Hatin’ on Indiana
“Boycott Indiana” is trending on Twitter at the moment. What are they up to in that state? Wait until you hear what’s going on!
Why, those miscreants are going to allow business owners to conduct business with whomever they choose. Nazi’s.
Uber liberal idiot Keith Olbermann called for the “Final Four” to be pulled from Indiana.
The best I can figure is that Olbermann’s mom forced the neighborhood kids to play with him, so he feels (notice it’s all about feeeeelings with liberals) like businesses should be FORCED to serve everyone.
What happened to “No shirts, no shoes, no service”? That’s probably “hate speech” now if I had to guess.
Never mind the fact that eighteen other states have legislation similar to Indiana’s; it’s a hate-fest at the moment.
This #BoycottIndiana cracks me up. On 1 side there are a bunch of racist, intolerant, oppressive, hateful ppl; the other side, NOT liberals.

“This bill is not about discrimination,” Pence said, “and if I thought it legalized discrimination I would have vetoed it.”
Senate Bill 101 prohibits state or local governments from substantially burdening a person’s ability to exercise their religion — unless the government can show that it has a compelling interest and that the action is the least-restrictive means of achieving it. It takes effect July 1.
Although the bill does not mention sexual orientation, opponents fear it could allow business owners to deny services to gays and lesbians for religious reasons.
Pence signed the bill during a private ceremony in his Statehouse office just before 10 a.m. Thursday. He was joined by supportive lawmakers, Franciscan monks and nuns, orthodox Jews, and some of the state’s most powerful lobbyists on conservative social issues.
The event was closed to the public and the press.
The bill signing makes Indiana the 20th state in the nation to adopt such legislation. It is modeled on the federal Religious Freedom Restoration Act, which President Bill Clinton signed in 1993.
