“Bathroom Bill” Is Not Hateful Bigotry

Rock star Bryan Adams just canceled a show in the United Arab Emirates, where apostasy from Islam is punishable by death. Bruce Springsteen followed suit and refused to play in Egypt, where domestic violence is not a crime. The National Basketball Association refused to play exhibition games in China. Financial giant PayPal will move its headquarters from Singapore to a country that doesn’t flog people for littering. Oh, wait—the opposite has happened." Trent Horn explains.
