Diskriminering görs åter laglig i vissa delstater i USA - om den är religiöst grundad

Jag lyfter upp en kommentar av signaturen John P till ett inlägg:

På andra sidan atlanten har det varit en hel del ståhej om "religiösa lagar" vs. Människosyn. Nyligen skrev Apples VD Tim Cook en debattartikel angående diskriminerande religiös lagstiftning:

Tim Cook: Pro-discrimination discrimination ‘religious freedom’ laws are dangerous
A wave of legislation, introduced in more than two dozen states, would allow people to discriminate against their neighbors. Some, such as the bill enacted in Indiana last week that drew a national outcry and one passed in Arkansas, say individuals can cite their personal religious beliefs to refuse service to a customer or resist a state nondiscrimination law.
Others are more transparent in their effort to discriminate. Legislation being considered in Texas would strip the salaries and pensions of clerks who issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples — even if the Supreme Court strikes down Texas’ marriage ban later this year. In total, there are nearly 100 bills designed to enshrine discrimination in state law.
This isn’t a political issue. It isn’t a religious issue. This is about how we treat each other as human beings. Opposing discrimination takes courage. With the lives and dignity of so many people at stake, it’s time for all of us to be courageous.
