Alliance Defending Freedom Legal Counsel Matt Sharp was a guest on NPR’s Morning Edition this week to discuss the recent religious freedom laws passed in North Carolina and Mississippi. When asked if the law in Mississippi could be characterized as a way for people, individuals, and business owners “who do not support LGBT people” to deny serving them, Matt clarified what the law allows and does not allow:
"This [law] is a targeted response to make sure these vulnerable religious minorities, and those who hold a traditional view of marriage, are not compelled by the government to do something that would violate their beliefs. This in no way is meant to allow the LGBT community to be denied goods and services.”
