A U.S. federal judge has blocked a Mississippi law that would have allowed residents to refuse services to same-sex couples based on religious beliefs.

美国一位联邦法官叫停了密西西比州一项即将生效的法律,该法律允许该州居民以宗教信仰为由拒绝为同性伴侣提供服务。

U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves blocked the law late Thursday, just hours before it was meant to take effect Friday, saying it violates the constitution's equal protection guarantee.

美国地区法院法官里夫斯星期四晚上在距离该法律星期五生效前的几小时宣布,该法律违反了宪法平等保护的承诺,阻止了该法律的生效。

State attorneys are expected to appeal the ruling.

预计密西西比州检察官将对这一裁决提出上诉。

The controversial law, which has left the southern state subject to boycotts and criticism, would protect three beliefs: that marriage is only between a man and a women; that sex should only take place in such a marriage; and that a person's gender is determined at birth and cannot be changed.

这项法律引起巨大争议,使这个南部州受到了抵制和批评。这项法律要保护的是三种理念是:婚姻必须是在男性和女性之间,只有在这种婚姻关系下才能发生性行为,人的性别是出生时决定的,不可变更。

Local businesses also would be able to deny service to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender customers based on religious beliefs.

根据这项法律,当地店家可以宗教信仰为由,拒绝为男女同性恋,双性恋和跨性别者提供服务。

Many musicians canceled shows in recent months in Mississippi and the nearby state of North Carolina, which recently passed a bill requiring transgender people to use the bathroom corresponding to their gender at birth.

为此,不少音乐家都取消了最近几个月在密西西比州和附近的北卡罗来纳州的演出计划。北卡罗来纳州不久前刚刚通过了一项法案,要求跨性别者按出生性别使用洗手间。
