Religious Freedom Wins!

There is a big commotion going on social media and in the traditional media regarding a bill that was signed into law in Indiana. The bill was signed by Governor Mike Pence after passing 63-31 in the House and 40-10 in the Senate and serves to protect religious freedom in the state.  Liberals and other LGBT supporters are calling this new law an open invitation to discrimination. However, those in favor of the law say that the reaction the LGBT agenda is giving the law shows exactly why the law is needed.

Since the LGBT has been gaining wins in courts throughout the states, religious groups have suffered greatly.  Bakers, churches, and other institutions have been sued for refusing to endorse the LGBT lifestyle which is contrary to their religious beliefs.  This law "“prohibits a governmental entity from substantially burdening a person's exercise of religion, even if the burden results from a rule of general applicability, unless the governmental entity can demonstrate that the burden: (1) is in furtherance of a compelling governmental interest; and (2) is the least restrictive means of furthering the compelling governmental interest.”

On Twitter and other social networks, #BoycottIndiana has been trending with frustrated individuals crying foul at the passing of this bill.  Businesses and other institutions are threatening to take their business elsewhere if Governor Pence does not veto the law.  Talk about bullying...  This goes to show you how this tyrannical minority wants to be the one to "run the show," so to speak. They do not care when religious businesses and persons are sued for adhering to their religious beliefs. Religious people have to take their agenda or suffer the consequences.  Well, Indiana said "enough!" This law is not meant to discriminate against anyone.  It is meant to protect religious freedom which has been under attack. Recently, a ban was placed on an archdiocese in New Jersey preventing it from selling headstones for its own cemetery!  In California, Archbishop Salvatore is being pressured to change his hiring practices in favor of one that rejects the Church's moral standard.

Those protesting the Indiana law are ignorant of the facts.  This bill has been a work in progress for over 20 years. Ironically, Democratic, president Bill Clinton signed the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act which was passed almost unanimously by Congress.  There was no protest then because the LGBT agenda did not enjoy the power and audience it does now. Also, president Obama while senator in Illinois was in favor of a Religious Freedom Act that was brought up in 1998.

The passing of this bill in Indiana is testament of what religious people can do.  We cannot sit back and let tyrannical minorities pervert society, our children, marriage and our laws. It is time to stand up to this Goliath and bring it down to size. Our nation was founded on religious freedom. European settlers fled Europe in search for a land where they can believe, pray and worship how they wished without interference from the government or anyone else.  Kudos to Governor Pence for signing the bill into law and protecting religious freedom.  Let us pray that other states follow.
