Florida House Bill 401 (USA)

Florida House Bill 401 would allow businesses, individuals, health care facilities and providers, adoption agencies, and other institutions to discriminate based on their religious beliefs. The bill is an overreaching response to gay organizations filing discrimination complaints against bakeries and florists for refusing to participate in same-sex marriage festivities.

Doe v. Hartford Roman Catholic Diocesan Corp. (USA)

The Connecticut Supreme Court affirmed a judgment for Jacob Doe, a pseudonym, who attended a parochial elementary school in the early 1980s and suffered damages for emotional injuries resulting from sexual abuse by F, a priest employed by the Hartford Roman Catholic Diocesan Corporation. Specifically, Doe alleged that the Church, after learning that F was an alcoholic and had sexually assaulted minors in the past, negligently assigned F to serve as the director of the school. Doe further alleged that, having made this assignment, the Church negligently failed to adequately supervise F or to warn others that F might be a danger to minors.

In writing about the need to extend statutes of limitations in childhood sexual abuse civil lawsuits, the court noted that Professor Marci Hamilton observed that “[l]egislation that eliminates the civil [statute of limitations] or includes a discovery rule is supported by various studies on the long-term effects of child molestation and the likely delay in disclosure. Researchers in various studies have found-specifically in men who were sexually abused as children-that long-term adaptation will often include sexual problems, dysfunctions or compulsions, confusion and struggles over gender and sexual identity, homophobia and confusion about sexual orientation, problems with intimacy, shame, guilt and self-blame, low self-esteem, negative self-images, increased anger, and conflicts with authority figures. There is also an increased rate of substance abuse, a tendency to deny and delegitimize the traumatic experience, symptoms of [p]ost [t]raumatic [s]tress [d]isorder, and increased probability of fear and depression for all victims. Often, it is not until years after the sexual abuse that victims experience these negative outcomes. As clinician Mic Hunter has observed: ‘Some of the effects of sexual abuse do not become apparent until the victim is an adult and a major life event, such as marriage or birth of a child, takes place. Therefore, a child who seemed unharmed by childhood abuse can develop crippling symptoms years later . . . .'” (Footnotes omitted.) M. Hamilton, “The Time Has Come for a Restatement of Child Sex Abuse.” (emphasis added).

Indiana Senate Bill 101 (USA)

download

Republican Senator Dennis Kruse successfully guided legislation through the Indiana Legislature that confers on business a right to exercise “religious belief” in such a way as to not comply with laws views as “substantially burdening” the exercise of their religious beliefs. The legislation is a direct result of the insistence by GLBT Organizations that having a bakery bake a cake for a gay wedding is a constitutional right.

Oklahoma House Bill 1371 @okrepstrohm @RepEmilyVirgin (USA)

10387546_945713055441342_9124864241019296145_nState Rep. Chuck Strohm (R) introduced a bill, the Oklahoma Religious Freedom Act, to allow businesses like wedding cake bakers and photographers to deny services if it was “against the person’s religious beliefs.” State Rep. Emily Virgin (D) wants to amend the bill to require Christian businesses to post a public notice of discrimination if they intend to claim that they have a religious right to refuse service to GLBT people.

We support Virgin’s amendment.

Marjorie Silva & Azucar Bakery (USA)

Marjorie Silva

Marjorie Silva of Colorado’s Azucar Bakery is being investigated for discrimination based on religious belief after she refused to make a cake with an anti-gay message. We are not at all surprised to see this kind of action, given that gay activists have prioritized suing bakers and florists who refused to make cakes or provide flowers for same-sex couples’ marriages. We hope Silva wins, because we believe that the government should not have the power to force businesses to participate in speech that goes against their political or religious beliefs.
