Last month, the Supreme Court ruled that private businesses can discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation. This is a major step back for LGBTQ+ equality in America, and it’s shameful that so many on the right, including Senator Josh Hawley, are celebrating this dangerous decision.
In fact, Hawley isn’t just celebrating the fact that this gives people the right to discriminate against LGBTQ+ Americans, he is celebrating the fact that his wife was involved in the litigation of the case.
And did you hear? The entire basis of the case was made up! A web designer claimed that a man asked her to create a website for his same-sex wedding, except the man in question is straight and has been married to his wife for 10 years. It was all a lie!
Here’s what we know: the facts of this case that gives private businesses the right to discriminate against LGBTQ+ Americans were made up, and Josh Hawley and his family are right at the center of the lies.
