Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Is in states that have statutes that protect gay people from discrimination there is no federal law like that so this is only happening in places that have shown this particular kind of concern for gay rights that makes me hopeful that these these commissions are going to be able to come to conclusions that people can live with and then you know from the beginning i think one of the responses this case has been look they're not that many merchants were refusing to serve gay people at the market sort of take care of this there's a counter argument which is like we didn't say that in the nineteen sixties when black people were being denied service at woolworth's we did not let people use their religious beliefs as an excuse to continue that form of racism and it's important for businesses as places of public accommodation to be serving everyone different because it's i mean i think the the depth the institutional support for that kind of racism was deeper than the institutional support for not serving gay couples in particular ways the establishment of jim crow and the kind of the legal infant the deep pan dacian of it was much more profound than what exists now not to say that there aren't clearly wrongs being done to people so emily does this mean that two questions first of all so in states that don't have these civil rights protections for for gay people that means you have a right to get married because it married because that's a federal right but you don't have any right to get anyone to make you a wedding cake or anyone to do anything provide you a service for your marriage for your way so in those other states in a mississippi say yeah like you would lose this case in mississippi and there are other states i don't know if this is true of mississippi but remember the whole like religious freedom restoration act states were passing what are called mini refers these laws that showed.
