It has been said that if you repeat a lie enough times, it becomes the truth. So it is with the false narrative that our Constitution cannot provide civil liberties and equal protection for members of the LGBT community while it simultaneously respects individual religious beliefs and practices.

Despite being in a nation that sprouted from seeds of personal liberty, freedom and individual rights, the politically manufactured controversy that pits religion against equal rights has come before the United States Supreme Court repeatedly over the past four decades. During that time, the LGBT community has achieved significant and life-changing successes in multiple cases and were finally able to cast aside the fallacious judicial theory that the moral views of some should be permitted to segregate and do harm to others.
