Voting Has Ended
In the past 100 years there have been many laws passed at the federal, state, and local level banning discrimination based on race, age, sex, and orientation. While many of these laws are still in place today, there was a landmark Supreme Court case in 2000 that pointed to the first amendment. Boy Scouts of America v. Dale stated that under the first amendment, the Boy Scouts of America had the right to bar homosexuals as troop leaders. Another Supreme Court case, Phillips v. Martin Marietta Corp. ruled that businesses could not discriminate against women based on whether they had preschool aged children. With conflicting Supreme Court decisions, where do you stand? Are anti-discrimination laws constitutional?
