Every since North Carolina decided that the only way to legalize discrimination is to hide it under religious text, the state has be in the news for months now. Businesses are treating to cancel their involvement with the state, the Playoffs are petitioning to move to Atlanta and now they may be defunded by the government.
I think it is hypercritical to be a Christian and hate people at the same time. Love thy neighbor but not if they are apart of the LGBT community. I think I missed that part of the Bible.

If that is the case then there should be a problem with family bathrooms along time ago. Those bathrooms have been around for years.
Many companies are planning to relocate events outside of that state, movies are refusing to produce there, and even some companies are refusing to pay for employees to go to conventions that are held in the state.
