Since Indiana has passed THAT law has anyone seen or heard of businesses putting up any signs

either stating they will with hold services or stating they will give services equally to anyone?

1. I found a protest sticker sign, good for them.

A window sticker on a downtown Indianapolis business, Wednesday, March 25, 2015, shows its objection to the Religious Freedom bill passed by the Indiana legislature.

2. None of the former, plenty of the latter

Stores on Mass Ave in Indy (a fairly trendy area) have them all over the place, and there's a web site for businesses interested in making similar "will serve everyone" statements.

Kind of a second-rate Onion. It seemed too perfect to be true, and it was.

11. Singing the bill "in a private, closed-door ceremony. "

made me think of them in a closet.
I am so sick of all this secrecy on behalf of elected officials.

12. They took the vote in public and have been very open about it all. For me it is the content of the

 

law not the manner in which it was signed that is so very wrong.

13. Both are bad

This is the photo the governor's office released of the signing. Democracy at its finest?

What kind of image is this? Does this suggest he is the governor of all the people of the state, or does he represent a push for something approaching theocracy? The one campaign ad I saw from his run for governor consistes of an endless stream of RW Christian dogwhistle phrases, (humble?)bragging about his "servant's heart" and such. I want to puke.

This is the same guy who wanted to create a taxpayer-funded propaganda ministry. Pence is an enemy of American democracy.

16. It is spooky

I thought it was straight out of the Onion when I first saw it. Didn't think to make it an OP - I saw it enough on FB (since I'm in Indiana).

17. Google tells me Indiana has less than 900,000 people.

Is that correct?

So half of the voting age supports gender bias?

Seems to me a good Twitter campaign could reach most of the pop. there pretty easily.

18. Total population is around 6.5 million

Maybe that's Indianapolis' population?

In any case, I think the people who most support this idiocy are not big Twitter users. The young folks by and large do not support this. There's certainly a lot of social media pushback underway.

14. It's because they are chickenshit, and at the end of the day can't stand up for what they did.

This is also how the Right to Work bill was signed into law here a few years back. In the dead of night, with no one around.

That picture with Pence and all his smiling religious buddies has galvanized my anger. That pic SAYS IT ALL. Those are the folks who drove this law, and want to shove their beliefs down the rest of our throats, leading to God only knows how many bad, unintended consequences. If Pence and the rest of these people had any balls, and the true courage of their convictions, this would have been signed at high noon right in the middle of the statehouse rotunda, for all to see.

Own what you do. Do it publicly. You're just expressing your faith, right????
