GC, I think it's clear to everyone, those laws are just another way to protect prejudice and enshrine discrimination into law. Arguments to the contrary are disingenuous. Using the language they describe, a doctor with "sincerely held" anti-muslim belief could refuse care to a muslim, a catholic nurse could refuse care to baptists, and people could just as well refuse any service - hotel, restaurant, medical, making a sandwich to interracial couples.
So what are the laws about? Republicans using jingoism and scapegoating to further us/them dichotomies and garner political gain.
SB, I've said it many times: they want the right to be bigoted, the right to discriminate, and to use their holy book as justification. This is what happens when E pluribus unum is replaced with "In God We Trust." They don't care the "pluribus;" they just care about the "unum."
