<p>Chris Cuomo again acted like a LGBT activist on the 29 June 2015 edition of CNN's <i>New Day</i>, as he interviewed Peter Sprigg from the socially conservative Family Research Council. Cuomo raised the specter of Jim Crow when he claimed that a proposed First Amendment Defense Act in Congress "does smack familiar to what happened in the wake of the miscegenation laws and the civil rights laws, where ...some cited the Bible; some stated religion – and said, it's against my beliefs. I shouldn't have to participate."</p>
<p>The anchor used some of the social left's other talking points on LGBT issues – that conservatives were trying to "project your religious beliefs onto the behavior of others. We know that we can't do that in a pluralistic society. This just seems like a little bit sour grapes, and a little bit of trying to defy...the supreme law of the land." He also asserted that religious insitutions worried about their tax-exempt status in the wake of the Supreme Court's Friday decision on same-sex "marriage" was, "as some would access...a scare tactic."</p>
