    I know you didn't. But I can see the point I was making went right over your head.

    These governors are backing down because the Corps. are beating them up over these backwards, stupid laws. Of course all this backlash would have never happened in Indy and Arkansas if they had learned from what happened in Arizona last year. But they didn't learn, their ideology and hatred it got in the way, so now they are paying the price.

Some politicians have realized this already...others are late to the game (like Pence). They are all learning though that the right-wing social agenda is no longer helpful to them in their political efforts.
    Oh, but they obviously do want bigotry and suppression of religious rights to free expression. Thing is, that it is not the conservative right that is now suppressing people anymore. It is now the gay crowd that is acting anti constitutional with the courts supporting them like they did some time ago the conservatives. Quite interesting really, the way things have swung around.

    You sound full of hatred. But if you think that protecting the rights guaranteed by the Constitution amounts to "backward, stupid laws" I guess you have a point. On the other hand, it seems as bigoted as the people that suppressed the gays in the old days.

    No they don't. No one is telling anyone what they can practice in their church or in their homes. People have the right to free religious expression and always will....there is nothing threatening that. What they don't have a right to do is to use that religion as a shield and proclaim that it allows them to discriminate.

    It's the right-wing nut jobs that are the bigots. If the shoe fits, wear it!

    Ah in the 'old days' huh? So the gays are not suppressed anymore, especially by conservatives? This whole problem NOW is the gays themselves? And the media? The courts? Clinton? And of course Obama, everything is his fault. Everyone is to blame but the Republicans and conservatives. Right?

    Sad thing is I really think you believe that.

    I'm just talking about Arkansas, when their biggest employer Walmart is pressuring the Hutchinson NOT to sign the bill.

    When any states biggest employer speaks, the governor will take note.
