Despite the deliberate misinformation being spread by Leftist activists and their friends in the media, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, or RFRA, is not a complicated law. It is not difficult to understand. It is not a blanket license to discriminate.

If what you claim is true, why couldn't Mike Pence affirm this last Sunday to George Stephanopoulos?

A simple, "No, this law doesn't allow discrimination" would have convinced me. His inability to answer the question tells me something else.

Shrug....and yet we already have folks refusing to serve gays as a result of the law.

Given that so far thats the only thing we have seen...what EXACTLY was the nondiscriminatory purpose of the law?

As a result?
refusing service?

Memories is the only place I can think of and what they said was they have no issue serving pizza to gay people, but they would not cater a hypothetical wedding.

HYPOTHETICAL... meaning no actual person was refused ANYTHING

No one's guns have been taken away, but the moment someone mentions regulation, gun nuts go crazy. Different rights. Same reaction.

Discrimination in context is a loaded word since the rights of different people are sometimes set against one another and accommodations must be made for each party.

RFRA simply proves a framework by which the rights of all can be protected.

Of course we are dealing with people who invent make believe rights from thin air while pretending the Constitution doesn`t exist.

When one of the guys behind the law says that it will allow businesses to refuse service to gay couples, then I kind of take him at his word.

Quote:
Here are just three examples where SB 101 will help:

Christian bakers, florists and photographers should not be punished for refusing to participate in a homosexual marriage!
Advance America Blog Archive VICTORY AT THE STATE HOUSE!

Here is what he said about the changes to the law.
Quote:
Among the things that will happen, Christian bakers, florists and photographers would now be forced by the government to participate in a homosexual wedding or else they would be punished by the government! That’s not right!
Advance America Blog Archive Legislature About To Destroy Religious Freedom Protection in Indiana!

For a law not about discrimination, it seems that one of the people that pushed for it thought it was about discrimination against gays and wedding services.

no its a very different deal. the constitution states very clearly that the right to bear arms "shall not be infringed" when talk of laws starts up there is a natural and practical and very American reaction to this notion.


what we are talking about here is yet another constitutional right, that to practice ones faith.... now in the last couple of years some other folks have decided that there is this other right. the right to get pizza at a wedding for a couple of guys.... last time I read the constitution (I admit its been more than 3 weeks) THIS right is not enumerated...


so no. its not "different rights same reaction"
