    It's not to allow people to practice their religion, but protections against impeding new interpretations of hate speech / bigotry. It has been the belief of Christians (as well as other religions) for thousands of years, that homosexuality is against God's laws. As he created us man and woman. However, thanks to the tax funded religion of evolution, we now have a society that thinks we're all animals and came from primordial soup a billion years ago.

    Some people just don't see what's happening to the morals and values of America.

    This law isn't saying ANYTHING about 'it's okay to discriminate', what it IS saying is that  you can use religious belief as a defense in a court of law. It's up to the court to decide if it'll hold. Can the people in this nation please understand what they are outraged about first? Like George Wills said: 'there's nothing more tiresome in modern American life than the indignation sweepstakes we get in all the time to see who can get the most angry about this or that''. And honestly? If I open up a photography business and have my office in my room I can refuse to go to your wedding for whatever reason I want to. Maybe I'm tired? Maybe I just dont like you? You can't make me take up the offer, because it IS an offer, at least until the government makes it mandatory that I take the offer up. My business my choice. But fine, let's play this game: I'm gonna force my local Rabbi to serve Pork at a gay wedding while the Muslims bake a cake with a picture of Muhhameds face on it. Religion? Get the fuck outta here.

    The crowd is a special blend of happy and proud, they get to force other people to have sex like them, or not at all.

    Sexual orientation is a human right,  Religion is a CHOICE.  Human rights should ALWAYS trump religious rights.

    to the United States Constitution prohibits the making of any law respecting an establishment of religion.

    The constitution makes it clear that the church and state are separate and allows people to protest and petition laws and voice grievances

    r
    Its Not Quid Pro Quo

    Without the Religious Freedom Restoration Act it will be open season on Christians by Militant Homosexuals who are already targeting Christians business related to the marriage industry.

    Many Christians have lost their jobs, business and livelihoods and have paid heavy fines and court costs.  What have Homosexuals lost, nothing.

    They can go to secular places of business for marriage and even watered down places of worship, but CHOSE to target REAL Christians out of hate. Because Homosexuals can't bare the thought that their are people out there that think their lifestyle is disordered and perverted.

    But the Crocodile tears and cries of "injustice" will just keep coming for them.

    Will the secular media ever do an in depth story on people whose lives are ruined by militant Homosexuals….??!!  No they won't.

    So "being gay" is a race now? I thought it was a unnatural sexually perverse choice of rebellion against God. Comparing segregation/race inequality to fighting for keeping the commandments of God is ridiculous. More distract, divide and conquer tactics for the people of this nation. Bread and circuses..

    I don't have to allow anyone in my home, car, business. Grocery stores has a policy of no shirt no shoes no service ame with a restaurant a bar owner can throw you out of his establishment if he deems your actions are dangerous and disruptive the whole point is we should have the. right! On how we conduct business.

    The one thing I keep thinking about is if a private business should be allowed to hire, serve or do any type of business with anyone they chose or not chose? I guess ultimately I would have to say yes and government should stay out of those choices no matter how anti gay, religious or stupid those choices may be. So if Hooters only wants to hire women waitresses, Chick'Filet only wants to serve heterosexual people, and the KKK only wants to allow bigoted racists assholes into their club then I guess those private businesses should be allowed to make those poor choices and simply deal with the ramifications. Does it seem strange that I think this way?

    At what point does this equality to protect citizens from harm examine the cannabis laws?

    Why is it that those who demand tolerance the loudest are the least tolerant of differing views? Why is it so hard to accept that some of us believe that committing acts of homosexuality is morally wrong and by participating in any way we believe we have commited sin? Why is someone who holds that viewpoint labeled a hate filled bigot? Just because someone disagrees with your lifestyle doesnt mean he hates you. Diversity doesnt mean everyone walking lockstep to the exact same values and ideals. The First Amendment guarantees us freedom of speech and religion. The act of forcing a business owner to provide a service that goes directly against his personal conscience is unAmerican and in direct violation of the First Amendment. A PRIVATE business should be able to do business or refuse to do business with whomever its owner chooses for whatever reason.

    The problem i have with Tim Cook and all the other so call tolerance police is that,One the diference is whites only they had no where else to go and the LGBT community can choose not to go to indiana.Instead they are showing how they are just caring about themselves and nobody else and how tolerance is a one sided issue and that is why i can not see the tolerance card being reached because they only want tolerance for themselves and no one else

    I don't have a problem with this law because I want people to associate with who ever they want to. I love all people and I treat all equally but I don't think people have a right to force me to associate with anyone. My question is; Why would anyone want to do business with someone who thinks less of them?

    Maybe they'll start requiring people to wear color-coded arm bands to signify religion, sexual orientation or immigration status. Hmmm, wasn't there another group of right-wing christians who did something similar during the mid-20th century?
