Religious Freedom Law
 
Pence defends religious freedom law: 'Absolutely not' a mistake | MSNBC



Indiana's Governor Mike Pence repeatedly dodged questions about whether his recently signed Religious Freedom Law would discriminate against gays and lesbians on ABC's This Week with George Stephanopolus. He was asked several times a yes or no question, and each time wiggled out of answering by giving the history of the law or other total BS.

Pence was forced to try to defend this abhorrent law after many businesses, corporations, sports teams and other states decried the law as being discriminatory; including the NCAA, the NBA, the NFL, Apple, Angie's List, the Chamber of Commerce, and many others.

The new law is projected to cost Indiana tens of millions of dollars as corporations, large and small, are threatening to pull out of the state, canceling conventions, and not doing business there.

This law allows anyone, based on their religious beliefs, to refuse service to anyone. Even former Gov Jan Brewer, R-AZ, had the good sense to veto a similar bill a few years ago or risk losing the super bowl. And now Arkansas is poised to pass a similar bill (not that AR will ever host the super bowl).

The best way to fight these discriminatory practices are what's being done now...hit them in the pocketbook.

Laws like that are one step closer to Sharia Law in this country that used to believe in religious freedom. Very sad and antiquated. Too many law makers are choosing to put their oun personal beliefs above that of their constituents.

I did read that very carfully thank you. It's showing favortism to a religious belief at the expence of other Americans. Try to remember, this is America, with a constitution that gave ALL Americans religious freedom, not just christion beliefs. :wave:

'Shameless': Indiana Gov. Defends Controversial Religious Freedom Law - NBC News


Governor Mike Pence said he would not add sexual orientation to a protected class in state civil rights cases, making very clear which group of people this law is discriminating against.

Guest 03-29-2015 01:59 PM

Thank You Governor Pence
 
I want to thank Governor Pence for his political courage. Clearly this law is a rebuke to Obama's attempts to over reach to try and prevent people's rights to their religious practices. All religions are equally protected and recognized

Religions except of Muslims embraced gay people but do not embrace their acts and rightly so

The gay community levels these specious claims of discrimination because they believe a secular country is more conducive to their way of life and hence will do anything to remove religion from the equation.

Opponents criticize that Pence signing of this law was out of the public's view but it was not.

However Obamacare was passed without one Republican vote and no one even reading what was in it. he has conducted his fiats in secret including Berdahls release and the Iran nuclear deal .

Rule of Law will prevail and opponents need to stop their promulgating misinformation.


Personal Best Regards:

Conservatives Admit The Truth On Indiana 'Religious Liberty' Bill | ThinkProgress


Indiana legislators openly admit that this bill was designed to discriminate against the LGBT community. They say 'you may be able to marry in IN, but we will make sure you are discriminated against'.

It will be a big price to pay to lose the NCAA and others just so some Christian woman doesn't have to bake a wedding cake for two men.

Other states, including Michigan, decided these laws were just too risky, but not Indiana. Don't come around moaning and groaning when you lose millions of dollars in lost revenue.

I read the article that you posted (also noticed the questionable source) - what you state above is bs. I do not see that anywhere in the article and you even go so far as to put it in quotes! Just goes to show how far some people will go to twist the facts.

What religion is for this to be legal?
 
Muslim and Christians are on the same page when it comes to this.

And you would be incorrect.

Here is the exact quote from the article - "But now lawmakers want to make sure that even if same-sex couples can marry, they can still be discriminated against." - last sentence in the next to last paragraph.

Thank you - you just verified my point!

I find it interesting that we have commenters podting here saying how bad Indiana is for passing this law while residing in a State the has the EXACT same law! Where is the protest in Florida? There is a federal law that is the same. Where is the protest? If people read the and understand they would understand the law does not give the right to discriminate. It protects individual and business from being forced by the government to violaye their religious beliefs. Anyone remember the Hobby Lobby case? Stop believing what is being spoon fed to you by the liberal media and there would not be this protest.
