Major companies urge Supreme Court to protect LGBTQ rights

More than 200 U.S. companies, including Amazon, Google and Bank of America, on Tuesday urged the Supreme Court to rule that federal civil rights law prohibits discrimination against LGBTQ workers. The companies filed a friend-of-the-court brief arguing that bias against LGBT people is a form of unlawful sex discrimination. The justices will hear oral arguments in October.

With "Religious Liberty" laws gaining acceptance, and the fact that they allow for legal discrimination of anyone based on ones personal beliefs. It becomes all the more important that recognized minorities like LGBTQ+ communities, religious and ethnic minorities be protected from biogotry based discrimination in the work place. Religion based discrimination is bigotry just like any other form of discrimination, it also flies in the face of the teachings of every major religion.
