Children should have a choice, never be forced into something
This isn't about the LGBT or anything to do with gays. This is about freedom, people are afraid and scared of something that for so long has been hidden from them. This bill gives people the freedom to choose who to do business with which is a right.
The religious people are being discriminated against in this country, this bill will stop that discrimination.
Its been stated several times that discrimination is not the intent of the law. People should be allowed to do what they want with their business, free association of individuals. Any law forcing people to accommodate others that they fundamentally disagree with violates their rights. Its also digging a hole for, say, a gay couple that owns a bed and breakfast being forced to accommodate a Baptist wedding or some convention speaking against their beliefs. I doubt they'd want to endure that same treatment themselves.
Freedom of religion. It's time we dusted off our Constitution and started using it again.
This law is vague enough to be used as an excuse for many things, including discrimination. If it isn't about discrimination then why doesn't the legislature put in a clear amendments to give the LQBTQ community protections?
I don't support the religious freedom laws because the law allows people to discriminate against gays. That's the basic area of the law. Religious freedom goes to far when they use it as an excuse to discriminate. If you go one step further, 2 john 1:9-11 Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds." Basically, Christians, it's a sin to associate yourselves with atheists! Should the law allow them to decline service to us because of out atheism? Saying that people cannot use religion to discriminate is not discrimination.
