27. We have people even on this board spreading LIES like Illinois has the same provisions

 

BULLSHIT, troll-ass liars!

Illinois has TWO provisions,

RELEVANT PROVISION 1: You cannot discriminate against a wide variety of classes of person, in business or for accommodations, etc. Among those classes are LGBT persons. The state has a compelling interest in prohibiting such discrimination.

RELEVANT PROVISION 2: For any matter where the state DOES NOT have or CANNOT show a compelling interest, the state cannot require you to act against your religious beliefs.

The two provisions work together, the first limiting the second, and the second covering any ground not covered by the first. Here's the thing: INDIANA ONLY HAS THE SECOND (some of but not all of the other states, too).

What Mike Pence is going to push the legislature for is RELEVANT PROVISION 1, which Indiana currently DOES NOT HAVE. That's why people who tell you that there are 20 states with the same law as Indiana are either liars or ignorant shitheads. The boycott pressure is calling on Indiana to pass RELEVANT PROVISION 1 so that RELEVANT PROVISION 2 becomes the toothless piece of shit that it should be.

Fucking BOYCOTT them mercilessly until they, um. CLARIFY.
