The U.S. Supreme Court ruled Monday that existing federal law forbids job discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation, a major victory for advocates of gay rights — and a surprising one from an increasingly conservative court.

Deal with it. And stop using Jesus as an excuse to be a bigoted asshole; that shit doesn’t fly with me.
