion. It would protect government payments and tax benefits for those who refuse to serve or even actively discriminate against LGBT people because, well, their morals demand it.

Marriage, bathrooms, indecent exposure, birth certificates, employment discrimination, housing discrimination, public accommodations discrimination. It's all covered. Golden rule? Don't bother looking.

Dark days these are.
