-Firestorm Over Indiana’s Religious Liberty Bill

The national media was in a firestorm and a feeding frenzy this last weekend over Indiana’s Religious Freedom Restoration Act or RFRA which was signed into law last week by Gov. Mike Pence. It was mostly ignorant disinformation since Indiana’s bill merely mirrors the 1993 federal law signed by President Clinton and similar RFRA legislation passed previously in 20 different states.

Yet by the extreme reaction and outrage one would have thought that the Indiana RFRA was entirely new, unique, and specifically targeting LGBT rights and creating some kind of new state sanctioned discrimination rather than protecting religious liberty and supporting the First Amendment of the Constitution. Meanwhile, some of the media folks, politicians, and activists calling for boycotts against Indiana actually live in some of those very states that have similar RFRA laws.

If you are interested in the facts about Indiana’s bill and what RFRA laws actually do and don’t do, here’s an excellent article to read from the Federalist.com
