President-elect Donald Trump is no friend to atheists and non-believers. With him in office, many Republicans may try to pass the ridiculous, Draconian First Amendment Defense Act (FADA).
They want to essentially turn us into a theocracy and take rights away from people who aren’t Christians. This particular bill provides special protections for people who discriminate against people in the LGBT community. People are allowed to refuse service to anyone and claim it’s because of their religion.
Back in September, Donald Trump actually mentioned wanting to get this law passed if he got elected. He said this in a statement:
“If I am elected president and Congress passes the First Amendment Defense Act, I will sign it to protect the deeply held religious beliefs of Catholics and the beliefs of Americans of all faiths. The Little Sisters of the Poor, or any religious order for that matter, will always have their religious liberty protected on my watch and will not have to face bullying from the government because of their religious beliefs.”
