• The law is intended to hurt gay people.

    The intention of the law is to privilege the belief that homosexuality is sinful above the day to day rights of gay men and women in the United States. The law will give registrars the license to refuse to marry gay couples and employers and schools the right to directly discriminate against these people. Therefore it is absolutely certain that this law will negatively impact the gay community.

  • Yes, this law could encourage hate speech.

    Free speech under the First Amendment is constitutionally protected for every American. However, hate speech which threatens certain groups should not be tolerated. The proposed First Amendment Defense Act could potentially hurt the LGBTQ community. This bill could allow people to engage in threatening hate speech, which might insight harm toward the LGBTQ community.

  • Yes it will

    Trump has pledged to sign the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA), if passed by congress. It was first introduced in the House on June 17, 2015 and would effectively legalize anti-LGBTQ discrimination across the board, including among employers, businesses, landlords and healthcare providers, as long as they claim to be motivated by a firmly held religious beliefs. This is a crime, and will cause nothing but harm to the LGBTQ community, We should be embracing, not tolerating this loving community

  • At it's face, no

    There is no real answer here. I am unclear on every detail involved here.
    But a government employee gives up that right when they become a government employee. This goes to the government not establishing or promoting a religion.
    However, a privately owned business or religious entity should not be forced to violate their beliefs.
    Especially, when disproving/proving a subject has not happened beyond a shadow of a doubt.

  • People should have a choice.

    It is much better for the LGBTQ community if people choose to love them by choice, not by force. People who refuse service to someone based on their sexual identification and preferences could receive criticism from other people, and other people could choose not to go to their business. That would change people's minds much faster than laws that don't give people a choice.
