    It already does. Forget his legacy. His current standing in the view of anyone who isn't a petty hater is irreparably tarnished. The same holds true for the legislators, their voters, heck the entire state

    If this is something you feel passionate about, you can certainly start/support an effort to amend the Constitution and try get the actual law to be more in line with what you think it ought to be.

    The hospitals all receive federal funding and insurance like medicaid/medicare and are therefore all subject to discrimination and public accomodation laws,.
    Yes, already mentioned.

    Take a look at the incredibly short list of "RFRA" cases that succeed and then try to convince me that this will offer ANY protection in those 12 counties that currently ban discrimination.

    Believe me, gays who can afford it have been flocking out of the ghetto midwest for decades.
    Consumerism works both ways, that's what's beautiful about it. For instance there are many, many companies I refuse to do business with specifically and exclusively because of their public political stances.

    See how that works?

    And in a constitutional democracy, you can get the govt to do anything, but only if you get enough people to agree with you. That's how our govt works.

    And if you think that people should not be able to have the govt they want to have, but only be allowed to have the govt you think they should be allowed to have, then you are just as coercive and dismissive of "liberty" as anyone else.
    Ok, so we're settled, in Indiana, it's ok to discriminate because democracy.

    Yes, baking a cake for a homosexual is against your religion. I guess I missed that part in the bible. People like you are using your religion as a shield when you know it comes from your own personal bigotry. There is zero difference between this and hanging a "No Blacks Allowed" sign outside. Keep acting like Christ.
