    Why is "big govt." so obsessed with religion that they are passing laws allowing discrimination in its name?

    Arkansas Governor Asks Legislators to Recall Religious Freedom Bill

    Arkansas governor: Bill needs changes before I sign it

    Arkansas passes an even worse RFRA law than Indiana ... even voting on this bill as Indiana is withering under a national ass kicking.

    Lol. Politically obtuse dumb asses.

    Government is agnostic, as it should be. Legislators, well that's a bit different, so I don't think your characterization really works.
    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Legislators are the living tree of the government. What you're saying makes no sense.

    Like I said in the other thread, the secular progressives along with a completely myopic MSM are using the gay rights movement as cover. This is ALL about moving religious America back into the church and ONLY the church, and even there it's not safe for them. If they had it all there way, they'd abolish religion completely, and all you people are not seeing this for what it is. To the gay left, You're the useful idiots, just like black American's, OWS are the useful idiots for the Democratic party. It's the same thing.. Sure they have the same goals perhaps, BUT stopping discrimination isn't where the ACLU's of the world, and Progressives want it to stop. Nope.. They want even less religion and places to practice it. THAT is their goal!

    Re: Arkansas passes its own religious freedom bill despite uproar in Indiana

    The Indiana legislature has reportedly reached a consensus on amending the state's RFRA law and it will be reviewed by Gov. Pence today before a vote transpires. It is a compromise that will dispel some of the harsher criticisms of the law, but a compromise in which neither liberals nor conservatives will be totally happy. According to insiders, 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.

    In Arkansas, Gov. Hutchinson asked for the state's RFRA law to be recalled and amended. By a 26-6 vote, the state Senate on Wednesday approved a bill that more closely resembles the federal RFRA law. The state House is scheduled to debate and vote on the amended measure today. It is felt that forming a legislative consensus in Arkansas will be more difficult than in Indiana.

    Arkansas senator Bart Hester, who presented the original bill in his chamber told reporters: "The Arkansas RFRA did not mirror the federal RFRA law. That was intentional."
