Indiana - FIX THIS NOW

This is what the Indianapolis Star's front page says. 

What's happening?!  Gov. Mike Pence has been back-peddaling from the time their Religious Freedom Restoration Act was passed.  He blames social media and national news outlets for the misunderstandings of the law and the negative image that is now painted about Indiana. 

He needs to encourage the "good people" of Indiana to look in the mirror. 

The RFRA doesn't specify that any one group should descriminate against any other, rather, it protects them in their choice to do so.  It is no misconception what the intent was of the shop owners who put signs in their window, right under the 'open for business' signs that said ' NO GAYS ALLOWED". 

For shame, Hoosiers, for shame.  The governor calls you "...a loving, kind, generous, decent, and kind people.".... I don't see how, not when you're runnining with this RFRA and using it to exclude so many. 

The only two things Jesus asks us to do, AS CHRISTIANS, is love God above all other, and love our neighbors as ourselves.  Not love every third person who is in a heterosexual relationship and meets our criteria for being good..... And if you are one of the millions of people who suffers from self-loathing and depression, that does not give you the right to hate everyone as you hate yourself.  You are still called to love- it just means that you have to work on loving you too.
