Religious Discrimination is Still a Normal Occurrence

Written By Debra Murray

Recently, there have been many cases of religious discrimination, such as the gay couple who were refused service at a bakery in Washington, and a t-shirt business in Lexington, Kentucky refused to make shirts for Pride.

“Under the Constitution, same-sex couples seek in marriage the same legal treatment as opposite-sex couples, and it would disparage their choices and diminish their personhood to deny them this right,” Kennedy wrote in an interview with the New York Times.

Religious discrimination works both ways, like in the cases above where someone didn’t receive equal treatment because of someone else’s religion, there are also cases where people are harassed due to their personal religion. In a study from 2006-2010 found that Christians are the most discriminated against in 168 countries.

“When people stand up to their religious liberties, they win,” said Justin Butterfield in an interview with Daily Singal.
