Okay, this is not for Obama '12 or Newt Now!, not anything like that. I have just noticed there are a lot of one liners and bumper stickers that hit home, lately.

So let's post them here and have real discussions elsewhere.

Here is an example of what I am speaking;

"A mind is like a parachute, it only works when fully opened"

or

"God is too big for one religion".

"It looks to me as if the law would only apply if someone could demonstrate that their religion required that they not do business with homosexuals"

Or their religions does not accept same-sex unions are or can be marriages.

If the marriage issue were taken off the table, there would be hardly any cases of discrimination, and probably none that would stand up in court. And I suspect an RFRA would not make any difference.

And the bumper sticker:

Freedom of same-sex 'marriage': Not in the Constitution
Freedom of religion

"Because that's what SCOTUS ruled."

SCOTUS ruled that RFRA of 1993 did not apply to the states. (City of Boerne v. Flores, 521 U.S. 507 (1997))

"So why does any state need one?"

Oh dear. This will not fit on a bumper.

The Religious Freedom Restoration Act of 1993 applies only to actions by the federal government.

Indiana's RFRA applies only to actions taken by the State of Indiana.

"The federal government has a Religious Freedom Restoration Act.
Where's the outrage about that?"

The Federal Government Has PROTECTIONS for the groups the State of Indiana wishes to discriminate against. Obviously Indiana doesn't so on a State level their bigots can have their jollies AND have the State protect them!

The rest of the country isn't as stupid.

"The Senate's role is to advise and consent." That is done with a vote, not letting the Attorney General of the United States position to go vacant due to political gamesmanship.

The Country needs an Attorney General

and the GOP has got to learn how to govern eventually and "leadership" is also learning not being so politically petty.
