A closer look at Michigan's religious freedom restoration act that is making waves in Lansing."This is much ado about nothing and it's really about a license to discriminate more than anything," said Kary Moss, executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Michigan. It's what opponents are saying about the Religious Freedom Restoration Act now pending before the state Senate after passing the House of Representatives last week. "It basically would allow anybody who claims a sincerely held religious belief to engage in any discrimination," Moss said. Moss says it's unclear just what kind of impact this legislation would have. "We don't want people to end up hostage to someone else's religious beliefs," said Sommer Foster, of Equality Michigan. "We don't want someone who is in need of their emergency medical technician, social worker or from any governmental agency to not get the service that they need because of who they are."
i doubt this even gets voted on in the senate but even if it does it will eventually be thrown out by a higher court since it violates the constitution.
Its AMAZING the panic and fear that equal rights brings out in the nutters that they are so desperate to try stuff like this. Hell if your first way of violating rights gets defeated i guess you try to make up new ways. Sad and pathetic.
Whats even more weird is there must be a lot of people behind close doors that are this silly to think like that or its another one of those things that politicians just THINK people want because of the squeaky wheels because I dont know anybody in real life that supports this violation of rights. Of course the people (religious/non) i personal know are just a small scale but there are none. In fact they opposes legislation like this and see its lunacy and its infringement on others.
