Their "values" are as we speak being hijacked by their greed and political aspirations. That is because they have no values, or beliefs. These rural dwellers always get fooled into voting against their own interests, hoping republicans will save them from the mythical gay agenda, if not abortion and the 'darkies,' but hey guess what, repubs can't even manage that anymore!
Just makes me wonder what group they'll target next to convince the poor meth addicts in hicksville to vote repub
You know in some convoluted way i'm glad indiana is doing this. Too many were unaware that for instance there is no employment or housing protection for LGBT. Gay marriage gets all the attention, but it's far from the only issue
They'll come up with another bogeyman to keep the Republican base mad, scared and voting GOP. And yep they'll keep voting against their interest too.Just makes me wonder what group they'll target next to convince the poor meth addicts in hicksville to vote repub

What boggles my mind is that all these religions, Christian, Jew, Muslim whatever need to do is have a coming to Jesus moment. (See what I did there) If they all came together to organize a internet and bulling campaign on their own, these little gaystoppo nimrods wouldn't have a foot to stand on, and the complicit MSM pushing all this along would be frightened little girly girls, just like all these states and corporations threatening boycotts, would run like the wind pushing each other out of the way to get back to the right side of things..
So comical, watching all this play out right now that a very small minority is causing so much stir. All it would take is someone to lead the religious into the light, and begin fighting back, and all you little giddy progressives would cower. Thing is, the ACLU and the IRS have it so churches and synagogues cannot bring it up in service as to not lose their tax exempt status.. LOL How freaking funny is that? They're not even allowed (Because religion is protected by the first amendment ya know) to talk about it in their own church and fight back...
Seems like the progressives have it all figured out regarding religion in this country. They've made it so their targets have no speech to fight back with.. What a great country, eh? Well, I should say Christians as their main target because they're easy to pick on, Jews not so much, and Muslims.. Hehehe, well we all know how brave and principled progressive really are when the chips fall..

And you're a little misinformed about what a church can and can't do with regard to lobbying. For example, churches follow the same rules as other tax exempt orgs. Here's a nice primer. Here's one that covers churches.
Short version is churches and the ACLU can "educate" their flock about the issues but can't say, "Vote for Ted." And if they want to engage in a "Vote for Ted" campaign, they can of course. They just have to use assets other than those of the non-profit, so they can and do form 501(c)(4) orgs and take NON-deductible donations to that organization to fund "Vote for Ted" efforts. It's a common sense way to prevent laundering non-deductible campaign contributions through a 501(c)(3) organization and allowing the donor to then deduct those expenses. No one's voice is silenced. A church or environmental org just can't use funds designated for charity in the political arena.
But the "woe is me, I'm a victim" stuff is touching.
