    Indiana's RFRA protects a class.
    Then why'd Bill Clinton sign it into law, along with the support of some of the very liberals that are now screaming like stuck pigs?

    But they would have the right that some here feel they are being denied.

    So do you believe that $$ would overcome their "principles?"

    I'm not being contentious....I'm just asking.

    I asked about religious campaigns preventing certain sinners from marrying. (successful or not). The Catholic Church is the only one I'm aware of
    and you didnt really answer.

    There was no "campaign" because the entire society was a campaign. There was no "campaign" against marriage because the concept would have been dismissed as ridiculous.

    And then at least supported it or apologized after.

    On the contrary, it is your use of the word "campaign" that is ludicrous. I merely highlighted your silliness and ahistorical viewpoint.

    Ok then. If that is the "fix" he signs, we're good to go and all arguments to the contrary, that the law was intended to permit the denial of service to anyone under the color of religious freedom, were in error.
    “VICTORY AT THE STATEHOUSE!” proclaimed a press release from Advance America, a conservative group whose leader, Eric Miller, was invited to join Pence at a private signing ceremony at the statehouse. “Christian bakers, florists and photographers should not be punished for refusing to participate in a homosexual marriage!”

    This week, lawmakers tweaked the law, adding language to “clarify” that it cannot be used by businesses, landlords and others to turn away gay customers. After an outcry by major companies, sports organizations and entertainers, as well as gay activists, lawmakers in Arkansas, Georgia and North Carolina amended similar measures or abandoned them completely.
