Arkansas Passes Freedom of Religion Bill

Arkansas has just passed a new bill similar to the one passed in Indiana which has caused an uproar.  The bill seeks to protect the religious freedoms of citizens in Arkansas after the wave of lawsuits by LGBT against religious businesses claiming discrimination. The state’s Republican governor, Asa Hutchinson is expected to sign it into law.

Already the threats to boycott Arkansas are being made.  Perhaps this is the way to fight back this tyrannical minority, by passing these laws in many states making it impossible for businesses and others to protest.  If many states pass similar laws, then how can Apple, Starbucks and other businesses who cater to the LGBT agenda be able to survive without making money in these states?




I will update this post if more information comes in.
