Day 34 01 Year, Trumpland: Human Rights

Gay rights and trangender rights are human rights. The reason federal courts must protect human rights is that the majority will never protect the minority. Indeed, the majority, especially the Christian right majority, will make human rights illegal.

Case in point. In 1997 Indiana lawmakers revisited this issue by:
Revamping a law that makes furnishing false information on a marriage license a class D felony. Beginning July 1, 2014, a same-sex couple applying for a marriage license in the state of Indiana will be guilty of a Level 6 felony, punishable by 18 months in prison and a $10,000 fine. The new law also makes it a Class B Misdemeanor for a clergyman, judge, mayor, city clerk or town clerk-treasurer to perform a same-sex marriage, punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1,000. Any clerk who issues a license to a same-sex couple would also be guilty of a Class B Misdemeanor.
Of course it was struck down, but want to know how people like me will loose their marriage?
