<p>In a slanted hit piece against religious freedom laws for <em>CBS Sunday Morning</em>, correspondent Mark Strassmann proclaimed: <strong>&ldquo;North Carolina&#39;s public bathrooms are the new frontier in American civil rights law....Just since the beginning of this year, lawmakers in 34 states have proposed so-called &lsquo;bathroom&rsquo; bills and &lsquo;religious freedom&rsquo; laws that, critics say, target gay, lesbian and transgender people.&rdquo;</strong></p>

<p>The reporter argued that the source of such supposed discrimination was signed into law decades earlier: &ldquo;These state actions descend from a little-known bipartisan bill signed into law by President Clinton back in 1993....The Religious Freedom Restoration Act, or RFRA, prohibited the government from unduly interfering in the way Americans express religious beliefs.&rdquo;</p>
