Oklahoma parents worry Supreme Court ruling could derail their family
For many Oklahoma parents, the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling on religious freedom is a cause for concern. The court’s decision in Masterpiece Cakeshop v. Colorado Civil Rights Commission means that businesses can now refuse to serve customers if they have a religious objection to doing so.
This could have a major impact on families in Oklahoma, where many businesses are already refusing to serve same-sex couples. And it’s not just businesses; some public schools in the state have also refused to allow same-sex couples to attend school functions or participate in school activities.
The Supreme Court’s ruling could make it even harder for same-sex couples to find businesses and schools that will accept them. It could also lead to more discrimination against LGBT people in general.
Oklahoma parents who are concerned about the impact of the ruling on their families are already taking action. Some are contacting businesses and schools to make sure they are still welcome, and others are looking for new businesses and schools that are more inclusive.
No matter what the Supreme Court’s ruling means for their families, Oklahoma parents are determined to make sure their children are treated fairly and with respect.
