"I believe that man will not merely endure: he will prevail. He is immortal, not because he alone among creatures has an inexhaustible voice, but because he has a soul, a spirit capable of compassion and sacrifice and endurance." William Faulkner
Having exposed their lies and red herring, you eagerly quote the self-interested opinions (delusions) of either the spineless, ignorant, or dishonest corporate based donors to Republicans. Not only is it irrelevant to my claim, it seems that you are projecting.
Contrary to your (likely) image of conservatives, and unlike liberals, we are not awed by figures of social authority. We are not impressed with the left's adoration of "might makes right" or "we won" as the basis of a political philosophy. And we are not surprised at the cynical left's excoriation of corporations as "not people" and "greedy businesses that only care about profits at any cost" AND THEN their deftness in cynically trotting out these figures of hate - as if these same corporations were NOW comrades of disinterested altruism on behalf of the oppressed!
You have confirmed what conservatives already knew: big business does not give a hoot about religious liberty, and is always willing to sell the rope that will be used by the mob to hang them with.
Now do you have a real argument against the points I made, or is this it?

I think that Tammy Bruce has a number of pertinent points here.
‘'Gay'-rights advocates back Indiana law - 'Despite all the rhetoric, it's about religious freedom'In contrast, talk-radio host Tammy Bruce said Wednesday in a tweet: “As a gay woman, I’m appalled by GOP inability to defend religious freedom & disgusted by how liberal gays have turned into common bullies.”
On her radio show Wednesday, she commented on the report of the Indiana pizza shop owners.
“The left is trying to burn down businesses that do not comply,” Bruce told her radio listeners.
She pointed out that the businesses owned by religious believers that have been targeted in lawsuits have not turned away gays, “they’re just not going to cater or facilitate weddings.”
Bruce juxtaposed the outcry by the homosexual rights activists opposing the Indiana law with their virtual silence about atrocities against homosexuals in the Middle East.
“If you’re worried about whether someone is going to bake you a cake, because everything’s got to be about you, than you are about child weddings with terrorists, the flogging of rape victims and the murder of gays by the state, you’ve got your priorities a little screwed up,” she told her listeners.
Chastising the media, she wrote in a tweet: “Pizza shop that won’t cater a gay wedding is bigger news than Iranian official restating their intent to wipe Israel off the map. Got it.”
Seems the LGBT community isn't unified against this law at all. Just the extremists in that group.
So we have what amounts to the LGBT mafia, using bullying and propaganda aided by the Biased Lame Stream Media both being dishonest in the continued reporting of the false meme that this law enables businesses to discriminate against LGBT or anyone else. It does not.
This just limits what government can impose on someone in the face of their religious beliefs, a concept in and of itself which has been signed into law at the federal level for many years as well as the majority of states in one form or another.
Nancy Pelosi said: “We have to pass it, to find out what’s in it.” A Doctor called to a radio show & said: "That's the definition of a stool sample"
"Under my plan of a cap-and-trade system, electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket," Barack Obama January 2008
Right makes might.
Has Tammy Bruce ever met an anti-gay argument she didn't agree with?
Speaking of spineless. For once I would love to see a modern day conservative take the blame for something. Instead of always pointing fingers at the left, or the liberal media, it's always someone elses fault. Simply admit Pence and Hutchinson and the Republicans in the states governments screwed up. They wrote crappy bills that were too broad and vague and then tried to say their bills mirrored the Fed RFRA, but they do not mirror the Fed bill. And they got caught. They need to fix the bills and move on.
