Response to Lamonte (Reply #19)

34. Welcome to DU, Lamonte!

Glad you're here. "Does anyone think there is protection from this in the new law?" NOPE. Well, not reasonable, reality-based thinkers anyway. But these folks in their lovely little bubble just think they're getting the government off their own backs. And that's a goooooood thing. Especially when it forces the government into the lives and hearts of everybody else.

BELIEVE IT. This law would give ANYBODY who doesn't like something to use their religion to justify anti-social, cruel, exclusionary, or hurtful behavior. DISCRIMINATORY behavior. Look at Hobby Lobby - and women's access to health care! That's not a gay thing. That's a misogynist thing. And you better believe that some out there might try to apply it to blacks, to the poor, to ANYBODY. They WILL try to use this to impose their narrow views on everybody else. "MY religion trumps YOUR rights." This has become an epidemic. I hope the whole "Indiana experiment" here starts to turn the tide on that one. Because this shit needs to stop!!!!
