Do You Support Religious Freedom Laws? [POLL]
The State of Indiana is dealing with a PR battle after liberal activists and politicians began protesting a bill signed into law called the Religious Freedom Restoration Act. The State of Arkansas has passed a similar piece of legislation as well. According to the Washington Times, many of the possible 2016 Republican candidates have defended the Indiana law.
Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, neurosurgeon Ben Carson, Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, and former Sen. Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania spoke out in favor of the Indiana Religious Freedom Restoration Act, similar to a law already passed by 19 other states and the federal government.
“Nobody is saying that it should be legal to deny someone service at a restaurant or at a hotel because of their sexual orientation. I think that’s a consensus view in America,” Mr. Rubio said on Fox News on Monday. “The flip side is, should a photographer be punished for refusing to do a wedding that their faith teaches them is not one that is valid in the eyes of God?”
