    Washington gov, Seattle mayor ban official travel to Indiana in wake of 'religious fr

    The backlash to Indiana's new religious freedom law grew Monday, even as state lawmakers move to clarify the legislation, with Wash. Gov. Jay Inslee and Seattle Mayor Ed Murray banning government-funded travel to Indiana.

    It is not a fight for freedom anymore, it is a witch hunt! If Jay Inslee and Ed Murray believe undermining Indiana's tourism industry is a good way to make local inhabitants more tolerant I've got bad news for them. They can disagree with Indiana's decision but they have no moral authority to "impose embargo" on these people.

    RFRA was adopted by the legally elected representative of people of Indiana. It is democracy in action. If you want to live in a liberal utopia get out of America and let us make our choice.

    Presumably the Coaches of Washington and Washington St will not be at the Final Four this weekend.

    1. This is meaningless and idiotic.

    2. But it is useful in that it highlights who, in our grand ole republic, is idiotic and prone to perform meaningless gestures.


    I wonder when they will ban travel to the other two dozen or so states who have the same laws, or the rest of the US, for that matter.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    I think i'm seeing a pattern of states too far away to even conceivably have official travel to indiana

    Which is undoubtedly due to the entire midwest and south being FUBAR

    Yeah, makes me wonder why we aren't hosting conventions in seattle instead of going to them in Indy, I mean it's not like we squandered.... I mean invested taxpayer money while simultaniously jacking up traffic on I-5 permanently by building that giant convention center over the freeway in downtown or anything, and it sits empty half the year.... If inslee and Murray really wanted to send a message they'd offer to host every upcoming Indy convention

    what convention would that be, the freaking basketball tournament for 19 year olds?

    the west coast has some issues re: national events with this thing called a time zone. But it's also far more palatable to major business and the educated in general than the dying midwest, and these regressive and oppressive laws aren't going to help

    You live in Seattle. Why are your tax dollars paying for city officials' non-essential travel to Indiana anyway?

    Is the Seattle Governor going to institute a official travel ban to Illinois ?

    They have amd have had a similar law for some time.

    19 States have similar Religious Freedom laws, including Illinois.
