Michigan House Latest To Pass “Religious Freedom Restoration” Bill That Allows Discrimination Against LGBT’s

Evil Prayers

 

Michigan has joined the number of Republican controlled states that are on their way to passing  a “Religious Liberty and Freedom” bills that would allow anyone who holds any sort of dangerous religious belief against anyone but their own the right to discriminate against them without any form of punishment.

Michigan’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act would allow, “Christian”  EMT’s the right  to refuse emergency treatment to a gay person or a pharmacist to refuse to refill HIV medication, because God decreed gays and lesbians should be put to death.

Michigan Speaker Bolger fast tracked the bill, which passed 59-50 along party lines. “I support individual liberty and I support religious freedom,” Bolger said. “I have been horrified as some have claimed that a person’s faith should only be practiced while hiding in their home or in their church.”

If it passes in the Michigan Senate and is signed by Governor Rick Snyder, a Republican, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act will become law.

At the House committee meeting that considered the measure “Pastor” Stacy Swimp President of the Frederick Douglass Society told the committee that “No one from the LGBT community has ever had fire hoses turned on them by the police department, they have never had to drink out of an LGBT water fountain, There is no record of LGBT — homosexuals, lesbians—being forced to sit at the back of the bus in an LGBT section.

Swimp who advocates against LGBT equality and same-sex marriage in Michigan also claims that “The “Homosexual Agenda” is, by nature, anti Black and genocidal.”
