The bill is one version of legislation now pending in several states that LGBT rights advocates say could legalize anti-gay discrimination, as TPM has reported. It would require that the government have a compelling reason to interfere with a person's exercise of their religion, which would effectively allow discrimination against LGBT people, according to advocates.

Progress overnight on deployment of new commenting system. We hope to move into a short beta-testing phase shortly.
