Ellen Degeneres spoke out yesterday about Mississippi’s recently passed religious freedom law, using her opening to discuss the topic. The law allows people with religious objections to deny LGBT people marriage, adoption and foster care services, fire or refuse to employ them, and decline to rent or sell them property. While Degeneres noted that she’s not a particularly political person, the religious freedom law isn’t about politics. “This is human rights,” she says.
She goes on in her very Ellen way to talk about the law but she hits the nail on the head when she says,
…that is the definition of discrimination. It is also something that the supreme court already ruled on when they made marriage a right for everyone. Everyone.
