CNN’s Don Lemon: Religious Liberty is “Code For Discrimination”

Christian businesses who refuse to pay for their employees’ abortion coverage or participate in homosexual weddings now face persecution and litigation across the nation.

In response the Mississippi Senate voted Wednesday to pass a religious freedom bill.

The legislation, named the Protecting Freedom of Conscience from Government Discrimination Act,  prohibits government from punishing businesses, social workers and public employees for denying services based on the belief that marriage is between a man and a woman.

It also protects individuals who believe gender is determined at birth.

Liberals, like CNN’s Don Lemon, claim the bill will have sweeping anti-LGBT repercussions for the United States.

From NewsBusters:

CNN’s Don Lemon acted more like a socially-left activist than a journalist on Friday’s New Day, as he moderated a panel discussion on a proposed religious liberty law in Mississippi. Lemon twice misrepresented what the law actually says, and asked a LGBT activist, “Religious liberty — is that just a code for discrimination — I don’t want to provide services to certain people? Isn’t that just a code?” He was more explicit later in the segment: “People in certain professions…wouldn’t have to serve certain people — which, at its base, is discrimination.”

Anchor Alisyn Camerota teased the discussion by hyping that “a new religious liberty bill in Mississippi sparking outrage — some critics call it the most discriminatory measure ever written. It targets gays and lesbians.” Lemon, acting as a substitute anchor for Chris Cuomo, turned to the Family Research Council’s Peter Sprigg and Rob Hill of the Human Rights Campaign’s office in Mississippi.

No Don Lemon. “Religious liberty” is enshrined in the 1st Amendment.

It’s what keeps progressive leftists from making moral values illegal in the USA.

The omissions of the left are always interesting–when’s the last time you saw a poll on Islamic feelings of same-sex marriage? To the left the only enemy is the white Christian.

Try to hire a halal bakery to prepare the cake for a gay wedding. Let’s see how that goes.
