Same-Sex Couples Receive the Same Right

In recent news, Democrats are revealing an expansive anti-discrimination bill that will offer LGBT individuals employment, housing and education protections.

There currently are no real laws that protect LGBT people’s rights. “In most states, a same-sex couple can get married on Saturday, post pictures on Facebook on Sunday, and then risk being fired from their job or kicked out of their apartment on Monday. A majority of states in our country do not have laws that protect LGBT individuals against discrimination,” said the lead sponsor in the house of Rhode Island, David Cicilline.

This new bill will extend the rights and protections it grants under the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to LGBT individuals as well. The new bill at hand states that the federal government “shall not take any discriminatory action against a person, wholly or partially on the basis that such person believes or acts in accordance with a religious belief or moral conviction that marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman, or that sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage (DeBonis, 2015).”

This is another landmark proposal that has followed the recent decision to make gay marriage legal across our nation.

    Coming in, we were unsure if we had a case. After meeting with Peter Brodhead, we were very confident with him. I was always comfortable because everyone was professional and friendly.
