Mississippi, however, thinks it does have to discriminate. HB1523 bases its provisions on three ideas: that marriage is between a man and a woman, sex should occur only within heterosexual marriages, and "biological sex" cannot be changed. This bill goes beyond granting churches exemptions from equal rights protection for LGBT citizens. It declares that the state will not take any action against any religious organization that "establishes sex-specific standards or policies concerning employee or student dress or grooming, or concerning access to restrooms, spas, baths, showers, dressing rooms, locker rooms, or other intimate facilities or settings, based upon or in a manner consistent with a sincerely held religious belief or conviction." This statute gives an employer the right to fire a woman for wearing a pants suit, or a man for wearing an earring, if it runs against that employer's "sincerely held religious beliefs." This monstrous law then defines a religious organization as any entity, whether or not it is "affiliated with a church." In other words, any individual may, under this abortion of civil rights and justice, discriminate against anyone for any reason, as long as he justifies it as a "sincerely held religious belief."
