A Florida Republican has re-filed a controversial “religious freedom “bill which opponents say could be used to discriminate against the LGBT community.

State Rep. Julio Gonzalez's bill (HB 401), filed on Wednesday, seeks to amend the state's Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1998 to state that an entity owned by a religious institution is “not required to produce, create or deliver a product or service that would be contrary to [its] religious or moral convictions or policies.”

A similar bill that provided legal protections for adoption agencies created controversy during last year's legislative session. While Gonzalez's bill is more broadly written, it also specifically enumerates adoption agencies.

Nadine Smith, executive director of Equality Florida, the state's largest LGBT rights advocate, blasted the bill as “extreme” in a written statement.

“In addition to churches, it would allow individuals, for-profit businesses, health care providers, non-profit adoption agencies and others to discriminate against anyone they want, for personal reasons,” Smith said. “Not only would passing this bill tell the rest of the country that Florida is a mean-spirited, discriminatory state. It would also allow a healthcare provider to deny reproductive and contraceptive services to women; retailers to refuse service to LGBT people; a day care to refuse admittance of a child with LGBT parents, and many other outcomes we believe most people would find deeply unfair.”
