I would add that in reading numerous articles on this subject, noted democrats continue to dance around this issue and similar when forced to look at similar legislation that they have pinned their name to . . . gotta play both sides of the fence if you want to keep getting elected.

Oh and edn, I focused on you simply because of your absurd but usual method of immediately codifying anyone who disagrees with you as being at the farthest fringes of the worst of the worst.

This really isn't that hard edn, but you're so far off the deep end, you can't help yourself.  Sad
LoL at the deflection of bringing in the Dems.  You have no answers so you're hiding.

see this is why you are the worst.  you are destroying a thread because you know you're on the wrong side.  I mean at least KSUW and Reno have the balls to put their bigotry out there.  You deflect when you bring me up with Obama and the rest of the dems.  It a joke of a tactic and very transparent.  Do you want to get to the issue at hand, your support of anti-gay legislation, or deflect some more?  I mean once we hash out why you hate gblt rights, maybe we can move onto why we have such shitty leaders.

Tough to say how much you want the gov involved and I agree that the market should generally work these things out.  Maybe just a law to have the business owner put a sticker on the front door saying who the discriminate against so that way, those people can easily avoid the establishment.

Generally bigots like to do it pretty low key, at least where their livelihood is concerned

Seems to me all this law does is keep the business from being sued for refusing service based on their religion. The market will still work this out.

When has the market worked out discrimination against a small minority group?

Would you purchase from a business that discriminates against gays? I wouldn't.

It also opens up business opportunities for non-bigots.

I'm not sure if this religous freedom law was even necessary in Indiana. People need to calm down on both sides of the issue and learn to live and let live.

This makes sense to me.

Even a half breed hillbilly like me realizes that a business has to sell goods and services to all legitimate consumers at the same price.  This is where it should end as what the state can force me to do.  For example if I want to put up posters all over my store saying homosexuality and abortion is wrong, some butthole weasel progressive legislator squirrel should not be allowed to pass a law forcing me to take down the poster.  If I don't want to pay for insurance coverage that pays for abortion I should not have to do it.  On a side note, a minister has to be licensed by the state to sign a marriage certificate; the state dould easily say you have to marry gays if you want a license.  In Canada, a minister cannot say bad things about gays for fear of being prosecuted as a hate crime.  The state could pass a law to revoke a church's tax free status if they shun gays or atheists.

I bet you would and wouldn't even know it unless you were researching everywhere you shop for anything.

The "market" may force Indiana to change their stupid law before businesses are really able to stick it to the gays. The state looks like it's run by a bunch of clowns.

Quite frankly, it's refreshing to know Kansas isn't in the spotlight for this type of idiocy this time.

Aren't there like 30 states that have a similar law regarding religious freedoms? It's basically a first amendment law.

that is a fantastic piece, great work explaining the horrific entrenchment of private businesses having 1st amendment rights.
