Heterophobia running wild over Indiana religious freedom bill
Ignorant heterophobes are attacking Indiana over its religious freedom bill. Apple's CEO, the gay Tim Cook, doesn't like the law. The rating service Angie's List is so preoccupied with the bill that maybe they should call themselves Angie's Lust. The city of San Francisco has announced a travel ban, a loss of all the untold number of SF city employees who go to Indiana every week. The mayor of Chicago, the former ballerina Rahm Emmanuel, wants more businesses who support gay sex to move to Chicago.
What's going on here is ignorance and heterophobia. All the good people of Indiana want is the freedom not to participate in gay marriage. But that's not good enough for the heterophobes. They feel threatened unless all heterosexuals approve of their dangerous forms of sex and participate in their bonding ceremonies. It's not enough for them to have the freedom to do what they do; they are intolerant of anyone who doesn't endorse their risky lifestyle and support their propagandizing in favor of it.
And speaking of endorsements, where have the presidential candidates been on this? To his credit, Jeb Bush has endorsed the law. So have Rick Santorum and Bobby Jindal. And so has Ted Cruz.
“Governor Pence is holding the line to protect religious liberty in the Hoosier State,” Mr. Cruz said. “Indiana is giving voice to millions of courageous conservatives across this country who are deeply concerned about the ongoing attacks upon our personal liberties.”
As for Scott Walker's view...well, I'll let him speak for himself:
Gov. Scott Walker today was noncommittal on whether he believes Wisconsin should adopt something similar to Indiana's "religious freedom" law, saying it's not something that's been debated at any length here "but we'll have to see in the future."
Asked if businesses should have the option to refuse service to customers, such as gays, based on religious grounds, Walker replied, "Well again, in our state, there's a balance between wanting to make sure there is not discrimination but at the same time, respecting religious freedoms. We do that different ways than what they’ve done in the state of Indiana, and certainly that’s going to be part of the debate here and across the country.”
Walker, who was in Milwaukee for a public appearance, would not say whether he would sign such a law, saying he did not expect such a bill coming “any time soon.”
I am sure the Scott Walker supporters will find encouragement in his response. For everyone else, I say we need a president who isn't afraid to speak out for conservative principles.
