My response: CANCELLATION.

35. Don't be silly, of course you can't.

This law is only for those of Kristian faith to be able to discriminate. It don't apply to nobody else.

*not that I think the disclaimer is needed here, but this is sarcasm*

5. I would love to ask Pence one simple question?

But since I am not rich, and not likely to contribute to him when he runs for President, it is not likely he would see me. But if I could ask, I would say:

Governor, can you, or any legislator who voted for this law, cite any specific situation where someone would have a religious reason to not serve someone that is so compelling that the State of Indiana felt a law had to be passed to deal with it?

As a follow up Governor, what specific problem does this law address?

7. I'd love for him to give ONE real-world example of how this law helps people

express their religious freedom.

What can they do NOW that they couldn't do before due to the passage of this law.

In effect, what has this law allowed to happen now in the name of "religious freedom" that wasn't allowed before.

11. A problem with this law is that it will permit the discrimination for any reason.

 

If you can point at a person and decide they are gay and refuse service, then you could point at anyone you did't like, maybe Jews, Muslims, over weight people, red heads, and declare they are gay and justify discrimination.

16. No because religion is a protected class

The only group not protected both by the state and federal government is LGBT.

20. So if a Muslim came in to a store they could be refused service if the owner

 

"thought" they were gay. He just might think that all Muslims are gay. The law allows the owner to pick and choose who he thinks is gay and therefore refuse service. Who is going to confront him/her? "Sorry, I thought you looked gay."

22. and declare they are gay

 

Well, they'll just have to prove they are hetero. Maybe by having coitus in the parking lot.

But then..... how do religious people know that the guy with the wife and 3 kids doesn't have a boy toy on the side? Or that he didn't have a "youthful indiscretion" with his football coach or something.

Ooooh yeah.... that never happens....

36. The boy toy on the side is fine by these idiots.

They are fine with gays being relegated to cruising parks, or married men having a little on the side, or priests molesting children.. it's all good as long as it's kept in the Shadows.

What they can't stand is when gay couples actually want to dedicate their life to each other, build a family together, and build a home together... That does too much to destroy their preconceived notions and stereotypes of what gay is. The entire notion that GLBT's actually have the capability to fit into their weird notion of what "normal" is... that's what's unacceptable.

12. The legislature is already claiming the law needs to be "clarified."

I guess laws are like computer games: instead of having it right on release, it needs to be patched even before it comes out.

It's not like you didn't have plenty of time to work on it, fools.

17. Why do the Republican Governors insist that they pass a radical, discrimination "religious freedom"

bill? Why do they actually need one? Is it nothing other than to discriminate against a minority? And none of the Governors can give a honest answer for the reason they signed the bill. It just another one of the hundreds of suppression bills the Republican governors have passed, Why don't all the Democratic governors have this bill if it is so important for religious freedom. I thought our Constitution protected religious freedom. All the churches and conservatives act like they are real free. Some even murder when it comes to abortions. Christians killing innocent because of there strong abortion dislikes. Trying to force their religious rights on to the nation.
Are we not free to decide if we want to join the killer Christians?

18. In Arizona, one of the radical conservatives and most of the senate/house is made up of them,

tried passing a law making going to church each Sunday mandatory. The radical female conservative did this during a hearing about making guns more open. The NRA and radicals in AZ wants everyone to open carry guns anywhere they want. They have passed bill overriding communities/city laws about guns.

don't think they are discriminating cause they think it is Christian to feel like this. And they call Obama a Nazi?
