"Similar to Arizona's SB 1062, the Missouri bill (SB 916) does not expressly cite sexual orientation, but could provide legal cover for individuals citing religious freedom to deny services to LGBT people.

Sen. Wayne Wallingford (R-Cape Girardeau) sponsored the legislation, which states that a governmental authority shall not substantially burden a person's free exercise of religion unless the government demonstrates that it has a compelling interest."

The leader of Missouri's top state LGBT lobbyist group has said he doesn't think it will pass, but the fact that this is even being proposed pisses me right off.

Between this and all of the transphobic bullshit on the mainpage today, I am so fucking done homophobic/transphobic assholes right now. Remedios ANGRY.
