If you're going to side with Sally Kern, you might as well own up to it.
Oklahoma State Rep. Emily Virgin is hoping to add an amendment to a proposed "license to discriminate" bill that would require businesses planning on refusing service to LGBT customers to first post a public notice of their intent to discriminate, The Gaily reports:
Language of the amendment: "B. Any person not wanting to participate in any of the activities set forth in subsection A of this section based on sexual orientation, gender identity or race of either party to the marriage shall post notice of such refusal in a manner clearly visible to the public in all places of business, including websites. The notice may refer to the person’s religious beliefs, but shall state specifically which couples the business does not serve by referring to a refusal based upon sexual orientation, gender identity or race."
“Thank you to Representative Virgin for calling out the level of segregation allowed under this legislation," said Troy Stevenson, Executive Director of LGBT advocacy group Freedom Oklahoma. "If the state of Oklahoma is going to protect discrimination, then at the very least, businesses should be required to own their bias, and post it publicly for the world to see.”
