Blog 8]

The article titled Texas Consider Amendments to its Religious Freedom Law talks about the Texas lawmakers and business leaders objecting the Religious Freedom Restoration Acts. Their reasoning was that the bill will hurt not just the economy but also the LGBT community itself.

The reason why this article is an example of religious diversity is the fact that the campaign name itself is misleading. The bill is being called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act which makes it seem like the bill will help keep practicing religious employees keep their jobs.  But in reality the bill is just a way for businesses to fire members of the LGBT community without it being considering a sex or  gender thing. Many religions ay disagree with certain lifestyles but not to the point where they will hate openly against them; this hatred comes from the people who follow those religions. Freedom of Religion is not Freedom to Discriminate.
