I posted this before but now this stupid law is getting more and more attention in the media.
We all know Ellen so I think it is a good idea to let her speak on what she thinks about this homofobic Mississippi law.
Ellen DeGeneres destroyed Mississippi’s homophobic religious freedom law in a new video.
‘I’m not a political person, I’m really not. But this is not politics, this is human rights,’ she said.
Mixing humor with seriousness, DeGeneres used her opening monologue, video of which was released Wednesday, to pick apart Mississippi state legislation that will not punish individuals, businesses or organizations that refuse to provide services, fire or refuse to employ LGBT people on the basis of religious belief.
‘It is the definition of discrimination…It is also something the Supreme Court ruled on when they made marriage a right for everyone. Everyone.
The Supreme Court said something that Diana Ross and The Supremes said a long time ago – “stop, in the name of love”. Now Mississippi is saying, “I don’t second that emotion”.’
‘Don’t lose hope,’ she said. “‘ was fired for being gay and I know what it feels like. I lost everything. But look at me now.
‘I think we need to remember that we are more similar than we are different, and we all want the same things – love, acceptance, kindness… and I want one of those new Teslas!’
