What's happening here is business owners are testing the waters with this crap.
    Yes, on the exact same day, within minutes of Pence signing this into law, your gay friend walked into a clinic and was asked to leave, only because he's gay, because the clinic - obviously major homophobes - want to "test the waters". That's the biggest crock of **** I've read on here in ages.

    should the Muslim owner have to make them " a bacon cake with men kissing on it"..????.

    this is quite a question to a liberal...

    to me the answer is NO.. the Muslim owner should be free to say " Im sorry, its against my religion, there is a nice butcher down the street that Im sure will make it for you.. have a nice day"


    thats the spirit of the law..
    So, since I am a liberal, tell me what you think my position on this is.

    The state of CT has just announced it will not fund any travel to the state of Indiana while this is going down. Hysterical.

    Seattle, San Francisco, and Connecticut to Ban Government-Funded Travel to Indiana| Gay News | Towleroad
    or this one...you choose

    Dan Malloy. Malloy, a Democrat, just announced on Twitter that he plans to sign an executive order banning state travel to Indiana due to the midwestern state’s recently enacted Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
    Good thing the UConn Men's team didn't go to the tournament finals this year.

    Again, since the issue is not about understanding but about misrepresenting, let me know when you want to be honest about the issue so we can actually discuss it.

    99%... can never say 100% but I find it very unlikely even it was Richard Simmons with a "Right Said Fred world tour" t shirt on.. Drs do not allow the injured to go untreated for some political position..

    But walk in clinics mayn times are not staffed with the right person at the moment and or equipment.....I just experienced that myself.. I am not gay

    I can't believe any of those guys picked it up. I live in NH and it got about 6 seconds mention on our news channels and barely a mention in our newspapers.

    Nobody I know of cared that he used a discussion about our state bird in such a manner. It was how something proposed by kids was hijacked for political purposes - by both sides, by the way.

    Either make it a rule that he has to serve everyone, or know that the market will ferret out people who have stupid business models.
    No, the world isn't black and white and there's no reason this has to be absolutely one way or the other.
