Rep. David Cicilline (D-RI) on The LGBTQ+ Protections In The Equality Act | MSNBC


    1. @William H Tweatledumb aka Willy H Muzak aka Timmy Liar aka………… Back to spread more hate and lies. Must be a miserable life if this is all you have going for you.

  1. In the last election, Utah finally removed “slavery” from it’s State Constitution.
    Let’s hope it doesn’t take 155 years for LGBTQ protections.

    1. @Easy Money You’re trying to reason with someone and their group believe in lizard people and soilent green, just saying.

    2. What protection? Are you people stupid? You get to work right? You get to get married right? You get to get divorced an an fired like anybody else. The only thing you don’t get an WILL NEVER GET . IS INTO HEAVEN. Sorry not sorry GODS RULE no man can change that.

  2. It’s so nice NOT to hear about what the president is doing and in the news everyday. It’s nice NOT to hear about tweets and twitter which like most social media = GOSSIP, not facts. We can actually start talking about OTHER issues that affect us or needs attention drawn to it.

    1. @gunnyo50 Another insurrectionist endorser? I hope he doesn’t plan on taking a flight anywhere anytime soon. ALL participants at donnie’s terror party on Jan 6th, 2021 are now on the NO-FLY List. We all know who gets to be on that special list.
      I found the man crying and screaming at the airport totally HILARIOUS! Must see tv! lol

    2. Despite all the lies from the far left leaders, whom love China more than the U.S., calling for unity and peace the U.S. government under Biden/Harris is reviving an Obama era law that specifically targets conservative/right-wing businesses through banks. By forcing banks to stop having businesses with conservative/right-wing businesses. The unlawful law is called “Operation Choke Point”, and Biden is reviving it after President Trump stopped this law from being implemented in 2017.

    3. @TheMedia FullOfCrap and what about donnie’s secret Chinese bank account? The Orange Racist Fascist LYIN CON Traitor paid nearly 200K in taxes to the Chinese Communist country between 2013 and 2015 YET Only paid 750 bucks to Uncle Sam in 2016 and 2017. How can that be? I thought donnie was a trustworthy businessman?? LOL

  3. Living in the UK the Equality Act is integral to broad base equality issues. How has this not a thing in a super power like the US?

    1. If you haven’t noticed our country has been disabled since President Trump took office. He did a lot of damage these last 4 years and took us several steps back. Hopefully we can catch up now. But its still pretty polarized.

  4. I don’t see where religious freedom gives permission to discriminate against the rights and freedom of others that you don’t agree with.

    1. Not sure in what context are you talking about in public or they’re place of worship? If in public no they shouldn’t but if inside they’re place of worship such as church or monastery, temple etc absolutely they should have the right to decide who is and is not allowed inside …

    2. @Mark Someone else’s “sexual beliefs” have nothing to do with you. They aren’t forcing you to believe, or engage in, their “beliefs”, nor are they trying to limit your rights because of their orientation.

    3. It’s the fact that the discrimination is part of their religious practices and they must be free to practice their religion.

    4. Let us not forgot that the Confederacy made many biblical arguments FOR slavery back in the day. You can read and interpret any religious text anyway you wish, including using it to bash and marginalize those you don’t like. History repeats itself, constantly.

  5. There is no need to do that if the law is not made to follow. How many laws have they not followed regarding black people? We will see.

  6. I get why they would introduce this bill now. Trumpism has to be squelched before it breeds anymore hate fueled violence against our fellow human being.

  7. Religious “liberty” means freedom for their own religious beliefs and discrimination for anybody else’s ideas.

  8. Why so much push for the lgbtq? De population? Control . We need to stop catering to one small group an take care of America as a whole.
