LGBT groups have come out strongly against new laws in Michigan and North Carolina that promote anti-LGBT discrimination under the guise of “religious freedom.”
In Michigan, Gov. Rick Snyder signed three bills into law allowing adoption agencies to use their religious beliefs to refuse to work with same-sex couples. In North Carolina, meanwhile, the state House voted today to override Gov. Pat McCrory’s veto of a bill allowing public officials to opt out of marrying same-sex couples for “sincerely held religious” objections.
Lambda Legal, called these measures “in some ways worse than what happened in Indiana because Michigan and North Carolina will be using tax dollars to support such discrimination. Good public policy helps people—it shouldn’t hurt them.”
