How Mike Pence's surrender will affect people of conscience in Indiana



Can you imagine if a state legislature voted on a bill today which declared "The legislature shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof". They would call it bigoted, anti-homosexual rights bill that would prevent the government from passing laws to protect "discrimination" against gays, bisexuals, and transsexuals. (How do you discriminate against a bisexual--how do you even know if a person is bisexual? And exactly when being bisexual or being a man demanding to be accepted as a woman become a civil rights issue?)

As some of you know, the language I quoted above is the exact language of the First Amendment of the Bill of Rights in our United States Constitution. Can you see how far we have come from constitutionality and the rule of law?

With the amendment of Indiana's Religious Freedom Act, Mike Pence and the Republican state legislature have made the act virtually meaningless. Despite what Pence says, it seems clear the original intent of the bill was to offer a defense to businesses and organizations which didn't want to get involved in gay marriages. But now, having amended the law to say that it can't be used as a defence against refusing to participate in LGBT events, the law in essence has become meaningless.

Furthermore

The amendment offers some protection against discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity, the first time an Indiana law has addressed the issue

What does Mike Pence's 180 degree turnaround mean for people of conscience in Indiana? Bakers, photographers, wedding planners and others may be sued if they don't participate in gay weddings, even if they have sincere religious objections to it.

This country was founded on religious liberty. No one was trying to stop people from being gay, or having gay relationships, no matter how unhealthy those relationships are. When federal judges illegally imposed gay marriage on us, no one tried to stop gays from getting married. But that's not enough. The radical gay movement will not be satisified until every heterosexual approves and participates. This isn't about sexual freedom. This is about tyranny against the free exercise of religion.

What's more, the new, amended law doesn't just apply to homosexuals, but to those with "gender identity" issues as well. If a company refuses to hire a bearded man in a dress as a waitress, they can be sued. If a sleep away camp doesn't hire a guy with very hairy legs in a skirt as a camp counselor, it can be sued. And what if two men dressed as women came to an orphanage and wanted to adopt a child? If they were turned away, the orphanage could be sued.

This is what the people of Indiana will have to endure because supposedly "conservative" Republicans like Mike Pence have melted like butter. Democrats take the radical and declare it mainstream, and Republicans are too busy sewing white flags to object. Here's a tweet from Mike Pence:

Now that this is behind us, let’s move fwd together w/a renewed commitment to civility & respect that make IN great

Pence's attitude seems to be: whatever we did, it's done, so let's talk about something else!

By the way, I scanned the news and the only candidate I see speaking out today about this is

Mike Pence wimps out on Religious Freedom Act


Mike Pence was on This Week With George Stephanopoulos. Stephanopoulos, with a dreamy smile which made him look like he still high on antipsychotic drugs, repeatedly asked Pence if the recently passed Religious Freedom Act would enable a baker or a florist to refuse to participate in a gay wedding, and Pence refused to answer, simply repeating, over and over, that the act promoted religious freedom, and that President Obama had once supported a similar law, without describing what the law does. His dry, abstract, and very evasive answers to a simple question were very unflattering both to him and the conservative movement. It looked as if Pence were afraid of defending the very law he had signed.
