A Bill Allowing Discrimination Against LGBTQ People Was Introduced In Idaho

Republican Legislator Lynn Luker introduced a legislation that would allow discrimination against LGBT people.

The Act gives the right to companies in Idaho to refuse to serve same-sex couples, refusal based on "sincerely held religious belief," according to LibertyVoice.

The site also reported that doctors don't have to treat homosexual patients and teachers don't have to teach gay students and neither suffer repercussions against their professional or occupational licenses, as long as the refusal was based on a religious precept. Business owners can also refuse to hire people based on sexual orientation.

Unfortunately, Idaho is not the only state to want to toughen its laws. Arizona, South Dakota and Kansas are scheduled to follow suit.
