Republicans Use First Amendment To Take Rights Away

Ted Cruz and Mike Lee can't wait to take rights away from LGBT people. Cenk Uygur, host of The Young Turks, breaks it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

"Earlier this month, Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and Senator Mike Lee of Utah, through his spokesperson, told Buzzfeed they plan to reintroduce an embattled bill that barely gained a House hearing in 2015. But this time around, they said, the First Amendment Defense Act (FADA) was likely to succeed due to a Republican-controlled House and the backing of President-elect Donald Trump.

FADA would prohibit the federal government from taking "discriminatory action" against any business or person that discriminates against LGBTQ people. The act distinctly aims to protect the right of all entities to refuse service to LGBTQ people based on two sets of beliefs: "(1) marriage is or should be recognized as the union of one man and one woman, or (2) sexual relations are properly reserved to such a marriage."

Ironically, the language of the bill positions the right to discriminate against one class of Americans as a "first amendment" right, and bans the government from taking any form of action to curb such discrimination—including withholding federal funds from institutions that discriminate. FADA allows individuals and businesses to sue the federal government for interfering in their right to discriminate against LGBTQ people and would mandate the Attorney General defend the businesses."

    You don’t have a right to other people’s services. Rights are things which
    people are allowed to do with their own body and property, not take from
    others. You’re a lawyer, you should know this Cenk.

      It’s the discrimination that is the problem. It’s okay to deny a service,
      but you can’t be discriminatory in who you deny services. Imagine if no one
      wanted to service white people. If there is a price for your service then
      anyone who pays that price has a right to your service.

      Amerikkka taking it back to the 1880’s with these bills. Tired of the
      federal government making them treat everyone as equals, lol.

      I think you are overestimating the size of the gay population and their
      eagerness to eat at restaurants. you’d be out of business in a month.

    You people forgot that Conservatives dont care what your rights are, if
    they dont align with their religious views then you’re wrong.

    What specific right is being taken away?

    • Posted by mark groop, at Reply

      Chukwu He’s saying that the bill will stop the government from stopping
      other people from taking away another persons rights. It’s confusing, I
      know. Just know tht it’s a BS bill.

      Chukwu It’s saying that businesses have the right to refuse servicing lgbtq
      people based on religion

    • Posted by Durodes Duvo, at Reply

      No the right of refusing service is being granted.
      Kinda like if someone doesn’t want to serve Donald Trump, they aren’t
      forced to.

      Fair treatment at the workplace. One should be hired/fired based on their
      ability to do their job not who they go home to. This is Christians being
      petty.

    Didn’t Ted Cruz’s father murder JFK? Maybe that’s why Ted became a master

      Republicans are heartless morons who love to see people suffer, their
      politics are based on fear and struggle.

    41 conservative extremists who disliked the video believe in the 2nd
    amendment, but not in the 1st amendment. Lovely hypocrisy!

    • Posted by José Guzman, at Reply

      Omar Albarghouty the first amendment would favor the business owners
      because they don’t have a legal obligation to serve ANYONE.

    Can I, as an atheist, create a business and discriminate against Christians
    on the grounds that their religion is against my lack of religion?

    lgbt owned businesses should be allowed to refuse service to christians
    then. but of course, that’s outrageous and wrong according to bible
    thumpers
