Walmart CEO Calls On Arkansas Gov. To Veto Anti-Gay Bill


All eyes will be on Arkansas today to see if Gov Asa Hutchinson bucks the country's largest employer, Wal-Mart, and signs the anti-gay bill passed by his state's legislature. The bill is similar to the law recently passed in Indiana.

Religious groups are among other things a statistical representation of a segment of the population. And there will be different attributes in differing percentages of that population. And as per usual the actions of the minority percentages are always the ones highlighted.

"Religion" is not the destroyer it is man.

The post would be more clear if a point was made.

No opinion on either side. But how in the world can a Indiana politician say they didn't expect this kind of reaction.

Try to go one day ... just one ... without resorting to your mindless and robotic name calling. You may surprise yourself.

I personally believe that most politicians do not or know in detail what it is they are supporting or approving. Their knowledge is purely a function of how does this legislation affect which voting block. What they know is also a function of who prepares the summary for them to have a cursory knowledge of what they are supposed to support or sign.

This is proven every single day when a politician states what he thinks the group (votes) in front of him wants to hear. Then the next day they walk back what they said or re-state what they said or the likes of Josh (the press secretary) merely goes on to say well that is not what he meant. Mean while the mission was accomplished right. They said what they wanted to say in front of the target group.

Politicians are on page two (maybe) of the list of Who Do You Trust.

Indiana Pizzeria Says It Will Deny Service to LGBT People | Mother Jones

The legislature could not stop same-sex marriage in the state of Indiana, so they tried the next best thing, stopping gay and lesbian couples from serving pizza at their wedding.

No self-respecting gay or lesbian couple would want to serve pizza at their wedding.

This puts the 2016 GOP candidates in a tough position. They all just came out in support of Gov. Mike Pence, before Pence himself back off of his position, and now will they follow Gov. Asa Hutchinson?

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson must veto this bill within five days or it becomes law without his signature.

Just out of curiosity ...

If a Christian activist walks into a gay owned/operated bakery (in any state) and request a wedding cake with the inscription "Oppose Homosexual Marriage", and the gay baker refuses to serve him ... should the gay baker be brought into court for discrimination?
