Louisiana, USA: GOP Rep Wants to Legalize Employment Discrimination Against Gays

Written by scott on April 16th, 2013

Louisiana Representative Ala SeabaughAs the rest of the country moves toward inclusion for the LGBT community, Louisiana is moving backwards. Joe.My.God reports:

Two weeks ago Louisiana GOP state Rep. Alan Seabaugh filed a bill that would effectively ban employment discrimination lawsuits filed on the basis of sexual orientation. Equality Louisiana writes on their website: HB 402 by Rep. Alan Seabaugh (R-Shreveport) would require that any employment discrimination lawsuits filed for reasons other than a very short list of protected categories be automatically dismissed and considered “frivolous.”

Not surprisingly, Louisiana is dead-last in support for marriage equality, at just 31%. In DC, it’s twice that.

    The southern states all seem to think that they are not part of the U.S. Maybe we need to cut them off from any federal funding since they spend much of their money spreading hate and bigotry.
