Indiana Scrambles to Contain Growing Corporate, Public Outcry over Anti-LGBT “Religious Freedom” Law

http://democracynow.org – As the state of Indiana faces increasing pressure to repeal a new religious freedom law, Arkansas lawmakers have passed a similar bill that critics say could allow…

  1. There is no misunderstanding. Simply put, there are people who hate and
    fear the LGBTQ community and are using any means necessary to prevent
    members of the LGBTQ community to live their lives as best as they can and
    be treated fairly and justly in all U.S. organizations both public and
    private.

  2. Well, if a business is not allowed to decide who they will do business
    with, then the consumers should not be able to discriminate either.
    According to all these emotional nitwits, they don’t want to be free. They
    want to be forced to buy from sexists and bigots. If they would just temper
    their emotions, they would see that this is about freedom, not hate. 

  3. They should have just passed a law that says people who bake cakes for a
    living can’t get sued for saying that they can’t do it for gays. It’s
    really messed up that people are obsessed with everything and nobody is
    saying how this law protects hard working mom and pop business. It’s got
    nothing to do with hate. It’s all about freedom to not get sued by the most
    tolerant LGBT community. It makes the LGBT community look like hypocritical
    cry babies. Some people don’t agree with the LGBT lifestyle, why is that a
    problem for everyone. I don’t care what anyone does it is not something
    that keeps me awake at night. 

  4. I personally don’t care about anyone’s personal life, who they sleep with
    and what they do in their bedrooms is truly none of my effing business, but
    I believed that our government and its leaders should insure that, first
    to “uphold” all Amendments of our U.S, Constitution, including but not
    limited to ” Freedom to exercise and practice your religion, and secondly,
    to be able to have ” freedom of Choice ” which means that, anyone has the
    right to their “religious Beliefs” and if for some reason, they choose to
    refused to participate in any kind of Social or Business gatherings,
    because it’s against their religious beliefs, that no interference from
    anyone, including our government ” Can or Will forced them to do so “.

    Lastly, Our government should fully support and protect the the Business
    Owners and their Businessess from “Being burdened, in any way, shaped or
    form ” by Imposed demands ” from anyone, person or persons, business or
    businesses, religious, civil rights or government organizations, etc.” to
    forced them to ” provide considerations “such as; forcing the business
    owners to build bathrooms specially made for “LGBT Members in their place
    of business or allowing “Transgenders” to have any access to Womens
    batrooms”, this should be considered “totally Illegal ” in my opinion.

    All these Large businesses who are showing full support to LGBT’s, and
    using their money, and influenced to try and knock this Law down are
    totally undermining the
    right and will of the Christian Faith, so therefore, I decided, since these
    people don’t care about me or my religious beliefs, that from hereon
    forward, I will give my hard earned Money to people or businesses that
    cares about me and my rights.

    In my opinion, Christians should stop supporting any Business Entity that
    does not
    respect our “Freedom to Exercise our Religous Beliefs, so therefore, we
    should not
    also give them our support in return. Without our support, many of these
    businesses
    will fall like flies, in the very near distant future. Without us, they
    have no power at all,
    Well, it’s too bad, that they had forgotten the power of the people.
    Without the Consumer Public supporting their businesses, they won’t be
    around much longer.

  5. How about WE ALL TALK ABOUT the reason ‘why’ people dislike and cast out
    LGBT people…..”IT’S BECAUSE OF THEIR RELIGION, THEIR FAITH IN THEIR
    IMAGINARY SPACE GOD, FOR CHRIST’S SAKES! Ok, sorry–I’ll try and keep my
    composure here. Religion is a concept created by men a really long time
    ago so they would have ‘something’ for the ‘chaotic masses’ in the world to
    fear, and then the people would be easier to ‘be maintained’, or to be
    ‘controlled’. Skipping to present day–THIS SHIT HAS GOTTEN OUT OF HAND,
    AND REALLY NEEDS TO BE TALKED ABOUT, AND THEN THROWN OUT. Why do we need to
    base our ‘laws’ on some ‘religion?’ Here’s a scary thought: Just about
    every politician I’ve heard or heard of professes they believe in a ‘god’.
    I personally think that every adult 30 years of age or higher who ‘has
    faith and believes in a space god’ of some sort, is an idiot, and not very
    intelligent. “These are the same people who are PRETTY MUCH IN CHARGE OF
    OUR LIVES AT THIS POINT, AND MAKE ALL OF OUR LAWS. Now THAT is some scary
    shit…………………….

  6. One fact stands, Separation of Church and State. FACT. Get over it.
    Discrimination is for the weak.

  7. Please please PLEASE get a comment from Mitch Daniels on this stupidity,
    because he will back it up, and then he can kiss his run for president
    goodbye.
