    I’m amazed the the majority of those opposed to the “bigotry” have not actually read the law. Read the !@#@!# law.

      Many of us did read it. The bathroom issue is the headline, it’s not the real issues. Besides, the anti-LGBT language: the law limits how people pursue claims of discrimination because of race, religion, color, national origin, biological sex or handicap in state courts.

    Richard, I’m guessing there’s no arguing with you, but it didn’t take me long at all to find some bigotry:

    Single-Sex Multiple Occupancy Bathroom and Changing Facilities. – Local boards of
    12 education shall require every multiple occupancy bathroom or changing facility that is designated
    13 for student use to be designated for and used only by students based on their biological sex.

      Yes, Richard, forcing people who are transgendered to use the restroom of their biological gender at birth is bigotry in 2016.

      I avoid the word “bigotry” for just this reason – discussion devolves into the meaning of the word “bigotry.”

      I say it’s unfair, mean-spirit and a response to threats that are entirely silly and imaginary.

    Richard – section 2 prohibits any city or town in NC from enacting laws preventing discrimination against the LGBT community. I do believe that’s bigotry!

      Not to mention a continuation of the legislature’s ongoing power-grab from local (generally urban and progressive ) governments. They fight Washington meddling in state affairs (eg, rejecting the Affordable Care Act),, but believe they have every right to steal our ability to self-govern.

      And they gerrymander the voting districts to keep themselves in power (which, full disclosure, the democrats also did when they held the legislature), and pass voter ID laws to make it more difficult for people to vote.

    Richard – Section 3 allows people to discriminate against transgendered people. More bigotry. I’m reading the bill, and noticing a clear trend.

    Richard – I read the entire thing. It’s full of bigotry and unwarranted fear. Nice try.

      Which is why they had to call a special session and pass it within hours of introduction, with virtually no discussion. This was railroaded through my state and it’s killing our economy and what little positive reputation we had. Not to mention discriminatory and wrong.
