The American Taliban strike again:

The American Taliban strike again:

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana Gov. Mike Pence on Thursday signed into law a religious objections bill that some convention organizers and business leaders have opposed amid concern it could allow discrimination against gay people. Indiana is the first state to enact such a change this year among about a dozen where such proposals have been introduced. The measure would prohibit state and local laws that "substantially burden" the ability of people — including businesses and associations — to follow their religious beliefs.

Pence, a Republican, backed the bill as it moved through the Legislature and spoke at a Statehouse rally last month that drew hundreds of supporters. The governor signed the bill in a private ceremony.

Pence said in a statement Thursday that the bill ensures "religious liberty is fully protected under Indiana law."

"The Constitution of the United States and the Indiana Constitution both provide strong recognition of the freedom of religion, but today, many people of faith feel their religious liberty is under attack by government action," he said.

Reaction to the decision was swift and divided.

{Once again many Republicans are using "freedom of religion" to discriminate against minorities such as gays to try to end or harass women from having legal abortions. They cannot force the majority of the American people to follow their religious dictums so they are always looking for other devious methods to get their way. They seem to think that " the end justifies the means" and God would appreciate them trying to get their way by cheating and going against the peoples will. They seem to be convinced that any unethical behavior is allowable as long as its being done for their twisted concept of Christianity. This is the reason they are often called "the American Taliban".}

"libido sciendi"..... the passion to know.
