NewsBusters Can't Stop Portraying Discrimination Against Gays As 'Religious Liberty'
Topic: NewsBusters

Ken Shepherd grumbles in a March 21 NewsBusters post:

MSNBC is at it yet again, slandering conservatives wishing to protect the religious liberties of business owners as "anti-gay" bigots.

The latest example comes with the headline for Adam Serwer's March 21 story, "Georgia Republicans tack anti-gay amendments onto unrelated bills." 

As we've pointed out when Shepherd and his Media Research Center buddies have previously advanced this idea, there's a good reason such "religious liberty" bills are seen -- and accurately portrayed -- as anti-gay: The impetus for introducing them was to keep business owners from being forced to do anything that could possibly be considered support for gay marriage, like baking a cake or taking photos, allowing to skirt federal public-accomodation mandates.

Shepherd has previously framed the anti-gay discrimination that such laws would make possible as a "free-market remedy."
