    Would same-sex marriages be endangered if Donald Trump or Ted Cruz wins the White House in November? Both Trump and Cruz have made their objections to Obergefell v. Hodges, the Supreme Court case that legalized same-sex marriage, abundantly clear. Both have said they’ll ignore or change the law if elected to the White House....Ben Carson has compared homosexuality to bestiality and announced that he does not consider same-sex marriage a civil right.

    Anti-LGBT Bills Are Still Flooding State Legislatures Feb 13, 2016

    “This year will be one of our most challenging yet, with anti-LGBT legislators in more than two dozen states pushing deeply harmful laws that would undermine critical protections under the guise of so-called ‘religious liberty,’” Chad Griffin, president of the Human Rights Campaign, said. “Equally troubling are disgraceful bills targeting the transgender community—from preventing trans people from using public facilities, including bathrooms, that correspond with their gender identity, to denying them the ability to make gender and name changes on crucial identification documents.”

    Last summer, the Supreme Court affirmed the rights of same-sex couples to get married in a landmark decision for gay rights. But, the LGBT community’s struggle for equality is far from over: There are about 150 bills being floated in state legislatures across the country that gay rights activists say discriminate against LGBT people. That’s a spike from 115 in 2015, in what some advocates believe is a far-right backlash to marriage equality.
