Yes, that Indiana, the State famous for its many cornfields and anonymity among the 'I' states. It has for years now apparently been the scene of religious persecution as god-fearing Indianans have been forced to treat gay and lesbians like regular folk.
|Above: one of the many gay-wedding cakes Indiana Christians|
have been forced to bake, and then accept payment for, despite that
the fact that the Bible specifically forbids same-sex cake toppers.
|Remember that bullshit?|
But that's shouldn't upset you because President Obama voted for a similar bill back when he was a Senator in Illinois. You know, the other 'I' state:
|"We're the Buckeye state, right?"|
-Indiana Governor Mike Pence,
also unsure as to which state is Indiana
Oh, and if that kinds of sounds like it's a license for business owners to discriminate, don't worry, this isn't about discrimination. Um, somehow.
|"For the last time Nicole, no where in|
here do I say anything like that. At all."
-Jesus, kind of sick of it
There, you see? It's about protecting business owners from having to violate their religious beliefs. Even if they can't point to a specific tenet to support whatever stance they're taking.
|So exactly this.|
|Crossroads of America is just a nice way of saying|
you just drive through it on the way to someplace else.
*You may have noticed that Pence just cited Barack Obama voting for a similar bill back in Illinois as a reason everyone should get onboard with the RFRA, while at the same time holding up the President's Affordable Care Act as the reason Indiana needs to defend religious people from government meddling. If that makes your ears bleed from the illogic of politics, you're not alone.
|When the President votes for your petty, homophobic bill he's a paragon|
of bipartisanship. When he tries to get health care for people who
can't afford it, he's an example of governmental overreach.
