The New American: “When a white policeman shot a black man in Ferguson, Missouri, last summer, it should have been a page two story in the local papers, and then forgotten. But the media saw their chance to promote their agenda, and Ferguson became front page news for months on end.
Indiana’s religious freedom bill, signed into law by Governor Mike Pence on Thursday, has unleashed a similar outpouring of angst by people who should know better: Hillary Clinton, grade B movie stars Ashton Kutcher and Miley Cyrus, CNN, and the New York Times. The word is out: Indiana now has legalized discrimination against gays and lesbians!
In reality the law adopts the same approach to the exercise of religious freedom under the First Amendment and government interest as the bill that Hillary’s husband signed into law back in 1993.”
Opinion: Where was the outrage from the left when in October 2014 an openly gay Houston mayor demanded Christian pastors turn over sermons dealing with homosexuality or gender identity? Annise Parker, the city’s first openly lesbian mayor, said those ministers who fail to comply could be held in contempt of court.
Funny, I don’t remember Hillary or Ashton or Miley saying a word about discrimination back then.
The sad fact is that dishonest politicians like dear Hillary prey on the uninformed. The bill is almost word for word the same as her husband signed in 1993: “Government may substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion only if it demonstrates that application of the burden to the person is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest; and is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.”
Here is Indiana’s language “A governmental entity may substantially burden a person’s exercise of religion only if the governmental entity demonstrates that application of the burden to the person: (1) is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest; and (2) is the least restrictive means of furthering that compelling governmental interest.”
Religious freedom under attack.
