    From what I have gleaned groups such as below had substantial input on writing for the original bill.

    I'm not sure what you are disagreeing with. Could you flesh out your thoughts in your own words?

    The law would or could provide discrimination based upon a vendors religious beliefs.

    And yet, we were discussing 'campaigns' against such. Not just 'rules'. You were going to document such publicly organized campaigns where religious organizations and/or churches funded and carried out efforts to make such marriages for other sinners (like adulterers, fornicators, pedophiles, murderers, etc) illegal. So, still waiting.

    (As I said, the Catholic Church doesnt approve or perform them. That is different from trying to convince governments and the public that they should be illegal....You implied I was uninformed and that they did indeed exist. Please 'inform' me.)

    Your use of the word "campaign" is inappropriate. Churches have doctrine and that has been plain for centuries.

    From the Indianapolis Star coverage:

    ". . . The compromise legislation specifies that the new religious freedom law cannot be used as a legal defense to discriminate against patrons based on their sexual orientation or gender identity.

    The proposal goes much further than a "preamble" that was proposed earlier in the week, and, if it stands, would be the first time any protections against discrimination have been extended to gays and lesbians in state law. But it doesn't go as far as establishing gays and lesbians as a protected class of citizens statewide or repealing the law outright, both things Republican leaders have said they could not support.

    INDIANAPOLIS STAR





    Specifically, the new language says the RFRA does not authorize a provider — including businesses or individuals — to refuse to offer or provide services, facilities, goods, employment, housing or public accommodation to any member of the public based on sexual orientation or gender identity, in addition to race, color, religion, ancestry, age, national origin, disability, sex or military service.
    The proposed language exempts churches or other nonprofit religious organizations — including affiliated schools — from the definition of "provider."

    What line do you see that needs to be drawn?

    Seems pretty clear.

    Then you shouldnt have used it in your claim that I was uninformed re: such things occuring in the past.

    And as a more general term, it actually does work...that's why I explained more detail, even in my last post....so you'd be able to support your claim and show me how uninformed I am.

    We'll see. I suspect resistance will concentrate on those services whose provision would require the provider to participate in the conscience-offending activity. A wedding planner, for example, or a caterer asked to provide servers.

    Instead of carving out protections for one group or another, all that needs to be done is have Congress apply the accommodation laws to a limited number of businesses like hospitals, restaurants, hotel/motels, gas stations etc. and exempt business owners. Those businesses who are in remote areas should be under accommodation laws to ensure everyone in that area could not be denied.

    According to the most remote towns in this country, the top ten have multiple listings for bakeries. Even the most remote, which is Barrow, AK.

    I think that is all that needs to be said and makes the wheels on the gay agenda bus go flat.

    If I understand you correctly, your claim has been that religious bodies opposed to gay marriage because they see it as sin have nonetheless sanctioned marriages by other groups whose behavior they also call sinful. You mentioned fornicators and adulterers (perhaps among others). Fornication (sex outside marriage) fails as an example because for the church marriage is a proper remedy for fornication. For the church gay marriage cannot be a similar remedy for gay fornication because gay sex inside a gay marriage remains a sin.

    Adultery is a better discussion. Generally those denominations most accepting of gay marriage are also those most likely to consecrate marriages between parties who have been divorced. The denominations most opposed to gay marriage are also those least accepting of marriages between divorced parties. Thus, all are generally being true to their convictions.
