    Here is the answer they should have been given.

    I keep saying that you can count on this subject to bring out the most hysterics and the best over the top hypotheticals imaginable. The weeping, wailing, gnashing of teeth, panic from posters would be funny if it wasn't head shakingly pathetic coming from adults. You have to read some of them to believe it.

    I remember all of the panic and hysteria the last time something happened that involved the RFRA - you may remember it. Hobby Lobby. The over the top hypotheticals in that thread almost reached the level of hysteria in here. OMG women won't be able to get birth control again! Employers will fire every female employee on the pill! Girls are going to get tossed in gulags and forced into pregnancy! Women will have to travel 600 miles to find the closest pharmacy to sell them birth control! Oh noes!

    That ruling was made in July of 2004. And here we are almost 9 months later...and the sky didn't fall. Women aren't in gulags. Employers aren't depriving their female employees of the fun of sex. And Hobby Lobby's sales are as strong as ever.

    It all makes good theater, though. And in this thread, it gives the anti-religious people an opportunity to get their hatred out in the open under the guise of actually giving a **** about this law.

    Most Catholics don't agree with many "tenets" put out by the Church. The thing is, Catholicism is so different than other Christian religions, that most Catholics still maintain more than enough of the foundational beliefs of Catholicism to consider themselves Catholic.

    Mornin TB. After reading all of this thread.....Note how those all talking that BS avoided the link with the Pro Gay Rights Attorney and Law Professor. He explained out the law quite well. Other attorneys are coming out from the left now saying the same thing. Giving consideration to those that believe in religions and or a God. That their Rights do need protection.

    As I mentioned......this was designed by the left and CNN, allow the Atheists and haters of those that believe in religions to get their roll out and be loud and vocal. (Except not in front Arab Muslims where they would start all that visible trembling.) While the Demos play games with the politics and want specific wording. All done to deflect focus from Hillary and BO who have a world of hurt coming at them from MS media Reporting.

    Now other Demos across the country are saying they wont allow State employees to travel to Indiana using state funds. Whats good about this is that those Demos can't waste money nor steal money from that little fund now. I would make note to watch those States governors and their books. Make sure those Demo governors aren't stealing that money for their own personal use.

    I was laughing at the leftists talking about Boycotting the Final Four.....these people must truly be the dumbest that the left has to offer. What did they think people were going to pass out tickets and ask them if they are gay.

    Then Apple CEO and host of some really really low information voters have spoken out. All coming out of Hollyweird and the Entertainment Industry. First someone needs to mention to them.....this isn't a movie set. 2nd don't talk unless told to talk. Just like on their movie sets and commercials.

    Actually, neither do you. Yet you do. You've decided that no religion teaches its members that being gay isn't right. You keep saying it's only people's personal views and has nothing to do with their religion.

    Just because you fell for the rhetoric doesn't mean it was right. This is part of the Great falling away.

    Great post. Liberals once loved religious freedom till they hated it.

    I'm waiting for Starbucks to announce it's closing all of its stores in Indiana. They should be able to do that this afternoon. It's so easy!

    The way this law has been twisted by the easily led who read Think Progress and believe they have any clue about the law is a sight to behold. Again, it would be funny if it wasn't so pathetic. I think everyone should get married - yes, gay people too - and I really don't care what people's preferences of a lover are, so I disagree with the religious right who think being gay is a sin. But if they believe it, that's their choice.

    The ridiculous "what ifs" that came out in this thread (and others - there's another one where someone decided that because of this law, if you're black, you won't be able to get food on your family vacation in Indiana - not kidding) are what's wrong here. Just like the stupid what ifs from the Hobby Lobby decision. The people who put these absurd things out there are getting it from Think Progress and other hard left sites. That's why hyper partisan sites are so dangerous.

    Yeah, they'll boycott the Final Four. Of course! But guess what? It will be "Um, we'll boycott it next year! Yeah!".

    State travel to Indiana. That's my favorite. I'm watching Dannel Malloy getting owned by Joe Scarborough right now. I wish Joe would ask him just how much state travel to Indiana the CT lawmakers did. Oh, he says most fraternities are based in Indiana, and they should make a statement by just getting up and moving out of Indiana. What is with these idiot leftists who have no idea what it takes to move a business to another state?

    Absolutely wrong. Christians are as welcome as anyone in the marketplace. The goal is to remove BIGOTS from the marketplace...where they do not belong. The mistake that you are making is the assumption that ALL Christians are bigots and all bigots are Christian. Neither statement is true.
