    Religious belief has never been a valid excuse for discrimination. There was nothing to "delegitimize".

    Why is being pro-homosexual a valid excuse for discrimination?

    yes, but 19 other states besides Indiana have the same law(with a few MINOR exceptions). so are you going to wet your drawers over those states and boycott them as well? you would have to for your opinion to make any sense, right?

    That's what you think. And there's a big, big difference between intelligence and Godly wisdom, the latter of which is obviously lost on the pro-gay left.

    Major exceptions.

    This has been repeated about 100 times now. No, they are not the same.

    Maybe I'm just tired of retypiing it....(besides, I figured you'd believe one of your own more than a liberal..)

    But if you're too lazy --

    Here's a starter...

    No. It is not the same. No, it does not have identical language.

    Nor is it the same as the the other RFRA in most of the other states.

    For example, in a number of the states that do have it, they have Civil Rights protections for sexual orientation and other classes. Most all of them only define "person" as a living breathing human individual.


    Indiana's law is written differently and says that a person includes "a partnership, a limited liability company, a corporation, a company, a firm, a society, a joint-stock company, an unincorporated association."


    There's the big difference. Yup. Corps are religious people too.


    In addition, the Indiana law allows people /corps to sue the state if their religious beliefs are being infringed, and the text of the law goes out its way to say their state law trumps local ordinances. There are laws in some Indiana towns and cities that do protect sexual orientation -- but poof those are overridden by the state law.

    This bill is quite a bit different than most of the other ones - that's why people are wigging about it, and also why a similar one brought before Jan freakin Brewer (!)! in AZ was vetoed.

    The major differences have been explained in THIS thread about 50 times.

    If you don't want to click on a link then just read though the thread. It's all there.
