USA #TEXAS #LGBT MARRIAGE: a note from the Texas governor instructs state employees to continue discriminating, because SCOTUS? Pffft: that don' mean sheeit. It's all about cis privilege: people do NOT understand how deeply freaky life would be for them if EVERY "sincerely held religious belief" had to be honoured. They mean the common values held by "Conservative, Political-Evangelical Blond-Haired-Blue-Eyed-Jesus Christianity". Even the *regular* "sincerely held religious beliefs" have had their moments (in not-100-years-ago news: segregation, old white guy in Missouri groping a black waitress, bi-racial marriages criminalised/denied). Who gets to decide what is a "sincerely held religious belief" and what is a crackpot idea that should never be voiced or respected? Because you KNOW it'll be a bunch of rich white guys going, "oh, no, you misunderstood: it's OUR 'sincerely held religious beliefs' that are being threatened, yours don't count."
