The newly passed North Carolina Transgender law is forcing Steph Curry to share his thoughts on the impact to his home state.  The law instructs people to use bathrooms and locker rooms that are assigned to their gender at birth, and this has caused the NBA to look at the possibility of taking the 2017 All Star game away from Charlotte.

As a Christian, this puts Steph Curry in the spotlight, as questions about his stance will be asked more frequently. Curry elaborated a bit more with the response he gave to Mercury News:

“I knew I would be asked about my views on the situation in North Carolina and potential ramifications on next year’s All-Star Game in Charlotte, which I hope can be resolved. While I don’t know enough about the North Carolina law to comment more fully, no one should be discriminated against.”

“My faith and beliefs have always been the bedrock of my life,” he continued. “As a Christian, I am taught that we are all equal in the eyes of God. So I treat everyone the way I want to be treated — fairly, justly and equally. I hope that is how we all treat each other.”

This is basically a no-win situation for Curry, but the key point here is that he believes no one should be discriminated against. This response will satisfy some for now, but expect more scrutiny especially if the Warriors make the NBA Finals.
