Will their "religious freedom" mean freedom to discriminate against LGBT people?

Today’s Supreme Court ruling in the Hobby Lobby case has some activists worried that if companies can opt out of birth control coverage for religious reasons, they might try to opt out of anything that benefits their LGBT employees. Some legal experts are saying that’s unlikely, but at least a couple of right-wing leaders have declared they’d like to see it happen.

Hateful tweets in this vein came today from political commentator Matt Barber and Americans for Truth About Homosexuality president Peter LaBarbera, first posted by Right Wing Watch. Take a look below.


#HobbyLobby may help protect businesses from those pushing counter-biblical #LGBT lifestyle & anti-Christian agenda http://t.co/Lgg2zrcmFB

#HobbyLobby bodes fairly well for freedom of association in context of #lgbt immorality & religious freedom http://t.co/cfDPgzmYl9 #tcot #p2

LGBT Left has been winning in the courts, but now we have hope that SCOTUS will honor small biz conscience exemptions on homosexuality #tcot
