Is this what Jesus would want?  Mississippi and North Carolina both passed sweeping anti-LGBT laws, making it easier to discriminate against gender and sexual minorities.  Here’s what Jesse Ventura has to say on the matter.

These are bills that bring religion into government.  Religion and government are and should be separate.  Therefore, these bills shouldn’t even be brought forward.

If these private sector religious institutions don’t bide by the law, then that’s their problem.  But the law is the law.  The law of the land is there for all of us in order to live and survive in a civilized society.  Believers have to abide by these laws as well, whether their religion tells them they do or don’t.

There’s no facts to religion.  There’s no scientific evidence.  One thing that I’ve learned is that I don’t have to prove that there is no God, because no one has proved that there IS one.  There’s no proof that can be rendered that there is a God.

Religion is merely a belief.  The law supersedes belief.In this country, it always has, and it always will.

In other words, there will be no discrimination regardless of what your religion teaches you.  If your religion teaches you to discriminate, that’s too bad.In our country, we don’t discriminate. You’ll have to expatriate to a country that allows you to do that.Fair enough?

In our country, we should not and will not discriminate.  We should not accommodate people’s religious beliefs when they impede upon others.  You can practice these beliefs on your own as much as you want, but don’t enforce them on your neighbor.  Otherwise, you’re out of line.
