The state of Mississippi enacted a law permitting refusal of service to LGBT people if to serve them offends a “sincerely held religious belief” or “moral conviction.”

But hold on here.

Are there actual religions that hold to such beliefs? (“And the Lord sayeth, ‘No one shall retail any item to a gay person.'”) Are there preachers who condemn such a thing? (“Perdition and hellfire await any baker who sells a cake with a 3-inch plastic statuette of a gay couple on top.”)

I didn’t think so.
