Why Indiana needs 'religious freedom' legislation

I am a supporter of gay rights, including same-sex marriage. But as an informed legal scholar, I also support the proposed Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act (RFRA). How can this be?

It's because — despite all the rhetoric — the bill has little to do with same-sex marriage and everything to do with religious freedom.

The bill would establish a general legal standard, the "compelling interest" test, for evaluating laws and governmental practices that impose substantial burdens on the exercise of religion.

I'll just cut and paste my comments from Facebook about this subject.

The whole thing about religious freedom laws piss me off. There is only one reason they are needed. Gays have been known to target Christian bakers. Plain and simple. If it weren't for them targeting Christians, the actual problem of a business not catering or serving gays would happen very rarely.

Think of it this way. Would you want to go to any business where the owners and possibly every worker disapprove of your lifestyle? You might get a very very done cake, or just maybe, damn the bad luck, they get it done late. Or maybe they make it as soon as you order it and let it sit in their freezer for two months.

 It's BS and gays are just forcing everyone to accept perverted lifestyle.

It was pointed out today by the Governor of Indiana to George Snuffleupagus that George's boss Clinnochio signed the same bill into law many years ago.
That didn't slow Snuffleupagus down one bit from trying to lynch the Indiana Governor.
